If you haven't heard of the Slow Readers Book Club, you can check out my introductory post for more info about how this club started. If you're interested in joining the book club (and you should be because it's fun, casual, all about reading, AND it's open to everyone so what's not to love?) you can join the conversation in our forum (signing up for an account is easy peasy). Introduce yourself to the hundreds of members and then jump into the conversation about the book. You can also find the Slow Readers on Twitter. Hope you'll join us!
