[close] Whether you have no idea what to read, have run out of books to read, want to read books of a specific type, want to read books of a non-specific type, or just bored because no one will listen to you rant about the books you've read, this book club will solve all those problems and more! (insert cheerful advertisement music here) There are many different book clubs in this group, eg. Nonfiction, Fantasy, Plays, and so on, although most will probably be more YA-centric because, well I'm a teen :D You can join as many different book clubs as you like here, and you don't have to be an active member to participate in discussions. Anyone can leave, anyone can join, any book club, at any time. The rules are very relaxed (actually I don't think there are any) and you can suggest new things to add to the club at any time by contacting me. Each month a new book that's appropriate for your book club is picked. It is then discussed by the readers in the forums. Then the following month, another book is picked, and so on. Please note this is not a roleplay group!! It's for discussing, reviewing, recommending books, and socializing with others ONLY.
