Book Babes is sponsored by Del Mar Community Connections and is open to anyone who would like to join us. All babes (and dudes) are welcome and we guarantee a lively discussion! The Babes read books on any subject that interests us, which we choose by discussion and consensus. Our only rule is that a book has to be available in a range of media, including paperback. We meet on the last Thursday of the month from 2-3 pm at the Del Mar Community Building.

Here are some titles we have read so far:

Confederates in the Attic by Tony Horwitz

  • The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
  • The Hummingbird’s Daughter by Luis Urrea
  • The History of Love by Nicole Krauss
  • The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce
  • Land of A Hundred Wonders by Lesley Kagen
  • Wild by Cheryl Strayed

In the coming months we will be reading:

  • Me Before You by JoJo Moyes
  • Defending Jacob by William Landay
  • Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver
  • My Beloved World by Sonia Sotomayor
  • Lost in Shangri-La by Mitchell Zuckoff

We enjoy talking about the books we disliked as much as those we loved!
