"B is for Beer" and "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" 2 books!

  • This location is shown only to members

This month we are reading two books! Yes two! The first is "B is for Beer" By Tom Robbins and the second is "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" by Mary Ann Shaffer. Don't worry if you can't finish both.

I have attached two links below if you need more info or need to buy the books.

B Is for Beer
AND

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society By Mary Ann Shaffer, Annie Barrows

I hope that you like the choices of books. Remember that we will be choosing October's book at this Meetup

Also there will be a new attendance/RSVP policy in an effort to be polite to the venues that we use.

If you "NO SHOW" (That means you don't change your RSVP status before the event) more than twice you will be kicked out of the group. You will have up to 9 am the day of the event to change your RSVP status to "NOT COMING". Those who wish to RSVP the same day as the event may still do so, however if you no show you will still be subject to the attendance rule. Exceptions can be made for those who contact me.

PLEASE REMEMBER TO RSVP CORRECTLY SO THAT WE CAN SAVE THE CORRECT NUMBER OF SEATS AND BE POLITE TO THE VENUES THAT WE USE.

Group Guidelines:

1) 21 and over plz - The books we may be reading (and the bars we plan and meeting to discuss the books in) mean that we need people to be at least 21 to participate.

2) "No homework" - We don't have set questions, it's open discussion. You won't get in trouble if you haven't read the book, but at least make an effort so you'll have something to talk about. Read the back cover at a bare minimum! ;-) If you haven't read it come anyway and hear about why you should, but be prepared for spoilers.

3) Be respectful. Be polite about any views or topics that may come up in the course of discussing a book, some of the books we might read are kind of strange or may riff on religion, politics, society, etc. Just take said books and our discussions with a sense of humor and a grain of salt and we'll all get along fine.

    So the place has been picked. It is on Queen Anne right across the street from our last meeting place. Just a heads up I am looking for other locations but I have been totally swamped this month. Sorry for the late location selection. I look forward to seeing you all there.

    If it comes to that, we can always setup a carpool, but I think you're safe, the only places discussed were just barely north of downtown.

    Will the location at least be for sure in Seattle? I'm a bus rider and I'm cool with pretty much anywhere in Seattle but outside the city limits and I get nervous! :)

    I thought there was some "Thumbs Up" to your idea of a Meetup on 1st, or further south anyway. Have you tossed out that idea? :)

    I will make sure to keep that in mind. Thanks for the reminder Tamara

    Oooo, I hate trying to have a conversation during lots of noise. One of the reasons I like Victrola is they have a community room. (I think you can reserve it based on their schedule.) It is nice and not-noisy in there. Victrola (Ask for the one on 15th)[masked]

    Hi, I am wondering if you have a location in mind... If not, may I suggest Victrola on 15th (Capitol Hill)? Alternately, my apartment is near Victrola. It is quiet, fully wheelchair accessible, has a big couch and table, and is walking distance of Safeway and QFC... We could drink lots o' beer! All are welcome... unless you're an axe-murderer. We have a strict NO-AXE-MURDERING policy!!
