    Hi ladies! This was going to be my first meetup and unfortunately there has been a loss in my boyfriend's family so as you can imagine I haven't been able to sit down and read. I would like to escape and not miss the chance to meet everyone, but since it is a book club I feel like I should probably have the book all read. I look forward to the next meeting!

    January 28, 2013

    • Jen

      Sandy- so sorry to hear about this!! Hope all is well and look forward to meeting you in Feb!

  • Michelle

    Hello everyone, I just joined this book club and I am very excited and a little nervous! Cant wait to meet everyone. I work until 6 and may be a little late as I work in Mississaga. Is it okay if I am late for the first meeting or should I try for February as I am changing jobs and working in Toronto? Please let me know and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    January 19, 2013

    • Jen

      Hi Michelle, Not to worry about arriving late if you do. We typically start around 7:15 to give everyone lots of time to arrive, and wrap up around 8 / 8:15 the formal portion of the evening (discussion etc) but people do tend to hang out for a bit afterwards as well. If that timing works, please join us! If not - we definitely look forward to welcoming you in February.

      Thanks Marlee for letting us know - if you can change your RSVP status (if not done so already) that would be great.

    Hey All - first time book clubber! Looking forward to meeting you all. So do I just show up at the Bedford? Do I need to bring anything?? See you all there!

      Hey Jessica, thanks for joining! You can. Come to the Bedford and ask for the girly book club and they will direct you to where we are - only thing you need to bring is yourself and $2 for our book raffle!

  • Tanya

    sorry I have to change my RSVP to no, I just realized that I have a ticket to an opera in the same day, and I can not reschedule it to another day because other days are sold out.. I really wanted to meet lots of wonderful new people, maybe next time..

    • Jen

      No problem- thanks for letting us know.

  • Nicole

    Hey everyone! First time attendee...how does it work with such a large group?

    December 31, 2012

    • Jen

      Hi Nicole - typically we do not get the amount of people that RSVP. Most if the time it's about half, we chat as a large group first and then split into smaller groups for discussion and get to know you. Come check us out!

    Hi! I've never done a meetup before and have also never been apart of a book club - I'm really excited for the opportunity, but curious to know how it works/looks? Thanks in advance, and looking forward to meeting with others that love to read!

    • Mandy

      You read the book, you come to the event, you talk about the book. :) There are quite a few of us so we will have an area to ourselves. If it's not clear how to find us - ask one of the staff & they will point you to us! It's a great time and everyone is really friendly - see you there!!!
