Hi, everyone! :) I've got the book, and have started it as well. So how should we go about discussing? Should we all try to finish it by say... mid-July and then start posting on what we found enlightening, interesting, provocative, and stimulating?... Or, shall we post as we are reading? Or, simply have no rules and post away in an impressionistic way? :)Peace,-Michelle
okay i finally got through and figured livejournal out yay! just got the book and hope to open it soon, looks interesting and cant wait to read it! tootles all-stacey
but since Madison won't give me a library card until I get a piece of mail to verify my new address I will have to wait to start it. I might go out and purchase it, but without a job funds are a little tight. Hope to read everyone else's posts though and see what I can look forward to!
( But I haven't gotten farCollapse )
Hi, everyone! Looks like a good book! Ashley, the bartending idea sounds fun! Getting the license would be a plus. It's a busy job, you would always be on your feet and you have to move quickly, but on the plus side, if you get really good and can do fancy stuff with the shaker, you could get good tips. Also, if you get into the catering business, you could make really good tips! It's up to you.Brigid
I've been keeping track of the votes and the voting closed about an hour and a half ago.The Unbearable Lightness of Being will be our first read. Happy reading, everyone!
Hey all, how's it going? This site totally confuses me and considering how Colleen's blog never worked for me I'm curious to see how I do on this one. So i hope everyone's summers are fun so far and I want to vote for Sam's book because it sounds awesome so tally that for me. Also what do you guys think of bartending? And by guys I mean ladies, I'm totally bored and it only takes 2 weeks to get your license. So I don't know that could be a fun job right???
I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post in the community...but I just wanted to make sure that we have invited Gail to join. I'm not sure how to invite people, probably because this is really confusing for me ;) Anyways, just wanted to make sure. I can't wait to get started! ~Megan
