The Literary Lush Book Club

Just for fun, here is the list of books that our “Literary Lush” book club has read. At least the ones I have read too. Most of these were read for the club, but a few were ones I read previously - those posts pre-date the club discussion - and some I read afterward, because I missed the discussion. A few of the books were “optional” second books for a given month that a few of us read.
