    We only had 3 people attend the Swamplandia! discussion today (maybe the beautiful weather is to blame?), so we did not vote on book nominations. Sarah, could we perhaps create an online survey for voting?

    Hey guys,
    A friend of mine is graduating from college on this weekend, so I won't make it. I may schedule an alternate day discussion, if I manage to figure out my schedule more than a week in advance (if I figure out the scheduling thing, I'll also schedule the short novel discussion I mentioned last meetup!).

      Unfortunately, Memorial Day weekend is one of the few weekends I'm in town between now and the end of June. Sorry :-(

    Read the book and was looking forward to the discussion, but just realized I'm out of town that weekend. Doh! Oh well, now someone on the waiting list can come.

    Yes, since the first group filled and had a long wait list, I decided to offer another opportunity for those who didn't make it into the original group. If you are on the original discussion's wait list, please take yourself off. I look forward to meeting you!
