You can order:
through the following methods:

- by phone 503-227-2807 or email a member of the NWEI Outreach Team (please mention that you're associated with Simplicity Matters), or

NWEI sells all guides for $21* except for SSW ($35). s/h (priority mail): 1-2 books, $6.00; 3-15 books, $12.00.
*On April 1, 2012, the price per book will be $23.
You're allowed -- and encouraged -- to share a book with another circle participant without any additional cost. Also, we sometimes have loaner discussion guides available--please ask the SMEI volunteer introducer.
"Circle Book Person": Someone will volunteer at the introductory meeting to place an order for the discussion guides for the entire group (saves s/h). We suggest that $20 be collected at the intro meeting from each participant who wishes to purchase a guide. The shipping costs can be reimbursed later.
The books will take a few days to arrive (priority mail, shipped once a week from NWEI). Circle participants will need to make arrangements with the Circle Book Person to pick up their discussion guides.
Participants should read Session 1 prior to the first official meeting of the group.
Thus, unless the circle starter has ordered books in advance to resell, there should be a two-week interval before the introductory meeting and the first official meeting (to discuss Session 1).
may wish to schedule a video on week following the introductory meeting, or skip that week. Please talk to your volunteer introducer about possibilities.
