Meet and Greet Breakfast / First Book Selection

Book Club Selection: Beyond Heaving Bosoms by Sarah Wendell and Candy Tan

Hi all,

Thank you for joining, I'm excited to get this group going! For our first meetup, I would like a meet and greet, and of course discuss a book! For our first reading, I selected not a romance novel, but a book about romance novels and those who love them! Some of you might have read it already, but if you loved it as much as I did, you won't mind re-reading it. I'm planning this for next month so everyone has time to get and read it. I think it will be a great way to break the ice!

Hope to you see you there!

PS: I chose La Note because it is close enough to the Downtown Berkeley BART that anyone who has no access to a car can join as well

    What a fun inaugural event! Nghiem is a sweet host with boundless enthusiasm for romance novels. I'm looking forward to spending more time with my romance novel fangirls . . .

    I'm not sure if I can be seated before everyone in the party is there so if I can, I'll have the book on the table - if not, I'll be waiting with the book in hand :) My cell is[masked] so please text me if needed. I'll post to this page if anything comes up on my end.

    See you tomorrow ladies!

    There is no way I can get to Berkeley from SF that early. I loved the book though!

    Sundays, 10am, awaken cafe (right near 12th st Bart) would be my wish for next time.

    I'm confused by the email I rec'd: New date and time: Saturday, March 9,[masked]:00 AM

    Old date and time: Sunday, March 17,[masked]:00 AM


    I know it is impossible to accommodate everyone's schedule! If the book fairy gave me one wish, it would be to meet on Sunday, in Oakland, between 10-12. Heck, I would be very happy to host it here (I live with cats too) and could provide coffee, tea and mimosas!

      I would not be able to meet during the time Bobbie suggests.

    I'll have to leave early since I have something at 11:30, but can attend. If it's on Sunday then I can be there for the entire meetup.

    Darn, I don't think I can go! Maybe next time it could be on a Sunday morning? There is, also, Awaken Cafe near 12th St BART.

      Depending on people's availability, I am definitely open to moving the date. Let's see other people's RSVPs

      That's her! And she is a hoot, as usual :)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
