Our October Book Selections are ready. Our LBC Monthly Book Discussion process is as easy as 1 - 2 - 3.

1. Three books are identified as the October Book Discussion Selections.
Selections are posted early so you can prepare and schedule your reading to be ready for October book discussions by the 1st of October.
2. You will then choose which and how many book discussion groups you will participate with for the month. It's up to you based on your comfort level and with no pressure. Discussion groups should be decided by the End of September.
3. Once discussion groups are formed, together you will decide when to begin your book discussion. Keep in mind all discussions need to be completed by the last day of the month, so you're ready for new discussions for the next month. Start dates should be determined by no later than the 1st of October.


October book selections are listed below. A discussion thread is started for each book selection. Please reply to the book discussion thread you want to participate with for the month. Then each group will continue their discussion in the same book thread to determine their discussion start date.
