Hello fellow book worms! It's great to hear that all of you who were able to attend the meeting for Eat, Pray, Love had such a good time.
Now it is time to plan our next meeting and discuss future meetings. First, we need a venue for the June 22nd meeting. Any suggestions? Secondly, we need to decide on a consistant time for everyone to meet. What about 2nd Sunday of the month at 3pm from now on unless there is a holiday or something that conflicts with that time? Let me know your thought soon so we can schedule upcoming meetings.
Lastly, book selection: Bethany has agreed to lead the discussion for Self-Made Man on June 22nd and Mary will be guiding us through Bellwether in July. I will champion Water for Elephants in August. At the next meeting we will take more book suggestions and begin lining them up for the rest of the year. Can wait to hear book ideas from some of you newer members.
Thanks for participating. Let me know your thought and ideas through email or you are always welcome to call me: hm[masked] cell[masked]
"Cover to Cover" is an Omaha Metropolitan area reading group established in 2008. Our group hosts (2) forums for book discussions.
Forum (1) "Cover to Cover" is designed for discussions of a single work selected by attendees from the previous book discussion. The selection is usually a popular culture work or a classic; the group historically meets for 1 hour on the last Sunday of each month and alternates between fiction and non-fiction. Forum (2) "Syntopical" is designed for discussions of multiple works in the nature of Mortimer Adler's Level 4 syntopical reading. The selections are centralized and influenced by a cohort. Attendees are encouraged to draw on a personal history of reading experiences and knowledge to form comparisons and contrasts to the works selected for analysis. The group meets for 1 1/2 hours every two months.
Each meet-up is enjoyable and provides a rare opportunity to share insights, and we always look forward to meeting new readers.
