Fully Booked

Bookworm without a clue? Let the experts at Scottsdale bookstore Poisoned Pen, 4014 North Goldwater Boulevard, Suite 101, pick your poison for you.

With several book clubs -- each dedicated to a different genre -- there's plenty of flavors for even the most voracious novel nerd to choose from. At 7 p.m. on Thursday, July 24, the Hardboiled Crime Club convenes at the Poisoned Pen to discuss Jonathan Woods' debut novel, A Death In Mexico. Real people in an actual room together, discussing a book that they've all actually read...voluntarily. How wildly contrarian. You hardly see such a thing in schools nowadays. For more details on how to get involved in a Poisoned Pen book club, visit or call 480-947-2974. Book club start times vary.
