I'd be interested. How does it work?

posey · 30/05/2011 16:32

Yes, may be, but don't really know what it is all about, but interested in hooky things Smile

posey · 30/05/2011 16:34

Oh blimey, not hooky things of course, booky things. Bolo in predictive text ( there we go again, on dh 's iPad)

Stops by and has a sentimental moment for the Book Club I started back in the day. (Have name changed since then)

Would love to join you but will have to give this year a miss as RL kind of busy at the moment.

Hope you enjoy your reads.

  1. Get 12 members (one for each month of the year).


  1. Decide if you have any banned genres (chick lit/mis lit etc)


  1. Decide a date each month you post books.


  1. Make the members into a list to show who posts to who (post the the person after you on the list).


  1. Exchange addresses (either just the people posting tell their poster, or a sort of mass address giving via email that gets forwarded to everyone/the right person via a co-ordinator).


  1. Post book (pref with MN name written in it!)


  1. Read, enjoy and comment on that book's thread

Count me in :)

Jas · 30/05/2011 22:04

That was copied from Flamesparrow, from my first circle,btw.

Generally both chick lit and mis lit are excluded, unless anyone has any strong objections to other types, though, anything goes! I love getting a surprise book each month, and have read so many books I wouldn't have otherwise looked twice at.

steamedtreaclesponge · 01/06/2011 11:20

Ah, I was from the year before that so maybe there isn't anyone else that I remember... that would explain it I suppose!

posey · 01/06/2011 16:45

Sorry, can you take me off this time? Really not sure I have the time to commit to this for a year. Thanks anyway and happy reading Smile

Jas · 01/06/2011 22:08

Steamed - did you have a good time? BTW, did you ever get your book back from the 1st FurQuits round? I think the majority of us never did :(

simpson · 01/06/2011 23:00
