So while the group is growing, do we want to meet up to get things started and figure out our first book? What are everyone's thoughts?


message 2: by Jacob (new)

Jacob Hamby | 16 comments I'm absolutely up for this. I believe that figuring out a day and time would be the kicker. Unfortunately i work all weekend (every weekend), but any time during the week is great for me.

In addition to that I made this survey with some genre questions to figure out everyone's preferences! https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BMBHHVF

Devon B | 3 comments Saw this group on reddit and would love to join in! I took the poll/survey, but and wanted to add that any night works for me, weeknights after 7 PM. 😊 I’m looking forward to this!

Do we want to plan to do an initial meeting this Thursday at 7 or 7:30?? Where would everyone want to meet?

Joshua Wenzel (jrwenzel) | 1 comments I’ll be in Florida next week. I’m very interested in this group but I may have to be more of an online presence rather than in person. My work schedule is very hectic and irregular.


message 12: by Jacob (new)

Jacob Hamby | 16 comments I believe 730 is a good time to meet. We could always meet somewhere like the bearden beer market if everyone is 21 and up

No worries! I’ll make sure our books get posted and you can just come when you can!

Beverly Tomov | 1 comments I'll go ahead and toss out a suggestion..The Feather Thief: Beauty, Obsession, and the Natural History Heist of the Century, by Kirk Wallace Johnson...https://www.amazon.com/Feather-Thief-...
The case discussed in this book was also the subject of an amazing recent episode of This American Life: https://www.thisamericanlife.org/654/...
What do people think? Interested in anyone else's suggestions...

Thanks Beverly! I am making a list of books that we can potentially vote on to be our first official book. I will add this to the list. I also encourage everyone else to come to the first meeting with some suggestions!

message 28: by Jacob (new)

Jacob Hamby | 16 comments Not that many people have been super active on goodreads, so we will see how many people show up for the first meeting :). I wouldn’t worry about it too much. I know some other people that want to come but got called in to work.
