If you enjoy books about self-improvement, creativity, happiness, and storytelling, this is the club for you. Here’s what we have planned for next year:

In addition to a new suite of selections, the 2019 Book Club will bring some minor changes. Beginning January 1, we’ll be releasing the discussion guide at the beginning of the month so that you can read with a scrapbooker’s perspective in mind and start discussing the book in the blog comments. Then, at the end of the month, our Book Club chat will move to the My Simple Scrapper community. We’re excited to continue this special tradition and hope you’ll participate.
