Books & Breakfast

Come prepared to talk about your favorite Sci-Fi and Fantasy books! There will be no set reading requirements. Instead, let's share reading suggestions and talk about making this a recurring event. If anyone is interested in hosting this or future book discussions, or if you have ideas about good locations, please let me know. 

Discussion topics:

- Who are your favorite authors?
- What upcoming book releases are you most excited about?
- What classic book have you read so many times that the pages are falling apart?
- Do you have/need advice about which e-reader to buy?

Meetup: We will start around 9:00 AM. Feel free to come early and order breakfast or grab a cup of coffee. I will reserve some free tables based on the size of the group.

    Gar. I'd have loved to have made it. But my son and I can't seem to get it together this morning and the clock keeps ticking away. On the bright side we've constructed a heck of a good fort out of bedsheets and pillows. Which is a bit more fun for seven year olds I guess.

      Sounds like the perfect alternative on a dark and rainy day. For adults and children alike! :)

      Forts are totally awesome.

    I'm in some serious need of some new post-apocalyptic fiction. Zombies, volcanoes, flu outbreaks, water shortages... I'll take any and all recs.

    Hey guys, we're in the back corner past the fireplace.

    January 11, 2014

  • Libby B.

    Sorry guys, I'm going to avoid driving in this heavy rain this morning.

  • Wes D.

    Does anybody want to borrow books? I'm going to avoid a repeat of last time where everybody showed up with an entire backpack.

  • Libby B.

    I may not make it in thw morming after all, It depends on what the weather looks like in the morning.

    I thought it was at the panera in the boro

    January 6, 2014

    • Libby B.

      No its in Harrisonburg although I'm not sure who all lives in Harrisonburg. It seems like a majority of the people going, live in the Waynesboro and Staunton area. Then again, I could be mistaken on that. I do believe you're thinking of Joel's comment about eventually holding an event at the Panera Bread in Waynesboro. This is not that event though.

      January 6, 2014

    • Andrea N.

      Yes, Libby is correct. Joel held a separate book event in Waynesboro a few months ago, but this one will be in Harrisonburg.

    I'm going to be out of town this day! So sorry to miss it. The last book discussion meetup was fun--and that's when I found out about Cryptonomicon. Such an amazingly good read! (I'm still in the middle of its thousand pages!) Have fun, guys :)

    1 · January 2, 2014

    • Wes D.

      ahh Cryptonomicon : ) Maybe I should get out The Diamond Age and reread it.

  • Wes D.

    This still going down? I notice it hasn't been "Announced"...

    December 28, 2013

    • Andrea N.

      Yes, assuming no alien invasions happen between now and then.

      2 · December 30, 2013

    • Dan F.

      An assumption that is all to often overlooked.

    Panera Bread is finally in Waynesboro, August 21st! I am making a similar Meetup, except for Waynesboro, early September. Hopefully this Harrisonburg Meetup gets a future date. :)

    August 19, 2013

  • Colleen

    I can't really commit until we have a date but I'm interested in this and I can only do a weekend day and also I'd be excited for a Waynesboro edition as well.

    August 1, 2013

  • JoelWB

    I am interested in this once we have a date. Once the Waynesboro Panera Bread is finished, I may schedule one of these here in Waynesboro

    • Andrea N.

      That would be fantastic!

      July 28, 2013

  • Elizabeth S.

    I'd love to host or help with this.

    1 · April 28, 2013

    • Andrea N.

      Yes!!! That would be great. Consider yourself hired :)
