Tina (tinamats) | 2665 comments Opening this thread as requested by our discussion moderator this month!

We don't have a final venue just yet, but Beejay (view spoiler) told me that it will be just in the Ortigas area, in the afternoon. We're hoping to secure a venue this week, and we'll update everyone accordingly once it is confirmed. For now, please let us know if you can attend by posting here or confirming your attendance in the event invite.

F2F15: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
March 23, 2013, Saturday
Cafe Breton at The Hub,
Greenfield District, Mandaluyong

I'll let Beejay fill you guys in if he has any activities and stuff. :)

See you guys on the 23rd!


Tina (tinamats) | 2665 comments Updated the venue as requested by the moderator! Please note:

Cafe Breton at The Hub, Greenfield District, Mandaluyong City

Doing a Google gives us their Facebook! But since I'm not allowed to open Facebook, I will leave this to you guys to browse. :D

Greenfield District is right across EDSA Shangrila from Shaw Blvd -- it used to be EDSA Central, I think? I haven't been there in ages, but it shouldn't be hard to find. :)

And because! Cafe Breton is <3!

HUHUHU. :(

If the husband gets too lazy to drive all the way to Pansol, I'll definitely show up. Wahaha. :D

Hi, Beejay! Keep calm and steal books, errrrr, moderate! ;)

Tina (tinamats) | 2665 comments Monique: huhuhuhu! :( Haha, should we wish for laziness to visit this weekend? :))

And also, random fact! It was some sort of tradition for the first TFG meet-ups before F2Fs to end at Cafe Breton. To the point na kami na ang nagsasara ng store haha. XD

Tina (tinamats) | 2665 comments Commercial lang! In case I don't have the time to post this tomorrow, ipopost ko na ngayon.

We'll be voting for our June book after the F2F. Our book selections are:

Book selections:
* Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk
* Running with Scissors by Augusten Burroughs
* The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay by Michael Chabon

Our moderator for June is Tricia. Tricia, if you can say something about the books (synopsis, why you chose it, etc) on Saturday, we'd appreciate it. :) Thank you! :)
