Lisa (Lisathisissilly) | 4 comments I'm Lisa and I'm 28- nearly 29 (gosh i feel old now, lol!).

I love cats, am ambivalent about dogs and LOVE spongebob squarepants. I dislike book snobs, food snobs or any kind of snobbery.

I love reading even more than spongebob (sshh, don't tell him!), and I blog about the books I have read at www.beyond-twilight.co.uk

Catherine (cattymccat) Hi all! I'm Cat, I'm 30 years old & live in Sallisaw, Oklahoma. I grew up in Fort Smith, Arkansas (actually, right up until last August) which is only about 30 minutes from here at the most. I was married to my best friend, Richard for four years (together for six, friends for sixteen) & he passed away on November 13th. We have a four year old son named Elijah Scott who means EVERY THING to me. I love to read, my favorite is YA Paranormal/Supernatural. I love writing, video games, music, etc. If you have any more questions, just let me know. XD

Jade | 41 comments Hi! I am 15 years old and going to be 16 in a few days which is exciting! I love to read, and young adult is by far my favorite genre, but sometimes I will read adult books. I hope you guys all like this book club. It may be kind of dull at first since I just started it, but I do hope you end up liking it! I always look for suggestions of any kind! Thanks!

Dylan (dmfriend26) | 9 comments Hi, I'm Dylan, I'm 18 years old and I'm weird. No seriously, anyone that knows my videos will say the same thing. Okay, getting serious now. I love reading, mostly YA, but I also love adult horror, fantasy, and sci-fi novels. I'm also an otaku, meaning I'm obsessed with anime and manga. Currently I'm reading Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles and am LOVING it!!! xD
I also love to write and hope to be published someday. :)

I think that goes for most of the people on here. ^_^

Hello! I should have done this introduction ages ago, but oh well. I'm Jenna, 18, and I love to read, obviously. I have an obsession with Harry Potter, and I'm going to college to study writing and literature, because I want to become an author, and studying literature is just fun anyways.

Cate (The Professional Fangirl) (chaostheory08) *waves*

Hello everyone!

I am Cate, 22 from Pasadena, CA. I love historical fiction, military history, and general fiction. Easy on the YA though.

I have a fledgling book blog: http://readinggoodbooks.wordpress.com where I review, mostly the books that I got from First Reads.

I come armed with a B&N nook but I still love me some physical tomes. =D

My name is Chelley, I am 27 and from NB Canada. I love to try new and different types of books, but I have to say that I have a soft spot for old westerns... Looking forward to some new and interesting reads : )


message 32: by Lucia (last edited Aug 02, 2011 01:36AM) (new)

Lucia Belakova (Luci_Belakova) | 1 comments Hello,
My name is Lucia and I am from Bratislava, Slovakia. My biggest passion is pretty obvious, since I am on Goodreads, and that's books. My favorite genre is Young Adult literature, Sci-fi and Fantasy. If I were to choose three things to take with me on a lonely island, it would be rope, knife and a ultimate survivor guy/book. I have one little and pretty obnoxious brother. I torture him everyday, although I always say I am making him a tougher person. *smirking*
Oh, and books about sparkly vampires bore me to tears, if you want to know. I am more of a badass-ass-kicking-vampires kind of a girl.
Also, if you are interested, my favorite book is The Hunger Games, its almost like an obssession.

message 34: by Simba (new)

Simba My name is Alexandria, but a lot of my friends call me Simba. I love to read, cook, workout, do my nails, etc. I'm a health nut and I love working out/eating right/reading books about those two topics. I'm a sophmore at Syracuse University, with a double major in anthropology and English Textual Studies, and (hopefully) a minor in history. I love reading historical fiction, series, and murder mysteries.

message 36: by David (new)

David Trim Hello all,
My name is David. I have recently started reading a lot. I have picked up and read 16 books this year. I typically read on my nook color because it is easy to travel with. Other than that if you want to know something feel free to ask.

Gretchen (ReadingIsAnArt) | 1 comments Hey, I'm Gretchen and as you may have guessed, I'm just a little book obsessed... Okay! I'm really book obsessed! I love reading and my friends call me boring because of it. Sometimes I feel like a nerd because like no kids read anymore, but I think reading opens your mind to new possibilities! I'm really excited about joining this book club!

Jyoti Arora (jyotiarora) | 3 comments Hi, everyone,

I'm Jyoti Arora from India. I have adored books since early childhood. I actually started reading before I started going to school :)
I've been working as a freelance writer since 2007. As my writing projects, I've abridged about 30 English Classics. Recently, I've also earned myself the title of being called an author of a general fiction book!


message 48: by Katie (new)

Katie (Emkaybee) Hello,

I'm Mary Kathryn, 21-years-old, and I am currently living in Oregon, USA. I refused to learn to read until I was entered into a special class in the third grade (and then I learned it rather fast, I was just being stubborn). Ever since then I have been reading as much as I can get away with.

Currently I am reading the following:

The Instructions by Adam Levin
House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski
Words in Context: A Japanese Perspective on Language and Culture by Takao Suzuki
Tigana by Guy Gavriel Kay (November Fantasy Book Club Read)
Quicksilver by Neal Stephenson
Bulfinch's Mythology by Thomas Bulfinch
