      Hi Kate and John (Jeff you weren't there!) would you RSVP to the next meetup (even if not attending) so it can be viewable to the group?

    Can the meetup location be clarified as I am finding multiple businesses with this street address. Thanks!

      Matthew Fleming says The backroom at "Beer" (ridiculous name) next to "Meat cheese bread" would be a good spot. It's like a german beer hall kinda thing.

      I have no idea about it either- just passing the word from what he said early on

    Can we push it back a week? I haven't even had a chance to pick it up yet, and it's a holiday weekend. Any opposed?

      I think so. I went ahead and got it.

    Ok you people. Someone needs to set a date.

    It is neck and neck between Leftovers and Sex! I wonder which will win out?

      Matt - I think because it's your book it falls to you to get us organized! Also, I lost my damn kindle, so I'm kind of in mourning.

      oh..that sucks! The backroom at "Beer" (ridiculous name) next to "Meat cheese bread" would be a good spot. It's like a german beer hall kinda thing.

    It looks like it is the Leftovers for next time!

    I'm re-posting this to the "next book ideas anyone?" thread.
    I propose "The Leftovers" by Tom Perrotta as the next book. Please see this review: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/28/books/review/the-leftovers-by-tom-perrotta-book-review.html?_r=0

    and this Fresh Air interview: http://www.npr.org/2012/05/25/153597255/examining-the-leftovers-after-the-rapture

    I started reading it and it's very entertaining and the co-creator of Lost is developing it into a show for HBO. Yes, a little more low-brow than our last books.

    Hey Everyone - I mentioned this to a couple people, but I suggest that we purposefully read a book by a female author. I realized that I rarely read books by women (let's talk bout why!), so this is a great chance to do so. I propose we read The History of Love, by Nicole Krauss.
