Be The Hero Of Your Book Club

Reading good books ruins you for enjoying bad books. —Mary Ann Shaffer, The Guernsey Literary and Sweet Potato Peel Pie Society

I have a love/hate relationship with book clubs. Love—because what's not to love about getting together with friends who love books and consuming large quantities of treats? Hate—because I'm sometimes forced to read books I would never choose and find a polite way of saying that slogging through said book made me want to scratch my eyes out.

We care about you and your eyes, so we've compiled a list of guaranteed crowd pleasers. Throw in some edible delights and you're sure to be a star.
