Great Group Reads 2012

Reading Group Choices is pleased to share the Women’s National Book Association (WNBA) Great Group Reads 2012 list, part of their National Reading Group Month initiative!

This annual month-long celebration provides an opportunity for reading groups worldwide to celebrate their accomplishments and plan for the future.
