Barely a Book Club

Teetering on the edge of a normal book club

What is the Schedule? May 14, 2009

Filed under: Books read in 2009,Movie Night,What is the What — antof9 @ 10:38 am

Ok gang — it looks like our calendar could be questionable in the next few weeks. We already know the sisters are unavailable on the 16th (composting class?!), and Ant has something on the 23rd. The 30th is a holiday weekend, so how does everyone feel about not meeting until June 6, when we can also finish “What is the What”? Does that work for everyone?

Future scheduling:

  • Finishing Great Expectations on VHS — any chance you could all come on Friday night (yes, the 15th) around 7-7:30?
  • Movie night for “What is the What”? Now taking suggestions/ideas
  • Since some of our other books are still only available in hardback, we’ll do “Snow in August” next (first meeting week would be June 20)

Qué is the qué May 7, 2009

Filed under: Books read in 2009,What is the What — antof9 @ 10:12 pm

Ok gang — let’s try for The French Press again. Since the Inspector is out, it’s just a Westside BBC this week. Read another 5 chapters, up to Chapter 15 (XV) this time.

See you at 10:30!


What is the Meeting Place? April 30, 2009

Filed under: Books read in 2009,What is the What — antof9 @ 11:55 pm

Sorry for the delay in blog posting this week. Not sure where everyone is, so let’s make it easy and say we should read through chapter 10 for Saturday.

Can we please meet at The French Press again?

85 South Union Blvd, Ste H
Lakewood, CO 80228
(303) 984-5447

Inspector, it’s actually easy to find, but the online directions had me in circles. Take 6th West to Union and turn left (South) on Union. Drive toward Alameda and it’s in the strip mall area up behind the Wendy’s on the right-hand side. There’s a Curves back there, too. It’s little and charming and not very expensive.


BBC Calendar — Here’s the Plan April 4, 2009

Filed under: Dickens,Great Expectations,Movie Night,What is the What — antof9 @ 4:14 pm

Great Expectations: finished today and looking forward to the miniseries!
What is the What: read the first 5 chapters (sorry, Kylle — they appear to be Roman Numberals again!) for the next BBC meeting.

  • Saturday the 11th: in keeping with our “take a week off after each book” policy, there will be no BBC on the 11th.
  • Saturday the 18th: since we’re meeting on the 19th for “Movie Night”, there will be no meeting on the 18th.
  • Sunday the 19th: Meet at 3:30 at Ant’s. Dinner will be provided. Email if you need directions. We can briefly (or more) discuss the first 5 chapters of WitW before starting the VCR 🙂
  • Saturday the 25th: Ant has to work, so someone else is in charge 🙂
