[close] Reading books for a monthly club doesn't always work out. This book club is for sharing books you love or want to talk about, especially (but not limited to) sci-fi, fantasy, romance, and non-fiction that might inform speculative fiction in interesting ways. Keeping the group private for now as a way to interact with RL connections, but I'll invite anyone a group member wants to include!
