The Don't Wait Book Club Picks

By Great Gray Days

The Don't Wait Book Club, established in April 2018, was started by myself and one of my best friends from college, literary work wife, and fellow linguistics enthusiast, Phoebe. We started it as a way to stay connected to both each other and our literary lives. As avid writers, exchanging our own stories and essays every month already, we thought we would up the ante by reading together as well. Each month we switch responsibility for the selection of at least one book. If anything, I think this list proves how much this book club has challenged us to read books we may have never picked up on our own! - Happy Reading, Leandra (aka Lan)
