FEBRUARY BOOKS OF THE MONTH!
HAPPY NEW YEAR, RRBC!!!
We will admit to not having read all of these, but we trust that if you select a read which you find is not up to par (in your opinion), that you will give it your HONEST REVIEW and maybe, that HONEST review will help the author to take a closer look at their work, to ensure that it is the best that it can be. WE ARE NOT ABOUT GIVING ALL 5* REVIEWS here at #RRBC, we are about giving HONEST REVIEWS, whatever they may be.
We encourage all of our members to support these awesomely deserving members by going out and getting the e-book or paperback copy of their books (or pick one that you’d most like to read) so that you’re able to join in the discussion of these fabulous books on our next Book Club Discussion day. We ask that you please post a review after you’ve finished the read. PLEASE REMEMBER: Support these authors so that when it is your book here, you are supported in the same grand fashion!
By having 3 BOMS, we are able to profile more of our member-authors in a more timely fashion, while also giving our members a “choice” of the books & genres they’d like to read.
Please join us for our next BOOK CLUB DISCUSSION which will be February 15, 2018 @ 1 PM CT!!!
We began our year with high expectations of so many of our awesome members being in attendance at our monthly meetings, just as we did in 2017.
Week At-A-Glance in RRBC
