Thank you for having the meetup. I have been hearing that most groups are declining in size. Partly because of finances, partly because it gets dark earlier and women may not go out after dark. Very few people understand it costs the group leaders money every month to post on meetup. Personal issues have interfered with my attendance. I will try to work things so that you will have one more person coming out(me). :)

Wow! 16 rsvp'd for last night and only 3 showed up? What happened?
This Meetup group is devoted to people who simply love books and enjoy discussing them.
If you are a writer/agent just looking to promote a book, please do not join.
We come together monthly on the third Thursday of the month at 6:30pm with other book lovers to discuss a pre-selected book but we include time for an open format when you can discuss any book you are currently reading and would like to tell the group about it. Any book is fair game, we just want to know what you like about it and why. Books that we have read are: http://www.meetup.com/columbia-meetup-book-...
As of January 2014 we are meeting in the Columbia Mall in Columbia, MD. We meet in the Nordstrom Marketplace Cafe which is a restaurant on the second floor inside the Nordstrom department store. We meet in the back of the restaurant. Feel free to grab something to eat or drink from the Cafe.
