We are a peace loving group and would like to stay that way!

Are you willing to kiss all your spare cash goodbye? Are you easily distracted by independent bookshops, big name book stores, and library or used book sales? Are your bookshelves currently a little tight of space?
Joining this group is highly addictive. In a matter of weeks, your TBR list will be longer than you are tall, you will be wondering how the heck you walked into a bookstore for one little book, and walked out with two bags crammed full of new novels you never knew you wanted. Your bookshelves will be bursting at the seams and you wont remember what color the rug was as it will be buried under all the new purchases you have made!
We are not here to hold you back, or pat your hand as you try to be strong and cut back on your purchases. We will be rallying behind you, chanting your name as you enter the bookstore, and we will throw a book-party in your honor when you come back and share all the wonderful new books youve adopted with us!
I would love for you to follow TNBBC on Facebook and Twitter!!! And be sure to check out book reviews and special indie series and spotlights on TheNextBestBookBlog.blogspot.com.

No romantic melodrama books please. Want to gush about this great Victorian-era romance novel you've discovered and had been smitten with? Not the right group for you.
We encourage freedom of opinion on books and authors in this group. As long as the opinion is respectful and harmless and breaks no Group rules. Don't feel you can't be honest about a book or author. No matter how popular the book or author is.
Our Group Motto, courtesy of George S. Patton, is:
If everybody is thinking alike, then somebody isn't thinking. ...more
