Talk about Earth-conscious books

 

I thought I'd try a Saturday afternoon in Riverside for those who might like to follow the Riverside Arts Market with a meeting, and just to go for a different time and place.

    It's not on the list, but I have been wanting to read "Moby-Duck" for awhile. Would you consider adding it to the list? It seems in line with the theme. Thanks for the consideration.

      Cathy, if you want to commit to reading Moby-Duck for the meeting, I'd be glad to add it, it looks like a great selection.

    I really like Walden but for something new I think Skinny Dip or The Story of Stuff sounds good.

    Attending a birding workshop that day. Sherlock Holmes is free. Would you consider that theme? Maybe June or July?

      Also, Susan, please let me know what days in mid-June would be a problem for you, would hate to set a meeting that was a scheduling problem for the person who suggested the theme!

      Since you asked..... :-) ..... The best time for me is happy hour during the work week. Start at 5:30.

    Tres Leches and The Worst Hard Times sound appealing. Please put me down for both!
