I like Rick's suggestion of meeting at Hastings.  Breathing all the formaldehyde fumes from book and magazine ink always inspires me.  Besides, I just like the ambiance of all those rowed-up books.  Maybe the cafe offers something for Matt to eat.  Hope we can have a good turnout!

And if someone doesn't want to meet at Hastings, speak up!  We all have our opinions.

As for the book situation, Cat Bark -- our intrepid librarian -- has offered to store the books for us until the ALA can take them.  I like that solution.  Rick reports that B&N seemed disorganized about our previous donation.  So we could give the books we have now into Cat's keeping, and then in future we can collect books either for our own pizza drive (writers need brain food!) or people can still specify if they want to donate books to rebuild libraries.

What think you?
