[close] This group was created as an online complement to the Mack-City Fantasy and Fiction Book Club. It's here in order to organise our face to face meetings, to chat more, to run polls on which books the group will read and to share our thoughts/reviews as individuals when we can't make the meetups! It is also an opportunity for people further afield in Central Queensland to participate in a book club who may only be able to make the occasional face to face meeting. MEETUPS are monthly and take place in various cafes in Mackay. They will be hosted by a rotating discussion leader and will typically go for an hour with the last fifteen minutes being general socialising and just hanging out! Monthly books will be nominated by members attending in person, with book nominations to be polled online by all members and open from the 1st to the 15th of the preceding month. Genres that will be alternated between will be: - General Fiction, Fantasy and Historical Fiction.
