The books are easily obtained from the library or local bookstores. A good size group always enriches our discussion please join us!  We welcome new members at any time.   When the group's monthly selection is not your particular type of read, please know your presence always enriches our meeting.

If you have already read the current month's book selection, the group might also suggest any of the books read within the past seasons as these have stimulated such good discussions.  Click on the links below for a list of the previous years' selections:

We usually meet the last Wedsnesday of each month at 12 noon, eight months of the year.  We do not meet in December, June, July or August.  Meetings are held in the Nazareth Center over lunch.   Bring your lunch and we'll provide the cookies!  One does not need to love the book to be able to add to the discussions, and a free exchange of ideas is the goal of each meeting. Each month, the discussion will be led by a volunteer from the group.  If you wish to be involved in this group but cannot attend this meeting, simply telephone the Parish office at (908) 889-2100.  It is the hope of the group that more readers will be added to the membership!  Happy reading!

* The March meeting will not be the last Wednesday of the month due to Holy Week.
