Jade aka MrsTosh (mrstosh) Hi all, I am a newbie to this group but not Goodreads thought I would join as you seem to have some great books listed and some challenges that look fun!

message 15: by [deleted user] (new)

I wanted to be in a group with other people who love to read! However, I wanted one that wasn't too big that my voice would get lost!

message 16: by Ash (new)

Ash | 5 comments i loved the name of the group, and was intrigued by the book buddy idea, although at the moment i am rereading my library rather than buying more, but also to discuss books with people who love to read as much as i do!

message 17: by Micky (new)

Micky | 1 comments Hi, my name is Michelle and I'm new to the whole book club thing, and yours seemed so well put together, I couldn't help but join. I am also new to Goodreads. I had been using it for years to find books but I finally made myself a lil account and am now busy tracking down old favorite books and finding new books. I love it and even though some of the features are a little confusing, I think I've found myself a new home for all things books. Right now I'm just looking for fellow bookworms that love to read and I would love to make this the place where I have discussions and fangirl. I've read of over the rules and understand most everything and I know that I'll love it, I already do. I know that this place will also help me make lots of friends and I'm excited for that as well.
So that wraps up why I joined, nice to meet you all!

Lauren (Shakespeare & Whisky) | 44 comments Discussion of books. Noone really discusses books in comments of reviews cause its a bit rude if you dont agree but in a group you can discuss and disagree as much as you want.

I agree! Another reason i joined is that nowadays some people think its a waste of time to discuss a book or debate about a character whereas in this group everyone is interested in books and there are lots of books to talk about and review!

message 20: by Olivia (new)

message 21: by Robyn (new)

Robyn I am 15 books behind my yearly reading goal... I need some motivation! hoping to find some buddies to read with and all the book clubs in my area meet when I am at work. With my schedule, virtual book clubs are the only way to go!

message 22: by J. (new)

J. | 8 comments I wanted to try and meet some other avid readers, see what happened :)

I've also got a bit of an ulterior motive, since I'm a newly self-published author and I'm hoping to spread the word about my teen horror novel The Good Fight (free preview on the Goodreads page!)

The Good Fight by Justin Robinson
