Susan Chancey Hi I'm new to the site and looking forward to lots of good reading. I'm not sure how the site works, could someone please explain how it works. Looking forward to meeting new friends with similar reading interest, love reading nonfiction true crime, can't get enough. Any suggestions on some good reads.


message 2: by Nina (new)

Nina Phunsta Hello Susan and welcome to the club ! I believe the best way to proceed is to play around with the various options, a more "hands on" procedure, but you will enjoy I'm sure !

Thanks so much Nina, would love to have you as a friend. Can I read the book or books selected on the site and if so, how?


message 4: by Nina (new)

Nina Phunsta Hi, Susan. That would be lovely ! You have to have your own copy of the book (physical or digital) to read and thereby make comments. This site is based around observations/feedback/commentary, but does provide the books themselves. :-)
