Previous Book Selections Since 2004

Since this book club has been recently revived, you may be interested in some of the books we have read over the years. The list below, in no particular order, is a selection of books we have read since we started in the Autumn of 2004. This does not include the poetry we always end up reading at each meeting. From the very first meeting, we took turns reading to each other some of our favorite poems, or poetry we had been reading lately, and this became a tradition at each meeting.
