Book / Movie Release and Club Meeting Calendar; Blog Site Name

Hey Y'all!

Just figured out how to add a calendar to the blog!  The downside is that the source for the embeded calendar is coming from my Google Calendar account.  What this means is that y'all will not be able to make additions or changes to it ('til I figure out another way).  So if you want something added to the calendar, just email me or message me on facebook with the pertinent information and I'll add it.  I've already added several highly anticipated (by me) book and movie releases!

This morning, I discussed with Brandi, setting a recurring hard meeting date so we can plan our schedules around it.  Our thought was that if someone has something going on or can't help but schedule something on a meeting date, we can change it up as necessary, but if we don't have a target date, there will be no urgency to get the book read.  This way we can make it a priority and plan for it.

Due to the 14 hour  difference between those of us Stateside and those of us in Okinawa, I would propose that we make the meeting date the first Friday / Saturday of every month at around 7:00p.m. (U.S.) / 9:00a.m. (Okinawa).  It would probably be best to discuss this in the comments below so that everyone can see, but also feel free to call me, email me, or facebook me, and I'll pass out the info to the others.

Finally, Christine and Kayla thought we might choose a different name for the blog by combining words from each of the titles of our favorite books.  I thought that was an interesting proposition.  We can certainly give it a shot.  So post the title of your favorite book in the comments below so we know the pool of words we are working with (note: If everyone is going to post The Lord of the Rings, our pool of words is gonna be pretty small, so just assume those are also words we can incorporate into the blog name!)

  2. Wow, pretty tough for me to come up with a favorite book. I read so many series and the books tend to bleed together. I'm going to go with Clan of the Cavebear, but I'm not sure it's my favorite book ever.

  6. Still need to have Courtney and Brandi's input on their favorite books, but I would modify the above to: The Fellowship of the Black Cavebear Stand for Changes in 80 Days.

  7. It is also very hard for me to choose a favorite book, but as of right now, I would go with The Hunger Games.

  8. Brandi says, "not sure if I have a favorite book, but if I had to choose it would be Pride and Prejudice or The Poisonwood Bible."
