Dear members,

Tuesday, October 28, 2008

We want to get to know you! Here are a few questions to help us get better acquainted.

1. What is your favorite genre?

2. Do you have an all-time favorite book? What is it, and why do you love it?

3. Is there a book that you read during your youth that has stayed with you into your adult years?

4. What do you look for in a book?

I'll start things off.

1. I love reading fantasy and science fiction, but I'll read almost anything, if it's well written.

If I had to choose just one it would have to be Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, a book about what might happen if people stopped reading. Bradbury has a beautiful style, his writing is very poetic.

3. Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher. I read it when I was 10 years old, and it was the first book to make me cry. It also started my love affair with dragons and the fantasy genre.

4. The most important thing, to me, are the characters. If the characters aren't believable and understandable then the whole book falls on its face, no matter how great and original the plot is.

Now it's your turn.

Hi, just checking if I can make posts...
Ok yep, it looks like I can post. However Mellissa, I can't do anything else besides make posts, so, I can't add members or anything. Can we try to fix that so I can add Megan?

lets get things started!

All right, everybody, this is how things are going to work:
Each member is going to have a chance to choose which book we read. When it is your turn to choose you will email one of our Admins ( me or Ashlie) with 3 book titles and some information about each book. A link to somewhere like B&N or Amazon will do just fine. We will then put up a poll and each member can vote on which of those 3 books they would most like to read. We will vote for a new book every month.There will be information posted here about the selected book each month, as well as study guides (when available) and other fun stuff. Check back often, I will try to keep this page well updated. I have also set up a forum for easy book discussion, which is located at
Now. I will start things off for November, after which we will go down our member list alphabetically.

My 3 picks for November:

The Memory Keeper's Daughter - by Kim Edwards

Watership Down - By Richard Adams

The Human Stain - By Philip Roth

I have already read Watership Down, but I would like to read it again. The other two are books that I have been meaning to read for a while, and just never gotten around to. Anyway. Go! Vote! And invite other people to join our little club, as well, or else we are going to be a bit lacking in the book discussion department.
