Book club

It's not Mueller, but it is close by.

One of our neighbors over in the Pecan Springs Neighborhood hosts a book club that meets at the University Hills Public library.

Ame Shillington is the host and she does a great job of moderating the meetings and at taking requests for books to be read by the group.

It is called the Austin Public Library University Hills Branch Book Club and meets from 7:30 to 8:30 pm every 2nd Thursday of the month.

The library is located at 4721 Loyola Lane. Their phone # is 929-0551.

Hopefully this link will get you to the book club's yahoo group.

Mueller's 1st book club?

I've been thinking it would be fun to start a small group book club - maybe one evening a month, just casual maybe with wine or coffee rotating houses, and no judgment if you haven't read the whole book! Anyone else interested? I'm most interested in fiction but would be interested in history or political nonfiction occasionally too - send me a PM or reply if you are interested. I don't really have any books in mind & need book suggestions ...

I think this is a great idea! I desperately want to read something not required for school and hanging out with community folks is an added bonus.

Thanks for all the interest. So far I have 8 of us interested - so I'll just jump in and host the first one, Tues., Oct. 28th, 8:30pm at my house. I"ll have a dessert, coffee, and wine, very casual. How about the host picks the book...
so Oct. 28th's group will be on The Other Boleyn Girl, by Philippa Gregory. I think we should pick a certain day every month, perhaps 3rd Tuesday -- any preferences? I thought the group could kind of get organized on Oct. 28th and decide on a permanent meeting time.

I also created a Group on the site -- any ideas how people can join the group? Or how we create an email list for the book group?

other ideas I'll throw out there --
A Thousand Splendid Suns, Khaled Hosseini (comes out in paperback Nov. 25)
Texas Book Festival authors - http://www.texasbookfestival.org/Calendar.php
Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert
Hot, Flat & Crowded about energy-Thomas Friedman or historical/political biography like John Adams by David McCullough

If anyone wants to host in Nov. and on feel free to jump in with your book selection.

Melanie
