Blujbird Twig | 12 comments This is great news! When are we going to celebrate with a drink?

Lori (tnbbc) | 9817 comments Mod
I say that the next person who hits the bar in celebration will be required to drink 100 beers in honor of this group! Gee--- how many of us do you think would be laid up in the ER for alcohol poisoning??!!

Well, it took a little while, but we are growing into quite the group arent we?

Congratulations Next Best Book Club, We hit 200 members! Another Milestone for us!

Although, I would really like to say that I dont believe its the size of the group that matters all that much, its all the wonderful interaction and support we give one other. I cant go a whole day wtihout checking in with everyone to see what new books you've splurged on, or what interesting new novels you are currently reading..... So I want to thank everyone for their active participation...

And I know we have a few 'silent' members out there who have yet to post and join in on the threads, and I would really like to extend an invitation to them... Please dont be shy! Speak up, share your favorite authors and novels with us, and weigh in on the great discussions we have here. You're missing out on the best part of being a member here! We dont bite (well, unless you are Andy Freeman, the serial book poster who abuses our threads (as well as every other groups threads out there)!!

Thanks again everyone for making this such a great group! And I look foward to everyones continuing input and feedback....

Happy reading!

Lorena (lorenalilian) LOL, so now what? 200 beers? I'll make a toast with a glass of wine at dinner tonight! It has been great getting to know all of you.

Alrighty.... 300 is something to celebrate!
So many new people, so many new novels to share, so many new ideas to discuss....

And such a happy little community we have been growing!

Thank you to everyone for your support and continued input!

Happy Reading!!!
(and yes, Lorena, that means 300 beers! Whose hosting the big bash?) haa haa haa

message 16: by Mona (new)

Mona | 52 comments YEAH! I love this group too!!! Thanks to everyone, especially to you Lori! :)


message 17: by Emma (new)

Emma  Blue (litlover) | 2396 comments Lori, your groups have introduced me to a GR obsession, and I love it! Thank you so much!

(Blushes madly)

Awww. shucks you guys. It really isnt me! I swear.. its all of you....

But I guess that It helps that Im totally addicted to this site too and am determined to keep this site cool and active :)


message 19: by Emma (last edited Jun 09, 2008 01:18PM) (new)

Emma  Blue (litlover) | 2396 comments lol, of course! My group is so much more active now because I've added some fun and games (which I learned from here), not to mention the roleplay, which got an amazing turn out, and I wouldn't have been this active if it wasn't for finding out about the Lost group and this group. It's all connected!! Thank you!


(Now I will shut up and let you continue with your wonderful group, oh man, I'm doing it again!)

ScottK | 536 comments YAY !!!



message 21: by Cynthia (new)

Cynthia (pandoraphoebesmom) | 1826 comments This is definitely my favorite Goodreads group. I am so glad I discovered this site. It is so much fun!


message 22: by Jen (new)

Jen | 278 comments Yah, what everybody else said! It has gotten to the point where I think of you all as my friends. I've even considered starting a post of non-book items (gasp!) - just a "what's going on" thread...you know, find out if Joanie's little one started sleeping any better, how Blujbird's son is doing, etc. It's funny how you can bond with people you've never encountered face-to-face.


message 23: by Emma (new)

Emma  Blue (litlover) | 2396 comments It's wonderful, just to talk about things no one else in your world cares about.


message 24: by Mandy (new)

Mandy Jen, I think that's a great idea, you should go ahead and do it.


message 25: by Sherry (new)

Sherry Jen,I have had the same thought and have wondered the same things but have thought this wasn't the right place to ask.I would definately join should such a space be created.I to feel a bond with so many of the members and would love a format to develop that further.


message 26: by Emma (new)

Emma  Blue (litlover) | 2396 comments Couldn't we ask Lori to create a Pointless folder?


message 27: by Sherry (new)

Sherry With Lori's brilliance as a moderator I feel sure she's probably already figuring how to do it.


message 28: by Jen (new)

Jen | 278 comments Good idea on the pointless folder! Lori, would that be OK?


message 29: by Holli (new)

Holli The pointless folder would be wonderful!! I'm new to this group but I saw that some of your members are members of my other groups so i thought I'd peek in here and see how this one is!! The girls in my Chicks on Lit group have become great friends of mine and we enjoy talking about everything in that group. Seems as if all the threads we start about books turn into threads about something else and it works out great for us! I feel as if I'm truly getting to know these wonderful ladies and consider them more helpful than some of the friends I see all of the time!! LOL


message 30: by Lori, Super Mod (new)

Lori (tnbbc) | 9817 comments Mod
Wow, I go to sleep for a few hours and everyone comes up with a great idea..... Gessh! And the whole time i was awake, no one was on.... (Should I be taking that as a hint?) ha ha ha

Just kidding.

Ok everyone!
I created a folder called Pointless Stuff :D
And I slapped up a little post to make it visible. I think this is a great idea. We have all bonded on so many different levels, books being the thing that has brought most of us together, so it really does make sense to continue that bonding into other aspects of peoples lives....

Have at it group!
And happy Tuesday... Its gorgeous out!

Hi everyone...
Just posting real quick to say..
Holey Cow..
We are growing so quickly over these past few days. I feel as tho I just cannot keep track of all the newbies! I am loving it!

Welcome to everyone who has recently joined. I am really happy to see that you are all posting and joining in on the conversations.... What a great group we are building here.

