Curious about where Lector Social Club received all Those stellar books?

They are all on loan and free to you courtesy of A Clean, Well-Lighted Place 

A Clean, Well-Lighted Place was founded to simply be there because "someone might need it," and takes its name from Ernest Hemingway's famous short-story.

How it works:

Membership to the library is and always will be free.

All that is needed is your name and an email address that you actually use. After that, you're all set to begin using the library.

There are no rules, catches, dues or demands. All that is asked is that you read gently and return your book as soon as you can.
