Lo and behold, we've already three meetups planned for this month: two in Canada, one in Scotland. If you're anywhere nearby you should definitely swing by to at least one of them! :D


August 8th, 2009 (Saturday this coming weekend!) in Montréal, Canada during the 67th World Science Fiction Convention - Link (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=49929)

of course not ! in august, most parisians are somewhere else. probably they are all planning their holiday travels around the meetups scheduled elsewhere. which means that, in a certain sense, all non-parisian august meetups are in fact parisian meetups. therefore, we've got 3 of them planned this month, so we're still ahead of the game ! better get cracking, texas, you're faaar behind !!

This reminded me of a sentence from the Count of Monte Christo:

those who remain in Paris in July must be true Parisians

Ok, it's July and not August, but it's still in the summer!
