Nathalie (MelodramaBabs) | 1 comments Just thought I'd say hello since this group doesn't seem very active (not that I'm typicaly that active in groups)

Are any of your part of the meetup.com bookclub group?

Gina (Get-Your-Read-On) | 6 comments Is there any news? Calgarians unite for a book club!?


message 13: by Monique (new)

Monique Massiah | 9 comments Hi do you want to form the club, how many members do we need?


message 14: by Carolyn (new)

Carolyn (Caerol) | 6 comments A book club? Well, count me in.


message 15: by Scott (new)

Scott (ClanYoung) | 2 comments I figure, build it and they will come. Sounds like we have a few people interested.. What kind of format are we looking at? People post their book of the week? Physical book club or virtual? I love talking over recent books over a pint. Should we use meetup.com or something like that to manage it?


message 16: by Gina (new)

Gina (Get-Your-Read-On) | 6 comments Yeah sure. even if it's just three of us at first. it's been hard to find a book club in calgary. should we start with five members? I'm definitely interested. weekly, monthly?


message 17: by Carolyn (new)

Carolyn (Caerol) | 6 comments I think meetup is a good start.


message 18: by Gina (new)

Gina (Get-Your-Read-On) | 6 comments Should we create a new topic, that's more recent, with more details?

Meet up is a good start. I agree.


message 19: by Monique (new)

Monique Massiah | 9 comments I'm all for a meetup!


message 20: by Carolyn (new)

Carolyn (Caerol) | 6 comments Happy New Year!

And maybe happy new book club? I'm all for stories, ideas, and camaraderie.

I think we are all in the same page for meetup!


message 21: by Monique (new)

Monique Massiah | 9 comments Hi Carolyn!
Happy New Year as well. Do you think we should create a group on Meetup.com, or should we just decide to meet from here?


message 22: by Carolyn (new)

Carolyn (Caerol) | 6 comments With meetup.com there is a commitment to meet once a month which I think gives enough time to plan one's schedule.

We all have ideas and a casual meetup will help up discuss the goal of the club. (Now there's a reason to constantly read--from the last page read a month ago.)


message 23: by Leanne (new)

Leanne (LDittyDoo) | 3 comments I'd be really interested in joining too. I love book recommendations from other people.

message 25: by Gina (new)

Gina (Get-Your-Read-On) | 6 comments shall we get started? if one of us creates the meet up will we all be on Board to continue with it?


message 26: by Carolyn (new)

Carolyn (Caerol) | 6 comments The big question is who will lead us? Is there anyone who is up for the challenge? I think it's clear that we all want to have a book club. So where do we go from here?


message 27: by Monique (new)

Monique Massiah | 9 comments Can someone set up the meet up group and we can each vote on which books to read and share per month?


message 28: by Monique (new)

Monique Massiah | 9 comments Do you want me to set up the meet up page?


message 29: by Monique (new)

Monique Massiah | 9 comments I'll setup the page, but I don't want to be a full time leader.


message 30: by Carolyn (new)

Carolyn (Caerol) | 6 comments Hi, Monique.

I appreciate your initiative in setting up a meetup group but I think we can all get started right away if we join an established book club in meetup.com.

I haven't search for a group yet. It would be best if we could join in a group not sticking to a genre.

Share your thoughts and discovery!


message 31: by Monique (new)

Monique Massiah | 9 comments Awesome!


message 32: by Gina (new)

Gina (Get-Your-Read-On) | 6 comments I've not had luck finding groups in Calgary that are still active aside from the one at Chapters every month. Do any of you participate in that?


message 33: by Gina (new)

Gina (Get-Your-Read-On) | 6 comments I'm still interested in getting this going lol.

I haven't seen anything besides the Chapters one. Does anyone have ideas?
