Reminder September 11 Meeting

Just a reminder that we meet next Tuesday, Sept 11, at Chris' house. Our book is Positively Fifth Street by James McManus. Let us all remember, as we work our way thru Mr. McManus' insufferable, er, innumerable insights into the world of poker/murder/poker/murder (gosh, which theme is more exciting?), that we eagerly accepted Chris' book recommendation in reaction to the tedium of Oscar & Lucinda. So, no buyer's remorse.

Here are some discussion points for Sept 11:

1. Henceforth, should we abandon our book selection criteria in favor of a book list founded on "True Crime All the Time"?
2. Just how much did our poker skills improve upon reading this book (and, for extra credit, is this why we joined a book club?)
3. For those who were made miserable by having to read this book...is it because of the book choice or the fact that they CAN'T play poker?

With these and other weighty issues up for discussion, I can't wait to return from Cleveland and see you fine men!
