Kristel (fanarchist) | 489 comments I'm finished with the book! I honestly enjoyed myself reading it, but there are certainly parts that (view spoiler)

I'll try to respond to the discussion without tipping my hand too much with how I feel, lol. In the meantime, this is essentially my RSVP for the F2F discussion.

Marie | 295 comments @Kristel: Wow, ang bilis ah! Nice! :-D

I tried to make an event page for the discussion but it said i wasn't allowed. TFG admins, help? :-)


Ranee | 1902 comments Noted Marie! Siguro, let us first set the venue before creating the event invite? Any particular thing you are looking for/demand for the venue? Projectors etc?

Ranee | 1902 comments May livestream nga ang A tale of two cities eh. I dunno, a visual interpretation of flying?


Marie | 295 comments I found a venue na (see info above).


Marie | 295 comments Posted the menu above na rin. They said that they can also customize a set menu that is cheaper than the one I've posted.

When I discovered TFG, I just showed up in The Book Thief F2F. I'd been looking for people I can talk to about books and bookish stuff. TFG filled that need and met my expectations. So all you have to do is show up :)

Ay lol I literally saw this just now :p Glad to see that the F2F was a success. Sorry for not attending.

I'm just that odd, introverted type of shy + suplado combination who prefers the online discussion ^_^
