The reading list for all group members.

Many of us have been doing this type of thing informally for years now; loaning books out to a select group to share information and ideas that we think are important for all of us to know.  With the formation of our FB group, and the semi-select nature of it’s members I think it’s time that we make this idea a little more formal. 

Below are a list of books that the members of the group recommend to other members.  I ask that you feel free to suggest books to the group that you think would be good resources for all of us to share.  There are some rules on the book club though, and since this was kind of my idea I guess I’m responsible for keeping order in this corner of our world.


-All books listed must actually be owned by a member of the group and available for loan to other members of the group.

-You, as the borrower, are responsible for the exact replacement of a book should it become damaged.  If it is an autographed copy or first edition, keep that in mind when you accept a loan.

-It is suggested that you take only one book at a time.

-Please give a brief (one sentence is fine) review of the book when you are done so others can know if you liked it or not.

-Books should be fun, but please try to keep the list relevant to the group.

-Take use of the books listed on here.  We offer up their use for a reason, and we wouldn’t do that if we didn’t want you to read them.

-All books will be listed with the author’s first and last name, title, and the initials of who owns it.

-To add your own books or make suggestions feel free to email me at
