Reminder about this Saturday's Meetup on Kindle

From: Robin S.
Sent on: Wednesday, September 9, 2009 8:54 PM
Just a reminder - we will not be at our Usual location - i.e WE ARE NOT AT THE ARLINGTON LIBRARY. Instead we will be at the Barnes and Noble of Clarendon (just a few metro stops down from Balston stop where we normally are. Also we will be ther in the AM not the afternoon.

We won't have tables - and you will want to take notes so please bring something hard so you can write in your laps.

The change in venue is because the Arlington library "caps" the number of times a group can use their meeting room. The Library in Silver Spring charges for meeting room space and the Mayorga Coffee shop is "cracking" down on using their space without paying a fee so we have few choices in the "freebie category". I'd be more than happy to host a meetup at my house - but it is in Vienna and that is even farther than Balston or Clarendon for the DC/Maryland crowd. I've used the MLK library before and might have to resort to using it again but it is also not an ideal spot - although more centrally located.

Since the B&N is providing us space for free - please try to support them through a small purchase of somekind. For instance if there is a book that you planned on picking up from "somewhere" please consider buying it on Saturday as a way of thanking them for letting us take up space in their store. Or you can buy a cookie or coffee from the cafe etc. This of course is completely voluntary but I would like them to get a bit of business out of this.

There is a parking garage near the B&N - but it is not free. I think the B&N validates parking and that provides a discount but I don't think you get it 100% reimbursed.

As always if you know of other places to meet please let me know.

And one last thing....If anyone has a Kindle - please bring it to the meeting so I can at least show people what it looks like.

Thanks and see you all there.
