Great book, a summer night,some appetizers (maybe tequila-lime chicken taco??), sangria and good discussion. Please be sure to RSVP because we will  NOT be at Panera. I will email you Heidi's address before the meet up. It's only a couple miles from our usual Panera. Hope to see you all there. Here is a link to a nice review of the book   http://www.readinggroupguides.com/reviews/the-speed-of-dark

    Heidi, as "normal" you did a fantastic job hosting! For everyone that brought a dish to pass, the food was tasty and appreciated! The discussion was interesting and I really liked being in an atmosphere where we didn't have to "filter" our comments!

    I enjoyed the discussion group last night. Thanks to Cathy for your extra work in getting that specicial chicken. Thanks to Heidi for letting us crash/trash her house. Thanks to Jeanne for referring to me as a trooper. And thanks to all of you for a lively discussion and finding out that we all are near normal.

    For anyone who hasn't given a shout out for what you might like to bring, I could use some regular and diet pop. Any takers? :)

    July 12, 2014

    • Heidi W

      I just read another post. How about 1 diet and 1 regular 7-up?

      July 14, 2014

    Heidi - along with the brownies, I will bring a bottle of regular pepsi and diet pepsi. I noticed some one was bringing lemon bars / so with the brownies we should have plenty of dessert.

    July 12, 2014

    • Heidi W

      Sounds great! Thanks!!

      July 14, 2014

  • Cathy

    For July, summer party and book discussion night, Heidi do you want me to bring some chicken tacos or anything, snacks, pop, whatever. You name it, I'll bring it!!! Just let me know. I have been dying to try crock pot tequila lime chicken so I'm game for that if you want.

    June 24, 2014

    • Heidi W

      Jeanne-How about some type of salad to go with the tequila lime chicken.

    Just a heads up that West Bloomfield Library does not have a copy of this book. It shows up in the catalog, but if you look further, it's listed a "missing." I finally put a MEL request in. Hope it gets here in time.

    Well due to my recent concentration problems I have gone back to a YA book I am reading AN ABUNDANCE OF KATHETINES I really loved John Greene TFIOS so I thought i would try another by him i havevto say I am enjoying It's not TFIOS but definitely good

    1 · June 20, 2014

    • Cathy

      i can't wait to see the movie!! Altho after the book I am afraid they will mess it up. I don't know if it can be better (or equal) to the book.

      1 · June 24, 2014

    • Cathy

      i finished KATHERINES and probably will move on to Looking for Alaska. I'm regressing in my literary pursuits haha
