Book a Day: Reading List & Author Chats

Reading Group Choices introduces its Book a Day program for your reading enjoyment and morale!

We’re posting a new or classic book recommendation each day to boost your book intake, with absorbing reads to occupy and entertain.

Though created by conversations over what a book vitamin might look like during these uncertain times, we also hope it creates a pattern for more reading in the future.

Some of our Book a Day selections feature Facebook Live events with authors. We hope to receive questions from you and encourage interactive conversation. Even though your book groups might not be meeting right now, we are lucky to still have ways to communicate.

Here’s to finding other worlds and stories to get lost in and continuing the conversation through new modes of discussion! Share the news and follow us on Facebook and Twitter to never miss a dose…
