Ajijic Book Club: 2018

A book club was a new experience for John Stokdijk and he had pondered whether he would enjoy reading books selected by others. The selections of 2017 alleviated that concern and 2018 proved to be equally interesting.  As the leader of the club, John read every book selected and wrote a report for the Ajijic Book Club website. Along with most members, he appreciated the wide variety of selections and the range of opinions that were expressed by members during discussions at meetings. Some books were truly extraordinary.
