Welcome all the new members that joined over the past 10 - 14 days. I think we're up to 107 live bodies! Wow! I hope to meet and greet with all the new faces at an upcoming Meet Up.
On to business -
1) Thank you to all the attendees that came out to the Winking Lizard last night. We surely had an 'interesting' visit....wacko drinks, money in a water glass, crying babies at a sports bar, etc.
2) Another big thank you to anyone that has graciously donated $2 to the Divas de la Creme Meet Up Fund. As many of you know, a meetup.com group costs an organizer $144 per year. If you love the book club and can afford to help out by contributing $2 a year to offset those costs, it is much appreciated. This is not an obligation to continue as an active member!
3) From a blind selection of books voted by last night's attending members, we'll be reading 'The Hunger Games' by Suzanne Collins this month! Now....I know many of you have already read this one, however, many of us have not. And it's crazy popular, so the library holds are deep. If you have a copy to share, print or electronic versions, please email me or post a note on the discussion board. I'll do my best to coordinate a 'book share' program.
If you are interested in buying the book, I found it for $7.49 on Amazon for Kindle, and for as low as $6.35 on their main site. I would also check Half Price Books, Craigslist, and eBay for used copies of the first book we are reading or the entire Trilogy.
Finally, keep your eyes peeled for new Polls, which I'll post next week. I'm hoping we can all get a copy of this book to read and then discuss sometime in mid-March.
Have a great weekend and happy reading!
