This is a monthly book club devoted to the mystery novel.
Welcome to our book group!
We hope that if and when you join our community, we get to meet you soon after. We like to keep our group filled with active members so you are asked to attend your first meetup within 3 months of joining. If you are unable to join us in real life, you are welcome to follow and contribute through our website: https://seattlemysterylovers.wordpress.com/
If our group were to have a mission statement, it would probably be along the lines of, "Dedicated to legitimizing the mystery novel as a form of literature...while at the same time indulging in our passion!"
We tend to read two books per month to compare and contrast. However, you are welcome to attend if you have only read one of the two.
For a listing of this years' books, please look under the "More" section at the top of the page and click on "Files".
Attendance Expectations: This group relies on participation of an active membership. Please join our group if you plan on attending at least 6 out of 12 meetings a year.
Dues: I don't collect dues and don't make use of the contribution option throughmeet up. However, twice a year I do ask for donations from members. Meetup charges me twice a year, and charges are based on the size of our group. As long as donations cover the cost, then there won't need to be any more formal collection system! I let everyone know ahead of time the collection dates.
Don't forget to check out our message boards, where you will find previous books read, comments and discussion from members, and info about book swapping!
