    I'm really sorry I didn't make it. I just started a job that ends at 5:30, and I gave someone a ride home so was running pretty late.

    Aw, I don't think I'm going to make it. I'm still way far away on the bus:( This was one of my favorite Pesephone books so far, too. I'll have to catch you all next time at the brunch.

    I'm running way late, but I'm trying to get there by 6:30. Sorry!

      I'm straight back from the entrance this time. Somebody else got our usual spot.

    I enjoyed the book but unfortunately I can't make it tomorrow. I have rehearsal for the Bar Show, which runs the first week of December. If you're interested in the show, you can get more info here: http://barshow.org See you in December!

    I may not be able to make it for this book due to a conflicting date. I hope to see all of you in December. Carol B.

    Thanks for moving the group meeting day! My book is coming from the UK and won't be here til at least next week.

    Does that mean that all the other books get moved a month too? We'll discuss our November book in Dec, Dec book in Jan, etc.?

      It does indeed. Hopefully that works okay for everyone.

    Hey guys! I decided to move The Priory back a month to give people more time to read it. Hope to see you in November!

    I think an extension would be great, but it may be easier, as Carolyn suggested, to move it to the December meeting. I'm really excited to read the book but haven't yet with moving, homework and my cousin's wedding!

    Dear Jessica,
    I will not be able to attend the book group this week. I have tickets to Steppenwolf Theater. I could use an extension to December since I haven't gotten the book yet. Carol Brna

    I noticed not a lot of people have RSVPed. Do we need an extension on this book? I know I could use one!

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.
