So with the lead of 8 votes in the poll, the next book selection will be Haruki Murakami's Norwegian Wood. A few of us have read other Murakami novels, and he is one phenomenally talented author- so you're all going to love him!
Feel free to get the book from your library, on Amazon, or maybe see if someone is a quick reader can lend you their copy with enough time to read before the meeting. This month we are meeting at Griffith park by that Trails cafe, so people can sit on benches, get coffee/snacks, and just hang out. Tons of parking available right there, and it should be perfect weather.
After this meeting, as we discussed at the first one, we are going to start assigning months to a 'host' that will select the books for the poll and location- this way we can read things we wouldn't have normally picked ourselves, and discover new places. Both of these things should lead to some fun discussions and discoveries :)
So yeah, details remain the same, get the book, and I'll see you all soon!
Okay, so awesome first meeting to all who came! As we discussed, the next meeting will be June 9th. I put up a poll with the four books we mentioned for our next meeting, so on Tuesday I'm going to close the poll and then whichever book is in the lead I will change the details on this to reflect the choice. Since we're doing it 3 weeks from now, the choices are all reasonably short so everyone has time, but typically events will be every 4 weeks or so.
So find the poll page (I think it's under 'more' tab), and make your choice! And then RSVP- since we're doing Griffith, there will be no limits to who come, so any and all friends or acquaintances of yours are welcome!
