Hi, I thought I would start this group to get in touch with other booklovers in the area who are here on goodreads.

FYI--- some of us meet in person once a month for a book club discussion. New folks are always welcome...just RSVP to one of our events!

Feel free to introduce yourself!

************
P.S. Authors--- you are free to join our conversations but if you are here simply to promote your book please do so in our dedicated discussion area: http://www.goodreads.com/topic/group_...

Any posts made in this Welcome thread that are ads for your book will be deleted.

Clare | 21 comments Hi Everybody, I'm Clare. It looks as if only women on the South Shore read! What are all the men doing I wonder? I love books, have been reading anything and everything since I learned to read.

Nicole (nicolehelengracia) | 3 comments Hi-
I am excited to chat with this group! Thanks for the invite. I am also in Weymouth. We have lived here for 6 years but are trying to sell our house and move to Scituate where I teach and my oldest son is attending kindergarten. Not fun trying to sell right now......anyway...looks like a lot of various books have been read by this group. Looking forward to discussing some!!

Sylvia (sylvs03) | 1 comments Hello! Glad to join the group! I'm an avid reader who likes all kinds of subjects. I live in Quincy and belong to a bookclub that gets together once a month. Looking forward to seeing what other people are reading!


message 8: by Victoria (new)

Victoria Sandbrook (vsandbrook) Hi everyone! I'm new to MA--new enough that I'm still not sure about whether Brockton is considered "South Shore," but this group is the closest to where I am, so I thought I'd join and connect with some local book lovers. I'm an editorial assistant at a publisher in Boston, run an online book group that's just starting up, and am working on revising my first novel. Happy reading, everyone!

Welcome to the new folks. Some of us do meet live about once a month. Others just chat/post online here.

All are welcome to come to our next meeting in December. We've been meeting for a few months now and are still pretty small but as Joanie said, the more the merrier!

Kim | 1 comments i love this website good reads. I did not realize how much I read since I've joined. I keep track of both my books and the books that my son reads in school. He loves telling me of all the books he likes reading, so I post the comments on good reads.


message 28: by Rachel (new)

Rachel (mrsmarch) Hi, I live in Quincy. I've never been part of a book group so I'm not sure how discussions work. I've put the next book for discussion on hold at the library so when it comes in I'll read it and maybe I'll get up the nerves to come to the September meet!

Otherwise, I lurk. I'm quiet but I'm always on the lookout for a Good Read!

message 31: by Angela (new)

Angela (bellaluna99) Hello all. I live in Abington and was looking for a local book club. Loved the book you are reading now (Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie). Do you have live meetings or strictly online discussion?

We have live meetings every month at the Borders in Braintree (Union Street). Our next meeting is this Sunday 06/27 at 1PM. We try to meet in the cafe, but if there are no available tables you will find us in one of the small seating areas. Just look for someone with the book "Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie". Hope to see you there.

Kg4jbj | 3 comments Just wanted to say hello to everyone. I live outside of DC, but am originally from Scituate, and also lived in Cohasset. My late mom was a librarian at Norwell Public Library for many years and both my parents indulged my love for reading. It's nice to read so many voices from the South Shore.
