We are a group of nonfiction fans! We read strictly nonfiction, with no specific type identified (memoir, true crime, etc.). Those who attend discussion get to submit books for a vote on what we read.
The rules are simple:
1. RSVP to a discussion. If you cannot make the discussion, change your RSVP. After the first no-show, I will send you a "friendly reminder", but after three, I will remove you from the group.
2. There is a $5 fee to attend a discussion. This is to offset the monthly cost of hosting a group on the Meetup site. If you forget, it's no big deal, just pay later. However, if you are continuously forgetting, we may need to talk about you continued membership in the group.
3. Be respectful. Hey, we all have different views, but that's what makes us great! Be respectful of other group members. If you're being a jerk, I'll ask you (respectfully) to not come back.
4. Participate! Making new friends is awkward (trust me, I know!) but as with anything in life, you'll get out what you put in. So don't be shy to share your opinions. We keep the discussion mostly on track, but if you've got a story that relates, feel free to share it! Participation also means that you'll need to have read the book to participate. I'm not a control freak about it, but please do your best to read as much of the book as possible, so all can contribute to the discussion.
