How much do you love to read?! If the answer is "a ton," you should get involved in Saratoga Reads! Saratoga Reads is a non-profit organization that bases community activities and discussions around a single book that everyone is invited to read. 

Each year, the community nominates fiction and non-fiction works for consideration and Saratoga Reads' Selection Advisory Group narrows them down to five favorites. The public votes on which favorite they want to read the most, and the winner is designated as the Saratoga Reads book for that year! Yesterday, the Selection Advisory Group announced their Final Five, and we're having a hard time choosing which one is our favorite!
