    2nd time, and I'm just enchanted. I love how we're just swapping ideas, as well as books! Last month I thought I should try to home in on my favorite genre, but I see the appreciation everyone has for every genre... So happy to have found you!

    Good meeting with interesting books and new people. However, one mber needs to seriously cut short their remarks. Adding too much personal imformation. Thank you to the organizers.

    Sorry -- just discovered Hound and the Falcon is too dusty (?). So I am bringing Wild Swans instead.

    Hello! This will be my first meeting! I plan on bringing The Hound and the Falcon by Judith Tarr (an excellent fantasy book) and Stranger to the Ground by Richard Bach. That book inspired my father to become a pilot. I am bringing 2 because I want to give readers a choice!
