26th Book Club Meeting (FINALLY)

  • July 30, 2013 · 6:30 PM

WELCOME BACK FOLKS!!!! Sorry about the short hiatus but it was badly needed, and I really can't wait to catch up with all of you! See you soon.

We will discuss John Haidt's book the Righteous Mind: Why Good People are divided by politics and religion.... AND any other book that you have read in the mean time. 

We will meet at 6:30 pm at Sandy's house (directions will be sent to those who have RSVP'd). Please bring an appetizer, beverage, or fruit plate to share. We can't wait to see you.

If you have any questions please call me at 360.970.4031.

Have a great day, Regina

    Hello everyone, I have not picked up the next book yet, but it sounds like a good one and it would seem to dove tail abit with the last one( in terms of morals and the morals of a society that support the imprisonment of people on a large scale)

    If I may suggest a couple of other titles that relate to prison life right here in the US( the US has the largest prison population in the world, far surpassing China, and in the US, torture is an everyday experience, as well as being allowed and considered part of the punishment). "The New Jim Crow" by Michelle Alexander
    and
    "We Want Freedom" by Mumia Abu Jamal

    And to you Lu. I'm sure that time could be found to continue discussions if you or others want to do that, sounds like fun to me.

    Wish there had been more time for discussion of the many issues that surfaced. Lots of interesting insights.

    Sorry to have missed the group last night. Was helping my son move and lost track of time. I'm sure it was a great discussion as always. Hope to see you all next time. Regina, could you let me know what we are going to be reading for next time. Thanks much, Kelley :)

    I was hoping that there might be some comments but all I see is"Good to see you" messages. For the few people I already knew, good to see you, and for all my new acquaintances, hope to see you again.
    I found it very interesting, as an amateur social scientist, that my take on the book( religion= moral base of group and/or individual) and most everyone one else was focused on right/left, liberal/conservatism, and dem/rep. A little challenge?? How about for those who believe truth and justice, or at least a just society, get together and talk some more about this fascinating subject. You know, how to be a good citizen, or what is a good citizen?

    This is the test huh? How far does White liberalism really go to support justice in an unjust society. Peace Brothers and Sisters (GOOD TO SEE YOU)

      Hi susan, just a quick double check to make sure I have your email address so I will be able to send out directions on Sunday/Monday.

    Regina, is this a book from the Timberland Library book group--i.e., do you have multiple copies to lend out to people coming to Book Club?

    July 12, 2013

    • Mary Ellen H.

      I got the book, Regina--did you receive my email message with request for directions? I was at your house one dark and rainy night but need a refresher!

      July 16, 2013

    • Regina

      Hi Marey Ellen yes, got everyones request for directions, however I don't send directions out till the Sunday/Monday before book club. You are on the list and Ido have your email.

      July 27, 2013

  • Regina

    Hi folks, you haven't received directions yet because I haven't sent them. I have been on vacation hiking and have not been abvailable. I am sending out direcgtions Sunday or Monday night. And yes Donny, I did get your message today, when I got back to town.

    July 27, 2013

  • donny

    Hey Regina, I have not received direction and I have sent you my email address twice. Have you received it? I'm curious, can you not just click on my picture and send me the info? That is how I sent it to you. I also called you and left a message and my phone number. Did you receive that?

    Just a reminder folks, if you haven't attended the book club before you may want to send me your email address as that is how I send directions. I only access this site from work and don't always get a chance to do so, so please email me your email address so you can get directions to our meetup. Thank you, Regina

    Yay! Not sure if my original RSVP made it through, since I interrupted the process to determine whether I could host the meeting -- and now I see that Sandy will be hosting. Great! I'll be there, and am looking forward to seeing everyone again.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
