Books and Booze Folsom Pages

Hello, and welcome to Books and Booze Folsom! We are about reading books, having good discussions, and drinking. The rules, benefits, and explanations of the group are as follows:

1. RSVPs

a. Limit (10 People)

i. This is to facilitate a more intimate discussion. Sometimes the settings will be higher or lower based on the book choice, venue, or individual meetup host.

b. When can you RSVP?

i. You can RSVP 30 days before a Monthly Meetup.

ii. You can change your RSVP until two days before the Monthly Meetup (this helps me with attendance). For those who are last minute cancellations please send an email.

c. (Attendance) Three Strike Rule:

i. Three no-shows and you’re out. I mean business on this one. I really hate to take attendance but there are too many people waiting for your spot for you not to show up. If you MUST be a no-show please let me know why, I understand life happens (kids get sick, cars break down, doctors are on call, etc.) and I would hate to put a mark next to your name if you have a valid reason for not showing up.

2. You can plan and schedule your own meetup.

a. This is to facilitate this group working for everyone. If you don’t like the book selection, venue, date, time, author, subject matter or theme you are free to suggest a meetup under the “Schedule a New Meetup” link under the big “Welcome!” at the top of the page. Please be aware your meetup is not limited until I limit it or set you up as host so you can limit and edit the meetup to your specifications.

b. (Attendance) I will not take attendance for any meetup other than my own Monthly Meetup. Attendance for alternate meetups will be for other hosts to decide on and inform me of.

3. This site is not for publicity farming for books.

a. If a meetup is scheduled for that purpose I will delete it. My members are not bodies for publicity stunts, book release parties, book signings, etc.

4. Respect is mandatory.

a. I do not allow disrespect, argumentative individuals, aggressive behavior, or intellectual snobbery in my meetups and I hope all who host a meetup through this website do the same. I understand everybody has different political and religious views, opinions on how best to raise kids, shop for deals, and handle stress. Please be aware your opinion is not the only one seated at the table and show respect to those who have a different opinion than you, whether they voice it or not. Books can be contentious and we do discuss quite a few sensitive and in-depth subjects. Please be aware of what you are saying, how you sound, and who you’re looking at when you say certain things.

5. Money

a. The only person who should charge money at any meetup is me (Melissa). I pay the bi-annual fee for this site ($72 every 6 months) and allow you to use it for mostly free. I generally charge $1-$3 for a few meetups and then call it good. I will accept food or alcohol donations if you so desire to send them my way at the table.

6. Questions

a. If you have questions or comments please send them to me in an email at

Happy Reading!

Melissa (Group Organizer)
