For the Busy Book Clubber

Everyone and their great aunt has been talking about this one since it debuted in August 2018! Give the gift of the audiobookâ€”read by fan-favorite narrator Cassandra Campbellâ€”to that busy bee in your life who hasnâ€™t quite had the time to join the rest of the hive. Reese Witherspoon thinks it’s a great idea.
