Also, all previous reads threads are in the discussions. They are alphabetized mostly by book title. Just click on discussions on the top right of any group page and they all show up.

I just went through the bookshelf the week before last and hooked all those books up to folders, so that makes me happy that someone noticed/found it useful :)

Ivona any book on our bookshelf is always eligible for nomination, but you may not know that 1984 just won the poll for the June reread. If you like feel free to nominate another choice.

haha! Some of the earliest books do have sparse participation. Membership was smaller then. One reason why the "Revisit the Bookshelf" section was created - so we all, who joined later, could have a chance to read these great titles in a group setting :)

North and South is my revisit nomination, but love the prior suggestions of Rebecca & Gone with the Wind!!

MK (wisny) | 2993 comments Cindy wrote: "Thank you,hope I can add something new to the group"

Me too! *grin*

heh,

On a more serious note, I'm sure you will. Everyone's voice has something to add, and all of it makes the book discussions more interesting. Love to read lots of points of view, see how others read the same thing I just read, get a different take on it, that sort of thing. It's interesting. I hope you enjoy yourself :).
