[close] Welcome to Short & Sweet Treats! We are here to read books together, engage in discussions, and have fun. We play lots of games and read lots of good books! Each month, we will read a different genre voted by our members, at 200 pages or less. This is great for those who may have busy schedules and is also a good way to acquaint yourself with a genre you haven't tried yet. You may end up discovering you like a new genre you never would have imagined. Active participation is encouraged. But much like desserts and other treats, take what you want and leave the rest. Having fun is mandatory :)
