Discussion // I’m the Book Club Reject

Sitting quietly in the corner of the library, or coffee shop, or wherever the latest local book club decides to meet and reminisce over this week’s reading, that is me eavesdropping on the book chat. Yes. Me. Eavesdropping.

Book Blog Discussions // Chatting About More Than Reviews
