having just moved to Exeter I need to make new friends.....would anyone like to join me for a book club involving meeting once a month in a pub (weatherspoons in town?) to maybe read a book that we all choose or talk about books we've read and drink several glasses of wine, beer etc

Ok, how about a re-schedule.... wednesday at the Pitcher and Piano 7.30pm?

Ksteve0 Mon 03-Sep-12 20:28:14

Hi, I'm in the pub, is anyone coming?

Hi ladies,
I am also a new to Exeter mum (arrived at beginning of June), have a 2 yr old. Love reading and drinking wine....! Not sure I can make next Monday but am certainly interested in meeting and joining in if I may?

How about we meet and talk about what book to read next over a glass or two of wine .... dont wanna rush the wine drinking

Ksteve0 Mon 06-Aug-12 08:36:22

Thanks NMM, I am available 3rd Sep, has a book been agreed or do you just meet up and drink wine!!

jjemma1 Sun 05-Aug-12 19:52:23

No :-( .... no one said it was good/bad for them, so I guesses that people didnt wanna meet up. I dont know if anyone did turn up?

Is that the 3rd sept, should be fine with me x

NMM Fri 03-Aug-12 23:53:13

Jemma did the July meet-up go ahead?

Should we try for first Mon in Sept? Will most people be around then?

Ksteve0 absolutely! Come along - although I should probably warn you that our inaugural meeting was very productive on the wine drinking and chatting front, but not so on the book front!

Hi, I have just moved to Exeter from Richmond with my husband and 14 month old son Elliott..... I have been in a book club for years and am excited about the prospect of joining a new one if you are taking new members?? I see I have just missed a meet up but that will give me time to get on with the next book! KELLY

NMM Wed 11-Jul-12 08:45:22

We're away that week, but don't let that stop you!

jjemma1 Sat 07-Jul-12 19:48:42

NMM Thu 28-Jun-12 19:41:13

Count me in! Shall we actually try to talk about books next time (equally happy to rename it Wine Club though!) grin

jjemma1 Thu 28-Jun-12 14:19:54

Had a lovely time on monday, both boys were sound asleep on when i got home !! What do you thinkabout making it a regular meeting? once a month the last monday of the month?

Cactus76 Thu 21-Jun-12 10:59:45

Hi All,

I briefly introduced myself over on the Exeter mums thread. NMM has kindly suggested that I pop along on Monday too which would be lovely. I just need to sort out some baby feeding logistics.... Hopefully see you all there. I too will carry a book with me (something deeply intellectual, of course) smile

NMM Wed 20-Jun-12 23:24:18

Really looking forward to it too. Don't judge me by my book! - it'll probably be some airport trashy read that I grab on the way out the door <makes mental note to dust off 'War and Peace' over the weekend>...

Elvis44 Wed 20-Jun-12 21:25:29

If u put a book on your table (as eye-catching as possible), I'll also come in carrying a book so you can both look out for me too! I'll just bring a current book so if I can't find you, I'll have something to read while I drink alone!!
Really looking forward to it and meeting you both! Will be the first time I'll have ever introduced myself as Elvis....?! wink

jjemma1 Tue 19-Jun-12 13:35:03

Its a date Monday 25th 7.30 ish - love it
What book shall we bring to look pretty on the table next to the glass of wine?

NMM Tue 19-Jun-12 13:33:34

Elvis - sorry for late reply. We are away with grandparents this week.
Shall I bring a book along and leave it on the table we're at?

Elvis44 Thu 14-Jun-12 08:32:17

Sounds great! Will aim to be there around 745. How will I recognise both of you? wink

NMM Wed 13-Jun-12 23:59:25

Jemma & I met at the NCT group yesterday and we came up with Mon 25th too! How about Wetherspoons on South St? 7.30-8ish?

Elvis44 Wed 13-Jun-12 10:18:54

Ooh I can do after 7 on a Monday in central Exeter too! smile How about Monday 25th? But where? Any suggestions?

jjemma1 Mon 11-Jun-12 19:56:57

Im game
Monday after 7pm in central Exeter is fine with me xx

NMM Mon 11-Jun-12 10:53:21

Let's do it! How about a Monday (DH works away Tue- Thur). Is central Exeter easiest for everyone?

Elvis44 Mon 11-Jun-12 08:37:25

jjemma1 and NMM - shall we start this off? When is good for you and any preferred locations? Can't do Tuesday or Friday evenings but otherwise fairly flexible.... Are we thinking of say meeting for an hour after kids are in bed? Or would something else work better for you?
