Hello ladies! We're doing something a little different for May. Your choice of these two books: Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity by Katherine Boo or 100 Pieces of Me by Lucy Dillon. Simply read the one you want to read (or both if you feel so inclined) and we will discuss at the end of the month. See you then!!

-Sara and Rachael

    I don't think I will join this month meeting, I order the "100 pieces of me" but it hasn't arrived yet, so I don't think I will have time to read it before next week, I tried to read the "Behind the Beautiful Forevers" but it remind me of last month book, so I just couldn't get into it. Everyone have a great Memorial Weekend, and see you in June.

    I won't lie.. I didn't make time to read the book this month because my workload doubled after a team member quit, but I still want to come. I hope that's ok!

    I had to leave work early today due to a stomach bug. I am so disappointed because I was really looking forward to this. I have every intention of being at the next one.

    So I just saw this on Living Social. Thought I would share! It is two free months of Audible.

    I love the book "behind the beautiful forevers" ! It was a little sad and disturbing and had me wondering how much was based on facts. I would recommend it to others though.

    I am just joining the book club and will do my best to have one of the books completed by next week. Is it still ok to come if I don't get it completed?

      Sorry ladies! Sometimes books are suggested from the London chapter that aren't quite available here yet. That seems to be the issue here. It is available on Amazon through the Book Depository. If you don't want to order it, just read the other book!

    Amazon is showing that A Hundred Pieces of Me isn't available until September. Is that right?

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
