Do you love reading? Do you have several stacks of books you’ve been meaning to read but haven’t had the time (or you have too many other books to read)? Do you want to add to those stacks?

Introducing the Austin360 Book Club, a virtual book club led by Austin360 and Statesman staffers. We’ll be reading one book each month, starting on Sept. 1. We’ll host a book discussion in the group, via Facebook Live, on the final Thursday of each month. And as the group grows, stay tuned for events, special guests, giveaways and more!

Want to join? Simply request to join our Facebook group here and we’ll get started! Since the group primarily exists on Facebook, you don’t even have to live in Austin to be a part of it. Even though we won’t be reading our first book until next month, we’ll be hosting discussions, sharing book recommendations and book-related news from Austin360, the Statesman and our partners. 

To get started, check out our summer reading recommendations, as well as the books you told us you’re reading this summer. Happy reading!
