    Fabulous. Panera was fine. Already looking at some of the titles. Thought the people were interesting and welcoming.

    The address you gave us corresponds to the Corner Bakery, not Panera

    I might come, but it depends on if my dog feels like coming in any time soon. He really, really enjoys being outside.

    Happy Hump Day! A reminder about our meet up on Sunday, from 2-4pm. Please note that we are meeting at Panera, but Panera in Germantown (19820 Century Blvd.). The manager assured us that we would have plenty of room and quiet. Really looking forward to hearing about your biographies, as well as your holiday plans! We'll have a short list of genres for our January meeting and will be taking a vote on Sunday to see what we dive into next! See you on Sunday and bring a friend!

    Is this location still a Panera? I thought it was changed to the Corner Bakery.

      Leeann, it is still Panera, but the Panera in Germantown, right off 270. Please see the meet up event notice for address.

    Kunni and I have chosen Panera Bread in Germantown as our next location. I met with the manager and he said that Sunday afternoons are pretty quiet there and while he can't reserve an area for us, it is a large Panera and has some good, large group areas. The plus for this location is that it is very easy to get to right off 270. Looking forward to seeing everyone and hearing about your biography! If you have any friends who would like to join, bring them along!

    I just bought a biography of Frances Perkins, the first female cabinet member (and who Baby, in Dirty Dancing, is named after).

      This cold weather is good for snuggling up and reading so I am going to read The Professor and the Madman and if I get done with that early enough I also have Unbroken.

    I'm looking forward to this! I just bought: 'Lady Caroline Lamb: A Biography' by Paul Douglass

      My daughter had a lamb that she named Caroline for Lady Caroline Lamb!

      While I peripherally know Caro Lamb from her association with Byron, I actually know nothing about her as a person. I'm looking forward to this - even if I did <gasp> have to buy it in paper format.

    There is a suggestion - a good one- that we choose from several genre choices and possibly choose several months out. I have no desire to dictate choices! So, For January, please think about a genre you would like to read and post your choice, we will go with what seems most popular. And I would like to be at least a month ahead, that way, if you want a book from the library and there is a list, you have a hope of getting the book in time.

    Multiple things:

    1. I am posting a list of genres, please modify as you see fit.
    2. Would you please write a short review of the thriller, including author's name so that the folks who couldn't make it will still benefit. And please say if you liked it/would read another book by the same author.
    3. Should we each write a short biography, not just the basics, but where we come from as readers so that we can get to know each other a little better before the next meeting?
    4. Please do tell us what you plan to read and if you have read any biographies that you would recommend, please list them for those that haven't hit on one yet.

    In the Wash Post this morning a review of a mystery/thriller that looked good, Salvation of a Saint by Keigo Higashino. Having just finished the Girl Who series and enjoying the background of Sweden, I think that I will check out this Japanese locale book
