Books Read by our Book Club

The book club I belong to has been discussing a book a month since 2003, which adds up to a pretty impressive list of books!  Looking at the collated list, I see that we have a definite penchant for fiction and books with international settings/themes.  I feel so very fortunate to be able to discuss literature with a group of women so intelligent and inquisitive!
