What Columbus, OH is Reading: February 2020

This guest post comes to us from Mandy Shunnarah-Reed, book blogger, writer, and host of the Columbus, Ohio chapter of Silent Book Club. It was originally posted on her blog, Off the Beaten Shelf

One of the things I look forward to every month is the Columbus, Ohio chapter of Silent Book Club meeting. Everyone brings their own book and reads together quietly for an hour, then we all nerd out about books afterward. If you're in the area, you should come hang out with us!

We meet on the second Tuesday of every month and this time we met at Raising Cane’s in the Clintonville neighborhood.

We kick off the meeting with a quick round of introductions where everyone says their name and a little about what they're reading. I always take notes and post the full book list the next day. 

It's a great way for everyone to learn about books they might like and I've picked up several books I loved based on what people were reading and recommended to the group.

Here's what the group is reading this month:
