2020 book club picks

Books » Our lists » 2020 book club picks

Twenty 2020 titles to keep your book club humming.

Some books are solo endeavours – literary tomes best tackled alone (and all in good time). Others are flat-out too embarrassing to share with your book club buddies (we won’t tell anyone). And then there are books that are simply made to be ruminated upon, digested and shared (once a month with a select group of friends and virtual strangers). Here are twenty 2020 titles calling out for their book-club homes.
