Guys Read Discussion Guide from Penguin Books

The ECDC GUYS READ book club follows these same principles. The ECDC LIbrary will have a red GUYS READ BOOK CLUB display with books deemed Guy Read friendly. These books will not only be awesome, but we will continue to add to the collection for more guy reading fun.
