Jen (alatariel97) | 50 comments I fully realize that I may be the only one out there! I'm in Jackson, so anyone from Ann Arbor, Lansing, Battle Creek... we can make something work!

I also work at a winery that would be a perfect place for a local hangout! In case you are in the area and were on the fence...

message 2: by Betsy (new)

Betsy | 2 comments Detroit area here, but I would definitely be up for a drive if something like this were to happen!

message 3: by Kelly (new)

Kelly Benzin | 20 comments I'm in Grand Rapids and highly doubt I will find anyone else here! I would be willing to make the drive if whatever is planned works with my schedule! (I travel a lot in the summer.)

message 4: by Jen (new)

Jen (alatariel97) | 50 comments Well, three Michiganders is better than I had thought! Maybe we will find some more. Too bad we are all scattered throughout the state!

I also have an open schedule. Let's see if there are any others (doubtful, but maybe!) and perhaps we can set something up in a place that is fairly central to all of us. I don't think Jackson is going to be great, but maybe Lansing or something?

Hope | 20 comments Im not in Michigan but I am very close lol I live in Toledo Ohio and would love to meet up with some fellow VF peeps

message 6: by Leah (new)

Leah | 100 comments Detroit area here as well, I'd e up for a drive once a month for sure though!

message 7: by Jen (new)

Jen (alatariel97) | 50 comments Anyone interested in a meetup this month? I can still offer up the winery where I work as an option, as it is conveniently located right off of I-94. Otherwise I'm open to whatever!

I just downloaded Cthulhurotica for Kindle (my first-ever Kindle purchase!) so I'm excited to hear other people's thoughts.

This is my last semester of library school (MLIS at Wayne State) so I'm kinda busy but always reading! I also have to be in Detroit a couple times this fall to get ready for graduation, so I'm not sure if there are more VFers in the Detroit area (didn't see a thread...) but I'd be up for something over there too!

message 8: by Leah (new)

Leah | 100 comments I'm down for a meet up! If people are concerned about a middle ground for meeting we could even do a Google+ Hangout.

message 9: by Jen (new)

Jen (alatariel97) | 50 comments Oh yeah! G+ would be a great solution! I'm definitely down for that. Do we want to perhaps wait a couple weeks to give people a chance to get started on the books?

message 10: by Leah (new)

Leah | 100 comments Here is my G+. Feel free to add me!!

A couple weeks is a good idea. I have to wait til my check comes before I can get them. I'm a fast reader though, so it wont be a problem.

If this works out well maybe we could do a G+ twice a month, add our own book? Just a suggestion! I hope we can all agree on a day!

message 11: by Jen (new)

Jen (alatariel97) | 50 comments Here's my G+ also - feel free to add!

We'll have to see about adding books - it will depend on how long each is and whatnot. I haven't had too much trouble reading both picks, as long as I don't have to use interlibrary loan too often. For this month's, not a library in the state (or even in the country!) had a copy, so it was the Kindle edition for me!

This is my last semester of grad school, too, so I may not have a ton of extra time for reading. However, I had time this month to read the second Kushiel's book, both VF picks, and a couple other shorter books - and that's just reading at night. So I think I should be OK. :)

message 12: by Kelly (new)

Kelly Benzin | 20 comments I think doing a G+ hangout is a brilliant idea! I added Jen and Leah to a circle. So feel free to add me back! (I'm on my phone and can't get the link.)
I'm really excited for Cthulhurotica, I'm sure it's going to be racy being Bonnie's pick and all!

message 13: by Leah (new)

Leah | 100 comments I just got my copy of Cthulhurotica! I'll be done by next week. Let me know when you gals wanna try a hangout!

message 14: by Jen (new)

Jen (alatariel97) | 50 comments OK, sorry for the delay! I went crazy with the MeL loans, so I've been reading like mad. Plus I've got a couple essays I'm working on for grad school, and work and life... ANYHOW, I just finished Eternal Pleasure today. I think the hangout for the actual club is tonight? I'd be willing to try for a hangout later in the week, too, if you guys still want to? If not, no biggie. We can try for next month!

message 15: by Lauren (new)

Lauren (girllawrin) | 37 comments I'm about smack in the middle of Lansing and Grand Rapids in a lil berg called Lake Odessa. As soon as I get my car fixed I am happy to head down to the D or easily to Lansing or Grand Rapids. I will add you guys on G+!

message 16: by Jen (new)

Jen (alatariel97) | 50 comments We have got to try to put something together - even if it's just a G+ hangout for now! I've been crazy busy with grad school, but I'm done on Dec. 8. I know it's the holidays, but maybe we can find a day for a hangout?

message 17: by Leah (new)

Leah | 100 comments I love this idea!

message 18: by Lauren (new)

Lauren (girllawrin) | 37 comments I do as well... AND Motor city comic con this year is going to be HUGE, down in Novi, MI... (Stan Lee will be there as well as the Main cast of Boondock Saints)
I think a G+ Hangout would be perfect over the holidays!
I will be there all 3 days but it would be a great venue if we wanted to meet up in person! (it's the 2nd weekend in May I believe)

message 19: by Jen (new)

Jen (alatariel97) | 50 comments Motor City Comic Con is a cool idea! I've never been, but it sounds fun!

