    I apologize for not making the group discussion. I'm trapped in the
    I-5 traffic going to and from work at McChord AFB. I couldn't handle getting back in the traffic this evening. I'm sure it was a great discussion.

    Have to bow out - am called in to work Tues eve. Have to say I love the book - what a range of emotions and the writing style is engaging.

    Well, this is my third email, and I still am not sure of how the books are chosen, if we the members have any input on the choosing of the books, or for that matter if there are or are not any themes or criteria for submitting, suggesting, and/or choosing books to be read. I'm with Marjorie, it would be great to know what books are on the list. Let's read some Naomi Wolf!!

    Hello-I was confirmed to attend but I don't think I'll finish the book in time. In fact I know I won't-so I'm going to give up my spot for someone that might have finished the book.
    Any chance we could get notification of the books for the upcoming month a little earlier? Is that posted somewhere and I'm missing it?

    September 17, 2013

    • Lu

      Not necessary to have finished the book. Come meet up with us anyway and share what you can.

      Usually the next book is posted when I post the next meeting.

    Hi folks, if you haven't been to a recent meeting please email me your email so I can add you to the list. I send one email either the night before or the day of the meeting, as we are usually meeting in private homes, I don't like to publish everyone's addresses or phone #'s. If you have any questions please email me or call at 360.970.4031. I will get back to you within 24 hours.

    Hi Donny, just like the list states it is a list of books that others have discussed and or shared with us at the meetings. This list is being shared because most of us read other books and would like to know what others are reading too.

  • donny

    Hello fellow book clubbers, I am wondering about the list of 32 books listed on the web site. Is this a list of future potential books, or a list of suggested books that can be added to, or a list that I need to vote or pick from?? Can someone help me out and share a little information?
