Finding Gobi: A Little Dog with a Very Big Heart by Dion Leonard

An Australian marathon runner tells the story of finding a stray dog while on a race across the Gobi desert. After keeping him company for many of the 155 miles of his ultramarathon in China, the dog disappeared, leaving the author determined to find her again. This title was recommended by book club member Abbie.


The Measure by Nikki Erlick

Eight ordinary people. One extraordinary choice. It seems like any other day. You wake up, pour a cup of coffee, and head out. But today, when you open your front door, waiting for you is a small wooden box. This box holds your fate inside: the answer to the exact number of years you will live. This title was recommended by book club member Tom.

If you are interested, this is the book brought up by Tom in our January discussion.
