Read, Discuss, Repeat
From 2005 to 2011, we encouraged readers to participate in a monthly shared reading experience. Every month, BookGuide featured a new book with links to background information, discussion questions, similar reading material, and a place for reader comments about the selected title. Although new entries of this feature have been discontinued, we have maintained an archive of all the past months' selections. So, check out a past Read...Discuss...Repeat! title, read it, then come back and leave your thoughts about any of the selected titles, or respond to other reader's opinions!
