Read Harder Book Group Recap: January

It’s that time again! Time to celebrate our IRL Read Harder Book Groups, time to see what others were reading last month, and time to mark your calendars for next month. You can now join us in any of 10 different cities — get the full list and info here. Check out January’s fun below; see you next month?

And if you can’t join us in person, you can always head over to the Goodreads Read Harder Group for camaraderie and recs for the 2016 Read Harder Challenge!

Today I attended my first @bookriot Read Harder IRL group meet at @roscoe_books. Met some awesome booknerds, got really good book recommendations, and revelled in geeking out on books, bookishness, and Bookriot. Can't wait for next month! Also, picked up 'When Breath Becomes Air' by Paul Kalanithi (that neurosurgeon whose story has been going viral on social media recently). I was warned that it would be a tearjerker-I've been using books as a cathartic, coping mechanism and it's been working for me, so of course I had to buy it. All snuggled up now reading, and getting acquainted with the folks I met earlier tonight. #bookstagram #reading #books #bookworm #booknerd #readingchallenge #readinglife #bookriot #bookgeeks #booklove #bookish #readharder
