National Reading Group Month

October is National Reading Group Month. The Women's National Book Association is launching this event "to mark the 90th anniversary of the Association's founding."
Their mission is
"To bring about public awareness of the joy of shared reading.
To provide a time for existing groups to celebrate their accomplishments and make plans for the future.
To encourage libraries, bookstores, and various organizations to host special events for reading groups.
To provide opportunities for individuals to get involved in an existing reading group or start one of their own. "
See the exhibit in the gallery for ideas about how to form a reading group and what to read. Thanks to Tressie for the nice exhibit!
