In celebration of National Reading Group Month (October), the Women's National Book Association has, for the first time, named 9 Great Group Reads. These books were chosen for their appeal to reading groups and their ability to generate lively discussion. "The committee also made a conscious decision to focus its attention on under-represented gems from small presses and lesser-known mid-list releases from larger houses." In other words, the books chosen here are listed to help book lovers find excellent reads that may be overlooked by the national bestseller hoopla. :0)

So here are the books on the inaugural Great Group Reads list:

Resources for and details on all the titles can be found at the National Reading Group Month website. So, if you host a book club or would simply like some good books to read, check out the site. Happy reading!
