Re: [bookclub-812] New Meetup: Kafka: The Metamorphosis

There are now 9 people on the waiting list.  (A few even were added
after I added myself just 24 hours ago!)
Since there are so many interested in this great novella, would anyone
have issue with us "waiting list" people having a meetup nearby at
Algiers Cafe (so as not to overwhelm Crema)?

I think there will be even more signing up in the next 10 days . . .
