    I'm very sorry ladies but I have work that has come up at the last minute that I just can't avoid. I see there are a few others that had to cancel last minute. Can I propose a second meet up next Tuesday at 6.30 for those of us that can't make it tonight? I too have read the book and am keen to chat about it. I can be in Calgary mon-wed eve. If others are keen I can find a coffee shop or see if we can do it at the same one. Hope to chat about this book next week!!

      I am also stuck at work :( I would absolutely be in for next Tuesday though!

      November 21, 2013

    • Jessica

      I'd be up for for meeting next week as well. If we choose to have it at another coffee shop and there isn't a huge group, Analog Coffee on 17th Ave might be a nice place to hold the meetup.

    Anybody know the bus system better than me to know which bus from downtown will take me there?

    November 21, 2013

    • Alyssa

      Google tells me the #1 or #305 bus will take you there. I am taking transit as well!

    My apologies, youngest child has come down with the stomach flu and sent home from school so I won't be able to attend. Can really recommend the book though it was a great read and managed to finish it in 2 to 3 nights.

    November 21, 2013

  • Rina C.

    Is it okay to come even if I didn't read the book?

    November 21, 2013

  • Jessica

    I would have loved loved to attend to this event but unfortunately I had to change my rsvp because I have a cold. Read the book specifically for this event too. I enjoyed it, it was a good recommendation. Do you think there might be a possibility of doing this event a second time for this book for those that were unable to come on the scheduled day (or even for people that enjoyed the book so much they would want to discuss it again) if there is enough interest?

    November 21, 2013

    • Jennifer

      I have had to cancel at the last minute also and would still love to meet up and talk about this book. If you're interested message me back.

      November 21, 2013

  • Jennifer

    I'm sorry but I'm just not able to make it. :(

    I just joined - if I don't have a chance to read the entire book, can I still attend?

      I haven't read it and I'm going!

      November 20, 2013

    • Heather H

      Love to have you even if you haven't finished the book!

      November 20, 2013

  • Carmen C

    I would love to read Divergent or Brave New World or Dune

    • Yvonne H.

      I read divergent. Loved it! And brave new world-

    I have not read your book but I'd like to join a book club - it's on my bucket list. I'll read Decembers choice. Really looking for a girls night out!

    November 20, 2013

  • Jennifer

    Hey everyone. Very excited to talk about this book tomorrow. I know transit gets to this place but I was hoping I could hitch a ride with someone. :) I'll chip in gas money. If anyone could do this that would be great. I'm right in the Beltline.

    Brave new world is a great book. 50 shades of grey was so dull it was like crawling through 50 miles of prarie...in a blizzard.

    I've heard good things about 50 Shades of Grey. I'd like to throw in Gone Girl-Gillian Flynn into the suggestion ring as well. :)

    October 23, 2013

    • Jenn

      Great suggestion! I will post the poll early next week
