    Here's the answer to how to pronounce the x in Spanish. It at least explains my confusion (Mexico being the h sound) http://spanish.about.com/od/spanishpronunciation/a/pronounce_x.htm

    I think the address for this location has changed. It's different on google maps. And apple maps couldn't navigate to it, but that may just be apple maps:)

      If it helps, it's by the Target and Petsmart. Same parking lot.

      I've attended several times when I haven't read the book. I still like hearing other people's opinions, and it tells me if I want to read the book.\

      It's a good book, though. Give it a shot!

    I might skip this book...all reviews I looked at say it is a copy of iRobot.

      I just finished this book and am really excited for the Monday meeting. There are several aspects and ideas that I noticed and am really looking forward to hearing everyone else's take on it! It's not a bad book to check out and your input would have been fun to hear at the meeting. :)

      Me too. I didn't think I would like it but towards the middle of the book I couldn't put it down. Great story and an awesome ending!
