Re: Book club / Reading group in / around Morges

Getting together to decide on books etc. sounds like a good idea to me.

If people want to move the meeting to another night, I can do any week night except Tuesday and Friday, generally speaking.

I spent a lot of time in hospital reading new-to-me authors in the women's fiction genre as well as re-reading a lot of Anne Tyler and the Narnia books (I always read Narnia when I'm ill).

Re: Book club / Reading group in / around Morges

Hi! I would love to join you for the book club. Still room for another member? :-) I am also very interested in the French one. Are there any dates planned yet?

Re: Book club / Reading group in / around Morges

Ladies and Shinigami: What is going on with this book group? I'm ready to get started up again after the summer hiatus. The week after next (September 13-17) is good for me at the same hotel in Morges.

Is this a good week for everybody? Am I supposed to have read something over the summer?!!!

Cheers, Riki

Re: Book club / Reading group in / around Morges

Haha, there was no homework, if I remember well, we are still going to go over the last Kundera for those interested for a few mins as per our last meet up, let's see if there are any movies left that we were planning on. Morges suits since it is between all our homes.

Welcome Jennifer, there is always room for newcomers, exciting! The French club - I will pm you laters, or we can talk about that when we meet. I will be back in CH tomorrow, so any wednesday or monday starting next week is great. Otherwise, no big agenda for the next meet up, let's just chill...

Re: Book club / Reading group in / around Morges

On a slightly selfish and slightly unrelated note...

Anyone fancy reading excepts from my novel and criticising them?

More info here.

Thanks!

Next week is possible, babysitter depending (hubby's travelling) - pick a day and I'll see what I can arrange.

Re: Book club / Reading group in / around Morges

Ok, who's up for the coming wednesday?

We might be able to adjust the regular meet up days laters..

Bring a list of books you found interesting and those who read Kundera, we could talk about him since we haven't finished.

Hurray for some new mind food and let's get it goin' again after a nice looooong summer break.

Re: Book club / Reading group in / around Morges

Hi all,

I just moved to Vaud [Essertes for now] for the next 2 years and would like very much to join your reading group. Is there another spot left ?

Regards, Wellmood

Weeheee, new faces, how nice! Of course there are spots for newcomers, we don't discriminate.

Ok, this wednesday it is, I will hop over to the calendar section to make an event, with an address and other details. We are reading in English, I am thinking of putting together a French offshoot club laters.

Re: Book club / Reading group in / around Morges

Earlier is much, much better for me as well, if we are seriously considering changing the time.

Re: Book club / Reading group in / around Morges

Let's get over to the calendar thread, I will be there at 7pm if anyone wants to be earlier. It would be better for me as well, but do not know if it's not too late to change the time.

Re: Book club / Reading group in / around Morges

I'm giving a presentation and demo to a customer from 2-4pm, so I'm technically free around 5pm for once O_O

I guess if I sleep well tonight, I could go right there and do some work while waiting for others to arrive *shrug*
