“Groucho Marx had it right when he said, ‘Outside a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside a dog it’s too dark to read,’” quotes Julie. “So I was excited when Sally Barnes’ book Unleashed came across my desk.”

The themes allow for a lot of flexibility and creativity, so generally you are able to avoid books that don’t appeal to you – a common book club pitfall.
