It’s easy to get lost in a good book. Once you start, if you’re really into it, you could just keep reading for hours and hours. Plus, there are all kinds of crazy benefits reading can have on the brain. Besides the fact that it’s entertaining, reading can also help reduce stress, improve your memory and vocabulary, strengthen your concentration, and build up analytical thinking skills. If you’re not reading anything right now, this could be the perfect time to hop into a book club! And lucky for you, there’s one right in your town.
Book Discussions at the Muskogee Public Library happen frequently, so there’s always a good time to get started! If you’re interested in joining, keep reading to get the details, and get ready to crack open a good book.
What You’ll Read About
The theme for the season has been World War II, so all of the books have touched on or been about the time surrounding the war in some way, shape, or form. Some of the books are based on actual history, and some feature an alternate history. Either way, they’re all enjoyable and knowledgable, and if you’re a fan history you’ll fit right in!
