January Seattle Mtg.: I Was Told There'd Be Cake by Sloane Crosley

Meeting will be on the 3rd Saturday of the month (per usual)
Saturday January 18th at 7pm
We will be discussing
"I Was Told There'd Be Cake" by Sloane Crosley

BACK AT IN THE RED!: In The Red was again the winning vote to hold this meet up!

-For now the RSVP list remains "No Limits"!  No excuses... get in get it read ...and  there will be nobody left out! 

-Suggested donation of $2 per meeting to offset the cost of keeping our group online and various expenses (such as meeting space) as they may arise - There is a donate on line option here on our meetup page and the "Hat" (book purse will be passed at the meeting). 

-Along with discussion questions please bring any venue suggestions for future meet ups 

Info about the locations should include parking options, size (and cost) of space, availability, beverage and food selection (don't need whole menu, but if the selections are extensive or sparse etc.), address- or general neighborhood, and whatever other information that may seem relevant.  For this (our Seattle) meeting all locations must be in the city of Seattle.

If you would like to have a meeting outside the city limits please contact me (Shannon) and we can most likely make that happen. Also, if you would like to have a discussion of another book at another time (other than our 'regular' book and meetings) please let me know and I can help make that happen too!

    Thanks for another fun book club! I fixed the google doc (book suggestion list) to show the current year's titles at the top. I also added Devil In The White City to the bottom of the suggestions list. Please let me know if things get out of whack again -- happy to fix.

    I'm so sorry I wasn't able to make this meeting today-- suffice it to say that today's experience confirmed that my gall bladder & I will be separated.
    I regret the timing-- and will look forward to connecting with this interesting group of women
    down the road.

      Wowza! Well, we can raise a toast to your gall bladder and bid it a fond adeau :D Looking forward to seeing you (with or without gall bladder) soon!

    Aaaaah! Just realized I double booked by mistake! There is NO WAY to get out of the other thing because it involves my condo and lots of people in it. So sorry! I am putting my year calendar together TODAY so this does not happen again. Have a great night and tip one back for me!

    January 13, 2014

    • Shannon C.

      Floggings will ensue shortly ;) ...but seriously Mo, you will be missed!

      1 · January 17, 2014

    • Mo

      LOL! Seriously, it happened solely because I had not put my calendar together for the year yet! I usually do it in December, but Argentina and the holidays did me in! Oh, and all the damned exercising since November -- takes up soooooo much time! Fourteen hours a week are just gone!

    Sadly, I have to change my RSVP to no. But I'd love it if someone could summarize what everyone thought of the book after the meeting. I'm always interested in what you lovely ladies think!

    January 14, 2014

    • Shannon C.

      I will see what I can do Nora. I have always wanted to have some kind of summation and/or online discussion of ea book.

      NOOOO... say it isn't so Betty! Bummer. We will miss you but greatly appreciate your donations and generosity. Looking forward to seeing you again in February!

    I recently joined this group. I'd love to attend the meeting. I read the book last year but I don't remember all the essays. I would love to show up and see how the group runs.

    • Shannon C.

      Diana, reading the book is not a requirement so you are already way ahead of the game :) We would love to have you join our meetup on the 18th! Feel free to show up or rsvp and show up. Either way, you are welcome and we look forward to meeting you!
