Book Group Choices January 2012-April 2013 by Author

Updated May 3, 2013

We have also arranged the Book Group Choices chronologically, January 2012-April 2013 by date

Each image of a star indicates how many bookgroups have
selected the title since 2002, as we have carried over the stars from earlier
author lists (see below). No image of a stars means the book has only been selected once. Non-fiction titles are in Bold. Children’s titles have a juv after the title and Young Adult titles have a YA .
