November's Book

For November, we have a little change. Sarah is choosing the book instead of Shannyn. She is super busy with Christmas prep, so Sarah will fill in.

The book for November is: The Great Gatsby by: F. Scott Fitzgerald

I have a copy of the book.  When I'm done reading it, someone can borrow it. Does anyone else have a copy we can pass around?

Happy Reading!
