Shift Book Club by Kyle Knight
My personal reading journey began years ago! I’ve always been interested in reading but was slow to finish books. I started to read more regularly in 2019. On a trip to Barnes & Noble, I asked my partner Shane to pick out a book for me to read. He chose Zoo✤ by James Patterson. I finished the book in three days and realized how much I loved reading and how quickly I could finish a good book! Since then, I have collected over 200 books! (pictured below) I read all genres, but some of my favorite books are Historical Fiction & Fantasy.
The Book Club is kicking off 2022 with reading One Thousand White Women by Jim Fergus for the January book of the month. Our 2021 book club lineup included The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett, Verity by Colleen Hoover, The Midnight Library by Matt Haig, Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro, The Maidens by Alex Michaelides, The Neighbor’s Secret by L. Allison Heller, Beautiful World Where Are You by Sally Rooney and Malibu Risingꦯ by Taylor Jenkins Reid. Check out what some of our members had to say when asked about some of their favorite reads!

Audiobook or physical book? Both have their merits, but I love the feel and smell of a good physical book
Favorite book of all time? Little Women. Whenever I read and reread this book there are always new themes that are relevant to me. It sees and empowers women through every stage of life, which in turn empowers me
First book that you remember reading? The Secret Garden with my mom and my twin sister when I was about 5 or 6. It was the first book I remember thinking that anything was possible, and it kickstarted my reading journey in the best way. I still reread it sometimes if I’m in a reading rut, just to remind myself of the magic that books can bring me
