I hope everyone had a good new year; because of the holidays, most voted to hold the Feb. get together on Saturday February 11th at 9:30 am as usual.
However, we will have a new venue: it will be at Swensen's on Keelung Road. UPDATE: in Taipei. The address is 81 Keelung Rd. Sec. 2. (phone there is 2735-3696) For those unfamiliar with the area, it is between HoPing East Road and Hsin Yi East Road on the east side of the street.
If you come from Hsin Yi Road, it is about 2 blocks south. Go past Fridays, if you get to McDonald's you have gone too far. If you come from HoPing Road, it is about 4 blocks north, go past McDonalds and if you get to Fridays, you also have gone too far. For those who know the area, it is quite near where KuangFu South Road runs into Keelung Rd. and also where the Tong Hua Night Market dead ends into Keelung Rd.
They have a back room there which will suit us well, so be there at 9:30 am and we will see you.
Also, topics will be free flowing, but since so many brought up interesting books, that will be one area for discussion. This time bring the title of what you feel are the two most interesting books (fiction or non fiction) that have influenced your life and why.
I would like to make a list of these books so would ask all to mail me what those two books are plus a line or two on why you found them so interesting and influential in your life. I will compile the list and make copies for everyone. This will I believe help each to get to know the personalities, interests etc. of members as well as give us all a list of interesting books that we may want to look into.
Look to see you all then.
PS I guess I should mention that Al's or Jukes was sold and that is why we are not meeting there--Al sold it for personal reasons--not because we were too rowdy or poor tippers. (just joking). It was a loss of a good watering hole for many of us.
