Thanks Marieke! I'm looking forward to run The Green group from Europe with you in a friendly, terrific way :) We have a lot of great environmental themes to discuss, a lot of books to discuss (in any genres, in any format), and specially our new activity " The Group Talks with Authors "

Hayes (hayes13) Hi Marieke. I'm sure you will be a great help to Michelle in running this great group.

PS Michelle: terrific means wonderful, not terrifying or terrible ;-)

Don't be sorry, Marieke! This is the magic of foreign language :-)
You have a lot of words written in English/English with a different meaning in American/ English. That is the case of the word 'terrific"!
But you have also words written in American/English and English/English with the same meaning : That is the case of " For instance" in American/ English written " For example" in English/English. " Holidays" in English/ English and "Vacations" in American/English have also the same meaning.

Marieke Hi everyone,

Michelle has come to the realization that she has too many things to balance and needed to step aside as moderator. Unfortunately I don't feel like i really know my way around the group yet and for that I apologize. I am not sure I will do things the same way as Michelle and I hope that is okay with everyone. I welcome any suggestions you have and perhaps someone from among you might be interested in co-moderating.

I think one of the first things i'll do is set up a News of the Day thread in the hopes that it will spark some conversation. I've been running across a lot of really interesting news items lately. Please enjoy!

Marieke Hi everybody!
Today Kirsten joins us as another moderator. She has a background in environmental science and has a lot of great ideas for us...not to mention knowledge!
:D

M (wwwgoodreadscomprofilem) | 337 comments Hi All,
Welcome at the new moderators' team of The Green group ! I'm sure that Marieke and Kirsten both and all the members will follow all the great discussions we have had for a time, here. And create a lot of new themes to discuss. I'll visit the group and participate as I can.
Thanks Marieke and Kirsten for your investment.
With love,
Michelle
