Are you participating in our 2023 Jax Stacks Reading Challenge? Do you want to? Do you need a few more ideas for books you can read for that one elusive category? Check out our Reading Challenge book club! Each month we'll get together to talk about that month's featured categories as well as books that you have read or will read for any of the categories in the challenge. No reading is required to attend this book club, just an interest in our reading challenge and the ability to talk about great books!
