Tonette CherryThe best Book Club Ever meets at the Brooklyn Branch Enoch Pratt Library. Soda and coffee served as refreshments, an it is a comfortable and relaxed setting. There is a group of us ladies who meet every three months to discuss the books we have read and general issues concerning the neighborhood and the library. Our last meeting was in March, 2013 and it was quite interesting because for the first time a gentlemen came to the book club and shared some of his ideas with us.

The ladies in this club are very avid readers and I will name them according to what they like to read: We have Ms. "Murder Mysteries"—she has read all of James Patterson’s & Mary Higgins Clark; Ms. "I’m Versatile"—she has read everything from Anne Perry  to David Baldacci; then there's Ms. "Feisty"—she has read every Janet Evanovich book, and she is serious—do not play with her—if we’re reading a book she has not read, and there is only one copy, she has to have it first.

Brooklyn Branch Book Club 

One of the librarians at the Brooklyn Branch, Ms. Linda Schwartz, heads the book club. She is an advocate non-fiction books, so I will give her a nickname too: Ms. “Non-Fiction”. Some of the books she has recommended (and that I have enjoyed reading) are This Life is In Your Hands: One Dream, Sixty Acres, And A Family Undone by Melissa Coleman, The Girl with the Braided Hair by Margaret Coel, and The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie.

Joining this book club is one of the smartest decisions I have made. Think about it—I get to read and learn for FREE.

That is the best part.
