Name/Age/Location: Nikki/14/NSW, Australia
Top 5 favourite books: The Bell Jar, The Catcher In The Rye, My Sister's Keeper, Feeling Sorry For Celia (not ground-breaking writing or anything, but it reminds me of all things good) and Go Ask Alice.
Would you be able to read a book a month? Sure would!
Genres you enjoy reading: People have noticed I tend to go for classics, and a lot of American Literature. But I'd read most things.
Genres you would be interested in learning about: Any and all.
Genres you know you would never enjoy: I'd probably never pass judgement unless I'd given it a go. But I guess I've never been a Harry Potter or Twilight fan, so you could say books in that genre!
Are you easily able to find books where you live or do you have difficulty finding books: It depends, I don't have Borders where I live but I have a few libraries and book stores, or can order online if I need to.
Would you be able to lead/enjoy leading a discussion for a book: I guess being a mod I say I'd have to :)
What book would you recommend members of the book club read: The Catcher In The Rye
Anything else? Good movement against discrimination Jess :) haha

Totally agree on Feeling Sorry for Celia. I always reccomend it to people not because it's anything particularly brilliant, as you said, but because you can't help but smile/laugh when reading it. I first read it when I was 12 (I'm now 20) and I re-read at least once a year. It never loses it's appeal.

I feel pretty much exactly the same about Feeling Sorry for Celia. I must have been 12 or 13 when I first read it and I re-read it all the time (I'm 21 now) and it still manages to make me smile!
