I am a social worker in Cabarrus County, North Carolina.  I work at an organization called Opportunity House and I am trying to start a book club for some of the readers who frequent our House.  I would love to purchase some credits.  The first book that I have selected to try is titled "Redeeming Love" by Francine Rivers.  Please give your input and ideas to help this new adventure as we serve the homeless of Cabarrus County.

 Reading is a great way for the homeless population to pass the time as they wait for job interviews, agencies to open, and /or just an avenue to get their minds off of their situation.

Thank you for any ideas.
