PLEASE NOTE DATE CHANGE

Finally we've decided on a date :) Thanks for the "push" Mish - we've pinched your date too, so it must be a good one ;)

For those interested in coming along to our next get together, please put your names down in this thread, and we will advise you with details of the venue once the numbers are confirmed.

Date - Saturday, 13th August
Time - 11.00am for coffee followed by lunch
Location - City
RSVP - 5th August

Also the Mystery Book Swap was successful at our last get together, so we thought it might be fun to do it again.

Mystery Book Swap

1. Bring along one book to the venue to give away – preferably a new book or a book in excellent condition.

2. Wrap the book in whatever paper you have at home.

3. Place a tag on the wrapping with the description of the genre.

4. Each participants name will be placed in a hat, and when your name is drawn, you can select a mystery book from the pile.

Join us for a great few hours chatting books (among other things!)

If you have some books you'd like to give away, list them here. Anyone who'd like them can say and that person's name will be put beside the book :)

Don't worry if you don't have any though...

message 10: by Veronica ⭐️ (new)

Veronica ⭐️ | 2248 comments Yes, I'll be there. The girls netball will have to do without me for one week.

Brenda can I bring a literary themed gift that isn't a book. I bought something with the meet in mind. But if you don't want to stray from the book theme I don't mind.

Brenda | 69299 comments Mod

Sorry you can't make it, Dale!

message 39: by Melissa (new)

Melissa (Mel’s Bookshelf) (melsbookshelf) | -59 comments Hi all!!
Thanks for letting me know about this thread Veronica! :-)

I will have to see if I can switch around some work shifts as I work every Friday night and getting to the city after work will be impossible as I won't be able to safely drive because I'll be a zombie.

I'll confirm this week, if I'm not working the Saturday night too I can catch the train in. I might just fall asleep in my lunch ;-)

Suzanne, did you want to pass any more on to your mum before returning them?

I will see how much I have to bring and fit in what I can.
