Hi! Seriously, hi!!

We are so stoked that you are here with us, really (imagine you are in a room full of flying confetti, colorful balloons and glitter because in our minds, that is what our Welcome thread look like). So yes, welcome new members! We are a quirky, nerdy lot but we mostly play nice and we love reading just like you so we think you will definitely be a great addition to us. Don’t worry, we don’t haze newbies here, promise!

What we do here is that we share book recommendations, we have a group read every quarter and we sometimes meet up (you can join too, when you’re ready) to have lunch/dinner and play board games. Granted these are not all that we do, but they are pretty much the gist.

Please take the time to explore our other threads and get to know us more. Hopefully, in time, you’ll fall in love. For first-timers, introduce yourselves right here and afterwards to get you started, perhaps you can answer these questions and join the fun right away! What was the first English book you read? What are you currently reading? Enough about books, what about you? Could you tell us ten random things about yourself?

If you have any questions, don’t ever hesitate to ask. Our mods: Rachel, Reza, Lynossa and Jati are always happy to help.

We hope to see you popping up in our different threads!

Lots of love and lots of hugs,

Toodles.

Hey Daniel! Welcome! I'm sorry that the club is very inactive at the moment. I've been busy with my thesis and work. I'll get this club up and running soon.

In the meantime, enjoy your time here :)

Hey Verlysia! Welcome to the group and I hope you enjoy your time here with us. We're still a rather new group, and because I'm busy with my thesis, we haven't chosen a book to read as a group yet, but don't worry, as soon as I finish my thesis, we'll be doing that :)

Btw, I read a lot of YA too :)

Hopefully, I could improve my English (trust me, my speaking is lousy) here."

message 24: by Fairlita (new)

Fairlita | 10 comments Hi, everyone! I'm Fairly. Just found this group and am sooo glad to have done so. A huge part of books I read is in English as it's impossible to find Indonesian ones here, and to make it worse, people here very seldom read English books. So it's a bit frustrating to find sharing partners. Having said that, I'll be looking forward to the group reading! :-)

Soon! :) Let me just get my thesis in order first. That being said, everyone! What kind of books are you interested to read? Fiction of what genre? I would love to hear your ideas :)


message 26: by Rizma (new)

I'll go with anything, i think. This will be the push i need to get on with my TBR pile/yearly book challenge... :-p

Good luck for your thesis, Rachel!

Retno Hello everybody! Nice to see you all.
I'm Retno, live in Holland and has been reading books in english since I live here. I'm lucky enough to live in a country where it's so easy to find books in english. I don't need to buy, local public libraries provide them as well.
