Hey Guys Wow, you haven't gotten this much book club email in ages:-). And more may be coming. Dunt, dunt, duh....
I'd like everyone to welcome Camila and Jennie who both willingly offered their services to organize for Jamaica Plains and Brookline respectively. Wish them hello (the crowd goes wild with cheers and hellos)
We're all getting acclimated to the site so patience is paramount, but yay! It looks like we may be having a couple other bookclub options for the future for all those not in Cambridge. Although, I'm certainly not in Cambridge so don't let traveling scare ya away:-).
If any other folks are interested in being the point person for a group in their area (more distant suburbs of Boston are totally welcome too!), lemme know and we'll get them up and running as well.
This group was established during the summer of 2007 as a casual, social means of discussing the books that have been sitting on our nightstands, or on our "Must Read!" lists for months, as well as providing the incentive with which to actually read them. The group originally ran with two branches: Cambridge and Brookline, and our goal is to provide similar groupings in and around the Boston area. Organization has changed hands over the past two years, but the result has always been a source of good conversation, new acquaintances, and exposure to books and genres that provide both comfort and exploration. So, if you're into reading, talking, and often eating (yay, eating!), you are even remotely close to the Boston area, and are the ages of 20-30ish, this is the group for you.
