A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway

From Wikipedia: "A Farewell to Arms is a novel written by Ernest Hemingway set during the Italian campaign of World War I. The book, published in 1929, is a first-person account of American Frederic Henry, serving as a Lieutenant ("Tenente") in the ambulance corps of the Italian Army. The title is taken from a poem by 16th-century English dramatist George Peele.

A Farewell to Arms focuses on a romance between Henry and a British nurse, Catherine Barkley, against the backdrop of World War I, cynical soldiers, fighting and the displacement of populations. The publication of this, Hemingway's bleakest novel, cemented his stature as a modern American writer, became his first best-seller, and is described by biographer Michael Reynolds as "the premier American war novel from that debacle [World War I]"

      I looked around and didnt recognize anyone, but it was my first meeting. i asked the clerk at the customer service booth, but she didnt know anything about any meetups/bookclubs. I got there early and waited for a while before leaving. I am glad you all were able to have a goos meeting.

      I know that many people are typically a few minutes late, so there may have only been one or two folks there before you left. But I really hope that you will join us in March.

    Megan, Something has come up unexpectedly, and I cannot attend tomorrow night. You are welcome to use my reserved space. I will miss you all, and the lively discussion I know will be taking place. See you next time.

    Dang it. I thought I reserved a spot as soon as the e-mail came out, but it's saying I didn't. Is there any way to make the group larger?

      Sorry. I guess I'm just getting frustrated because people admit to not reading the books or take a spot and then post that they didn't show up.

      Your frustration is understandable. We do often get a few no-shows. Ultimately if there are more than 10 people who show up I am not going to turn anyone away. So if you really want to come you are certainly welcome.

    What is the book for Feb? I can't seem to find a list of the upcoming books on the web site, but then computers hate me so I am not surprised.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
