    *bah! edited I thought the time suggested was 3:30, not 7:30! *

    7:30pm would be ideal for me, I could probably make it a little earlier (like say 6:30), but I'm driving out to Banff that day, so having it in the evening works for me.

    Unfortunately I won't be able to make the meeting either - I have to work as well.

    :rolleyes: Many sacrifices must be made - but it's all for C4!!!

    Well folks - I have company in town this weekend and the hoped for free evening on Sunday looks like it is evaporating.
    I hate to do this, but I'm thinking it will be easier to bail than try to cram too much into that evening...

    There's quite a few of us who have said they couldn't make it... would Dec 10, 7:30pm at Boomtown work for more of us?

    Sorry sorry sorry,
    Jen

    Yeah, it would be a little counter-productive to have the meeting without the person who suggested the book to chair the meeting. So it's agreed: we'll adjourn until the 10th. :)

    Cool, if it's next Sunday (the 10th) then I might even be able to make it! See y'all then.

    Remember: the enemy's gate is down.

    How's everyone doing on this one? Who all is actually reading it? I think we had a lot of dropouts from the initial group.

    We seem to be meeting for book club every 3 months. The first book (Fahrenheit 451) was July-September, the second (Ender's Game) October-December. This seems to place the "American Gods" meeting in March. I hope to be done soon so I can pass the book off to veritate so she can finish it in time.

    We need to meet somewhere that has mead on the menu. ;)

    I'm reading and I'm 180 pages in. I'm a slow reader so I hope we aren't meeting this month...

    To give the book club some onus to finish, I propose setting the next get together on Sunday March 18 to discus American Gods.

    I think we need to reschedule. If Dooks would kindly pick a date/time we can move forward.