I look foward to sharing all the new insight on novels you have currently been reading, or have finished reading, or are just DYING to read!

375 and going strong...... Who would have thought?!

And thanks to all my old-timers ( you know who you are!) for holding us together with your continual love and support... This site would be nothing if not for you!!!

Group Hug Everyone!!!


message 32: by Val (new)

Val (valz) | 367 comments 375-- I don't feel a day over 300-- except when I stay up really late reading goodreads!


message 33: by Charity (new)

Charity (charityross) Oh my! 3 'til 400!!


message 34: by Sherry (new)

Sherry Sigh!..It seems just yesterday when we were a mere 386.My how time and our numbers seem to fly!


message 35: by Charity (new)

Charity (charityross) Now we're at 398...wow!


message 36: by Lori, Super Mod (new)

Lori (tnbbc) | 9817 comments Mod
Hey everyone.
We broke the 400 mark! And in only a matter of days it seems. This is getting totally out of control. What have we done any differently lately? Im going to have set more places at the dinner table!!! haa haa

If I didnt feel the pressure to check in with goodreads every couple of hours before, now its ten times worse... If Im gone an hour, I have 100 posts I feel the need to catch up on.. ahhhh....

Great to have you all with me, and im just joking about the stress! But where the hell am I gonna find time to read now???


message 37: by Lori, Super Mod (new)

Lori (tnbbc) | 9817 comments Mod
Haa haa. Checking every post is soo time consuming, but I am terrified of missing all the good stuff. So I dilegently work my way from top to bottom... I get so aggriavated when im like half way down the folders, and a new post pops up in a folder Ive already checked.. haa haa... When will the madness stop!!!

I must say, tho, we seem to be one of THE most active groups on here. We dont seem to go more than an hour or two without someone somewhere posting something.. that is just too awesome for words!


message 38: by Lorena (new)

Lorena (lorenalilian) **LOL** Kirsty, I feel the same, its taking me twice as long to read my books now because I NEED to know what is going on here all the time. Its nice to have new friends though.


message 39: by Tisha (new)

Tisha SAme here!! I was just telling my brother if I spent as much time reading lately as i do on this site, I would have twice as much read! :)

I have to log on multiple times a day so i dont get behind on the posts! Its like an OCD thing for me. I have to clear all of the red new post alerts out.


message 40: by Kirsty (new)

Kirsty (kirstybooks) | 618 comments hehe, Tisha... I totally get you. I love how we can all be OCDish book licking, bookstore smelling, post checking freaks together!


message 41: by Sherry (new)

Sherry I find myself resenting when real life intrudes.I had a visitor this morning who didn't leave until lunch and then several phonecalls plus well the whole having to eat thing and all I can think was I missing my time on TNBBC and when I'm able to there's going to be dozens of posts to read through!It'll take so long to catch up and I was right.

Congrats on our numbers though.I'm glad for all the members that are infusing more enthusiasm into the group and keeping it such a fun and interesting place to visit.


message 42: by Emma (new)

Emma  Blue (litlover) | 2396 comments Wow I can't believe how many people have joined! Amazing!


message 43: by Chloe (new)

Chloe (countessofblooms) | 1129 comments Sherry, I feel you. I've actually had to do work today and it's put a serious cramp in my Goodreads habit. I still feel like I'm catching up.


message 44: by Mandy (new)

Mandy Wowee!!

Well I am logged on to Goodreads all day at work and whenever I feel like a quick break I check for new posts, which is quite regularly. Okay, sometimes I don't post straightaway but I do need to know what's going on and then on the flipside sometimes I think I'm having a quick break and then realise oh bugger, it's been longer and I had better do some work. I just love when there are new posts, especially when I log on first thing in the morning, I sit at my computer with my coffee or juice and toast and work my way through.

This is such a great group with really fantastic people and I thank you all for bringing some additional light to my life!!


message 45: by Katie (new)

Katie (hockeygoddess) | 257 comments I just got my friend Caryn to join Goodreads(and our group...I wonder if she was our 400th member!) because she's been listening to me rave about our group for weeks! Not only does she have to listen to me at work, but I also have a bad habit of leaving her hanging on IM because I'm busy on here catching up on reading your posts! *L*

Yay Lori & yay group! I LOVE you guys!!!


message 46: by Lori, Super Mod (new)

Lori (tnbbc) | 9817 comments Mod
Did you know that even tho we have over 400 members, 213 (at last count) are SILENT members?

tsk tsk tsk...

How can you be a member and not want to particpate with us????

I say we should all call out to those silent members and beg them to join us. Discuss with us, share with us.....

What do you think???


message 47: by Mandy (new)

Mandy I concur, Lori!!


message 48: by Sherry (new)

Sherry That's a lot of people who's feedback and recommendations we are missing out on.Can you imagine what our TR shelves may look like if all were sharing?It boggles the mind!


message 49: by Lorena (new)

Lorena (lorenalilian) Well, I don't know if I need any more recommendations at this point, I just read the Urban Fantasy thread and added a bunch of books to my list ***LOL***

Guys ... looking (reading in this case) is fun but participating is so much better!!!!


message 50: by Beth (new)

Beth Knight (zazaknittycat) | 502 comments I know, I know. I'm one of the "silent" members. Sorry!!! I'm a little shy but I'll make more of an effort.


Beth
