- We eat and drink during meetings, so being on time allows enough time for ordering and chatting and sometimes "warm up" activities such as quiz or a small game
- Read the topic of the month carefully and try to stick to it with your choice of a book. Often there are suggestions in the event description or comments for fitting titles, if you're not sure what to pick.
- We encourage everybody to speak, so be sure to have something to present on a topic - even if you've just started your book, bring it along and tell us what it is. Make us curious about the end :)
