Book Club!

Join the NonPro Book Club!‘s read-along podcast series! ?

  • Each week, we’ll walk you, our favorite group of nerds, through the book we’ve chosen. ?
  • In a world filled with hot-takes of hit TV shows, blockbuster movies, and mass media – we’re going rogue by reading bad-ass books. ?

The NonPro Book Club will feature weekly check-ins and interesting articles, joint discussions, and even podcasts where we talk about this awesome thing we’re experiencing with one another. You can follow along at, or over at our Facebook group and/or our Discord server!
