Claire | 30 comments Hi all, despite the fact I already have way too many books to read, and not enought time to read, I thought I'd join a group that's going to give me so much more for the to-read pile.

I'm Claire from Australia and keen to get involved in the group. I'll read anything from classics, to modern lit, to history and some trashy chick-lit thrown in the mix.

Laura (apenandzen) Welcome Claire - we have a few other Australians here as well! It's a great group, you'll be glad you joined. And you'll never run out of reading material!

Hi Claire. Welcome to the group!
(Since you dont have a profile picture, I am going to be honest with you and admit that I am picturing you as Claire from LOST, she was from austrialia... )

SOrry! Cant help myself!


message 4: by Laura (new)

Laura (apenandzen) And I'm picturing you as Claire from Outlander, which is a book a bunch of us are reading as a group at the moment.

*even tho I have NO idea what Claire looks like, you understand*

<<< slinks back into obscurity >>>

Claire | 30 comments Ha ha - I'll live with looking like Claire from Lost then :)

Haven't come across too many books with a Claire in it yet... Is she nice in Outlander?

Anyhow, I'm battling with the 3 books on my bedside table at the moment, but hoping to get onto Love in the time of Cholera this month. It's been in the to-read pile for an age!


message 6: by Laura (new)

Laura (apenandzen) She's the main character who is married at the outset, accidentally time travels and falls in love 200 years in the past with another man. But a surprisingly good read tho!

Hayes (hayes13) Hi Claire, welcome!!


message 8: by Fiona (new)

Fiona (bookcoop) Hi Claire! You've already met a few of the crazies I see. We're all a little book-mad-addicted here. I'm currently trying to cure my addiction by NOT buying any more books until I have got my to-be-read pile down. It's still residing at 280 and never seems to get any better!

So, welcome to the mad house. You're to-read pile and your to-get pile will grow massively out of control here. Before TNBBC I never really had a to-get pile, maybe for one or two books but now my to-get pile is in it' hundreds. What it's going to look like after my book-ban though I dunno.
