The aim of the Bookclub is to produce a book list of good helpful reference, academic and self help work books. Their other serious aim is:

“to enjoy sharing and reading books that have added to our lives.”

Every month they will post details for 2 books on their Facebook page and online Forum which they have chosen to read and review.

Book 1 will be a non fiction book on some aspect of autism
Book 2 will be sheer book indulgence and books that have been loved and need to be shared
