HOW WE SELECT THE BOOKS WE READ

Members vote on a list of books which they have read and recommended to the group.

BOOK SELECTION CRITERIA 

Members must have read the book they recommend (not just have relied on a review).

The book must cost less than $30, which in most cases means it is available in paperback or as an e-book.  

BOOK AVAILABILITY

Many of the books are available at local libraries.   

It is also usually possible to borrow books from other members of the group, if needed.
