Marianne (cloggiedownunder) | 8056 comments 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 17th February 2018
Time - 11.00am for coffee followed by lunch
Location -Not quite City (walking distance from station though)
RSVP - Friday 9th February 2018

Also, because the Mystery Book Swap was successful, 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 participant's 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!)

Definites

Sarah Maddox (sarahmaddox) | 42 comments I'm in, pending logistics of date and place. we had such a great meetup last time. I'm in the middle of the book I gained from that occasion - a historical romance about the perfume industry. I'm mobile at the moment and don't have the book details but so far it's a very rewarding read.
Cheers
Sarah

February should be ok for me, depending on the date, though I'll be around 7.5 - 8 months pregnant, so I might be a little awkward.... and a lot Fat!!! lol
