The "Sometimes on Thursdays" book group

We meet irregularly. We have a general list that goes a couple of months ahead, but we often change that. We have read all styles and even had the chance to review and comment on a draft by an author and then he came to our meeting and listened to our comments. We have kids and soccer and sports and husbands and jobs, but try to read for an outlet and meet to keep our friendships in touch.
