Kappa Delta’s Book Club Picks
While we continue to do our part during the coronavirus pandemic by staying at home, you may find that settling into a good book is the perfect remedy for cabin fever. Books allow us to escape for a few hours and transport us beyond our reality and into someone else’s imaginary world. If you enjoy reading as a hobby or are looking for a little entertainment during this time, try picking up a good book!
