Would you be able to read a book a month? Yes.
Genres you enjoy reading: Fantasy, Young Adult, Romance, Classics, Gothic, Science Fiction, Historical fiction... basically anything.
Genres you would be interested in learning about: I'd like to get into the biography/autobiography genre, and more classics. One can never have enough classics.
Genres you know you would never enjoy: -
Are you easily able to find books where you live or do you have difficulty finding books: HAI BORDERS.
Would you be able to lead/enjoy leading a discussion for a book: Sure thing. I guess I'm going to have to!
What book would you recommend members of the book club read: Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones. Yes, its fantasy and many members have already stated their issues with it that particular genre, but its also Young Adult Fiction, and that, in my honest opinion, cancel's out the whole issue with it being too intense and too hard to follow. Besides, the core story is just too beautiful to not recommend to people.
Anything else? I figured I should do this as well, so we don't discriminate between mods and members :P
