E-comm: Top 10 Books to Read in 2019

Remember when book clubs were a thing?

Not long ago, before social media was what it is now, we were big on books and reading. We mean, what else were we going to do with our free time? We're not saying reading went anywhere, just that it's fallen off our radar in the way that it once existed.

But if you take one look at the best-selling list, you'll find there's actually tons of books, all by women might we add, that have got us currently craving a good read. Michelle, Oprah, Kamala—the gang's all here!
