September Book Discussion

We will be discussing Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs.

We are meeting at Beauregard's Thai Room, for those of you that do not get downtown that often it is easy to find and park. Heading east on Cary you will see the parking lot on the right first. The restaurant is also on the right you have to cross one street to get to it. Just ask for the Book Club when you get there, usually we are seated upstairs but this month we will be downstairs.

Please remember your RSVP is very important! If you cannot make it please update your RSVP  even if it is on the same day as the meetup. We book the tables and the restaurant organizes their staff based on our booking so it is very important to get the number right.

Please let us know if you have any questions

    Chelsea, I apologize for not changing my RSVP.. sounds like a huge DUH, but in my feverish haze, the RSVP never even crossed my mind when I was writing my post explaining I wouldn't be able to come! Just clicking the RSVP button would have been much simpler!

    So sorry!

      No problem Lo, I actually saw your message so had adjusted the RSVP before the meetup. Thanks!

    Great meetup and a good book discussion. It was a shame that we had 16 no shows though. I understand last minute things happen but in this super connected world we live in 16 people could not find a way to log in and change RSVP? Sorry for the rant but the restaurant reserves tables and arranges staff to accommodate our group and I waste money on name tags and printing questions. I know not really a big deal but neither is common courtesy.

    I'm so bummed that after almost a year of not being able to join the meetings, I woke up with a sore throat and fever today :/ I don't want to pass it on, so I'll have to pass on the meeting tonight :( Have a fantastic time!

      Please stay with the group. We will still be here if and when you can make it to future meetups. And please feel free to start discussions on the message board if you would like to discuss the books!

    Chelsea, I was recently at Capital Ale House on Midlothian and noticed they had a back area that would probably be the perfect size for us. Just thought you might want to take a look at it.

      We met there twice before. The first time was great. The second time, the service was awful. Some people still hadn't received their food when the meeting was over!

      September 11, 2013

    • Chelsea

      We like the Ale House but have had too many bad book club experiences on the southside and in the West End. Either the service has been very slow or it was far too noisy.

    I think the ending was like that - of course because they are writing a "series" - got to pick up on the 2nd book! :<) I look forward to discussing this book. I do not normally read YA or Fantasy?? but it was interesting! Look forward to seeing where we will be meeting.

      Hi Kathryn, The Book for September is Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. At least I hope that was that the question you were asking :)?

    YEA this month is one of my favorite Genres. :D I like all the choices, and plan on reading them all, even though Miss Peregrine won out. :)
