What we're about
Meet kindred book lovers in a local Meetup Book Club! Fiction or non-fiction, paperback or hardcover, you'll read at least a new book every month. Come to laugh, share stories and make new friends! Aside from being "just" a book club, we are also somewhat social, so don't be shy!
Part of the purpose of this book club is to go beyond our "comfort zones" with the books we enjoy and to expand our horizons where literature is concerned. You may just learn that you love a genre that you never considered before! Anyone that loves books is welcome.
Last year we had several book club meetups and attended a couple of movies. We have seen "Gone Girl", which was a previous fiction selection and "Insurgent", among others. We'll see what other movies come along this year that we might want to see as a group. There are several movies coming out this year which are based on novels, such as "Still Alice".
For those that are interested in checking us out, we generally meet one Sunday a month (sometimes two!) at Rao's Bakery on Cypresswood and Stuebner Airline. We meet for movies usually on Sundays also, in between our regular "book" meetups.
****WE DO NOT REVIEW OR CRITIQUE UNPUBLISHED OR SELF-PUBLISHED AUTHORS. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A GROUP TO "SELL" YOUR NOVEL TO, WE ARE NOT YOUR GROUP!****
We are all adults, and we will all be expected to conduct ourselves as such. But just in case there is any question, the following will not be accepted or tolerated:
~General bad behavior, malicious gossip, drama and histrionics.
~Excessive use of alcohol or any use of drugs during a Meetup.
~Attending a Meetup for the sole purpose of promoting/advertising a business or business venture. Girl Scout cookies, children's school fundraising, that type is acceptable. "Birthday clubs", pyramid schemes, etc. are not!
~Inappropriate behavior such as sexual harrassment.
!!**Everyone is expected to pay for themselves, when we have meetups where payment may be required.**!!
**Not everyone will get along with everyone else all the time, and when that happens, we shall just agree to disagree.**
