2010 National Reading Group Month List

October is National Reading Group Month, which was founded to to promote reading groups and to just encourage reading in general. With a book club you can read a variety of books and go over questions that make you think about the plot and the characters. Reading contextualizes our life experiences and allows us to dream about the different forks in the road one can take. See the Library’s Good Reads page to find local book clubs.

To inspire you to read, here's a quotation from The English Patient - Hana is reading again, this time to herself: She entered the story knowing she would emerge from it feeling she had been immersed in the lives of others, in plots that stretched back twenty years, her body full of sentences and moments, as if awaking from sleep with a heaviness caused by unremembered dreams.
