|Because really who has time to read|
during the week?
Our group meets 6 times a year. Its every other 3rd Tuesday of the month (January, March, May, July, September, November). Meetings start at 5pm and can run until 8pm or 9pm. In July we have a potluck meeting that start at 11am. Usually that is our big wrap it up before the school year and make other organizational decisions meeting (sadly, I already know I cannot attend this year's potluck since we do our storytimes on Tuesday). We currently meet at a local public library's community room. Each person has a stack of books ranging from 3-12 or even more sometimes. If its a kids book you give a super quick review, love it or hate it then we move on. Tween and teen fiction gets a bit more time but with so much to cover we still try to limit reviews to a minute. Sometimes if you get to verbose we have a nominated time keeper with a klaxon on their phone to help you wrap things up. This can be really tough when a book is amazing and you want to savor it again or its so bad you just cannot stop highlighting all the ways it failed.
