Book Suggestions

As we’re about to choose our next book selections, I had a look through the Hamilton Library’s Book Club Kit list to see if I could find some interesting books to suggest.
I found A LOT of great books...and as an added bonus, there is quite a bit of Canadian fiction on this list!
I've linked each book to its Amazon page in case you want to read more about any of them.
So here they are:

  1. Wow, looks like a lot of the books from the library would be good reads. There are a few on the list the i've read and liked too. I'd definitely be up for picking some from that list for our next selections.
