message 19: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca | 68 comments Hi everyone! I'm new to the groups. I've been wanting something to make reading more interesting. I'm a knitter and crocheter (fiber enthusiast) and I find myself at knit group when they talk about things wishing we could talk about books and having no one to talk to! So I found myself searching for book clubs late one night and here I am.


message 20: by Chris (new)

Chris Hample | 2 comments Hi all! I joined the group yesterday. Live in Austin, TX and was a voracious reader growing up but sort of let the busyness of life distract me over the years. Really looking forward to a renewed focus and self-permission to take the time to read a lot more.

Thanks for taking the time and energy to putting together such a group!

Chris


message 21: by Cherie (new)

Cherie (crobins0) | 20272 comments Hi Rebecca and Chris. Welcome to the group.

Rebecca - there are many knitters and crocheters in the group. We have a thread for "what you have made" to show off our creations. I think we have all been pretty busy reading, because I have not seen any recent updates. We are all busy with the start of our Yearly Challenge books.

Chris - welcome back to reading. Feel free to look around at our challenges and check out the thread posts.


message 22: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 49982 comments Welcome Rebecca & Chris.

I'm a bit of a fibre enthusiast myself, Rebecca. I quilt.

Chris, we'll give you permission to read as well. In fact, we'll enable you. :)


message 23: by Peggy, Moderator (new)

Peggy (pebbles84) | 15384 comments Welcome both!

@Rebecca: I crochet too, although not so much anymore lately. I'd love to see some of your creations!

@Chris: I also read a lot as a kid, then at some point it got less and less. Probably because of required reading at high school and after that a lot of study-related reading at uni. A few years ago I bought an ereader and joined GR, and I'm reading a lot since. Can't imagine what I did with all my time spent on trains and free time when I didn't read much!

Rusalka (rusalkii) | 17557 comments Welcome Rebecca and Chris! Hope you enjoy your time here.

I agree, Chris, we are very good enablers, and will encourage you to read as much as you wish. Hehe. Welcome back to reading though. I also took time out from reading after being a notorious bookworm as a kid. it's lovely to be back, hope you feel the same.

Rebecca, as indicated, we have a lot of fibre artists here as well as readers. Many also listen to audiobooks while working their magic with their wool, fabric, and the like. You may also be interested in the thread we have called What have you made lately?, particularly as people are asking for creation pictures already!

message 40: by Noelia (new)

Noelia Coletti (noelipola) Thanks for this group. I’m from Argentina, I used to study literature before becoming a full time tango dancer. Reading has always been a lonely activity for me, until now . I’m now learning to use this platform to get book recommendations and finally get in touch with people with the same passion for reading. Hugs!


message 41: by Sandra (new)

Sandra (sanlema) | 9571 comments Welcome, Noelia! A Uruguayan married to an Argentine here. :)

Welcome, Noelia! So glad you found your way to this group. You will be sure to make new friends and get plenty of recommendations 🙂 Your tango dancing sounds amazing! I have always wanted to learn how to do that dance properly.


message 43: by Margo (new)

Margo | 10023 comments Hi Noelia, welcome to the group :-)


message 44: by Sarah, Moderator (new)

Sarah | 18196 comments Welcome Noelia! Full time tango dancing sounds fun. But also possibly tiring


message 45: by Peggy, Moderator (new)

Peggy (pebbles84) | 15384 comments Welcome Noelia! Do you dance competitions or teach tango dancing? Or both?


message 46: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 49982 comments Hi Noelia, Welcome to our group. Teaching tango would be a fun career.


message 47: by Rusalka, Moderator (new)

Rusalka (rusalkii) | 17557 comments Hi Noelia, lovely to have you join us.
Sounds like you just filled another class with people wanting to dance ;)


message 48: by Noelia (new)

Noelia Coletti (noelipola) Thank you all for the lovely greetings. I’m still learning to use this and I don’t know how to reply each of you individually. This is the only group I’m joining and it sounds a lot of fun!


message 49: by Rusalka, Moderator (last edited Jan 24, 2018 04:20AM) (new)

Rusalka (rusalkii) | 17557 comments You can either hit "reply" at the bottom of each of our messages, and type a message to us each.

Or you can respond to us in a message and just mention our names. So like:
"Rusalka (or some people might say @Rusalka, whatever you wish, there is no protocol here) - I hear you're a terrible dancer as you are so uncoordinated.
Janice - It's hard to tango in six feet of snow, so I think you made the best career choice for you.
Peggy - I dance in competitions and actually am the world champion in tango dancing and hold 8 Guinness world records for the best tangoing for the longest time."
You get the idea lol

Really hope you enjoy your time with us :D And our silly sense of humour.
