I wish.  I've been unable to find any near me.  I would love to discuss books and have our own little book swap in person.

I belong to the KC, MO chapter. We meet once a month and this will be our 3rd meeting. So far, we've met at the same Panera Bread and had lunch along with our discussions. We've had roughly 6 members each time so far. We plan to set up some meets in the future at a UBS, coffee shop, etc... It's a really relaxed, informal meeting. Mainly just enjoying talking about whatever topic comes up. Anyone in our area is welcome to join us. Next meeting is April 18th, at 1 pm at the Panera Bread in Overland park, KS.

We meet twice a month - once for lunch and once for donuts.  We discuss PBS (some members have had questions on how to do things and we usually have someone who knows the right answer.  We have about 8 in our group, but only about 5 come regularly.  We exchange books among ourselves (usually those that have a gazillion posted) and one member contributes books to the military at Ft. Riley, so we give her lots of books for that.  Have a lot of fun, so if you're in Northeast Kansas (Topeka area) come join us. Pat

Nope, tried to start one in Tampa back in 2010.  A lady volunteered to run it then was out of town for the first meeting so I ran it, then she never picked up the ball.  I moved out of town a few months later after I'd already gotten a cafe to agree to let us meet there once a month.
