Time:
8pm inside - it'll be chilly!
I'll tell a bar person who we are and where we are sitting, so just ask at the bar to avoid the lost look

Bring:
  • 1 or 2 (max) suggestions for the first book - maybe a plot summary also, so that we can all make an informed desicion.
  • Your diary / some available dates for around the same time next month - so we can plan the next meet up.
Anyone welcome - men / boys, women / girls, any age, any reading preference (within reason!) and any drink preference!

Look forward to seeing you all there on Wednesday 28th.

Any questions just PM.


RSVP'd Yes: 12 (9 members and 3 guests) RSVP'd Maybe: 3 (3 members and No guests) RSVP'd No: 2
  • Never Eat Yellow Snow - Sadly can't make the first meet-up as have had to go back to the UK unexpectedly. If I can be helpful bringing books back, just let me know (as long as those that request anything are serious - I don't want to end up with 6 copies of the same book!) Ho...
  • Lavender - Unable to make the first meeting but hope to see you all next month, have fun!
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

Re: Book Club in Morges!

I'm not really a book person (apart from reading computer books/manuals/how to's), but can I join just to see what stuff will be talked about and share a tea or two?

Re: Book Club in Morges!

Ladies, sorry I was a no-show. We learned at 7 p.m. of a death in the family and I had to fly back to the US. Please post whatever you decided about books and dates because I definitely want to join. Thanks!

Re: Book Club in Morges!

Sorry to hear about your lost. Hope you are doing ok despite the sad news.

The book club was great, there was a lot of us there. The hotel bar is fine fine fine, so classy and low key. Erm took the notes with books to get and the next meeting was voted on Wedn Nov 25, if I remember well. We try not to meet too close to xmas, but if I am here I would not actually mind. There is always a need for some Vine Chaud and egg nog. Nice to have met local EFers from Vaud.
