Each canvas tote bag checks out for six weeks and contains 10 copies of a discussible title, usually a large type, audio material, and an information package with a summary, book reviews, biographical information, discussion questions, an author interview, and suggestions for further reading. The bag also includes a sign-up sheet for the leader to keep track of who has which book.
