Spudsie | 44 comments Welcome Kate!

Most of my "reading" friends live out of state...I've found this group to be an awesome place to discuss books and get more to read!

Rowena (rowenacherry) | 52 comments Welcome, Kate, you've chosen the best book-related social networking site (and there are at least half a dozen.)

Check out every drop down menu on your toolbar especially Explore and Groups,if you haven't already because it's amazing how much GoodReads has to offer.

Well, I don’t mean to hijack the thread, but I’m new, too. I’m always looking for new books, and this seems like a good place to find them.

Welcome to both Kate and Deleted Member (what an interesting name!)

I am sure you will both find this site highly addictive and slowly eating up all your free time *and sometimes most of your 'not so free time' too....

I am slightly biased and love my group, and am glad to share it with so many booklovers!

message 13: by Sherry (new)

Sherry Hi Kate.I can empathize with friends not reading comment.My friends and family's eyes begin to glaze over as the conversation turns to whatever I'm reading.Without GRs I'd go crazy.

Deleted Member.I must admit that I didn't realize you weren't a deleted member when I read your name(you're far quicker than me Lori!)Kudos for a completely unique name and welcome to the group. :)

Sherry, It almost threw me for a loop.... Almost. ha ha

message 15: by [deleted user] (new)

Sorry for the confusion ladies, I have an odd sense of humor. Thank you, though, for the welcome.

message 16: by Marsha (new)

Marsha I love a warped sense of humor!

Hiya Kate!

Welcome, Kate.

message 18: by [deleted user] (last edited Sep 18, 2008 05:21AM) (new)

Be welcome, Kate! I'm relatively new, too. I can tell you that is intersting & instructive & good & fun & challenging & addition. I'm enjoying the group very much. And on recommendations side, what our friends said is happening to me, too.

Jamie (The Perpetual Page-Turner) (perpetualpageturner) | 636 comments Welcome Kate!!

Krista (findyourshimmy) | 382 comments Welcome, Kate! You've found the perfect spot for fellow read-aholics.

message 21: by Lynai (new)

Lynai hi everyone. i'm sure glad i found goodreads (though i have trouble remembering how i found my way into this site). all along i thought i was a "voracious" reader but got so humbled knowing there are more people who read more than i do. and it sure is cool knowing there are lots who still love to read (most of my friends aren't into books that much). i am having a really good time here.

message 22: by Krista (new)

Krista (findyourshimmy) | 382 comments Welcome to Lynai as well! (waves)

Hi Lynai... welcome~

message 25: by Linda (new)

Linda | 887 comments Welcome Lynai. If your friends aren't into books, they don't know what fun they are missing. As your new friend, I am happy you joined the party.

message 26: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Hi Kate! I've discovered so many great books here that I probably wouldn't have even heard of elsewhere. It's a great site.

message 27: by Jeane (new)

Jeane | 4891 comments Welcome Kate, like all the others wrote already: you found others who are addicted, obsessed, crazy about books, reading and everything near to it!!! Enjoy and have fun getting more obsessed than you are already(as you came to this site!).

message 28: by Lynai (new)

Lynai thanks everyone. i feel so welcome, like it's family! :) now, i'm into reading again and it's more fun now because of Goodreads.

message 29: by Jeane (new)

Jeane | 4891 comments Sherry, i was thinking 'deleted memeber' did something wrong and was deleted for it!!!!

message 30: by [deleted user] (last edited Oct 07, 2008 04:32AM) (new)

Not yet, Jeane. I've been watching my p's and q's.

Linda | 887 comments Petra X, I am impressed. You have that waving thing down to a science. LOL.

Petra: all work & no play makes you poor.On hiatus (petra-x) I'd try hugs too but it seems a bit intimate for an introduction.

message 50: by Lauren (new)

Lauren (lmorris) | 91 comments I just joined this group. I'd been interested in a reading group but knew I didn't have another evening to make a meeting and had heard they turn more social than book related if you pick the wrong one. I'm excited to see what I find here.
