How do I know if I will like this book club?
You don't, until you try it. If you like to read a variety of books, see the world from different points of view and laugh, then you might like this book club.
 
Who are we?
We are a group of sassy, eclectic women of all ages with open hearts and open minds. We read quirky, sometimes laugh-out-loud fiction, nonfiction, biography and autobiography that may or may not have made the New York Times' Bestseller List. No Sci-Fi, Fantasy, or Horror here. We explore books that are told from a different point of view: a different culture, a different gender, or a different mental or physical condition. We like to expand our minds and tickle our funny bones at the same time!
