Share your love of reading and get inspiration about what to read next. At "Any Book Book Club" we do not have a set book, instead each person shares what they are currently reading or what they have read in the past month. It doesn't matter if you loved or loathed it, all we need is an opinion. We share our books monthly in a cafe setting over a cup of coffee.
