Hi, Novel Lovers. I’m looking forward to our discussion of Middlesex on August 28, 2 pm, at Ellen’s house. What a fascinating book -- we’ll have plenty to discuss!
Our September book is Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan. Is Sept. 25 fine for those of you who want to attend? I could also do Sept. 18, if that’s better. Let me know right away if you want to come and one date will work but the other won’t. I’ll go with the best date for most. If you’re in love with this book and can only do one date, it’s okay to write “please, please, please!” in your email or offer me chocolate.
Speaking of “please, please, please!” we need to keep our RSVPs up to date. If you’ve said yes and you discover you can’t come after all, please change your RSVP to “I’m not going.” Last time we had the most sign-ups ever, yet the fewest people showed up! That’s crazy making for me as the organizer and for Ellen as the host.
FYI, usually people bring lots of lovely snacks, yet last time, we had an empty table. (Just saying that will make sure we have too much next time, right?)
Back to books – please feel free to add book recommendations to the message board under the “discussions” tab: http://www.meetup.com/Novel-Lovers-of-Sebastopol/messages/boards/. If you’re reading additional books that you’d love to discuss, you can organize a small group to discuss a book other than our monthly choice, meeting at a coffee shop or a home. Anyone can start a message board topic, no need to wait for me to put up a topic that interests you.
I love our group and the quality of our discussions, and I thank you for being a part of this! See you August 28.
