    My plans changed again so I will be with you. But I never got the book from the library so I'll just listen if that's ok. See you Saturday.

    Just discovered that I am going to be out of town that day so I'll have to miss the club. Sorry to do so, but at least someone else can take my place.

    Does anyone have a copy of the book that's available for borrowing?

      Do you still want to borrow the book since you aren't attending? If yes, I will bring it Tuesday to our Brambleton book club meeting.

      That's okay. Since I'm in no rush now, I can wait til my turn comes up at the library. Thanks, though.

    I just put a hold on the E book from Reston Library. So if you have an e reader it's easy to do a free. Love it.

      Loudoun County doesn't have the ebook. :-( Otherwise I'd be all over that.
