Coffee Chat (Adult Book Club): Please nominate the book you would like the group to read for May. For this first book, all genres are open. Please keep in mind that the book should not be incredibly long because we only have one month to read it. You can either nominate or second a book, but you cannot do BOTH. All nominations and seconds should be in by April 12th. The polls will be open until April 19th. That will leave a week to get the book. Please remember that the Houston County Public Library participates in the Inter-Library Loan Program if you need to order the book. The R.E.A.D.S. program (www.reads.lib.overdrive.com) is also available for digital books.

Sharon | 2 comments Coffee Chat does not focus on one book for all of its participants, it is a different kind of book club, where individuals bring whatever they are reading at the time.

My recommendation is Book 1 of the KGI Series by Maya Banks.

Thanks for clarifying this discrepancy, Sharon...I didn't think to include it earlier.
While our in-person Coffee Chat club does not have a monthly group read, we thought it would be nice to incorporate one here for individuals who enjoy doing them in their other book clubs.
While we encourage everyone to give it go, participation is completely optional :)

These are great nominations so far!
Letter to My Daughter by Maya Angelou Letter to My Daughter by Maya Angelou Seconded
Tangerine by Christine Mangan Tangerine by Christine Mangan
The Darkest Hour (KGI, #1) by Maya Banks The Darkest Hour by Maya Banks
The Last Magician (The Last Magician, #1) by Lisa Maxwell The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell
