Pia, this isn't an author's birthday, but a book off the shelves of a group member whose birthday is in March. There is a thread with links to all the members birthday's divided by month that will link you to their profiles then you can search their shelves or compare books until you find something you would like to read.



Rachel | 92 comments 2. Birthday: Read a book from a March B-day celebrant.

Okay, I'm confused by this one as well. Does this mean a GR member who's b-day is in March? I know there's a b-day thread, so would I just pick a book off one of their shelves or do I need to ask one of them for a recommendation?
