For avid readers and books they are reading. An easy way to connect. An added incentive is the constructive hobby that will help during and after B-School admissions.

I think this group can serve 2 purposes.
1. Sharing your currently reading shelf, so that others can get good suggestions.
2. Writing short reviews about just read books, to give all an idea of whether they want to embark on that read or not.
Any other suggestions?

Reading "Me Before you" by jojo moyes
Not the kind of book you will read to increase your knowledge but it's a really emotional book which will make you feel emotions that you may have never felt.
Think things you never thought.And will basically make you cry your heart out.
