Hi,

I just read a bit about Middlex – I think it’s a good choice, sounds really intersting. I can borrow the book, so there is no need for ordering the book for me. But thanks for the offer.
About the next meeting: 24th of July would be fine for me. I am not sure if it makes sense to meet before, at least for me. Regarding the lenght of the book (over 700 pages), I don’t think I will have read the first 350 pages long before the 24th. But feel free to organize a half-way meeting, if there is interest.
If the weather is nice, we could meet somewhere at the Main.

Theresa

if the weather is good why not at the bank of Main ?


> Any suggestions for a quieter place?

I like the 2-4-6 week idea, and I need to order some stuff from Amazon anyway, so I'm covered. I liked the location last night, we could try it out again and if it's too loud, look for another location. (Plus, I think it was loud in response to us being loud during our political debate. ;) )

i can understand your concerns regarding half way meetings but on the other side it is good to have some continuity in such a club. So may be next time we chose a book which could be done in acceptable time frame. I already started the book and looking forward for some good discussion.

In for all above mentioned dates.

Hi everyone,

I have been meaning to read this book for a while, so its great that you have chosen it for the next book!

I can't make it until the August meeting but will hopefully have finished it by then :) Really looking forward to it! I would also vote for an outdoor setting if the weather allows.

See you in August

Ami

p.s. Thanks for the tip on the library Sue, do you mean the Stadtbibliothek near the Kleinmarkthalle? I work right there so will give it a go before order the book itself...

Oops. Well to be fair, I was on holiday. Finished the book in a couple days. I'll try not to give too much away then, or wait until we discuss the whole thing.

I'll join as well on Tuesday. I haven't finished reading yet, so focusing on the first part will be easy for me...

Hallo! I will definitely come if I can on Tuesday, but I'm an au-pair, and I'm realizing that with sommerferien things are a bit unpredictable... sorry! I will let you know for sure next Monday.

:)

I'm also on holiday, but will be back on Saturday. What about a meeting around 21/22/23 of august? I guess most people will be back then.

Hi everyone! I'm a bit too late for this book, but look forward to the next one to join :). Enjoy the holidays!
