Would you be able to read a book a month? *Fingers Crossed* Hopefully yes. I'll ditch uni work to keep up. LOL
Genres you enjoy reading: I'll read pretty much anything as long as it sounds interesting and is well written. I like Science Fiction, Supernatural/Paranormal, COmedy, Romance, Mystery/Thriller and a little bit of History. Like I said, pretty much everything.
Genres you would be interested in learning about: I feel like I haven't read enough of/any of the classics, which makes me kinda sad.
Genres you know you would never enjoy: I don't think I've come across a genre that I don't like in some form, yet.
Are you easily able to find books where you live or do you have difficulty finding books: I've got a couple book stores (Mary Ryan, Two Book Citys, plus a Big W and a Target). Plus our town library, but they don't have anything too recent :( If I can't find the book there, then I may have some trouble getting them.
Would you be able to lead/enjoy leading a discussion for a book: Of course!
What book would you recommend members of the book club read: Any of the five from above. But definitely Witch Child by Celia Rees. I love that book so much! ♥
Anything else?
This is a fantastic idea! But what's the go if we fall behind or something?

lol if you fall behind um nothing happens, I guess you'll just participate in discussions about how far you're into the book! It's basically one book a month and we're going to try and give choices so you don't feel like you have to read one book.

I have to say you have awesome choices in novels! Anything by Melina Marchetta or Jaclyn Moriarty is so much love! and you don't discriminate against genres so that's awesome as well!

PS I totally haven't read enough classics either!

oh thank god for that. lol. i had to face the wrath of the almighty mod if i fell behind. ;D

thank you! i'm really excited about this book club :D

you don't discriminate against genres so that's awesome as well! i go with the "dont knock it till you try it" saying when it comes to books etc

Pee Ess. I watched plenty of them (like Pride and Prejudice etc) cos my Mum totally loves them, I've just never actually read them. lol
