    Also discussed: did we have a preference for movie coverage or [the] original book? Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird mentioned as being good in both versions.

      I've read all of those books, too. You're right. They were all better than the movies.

      I have read the Shawshank Redemption (probably 15 years ago or so) and I remembered liking it! I also liked the movie and I thought they were equally good.

    There were about 30 people with 6 new people, we discussed books that we loved, I talked about children's book writing briefly. 4 good critiques, and went to the Marathon afterwards. Had a run in with the Liberty management about using our space, but Doug is taking care of that.

    If anyone has experience with Duotrope, please let me know at the meeting on Saturday. I'm only interested in paying venues for fiction and personal essays, and Duotrope seems to be the best resource for finding leads. I already know that it costs 50.00 a year. But is it possible to make a few hundred bucks, while using the site?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
