April book poll / March meeting venue / book suggestions

From: RK
Sent on: Monday, March 5, 2012 12:00 PM

The book poll is up for April’s book. Please vote if you are coming to the discussion. The poll will be closed at the end of Wednesday.

 At the last meeting we had a discussion about the March meeting venue. We decided to take up an offer from CSC to use the party room of his condominium near St. George station (parking available), which can accommodate the whole group and which is free but has a security procedure that we must follow. We can bring our own food and drink. If we bring alcohol, we must hire a security guard @$25/hr which I don’t object to in future, but it’s simpler to do the dry version the first time using this venue. Venue details will be posted before the meeting.


This is especially addressed to new members: please add a book suggestion to the discussion board. Many of us are members of a book club in order to broaden our outlooks and read and discuss books that we wouldn’t otherwise read. Each of also has a special vantage point due to our unique experiences and interests and can contribute to the club by suggesting a book. To suggest a book, please:

  1. check that it is available in the Toronto Public Library (and include either a link, or number of holds vs. books in the post).
  2. If the book is available, post a message on the discussion board.
  3. Include your personal rationale for suggesting the book. (There’s a post in the discussion list with a set of questions to answer). 
  4. Include links or excerpts from book reviews.

You must be a member of the club, but you don't need to have attended a meeting to suggest a book.

 Remember that posting a book suggestion is an act of persuasion. Make it easier for others (who may not be as motivated as you to search out information on a particular book) to select or vote for your book by providing the information for them. Besides, it's courteous.

 I'd like to have a brief discussion about our book selection process at the end of the next meeting.

Thanks everyone,
