June Book Club Pick - Jungle by Yossi Ghinsberg
*Please note that this post contains affiliate links.
We have had six solid months of book club fun so far in 2018, and I'm really stoked to announce the next book! This book is called "Jungle" and is not to be confused with Upton Sinclair's famous novel called "The Jungle". I actually first heard about this story by watching the amazon prime video and then thought it would make an excellent selection for the Dream of the Alpine Book Club. If you haven't checked out the film, you definitely should, though if you plan to read this month's pick maybe wait until after you're finished reading! I can't wait to see what everyone thinks about this one.
If you're new to the book club and want to vote on our next book club selection, the vote takes place each month by the book club members on our Facebook group.
From the Amazon description of the book:
I have quick links to the book on amazon or audible below:
