[close] Please read before joining! Hello! You just joined a roleplay group for a Police Academy/Detective Academy. You will train to become a detective! To graduate the academy, you will have to uncover secrets. When you are ready, you will be given a riddle that you have to solve! Everyone can share a riddle in a crime scene, so feel free to share! If needed, you will be given clues along the way and will be able to try to figure it out with fellow detectives in training! Basically how it works—saying simply—is that someone chooses a riddle or secret and everyone starts slowly trying to figure out what happened in the crime scene. The key is to not make accusations right away, just ask general 'yes' or 'no' questions. Example: A scuba diver is found dead in the middle of the forest. Question: Was it a accidental death? Answer: Yes.

[close] Hou jij ook van thrillers en detectives? Word dan snel lid van deze groep! Deze groep hanteert het Nederlands als voertaal. Echter kan het best voorkomen dat we Engelstalige boeken lezen. De bedoeling is dat we samen van de 19e tot en met de 23e van de maand boeken gaan nomineren. Daarna komt er een topic waarin aan de hand van een puntensysteem gestemd kan worden, dit kan van de 24e tot en met de 28e. Het boek met de meeste stemmen wint en dit boek lezen we de volgende maand!

[close] This book club is ONLY for books that are WRITTEN VERY WELL and have a GREAT STORY LINE. We ask that each member shelve at least 2 exceptional books that they've read but may shelve as many as they want. I spend a lot of time trying to find those EXCEPTIONAL books and have to wade through many poorly written books to find them. If you have this same problem then join our group and add to our group bookshelf ONLY the books you believe are EXCEPTIONAL. This group can encompass any genre of book, fiction or non fiction. As long as you believe that it is a book someone MUST read before they die. This group is not about getting a lot of members, it's about getting a lot of great books shelved on our bookshelf. That way when your feeling in a reading slump, you can come to this group and find an exceptional book listed on our bookshelf that you know will be written well and have a great story line to it. If you put a book on our bookshelf, please create a shelf for it so other people can easily pick out a book from the particular genre they like. Note to author's: You are all more than welcome to join our group but please do not shelve your own books. You probably wrote a great book but let others say its great. Please only shelve the books (other than yours) that you think are exceptional books.
