April Book Club – Thursday 4/14/11

Change of pace for April.  Since there was only a few of us for the Daytripper discussion, we didn’t decide on a book for April.  So, I decided to switch it up a little.  For April, it is going to be more of a roundtable setting.  More of an open discussion.  Things I am up […]
