Book Club: September Selection

This month, I'm digging back in the archives of my ever growing list of books to read. The book is almost 20 years old so you may have read it. If so, read on for some alternatives to try this month.

Barbara Kingsolver's The Poisonwood Bible is a story told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce, evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them everything they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it—from garden seeds to Scripture—is calamitously transformed on African soil. What follows is a suspenseful epic of one family's tragic undoing and remarkable reconstruction over the course of three decades in postcolonial Africa. (source)

If you read this month's book years ago, consider a re-read. If you're not up for that, I suggest a couple of quick reads like: 

One More Thing by B. Novak 

You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero 

10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Actually Works--A True Story by Dan Harris. 

Happy Reading!
