36529_10151196559186478_1476072028_n2014 Pulpwood Queen Book Club Selections, so far…

As the founder of the Pulpwood Queens Book Club all books are selected after reading stacks of books and are chosen with great care and deliberation. Our main selection each month is the book we are to read to be discussed.

Our backlist selection is also one I recommend to read that is a book that is not new but one that I feel did not get the readership it so deserved, or classic that should be read, thus I call this new reading initiative, A GOOD BOOK IS A GOOD BOOK!

Our Bonus book club selections are for our voracious readers and highly recommend you read all of them. I do!

Our Teen to Children’s books are selected as so many of our Pulpwood Queens as part of their literacy initiatives have started book club chapters for the younger set.

The way we see it, our future book club members.

The Pulpwood Queens are an inclusive book club. We welcome all to join. Our motto is “where tiaras are mandatory and reading good books is the RULE!” Our sole mission and purpose is to promote authors, books, literacy, reading and help undiscovered authors get discovered in a big way!

A Lifetime Membership is $25 and includes your official certificate and membership card.

Beauty and the Book accepts all major credit cards but you may also send check payable to:
