Bookclub Kickoff for 2014

Ladies -- Lets schedule our first meetup of 2014!  I think for our first meeting of this year we should put together a list of potential books to read, confirm the best time and location for our meeting, and just reconnect after the holiday.  I hope that works for everyone!

    I'm going to have to miss today. Still snowing by me. Don't know how much will accumulate and don't want to risk having trouble getting there or back. Pick a good book for next month!

    • Peggy

      Well I'm not going by myself! Sounds like we should officially cancel today and try again in February.

    Sorry guys! I don't think I'm going to be able to make it today. The snow and snow-covered roads out by me have really put a damper on me getting things done today.

    Don't think I'm going to make it. I slept in, got some errands to run (no Staples in Rockaway, wth!) and it looks like I'm going to have to shovel these "snow showers" blah. You know me, I have no book suggestions, I just come for the conversation and cookies. :)

    I won't be able to make it today. Aaron is sick and I need to take him to the doctor at 1:00. I hope to catch-up with everyone soon!

    Unfortunately I won't be able to make it either...still having some issues from being sick. Hope to see you all soon!

    Can't believe I have to cancel. Taking someone to the Emergency Room. I really was excited and had my sook selection suggestions all typed up!!!!

    Looking forward to seeing everyone. Feels like forever since I've been to a meetup.

    My first meet up with this group and I'm really looking forward to it!!! Can someone tell me where Panera's is at the mall?? I only go to Ulta & Target, around the perimeter of the mall.

      We are not reading Gone Girl. We aren't reading anything for this meeting, actually. We're just bringing some of our to-read book ideas, and then picking which ones we want to read this year! See you soon!

      January 14, 2014

    • Lynn

      Sorry! Didn't mean to cause confusion.

      January 14, 2014

  • Linda M.

    What are we reading?

    • Laurie

      We aren't reading anything for this meeting - just picking some books to read for future meetings.

      Got it. Thank you.

    Some inspiration! Not that I will actually have time to read any books, haha.

      It would be fun to read a book, then see the movie as a group. Gone Girl is on the list and we already read that, would like to see that movie.

      January 14, 2014

    • Laurie

      I agree that a field trip to see that movie should happen!!

    Thanks all! Please be sure to bring your ideas. Maybe we can pick some books for the first half of the year or so and have a set schedule. I think that might be easier for folks getting the book from the library. Bring your ideas and your holiday stories. Spoiler alert -- I gained over 5 lbs! Oy!

    So sorry. I will be in Ct next weekend but please let me know what you decide.

    January 10, 2014

  • Karen

    I've been seeing lots of (what appear to be) good books for us to read. I should have written them all down in one place to have ready but I didn't. I'll try to gather the titles for the 18th.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
