Meet to discuss current book and choose next one.

Hello!

This is Janie K. updating the site as of 9/9/13.  The group is growing strong but our interest in meeting at the Pour House is weakening because of the erratic closing hours. 

As discussed at our last meeting, two options were mentioned, the library and the courthouse.  The library is totally booked and Jane W.  is still investigating using the Courthouse.  Please post your ideas on where to meet for the next meeting.

    Last night was great! I do wish more of us could have attended, but we got A LOT accomplished. What I put here is space limited, so click on over to the Discussion Area (scroll up. find it under the large orange header/bar. 2nd from the right between 'Pages' and 'More') to read more.

      Oh Jane, so sorry that wasn't clear. Yes, there were some left at mcpl. I just checked and I believe all copies may be checked out now. The Ellettsville branch looks to have one copy. Can you meet up today or tomorrow?

    I just found out about this group, so can't come to the meeting tomorrow, but I am very interested in attending the next one! Could you let me know what book you decide on so I can join the next conversation? Thank you, and looking forward to meeting you all!

      Welcome. We'll be posting updated information after our next meeting (Besides discussing Wonder, we plan to revise our book list and location). We look forward to officially meeting you next time.

    Welcome Amanda,

    I'll let you know about the next book. Should know shortly after our meeting.

    Should/can we explore shifting the meeting to a different night, this time, so we can use the library (if there's a room there on another night)?

      Remember what Keith posted. There is free parking a block away....that should help for this month. We will definitely put parking considerations on the list.....my BIG REQUEST in all this is DECAFFEINATED BEVERAGES.....and maybe some wine....and chocolate....WAIT, wrong group meeting. :-)

      1 · September 17, 2013

    • Keith

      I posted a discussion topic on a potential meeting place directly across the street from that parking structure. The Runcible Spoon. Since we are throwing out ideas for discussion at the meeting we can consider that also.

    OK Laura don't get mad--I can't wait till Thurs to bring it up--what about Rachael's Café for book club? At 3rd and Lincoln. Couches, plants all over :) LOVE the place.....

    1 · September 15, 2013

    • laura b.

      Carrie, of course I'm not mad. Jane and Keith had already look into and confirmed Pourhouse again this month due to extended hours. So, to not risk confusion, I think it's best to stay put this week. Of course, we can see how others weigh in before Thursday.

      You both make good points. Let's make sure to talk about it on Thursday.

    Hi Everyone!

    Keith investigated the Pour House hours for this coming week and confirmed they are open until 9 pm. So, let's "meet up" there again. For the newbies, we haven't needed to go downstairs to the conference room since last spring. We have been meeting in the back left corner of the main floor.

    Really looking forward to seeing all of you and discussing Wonder. It was a REALLY GOOD CHOICE, lots to discuss.

    Janie K.

    I teach all semester on Thursday nights so another night would not bother me!

    I finished the book Wonder and will return to library tomorrow. In case you still need a copy. Actually, I'm not sure how the book sharing works in the group, as this is my first time.

    • laura b.

      We're in transition re: what books we choose and what source we use. Our next mtg involves narrowing our POA.

    I realized that I will no longer be able to attend this book club until next semester! I am teaching a Thursday night course 6-9 so I have NO Thursdays free this semester! I am bummed but I have no choice.

      So sorry to hear that Iris. I love seeing you there. I understand changing schedules. We'll see you in WWC.

    I finished Wonder yesterday and it was great! Then I looked at my calendar and realized I'll be at a conference in New Orleans on Thur the 19th, so unfortunately I won't be able to make it to the discussion. Have fun!

      I'm so jealous that you're going to my hometown. I do hope you take advantage of the fresh seafood (if you enjoy seafood) and other culinary delights. Have fun. We'll keep the page updated so you don't miss any developments.

    To the person I talked to after book club last month--I am terrible with names--young,blonde-- Alex the Native American author we both liked--his website is back up. I can't remember his last name at the moment. GETTING OLD is not bad but the lack of memory stinketh!!! :)

  • Babak

    What book are we reading?

    August 23, 2013

    • Babak

      Thanks Keith. I'll start reading Wonder in a couple days. With the semester starting tomorrow I'll be rather busy. Hopefully I can get through to a decent point, or even finish it, before the meeting.
