If one of your resolutions for this year was to read more books, be sure to check out REEF Into the Blue Book Club, which brings together readers who are passionate about the ocean and conservation. This book club is completely virtual, so you can participate from the comfort of home. Here's how it works: each quarter, we select a book about the ocean, marine science, environmental conservation, or diving. Over the next several months, members read the book and may share their thoughts on the Into the Blue Facebook group. At the end of the quarter, we host a meeting via Zoom to discuss the book, and the author often joins in!

It's free and easy to join - just fill out the online registration form here. As a book club member, you will receive emails with information on the chosen books, meeting reminders, and discussion questions. Members are also invited to join the Into the Blue Facebook group, which is the best way to stay up to date, share thoughts on the books as you're reading, and get to know your fellow readers.

The next book club meeting will be on Thursday, April 21 at 8pm EDT. We will be discussing our latest book selection, Emperors of the Deep: Sharks - The Ocean's Most Mysterious, Most Misunderstood, and Most Important Guardians by William McKeever. The author will also be attending this meeting! For more information about Into the Blue Book Club, visit www.REEF.org/bookclub.
