Hi-

The first meeting of the KS_Booknerds went great! We had good turnout and a wonderful discussion! We decided on Lolita, by Vladimir Nabokov, for our next book. The House of Cha worked out well, so we'll be meeting there again. Our next meeting will be on Sunday, August 21st at 4, at the House of Cha. Hope to see you there!

Also, we set up a Yahoo group, which seems to work easier, since many people don't have Livejournal accounts, so join our Yahoo group at:

Need a ride. [Jul. 26th, 2005|11:19 pm]

Is anyone coming to the meeting tonight willing to give me a ride back from the meeting? I can get there with no problem. Unfortunately, I live in Lecompton, a fact that is going to change in a little less than two weeks. I'm willing to provide gas money, and, um, some pleasant conversation.

If anyone could possibly do that, drop me an email at shannon@dreamingrain.com and we can set something up.

Thanks in advance.

Hey Everyone-

How are you liking Wicked? I just started it yesterday, and love it so far! It's very different from what I expected. I don't know that much about the Wizard of Oz, so I'm wondering how the two play off each other.

I need to make a reservation with The House of Cha this week, and they want to know how many people to expect. Can you please reply to this or post if you plan on attending?

Can't wait to see everyone next Wednesday.

Borders Discount [Jun. 24th, 2005|03:01 pm]

Hi everyone-

I talked to some people at Borders yesterday and they do a 20% discount for book club members. We would need to tell them our book, they order them in (takes less than a week), and each of us would pick them up from the front register (tell them you are in KS Booknerds book group) and you will get a 20% discount. The catch? We would need to regularly order 8-10 copies of the book. So if only say three of us wanted to do this, it wouldn't work out. Let me know what you think of the idea, if you're up for it, and if you want to order a book at a discount through Borders.

Happy reading!

P.S. I've made a flyer and will put some up around town. Any suggestions for where to put them? I'm thinking the library, maybe KU's library, and I'm a volunteer with Audio Reader, so I'll put on there. If you want to post them somewhere, let me know, and I'll email it to you as an attachment.

Once we all meet for the first time, we can decide where to meet in the future, how to choose books, etc. I'm up for meeting anywhere, and reading just about anything. Email or post any questions or comments. Thanks!
