Windsor Book Club!

This week, something else happened that was out of the norm, for me.  No, it has nothing to do with what I wrote about in yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry!

If you've been reading LwL for a while, you'll be aware that I am a member of Windsor Book Club (WBC), on Facebook (FB).  WBC began on FB, when the adult son S, of a couple I worship with at my church, decided to create the club as a FB page.

Once every month, since the birth of WBC last year, we have met at various locations.  The dates of our meetings have changed from time to time, as have our meeting locations. 

Looking back, I can recall meeting S, along with a couple of other people, for the first meeting of this club.  It's amazing how much this group has grown.  We now have 161 members! 

No.  Everyone does not attend each meeting.  If this were to happen, we'd need a hall, not a coffee shop!

However, due to the large numbers of people not only becoming members on the FB page, but attending each monthly meeting, S decided to change things around this month.  There were two (2) meetings scheduled.  This way, members and people interested in joining the group, could either meet on a Monday evening, or a Friday evening.

On Monday, January 16th, I attended the Monday evening meeting.  We met at the Green Bean Cafe.  Here's a link:  http://www.greenbeancoffee.info/
As you can see, the cafe is housed on the lower level of a church, near the University of Windsor (U of W). 

In fact, this is the very same church my friends M & D worship at.  The one where I attended a rather modern version of a play, about the birth of my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, around Christmas time.

Being the first (1st) time our group had a choice of two (2) meetings, I believe that some people may have forgotten.  In any case, we had just more than a handful of people attend on last Monday's meeting. 

We all sat around one table, discussing the book we had read.  Actually, I previously wrote an entry regarding our book of the month; if you haven't read that particular entry you may want to do so. 

The book was entitled, Night.  Here is a  LINK to the entry I wrote about the book.

With our group being small in comparison to our last meeting, where the group was so large that we could hardly hear anyone seated a distance away, we had much to discuss.  And, did so, easily.

I must continue discussing this, tomorrow.  Please stay with me!


Until next time...
