What a lovely idea! :)

Name/Age/Location: Chantelle, 19, Toronto
Top 5 favourite books: Rebecca (Daphne Du Marier), The Count of Monte Cristo (Alexandre Dumas), The Picture of Dorian Gray (Oscar Wilde), the Harry Potter series (JK Rowling), Hamlet (Shakespeare)
Would you be able to read a book a month? I'd be able to read a book a week! :p
Genres you enjoy reading: I'm a bit of a snob when it comes to the classics. I have a thing for either long, difficult books about society or philosophy, or pretty, neat short stories/vignettes with an emotional focus. Really, I like anything that's well-written.
Genres you would be interested in learning about: It'd be good to brush up on my poetry. And I could stand to delve a little deeper in Russian and Japanese literature... ;)
Genres you know you would never enjoy: I hate sexy-vampire-novels with a passion, and (believe it or not) that actually came before Twatlight!
Are you easily able to find books where you live or do you have difficulty finding books: Very easily.
Would you be able to lead/enjoy leading a discussion for a book: Definitely!
What book would you recommend members of the book club read: I've been reading Umberto Eco lately, so anything by him :p His books have a lot of intertexuality, and he's a well-known semiotician. His Foucault's Pendulum came waaaaay before The DaVinci Code and is pretty much the intelligent person's version of Dan Brown's bestseller.
Anything else?
Not that I can think of!
