Select Book Options for Doha Book Group

Vote on your favorite 15 books to read.
Votes to be tallied on October 1st, with the selected books announced at the October meeting.

I have created a spreadsheet with the descriptions of each book. It is too much information to post, so send me your email, and I will forward the spreadsheet to you. It will allow you to make informed choices without too much effort. If you’d like to participate, then vote on what you’d like to read!
