Current Book Discussions 
Our book discussions last for 2 or 3 months each and are staggered so new book discussions are starting every month. You'll find all the information you need directly below: book titles, authors, genres, start and end dates for discussions, and links to the discussion forums. Try to buy or borrow your books early so you're ready for the discussions as soon as they begin. Author interviews or live chats may be scheduled for each book.
