What Columbus, OH is Reading: November 2019

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

Silent Book Club Columbus meets on the second Tuesday of every month and this time we met at Raising Cane’s in Clintonville. I love their chicken and sweet tea, and having food options is nice for the folks who come to Silent Book Club immediately after work.

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:

  • These Witches Don't Burn by Isabel Sterling
