July Book Club Pick - Tales of a Female Nomad
*Please note that this post contains affiliate links.
This month we switched things up a bit and voted between three completely different books than we have voted on all year. The vote is in and I'm really excited to announce the next book! This book is called "Tales of a Female Nomad" and is all about a woman (at age 48) who decides to follow her dream to travel the world. It's a New York Times Bestseller and has great reviews on amazon, so I'm really looking forward to digging into 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.
