Hey hey Readers! Get ready for our 2013 FREE FOR ALL!
As always, we like to give y'all a bit of a break for the holidays, so for our January meetup we won't be having any assigned reading. All you need to do is come prepared to tell us all about the best book you read over the holidays! Or maybe you'd rather just tell us about your favourite book of all time!
As long as it's a book, and you love it, we'll be happy little book worms.
Those of us who have done this in previous years can tell you that this format is a fantastic way to learn about new books - and since they come recommended by a fellow book lover you know it's a good recommendation! We'll make a list of everyone's books and post it to the message board for future reference. See you in January!
If the RSVP list is full don't hesitate to jump on the waiting list. You'll be surprised how fast the list turns over as the big day approaches (especially the last 24hrs!). So if you DO wind up on the waiting list you'd better keep your calender clear.
Just a brief note on our methods and madness:
We don't expect you to always have the time to read both monthly book selections. So you can rest assured that our conversations are so deliciously booky in general, that you really only need to be a lover of the written word to find something to get down and dirty with!
The point of choosing more then one book is to engage as many different tastes as possible. The added bonus is that it gives us a platform for discussion - which is why the books we choose are always thematically similar.
That said, its entirely up to you how much you're going to be bothered by spoilers, or discussion about books you haven't read, because we don't hold back!
So if you want to come out - even if you haven't read the books - you're more then welcome! Even folks who haven't read any of the books on offer that month at all have left having had a great time!
* Oh, because I know you're going to ask, all of our books are chosen as a collective at each meeting. We're like the Borg that way.
