Looking for a good book to read? A group of friends and I got together to discuss favorite books we've read this year. It's a fun, smart, eclectic group of women who enjoy reading and don't really care about what's on the New York Times booklist or what Oprah recommends.

Have you ever thought of all the ways to discover a good book? Lists galore, newspaper reviews, blogsites, websites, but I think my favorite is a recommendation from a good friend.

There are lots to choose from so I know you will find one or two that interest you. Here is the list:
