message 1: by lily (new)

lily | 37 comments Hey everyone! I just wanted to give everyone a heads-up that the new member (Zoe Nightshade) is my friend from school. She might not get through All-American Boys in time, but she'll definitely read the next book we pick. Also, should this be the forum/thread that we put a new post on whenever we add a person?

Noa Bloom (noa_gh) | 72 comments Sounds good!


message 3: by Noa (new)

Noa Bloom (noa_gh) | 72 comments Welcome Zoe! I also just added my friend Vivian. She won't get to do All American Boys with us, but thats totally fine. Don't forget you guys can continue to add people even if we are in the middle of a book or discussion :)

message 25: by Sasha (new)

Sasha (sashahamel) | 64 comments Wow, Singapore! This book club is making its way around the world!


message 26: by Noa (new)

Noa Bloom (noa_gh) | 72 comments I know-that's so awesome!!


message 27: by Sasha (new)

Sasha (sashahamel) | 64 comments Hi! Since we have so many new members (yay!), I just thought I'd reiterate some of our rules. Here, we like to respectful of everybody's thoughts, ideas, and opinions. No two people have the same life experiences, and even if they did, they'd still have differing opinions, ideas, etc., so let's be empathetic and understanding of each other, all the while having deep and powerful discussions. This round, especially, we need to uphold these values since we are discussing a very emotional and potentially uncomfortable topic for some people (police racism and brutality). Thank you!


message 28: by Sasha (new)

Sasha (sashahamel) | 64 comments Side note: I was full-on freaking out about how AWESOME it is that we have someone from Singapore!! I mean, what?! That's so cool!!!!


message 29: by Noa (new)

Noa Bloom (noa_gh) | 72 comments I know!!! Sasha and I are like both freaking out on how cool this is ;)


message 30: by Sasha (new)

Sasha (sashahamel) | 64 comments I’m from New York City :)


message 31: by Sasha (new)

Sasha (sashahamel) | 64 comments If you don't mind my asking, where in the UK?


message 32: by Sasha (new)

Sasha (sashahamel) | 64 comments Oh, I love London. That’s so cool!


message 33: by Sasha (new)

Sasha (sashahamel) | 64 comments Where in the US did you travel?


message 34: by Noa (new)

Noa Bloom (noa_gh) | 72 comments I also live in NYC- (and I have for almost my whole life) it’s loud and busy but I love it ;)


message 35: by Sasha (new)

Sasha (sashahamel) | 64 comments NYC is clearly the greatest city in the world and there’s no denying it. Sorry. :)

(PS you should visit one day! It’s great)


message 36: by Sasha (new)

Sasha (sashahamel) | 64 comments (PSS I’m kidding. Sort of. I’m kidding but I’m not)


message 37: by Sasha (new)

Sasha (sashahamel) | 64 comments What’s Singapore like?


message 38: by Sasha (new)

Sasha (sashahamel) | 64 comments NYC is still in Phase 1, I believe, and the Governor of the State of New York (Andrew Cuomo) threatened to basically undo all of the reopening because of people’s refusal to practice proper social distancing!! Crazy, right?! So annoying. But it’s great that Singapore is entering Phase 2!


message 39: by Noa (new)

Noa Bloom (noa_gh) | 72 comments My dad went on a trip to Singapore and he totally fell in love!! He still talks about the botanical gardens ;) Also I am totally jealous that you are going to buy books!!


message 40: by Sasha (new)

Sasha (sashahamel) | 64 comments I also just realized that it’s 11:14 PM here and 11:14 AM where you are...I was gonna say goodnight, but I guess good morning!
