September's Meetup

UPDATE:  The poll winner is A Walk Across the Sun by Addison

As the world grows smaller through communication, I thought it would be enlightening to read a novel that puts us into the perspective of a non-American. These 3 books are all different but will certainly fulfill that objective. 

To select one of the 3 books, go to the poll page under the "MORE" tab and vote for your choice. The choices are:

An Untamed State

by Gay

The Book of Unkown Americans

by Henriquez

A Walk Across the Sun

by Addison

Hope to see you soon!

    Sorry. Just noticed this is a Tuesday night and not our usual Wednesday. Can't make it. Have fun!

    I can't make it tomorrow night - the book [so far] is a really good one, but the real reason I can't make it is because my beloved Kansas City Royals are playing their first post-season game in 29 years! We're squealing over here! We're having a watch party with a few others, crossing our fingers they get out of the Wild Card. Enjoy the discussion - I'll see y'all next month!

    I am new to the group and find this not the best way to handle a situation. With the other meetup groups I am in if you do not pay your yearly fee , you are removed from the group. For someone to just close the group without any warning or explanation is very sad and unfortunate.

      Rebecca, I understand how if you are new to this group this would seem odd. However, I have been leading this group for 6 years, going on 7! The charge to run the group for one year is nearly $80, and I have had a lot going on and it merely slipped my mind. Don't worry this group is run very democratically, all books are selected by a poll so, all books are chosen by the group, not by me. I simply, handle the administration, pay the fee, and lead the discussions to get them going and help us stay on track. Hope that makes sense, and hope to see you soon!

    I never knew there were charges. But I assume we've all gotten Melissa's emails and are re-assured that we're still on track. Thank you Melissa!

    That said, I'm not going to make it to this next meeting and it's not because of the dollar! ;-) I just haven't been able to get into this author's writing so I'll pass my seat along to whoever is next on the waiting list.

    Can we not choose a new leader at the meeting next Tuesday...and if we need to chip in for rent we can also do that then

    Meetup charges for hosting the site. I am assuming that the yearly fee is due. We should put a few bucks toward it each meeting. I am guilty also because I forget about their charges. Sure we will hear from Melissa

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.
