message 34: by jaxnsmom (new)

jaxnsmom | 8146 comments Welcome to our newest members!

Mary Alice! What part of Virginia are you in? I grew up in Lynchburg and lived in many other areas.

Hi Brie! We have a lot of fun reading here, but it's not always relaxing - it's stressful trying to read and chat at the same time! But having fun reading is our most important goal.

Hi Lisa! We read a great variety of books, so you're sure to find some new favorites.


message 35: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (JaMaSc) | 29885 comments To all our newcomers... I have just posted our 2013 year long challenge. Check it out here.

message 37: by Mary Alice (new)

Mary Alice (mae8590) | 39 comments jaxnsmom- hi! I actually live an hour and a half away from Lynchburg in south western VA. horrible little place lol bit hopefully I'm moving to Richmond or Williamsburg soon :)


message 38: by jaxnsmom (new)

jaxnsmom | 8146 comments Gaeta - I spent too many years in the Fairfax area, from Annandale to Alexandria to Arlandria to Seven Corners to Falls Church to Vienna to Merrifield. I then went beyond Pucellville to Winchester. There's a pick your own orchard in Purcellville that had the best white peaches! Also apples, peaches and a variety of berries, and a very strange woman working there :) Charlottesville isn't that far from Lynchburg, I used to visit a friend who was taking some classes at UVA.


message 39: by Ada (new)

Ada Bonnefoi (AdaBonnefoi) | 27 comments Hi everybody,

I am Ada. No idea what I am getting myself into with joining the group but it sure looks like fun. I am 22, originally from Malta but I have relocated myself to Oslo, Norway a year ago where I am living now. Actually I got here first working as an au-pair, and stayed. Now I am trying to decide what to do with my life lol Probably studying, no idea honestly. At first I need to polish my Norwegian, my language skills still suck.

I have made my Goodreads account yesterday, and I kid you not, after five minutes I had already my first message in my inbox. The first friend-request did not take much longer. Some guys are sure fast trying to pick up girls here :D

I read a wide range of books and I think I am open-minded enough not to dismiss anything, except Twilight, Harry Potter & 50 Shades of Grey. Now you can throw stones at me, bah. But what my taste in literature is exactly is anybody´s guess lol


message 40: by Judy (new)

Judy (patchworkcat) | 5750 comments Welcome, Ada. Have you checked out our Group Calendar? We are getting ready to launch into a yearly challenge beginning January 1st. You can read about it here.

Since you are discovering what you want to read you may enjoy our Monthly Group Theme Reads helpful. We also have a monthly challenge coming up January 1st where you pick a book to fit the criteria.

Like you so aptly noted, we have a lot of fun around here. I'm glad you are joining us!


message 41: by Rusalka, Moderator (new)

Rusalka (Rusalkii) | 13001 comments Welcome Ada! I'm slightly confused as I just posted a Norwegian link and then your message popped up... spooky! Huge change from Malta to Oslo but hopefully it suits you well (am very jealous as Norway has always been on my "to visit" list, it's just on the opposite end of the world to me).

It's amazing what happens on all social media sites with inboxes and messages, but here's hoping you enjoy this group as much as we do.


message 42: by Ada (new)

Ada Bonnefoi (AdaBonnefoi) | 27 comments Thanks Judy, I have not see the threads yet but I will take a look for sure. Seems like I have joined at the right time, with Jan 1st so close and spanking brand new challenges to join and participate in the group.


message 43: by Ada (new)

Ada Bonnefoi (AdaBonnefoi) | 27 comments Rusalka, haha, yes Norway is something like the other side of the world to my home country as well. And the climate sucks, I can tell you that much. It´s freezing cold over here but otherwise I love being in Oslo :)


message 44: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (JaMaSc) | 29885 comments Hi Ada! Welcome to the group. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.


message 45: by jaxnsmom (new)

jaxnsmom | 8146 comments Welcome to the group Ada! I'm glad you decided to join us. You'll definitely find a variety of books to read, and a lot of fun.


message 46: by AmyK (new)

AmyK (Yakyma) | 1014 comments Hi Ada! Welcome to the group. I haven't seen many stones being thrown around here lately so you should be safe!


message 47: by Ada (new)

Ada Bonnefoi (AdaBonnefoi) | 27 comments Being late a bit, sorry, but thanks alot for all the lovely and warm welcoming comments. I truly enjoy being here :)

Amy, I do, I do, lots of lovely people here in the group and it is alot of fun to be a part of it. At least I hope I didnt annoy anyone already with my comments :D


message 48: by Judy (new)

Judy (patchworkcat) | 5750 comments We're glad to have you Ada, and are glad that you have jumped right in and have begun participating in the events. :-)


message 49: by Shannon (new)

Shannon Hi! I'm Shannon from NY. I've never been in a book club before but it looks like a lot of fun. :) I'm a book junkie; I always have one in hand. I'm looking forward to the challenges!


message 50: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (JaMaSc) | 29885 comments Hi Shannon! Welcome to You'll Love This One. You are just in time to start the year long challenge for 2013. The January challenge has also been announced. It's always great to have another book junkie join us.
