1. what is your first name?
2. What are some of your hobbies?
3. What is your favorite book, or series?


message 2: by Morgan (new)

Morgan Fogelstrom | 19 comments My name is Morgan. I'm were art and science collided. I love nature as well as the biological sciences and I also love the arts. I camp, kayak, hunt, craft, cook, and READ. I could not narrow it down to a singular favorite book. I could possible narrow it down to a book per genre. I love many of the classics. I am a huge Twain, Hemingway, and Shakespeare fan. I love Robin McKinley's Hero and the Crown in fantasy, of course the Harry Potter series,... I just realized I haven't really even narrowed it down to a single book per genre. I just love to read.

Properchica90 . | 2 comments My name is Khaliliah. The hobbies question always makes me cringe because I feel as if I don't have any. Let's see. I enjoy playing Sims, watching Youtube, hanging with my parakeets, and reading. My favorite book was Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison for the longest. Now that I am older and it has been a while, I'm not sure if I have a favorite book. I enjoy reading series. I was reading the Janet Evanovich series for a while. I have not read a lot of fantasy or sci-fi book but I would like to give them a try. Right now, I'm just trying to read a little bit of everything.

message 10: by Ella Meylin (new)

Ella Meylin (ellameylin) I'm so happy that you joined. Books are my life, and i started this group for other book lovers. I am so glad that you love books too! I'm eager to see where this book lover group leads.


message 11: by Morgan (new)

Morgan Fogelstrom | 19 comments I love groups like this because I can get a bead on new books to read. I don't discriminate on genre I just like really good books. I know that good is subjective, but also not.

Admittedly my two fav Twain books are the best known ones Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer but I really do love both of those.

I have just recently read To Kill a Mockingbird and wondered why I put it off for so long. I loved it. In it's own way it reminded me of Huck and Tom. The adventurous, guileless, precocious children stories apparently works for me.

I'm so glad you joined. Trust me, I have read plenty of books in my little life. So if you need any suggestions just let me know. I have read books in all different genres, and ages.
I deffently agree with you about To Kill A Mockingbird. It's such a good book. One of my favorites.

message 15: by Mary (new)

Mary | 9 comments Hello! My name is Mary.
I love reading (of course), journaling, reading to children. I also enjoy scrapbooking and photography.
My favorite book...hmm? I really like mysteries, Agatha Christie is my all time favorite. I just finished Dark Matter by Blake Crouch and thought it interesting, a real page turner.

I have a question for the group. Are you a book finisher at all costs, even if you don’t like the book? Or will you abandon a book if it is not for you?


message 16: by Ella Meylin (new)

Ella Meylin (ellameylin) Hi Mary. So glad you joined us.

Personally if I don't like the book I don't finish it. I usually know if I like the book if I have a connection. Some books I just don't have a connection to, I quit them.


message 17: by Morgan (new)

Morgan Fogelstrom | 19 comments I used to be a solid book finisher even when I detested it, but in the last few years I have started abandoning books that I loathe or feels like I am forcing myself to read.


message 18: by Adan (new)

Adan Arbogast | 2 comments Hi everyone,

My name is Adan. Some of my hobbies include tennis and hiking. Though I've kind of neglected those hobbies as of late because I'm on a journey to start a new career. Also, I've just started reading books since February and read a total of 16 so far! I feel that's a good accomplishment for just starting. My favorite book that I have read is "A Man Called Ove". It's a pleasure to meet you all.

I use to be a finisher, but now I have learned life is too short to read books that are not for me.