I've gotta get the books for this month, but do we want to try to tentatively schedule a G+ hangout? Pretty much anytime outside the weekends are good for me...

message 20: by Jodi (new)

Jodi (jahdzia) | 11 comments I will be going to Motor City Comic Con too. I think on Google+ VF some one mentioned getting together for a meal (ps I'm in Troy, MI)

message 21: by Leah (new)

Leah | 100 comments Jodi, you're right down the road from me! I'm in Shelby Twp. MC Comic Con seems to have become a bigger deal than when I was younger! This is excellent, I'll definitely make an appearance if you gals are going to be there.

message 22: by Leah (new)

Leah | 100 comments I did about five seconds of research, MC Comic Con is in May 17-19. Is there a day that would probably work best for everyone? Probably Saturday or Sunday for me.

message 23: by Betsy (new)

Betsy | 2 comments I would definitely love to go to the Comic Con...I'm getting married the weekend after, so I might be busy with all the stuff that I'm inevitably going to procrastinate doing, but I'll definitely try to fit going in!

message 24: by Jen (new)

Jen (alatariel97) | 50 comments I'm not sure if I'll be able to make it this year - since I just got my Master's in Library Science, I'm going to a big conference in Indianapolis in April to try to make some connections and hopefully get some job interviews lined up. Anyway, that's eating up a lot of my budget this year. I'll keep it in mind and hopefully swing it if I can!

message 25: by Jodi (new)

Jodi (jahdzia) | 11 comments Oh really? Dang I'm getting married about then so I can't go after all. Any other meetup ideas?

message 26: by Pamela (new)

Pamela (geometricorder87) | 36 comments Hi all. I'm new to the boards and live in Lansing. I'd love to meet up or do a G+ hangout thing. Let me know what's going on :-)

message 27: by Laura (new)

Laura Hello! I lurk here in the forums and I'm catching up on books (I'm way behind, but I want to read them all!), but I also live in Lansing (Hello Pamela!) and would love to meet up somewhere. Feel free to add me as a friend or send me a message!

message 28: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 1 comments hello. new to the group. I live in muskegon.

message 29: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer Boerner | 1 comments If this group is still hanging out, I'd love to join. Just joined the whole Vaginal Fantasy Book Club. I'm in Oakland County, so pretty much anything in SE MI is easily reachable. (Obviously haven't read any of the books yet, since I JUST joined.)

message 30: by Leah (new)

Leah | 100 comments Jennifer, you're right by me! I live in Shelby Twp!

message 31: by Jodi (new)

Jodi (jahdzia) | 11 comments Nothing has happened yet that I am aware of. There is U-con next month in Ypsilanti we'll be at. Anyone else going?

message 39: by Leah (new)

Leah | 100 comments How was the turn out for your November meetup? I wish I could come, I don't think my car would make the 2 hour drive though. :(

I'm in Brighton, MI which isn't too bad of a drive (when we don't have over a foot of snow)and would like to join your meetup. When and where is the next meetup? Thanks! Lisa

Hiya! My name is Brandi. I only moved to Michigan about 5 months ago and so was excited to see there's a VF hangout not too far away! I'm in Howell, right next to Brighton (neat coincidence there!), and, like Lisa (whose comment spurred by chiming in; thanks Lisa!), would be happy to join your group, if I may. I look forward to hearing about future meet-ups!

message 42: by Laura (new)

Laura Hey, sorry it took a few days to respond, but we're having our meetup at The Avenue in Lansing this Friday, Feb 27th at 7pm. The address is 2021 E. Michigan Ave and we'll probably be there a bit early. Hope to see you there, message me if you have any questions!

message 43: by Laura (new)

Laura Hello again everyone! We are having another meetup this month in Lansing, but we are a bit more flexible this time. We would like to meet either Friday, March 27 in the evening or Sunday, March 29 in the afternoon. We have previously decided on The Avenue for our meetups, but if people would prefer a setting that was not a bar (but still serves drinks!), we could meet at Soup Spoon instead.

Please let us know if you have a preference for location and/or date! We would love to have the opportunity for more people to join us.

Soup Spoon website:

message 44: by Brandi (new)

Brandi (biddywink) | 112 comments Has there been a time, date, and location set yet?
As I am available both dates and up for either location, I hadn't responded till now.

message 45: by Laura (new)

Laura Yes! We have decided to meet at 2pm Sunday afternoon at Soup Spoon. Hope to see you there!

message 46: by Pamela (new)

Pamela (geometricorder87) | 36 comments Hi All! I forgot that Soup Spoon is actually closed on Sunday. So we're moving the meeting to Beggars Banquet at 218 Abbot Road, East Lansing 48823. The time is still the same though, 2pm tomorrow the 29th. I hope to see you there!

message 47: by Pamela (new)

Pamela (geometricorder87) | 36 comments Hi again! The place we were going to try and meet at, Beggars Banquet will be too crazy tomorrow because MSU has a game. So instead we are going to do AI Fusion, 2827 E. Grand River Ave, East Lansing 48823. I made a reservation so if you would like to join us just let me know and I'll have then add another to our party. :)

message 48: by Emily (new)

Emily (emilybriggs007) | 2 comments man, I wish I was just a little closer- I'm up in Muskegon. if you guys ever decide to move it just a tad north, I'm in!

message 49: by Phoenix (new)

Phoenix Kelley (phoenixkelley) | 59 comments Brandi, I want to friend you but I can't, because I don't know where you went to college!

message 50: by Brandi (new)

Brandi (biddywink) | 112 comments Oops! I forgot I had that challenge answer thing on here, Rhiannon. Thanks for letting me know. I took it off and friended you!
