What We're Reading This Month

As we near the end of a year that has left many of us reaching for books even more than normal, we thought we’d share some favorites – one for each month of the year – recommended by Room to Read staff and board members around the world.

These are books we read this year or have long turned to again and again. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do. Wishing you a wonderful holiday season and a hopeful and inspired new year.
