Welcome to R/Bookclub

This "club" is open to all and there's no enrollment. Dive in. We post about certain specific works. Most activity is for books selected (by vote) for the current month, but you can post about any previous selection any time. Don't post about other stuff til you read the FAQ; if you post about some random book we delete your post.

The selected book of the month will have a schedule but you don't have to observe the schedule.
