Fifty Book Challenge Group to Meet

Reading fifty books in fifty-two weeks may seem daunting, but share the goal with a supportive group and it can be a lot of fun. Community members are invited to come to the next meeting of the 50 Book Challenge at Bernardsville Public Library on Saturday, May 12 at 3:00 pm. The meeting, which will include animated discussion, snacks, and reading suggestions, will take place in the library’s Community Room. There, ambitious readers will trade notes on their progress as well as book recommendations. We will also focus on three books that are popular with the group, “The Dove Keepers” by Alice Hoffman, “The Elegance of the Hedgehog” by Muriel Barbery, and “In the Garden of Beasts” by Erik Larson. New members are welcome at any time during the year and will be invited to additional events in the coming months.

The fifty books in fifty-two weeks are suggested, not required, for participation in the program. Each reader will choose which reading “counts” as part of the total. There are no limitations as to what formats can be read: downloaded books, audiobooks, e-books and graphic novels are all acceptable.
