Join Dear Reader.
Each day we'll email you a 5-minute portion of a book. During the week you can read 2-3 chapters and decide if you want to check the book out of the library. Every Monday we start new books. Sign up and start reading today.
Avoid the hassle of tracking down enough copies for your next discussion. These titles are available in multiple copies for you and your book club members to check out. For a printable list, click on any title.
