Joining a monthly book club can be an exciting way to grow the bond within your relationship and open your horizons to reading literature you may not have considered in the past. Lucky for you, Oxford Exchange‘s monthly book club (virtual and in-person options) will get you acquainted with new reading material!
Over the course of this year, I rediscovered a love for reading. My husband and I have made several trips to the library and local bookstores to keep ourselves entertained and to educate ourselves on new topics. We spend hours browsing through shelves of options, selecting a new book, and getting lost in the pages! Additionally, once you both have completed the same book you can have meaningful discussions on how the book made you feel.
What To Know
