I am adding this as a blog page so that it is easy to come back to and share for those that want to check-in. We will be reading and discussing a book every month.
On the 15th of every month, we will post a discussion of our book under the hashtag #DandansBookClub The discussion will go for an entire day before I take suggestions in creating the next 4-6 book poll that will be posted for 24 hours. The winner of the poll then becomes the book discussed for the next month.
Dandan’s Book Club will accept any suggestions, but because of popular demand by those who first wanted to be part of it (and my tastes), we will focus on authors who are BIPOC with an emphasis on female authors. I am also a big fan of speculative fiction, but open to any genre as long as it is available at local libraries and amazon/online book stores as paper and ebook for ease of finding.
