66953 Haven't been here for a while. And so glad about the news, congratulation Christa! Also welcome for the new mods: Angela, Jason, and Rose. Keep the good work here.

I would like to say thanks for the group that still made me one of the mods in here. But since I became so rarely to put any comment and so on, I think it's better to give the chance for any other to be mod. The reason I can't be participate more often like times ago, that I find it difficult to divide my time between my work life as auditor and looking for any chance to read except on the subway, on the street in the traffic jam, before I go to sleep, or even on the toilet.

I'm sorry if I don't keep participate often than I used to be. I still read books, and still interest about anything we discuss in here. So, by now I'll remove my position as mod but I like to be here, in this group. I think Angela will know if there's any volunteer to be mod.

Thanks everyone! Let's read more and more books!

66953 Hello everyone!
So glad to be here again, looking for inspiration among the book (and music) lovers :)

Now I am on a project to write stories about some songs as a part of its promotion. But, it's not to write the meaning of the song, but what's the story behind it. I would like to ask if any of you can tell me where I can publish the stories after it finished? I mean, is there a website or something where I can promote the song, the singer, or even the stories?

About the songs, actually it's not mine. Several days ago, I just helped the artist to write story behind the song (the one with title I'm Your Wonderboy). I would like to share the story here, but it written in my language. So, I think I have to translate it before.

By the way, one of the song has the same title as the book of Guy de Maupassant. And the other song, it's about the floods that hit several major cities in my country a few months ago.

I hope you'll like it. Enjoy!

You can find out the songs in here or
If you like the song, you can find the lyrics in his facebook page

PS: I'm still looking for your opinion, any of you. Thanks!

I had never seen LeBlanc's work beside Arsene Lupin series. Thanks for sharing, Mikiah!

66953 Maybe we don't need to set up a poll for the next month. Seems like we don't have much attention in this month for this Oliver Twist. Let it be our January-February book.

Yes, little bit confuse about that. Besides, I've ever read in some articles that says Jane Eyre is a Victorian Gothic. I, somewhat, agree with it. There are some parts that can describe about Victorian Gothic I think, but I like it as romantic.

66953 I think some books can be classified in the literature on the Romantic Era and at the same time, included in the category of Victorian Gothic. Does that make sense? Correct me if I'm wrong.

66953 Victorian gothic literature which is very memorable for me is Wuthering Heights. I've never read The Picture of Dorian Gray before, but I know its story from some reviews and watch the movie. And Frankenstein also include this victorian gothic, right? But for now, I think I will try to read Wilkie Collins.

66953 Thanks Steve! I'll take a look on that.
How about the other book of him, The Woman in White? Does that count?

66953 anyone, can you recommend me with some of your favorite victorian gothic literature? :)

66953 I read Oliver Twist last year. I got the translation version into my language from a bookfair, but honestly it's a little bit boring. I don't know if it's because the translation that isn't good or I just don't get the feel. I prefer to watch the movie.

Oliver Twist is an interesting story. However, it's got me emotionally when having to feel annoyed for some characters (that really really mess up Oliver's life) in this book at some parts of the story.

66953 It's been very long time since I took a visit here, just because I was accessing Goodreads from android almost along last year. Hello everyone. We're welcome you :)

Yeah, it's time to read classic again. Glad to be here (again).

I agree. For me, it's always worth it to read the classics and have my own opinion. Is it really that bad or is totally good but just not my cup of tea.
For Dickens, I love the movie but haven't read this Oliver Twist before.

Nice choice, Christa! And now, I'm confused. LOL

66953 I like this story but didn't love it. I like the way Steinbeck describe everything on this story. The place and the character of each one of them.
However, I feel bad for Lennie. He's such a good guy.
