“It took me a long time and most of the world to learn what I know about love and fate and the choices we make, but the heart of it came to me in an instant, while I was chained to a wall and being tortured.\”

We will break down each issue into a series of discussions about ANY titles mentioned in that particular issue of Bookmarks, making the site easy for navigation and contribution.
By creating this group, we hope to bring together other subscribers of this amazing magazine and have interesting discussions on the books we choose (individually) to read from each issue.
As a new feature, we will nominate and vote for two books each month that were featured in the magazine to read as a group. (This is optional!)
We have many other book discussions and book games in progress - there is something for everyone, and we guarantee adding to your tbr list...thanks to Bookmarks!
