Easy Readers Book Group  


Easy Readers Book Group is not directly related to the work of Armchair France, but avid readers love to share what they've read.

Following are our selections over the past years, with our consensus rating on one-to-five scale, with 5 hearts (♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥) superb and one heart (♥)  not recommended. The fewer the hearts, the less likely we are to recommend it to a friend.
