“Where does a story truly begin? In life, there are seldom clear-cut beginnings, those moments when we can, in looking back, say that everything started. Yet there are moments when fate intersects with our daily lives, setting in motion a sequence of events whose outcome we could never have foreseen.”

We are quite relaxed and have very few rules. Here's the deal: I tried some other groups here at GoodReads but either I didn't like the vibe, or their rules (some groups kick you out for not participating enough!) or didn't feel welcome and comfortable. So I decided to try to get a group of my own going. And here we are 6 years later! This is a fun, social, no-pressure group and I hope you enjoy being part of it.
This is a casual and laid back group of friendly, easy-going women readers with a variety of tastes.
Each month there are usually three categories to choose from. Sometimes we have polls to vote on books, authors, topics, etc. You can read one of the books for the month, or all of them, or none.
An ongoing feature we have is a "Member's Choice" read for the month.
It's been fun to: read the same book; discuss it as we go; challenge ourselves to read books we may not have otherwise chosen; and of course, expand our "to-read" lists as we hear about books from other members.
I always welcome input and suggestions.
Who is this group NOT for? only a select few: men; MEAN GIRLS; authors who are self-promoting, and women who try to come off as super scholars, and try to put down other group members for not being nearly as intelligent or worldly as they are, this is not English class.
Effective 2.1.13, we will no longer promote author's or member's books. Please do not ask me. There are plenty of other groups for that so please do not do that here. However, if you are an author who wants to join a great group of readers, without pushing your own works, please do join us!
Please do not start a new discussion unless you have contacted me and I have given you the OK. The exception to this of course, is under the Buddy Reads folder.

Goodreads - The Filipino Group (GR-TFG) We're Filipinos who love to read anything we get our hands on, and who love to meet to discuss these things weGoodreads - The Filipino Group (GR-TFG)
We're Filipinos who love to read anything we get our hands on, and who love to meet to discuss these things we read. GR-TFG has been around the web since 2009, and started monthly face to face book discussions (F2F / F2FBD) in 2012. Members of the group range from all ages and come from all places, but we all come together for the love of the written word. We love making friends as much as we love reading and hoarding books, and you will definitely find a kindred spirit in the group once you attend your first meet-up. :)
So if you're a Filipino and you love to read --whether it's local, chick lit, romance, science fiction, fantasy, young adult, classics, general or literary fiction novels -- you are very welcome here! :) We do require you to enjoy books and reading when you join this group, but that's only because we can talk book for hours and we don't want you to feel out of place. Do drop by, say hi and show up on any of our face to face events -- we would love to get to know you. :)
P.S. Most of our discussions happen on Goodreads, but also have a Facebook group! :)...more
