Hello! :)

What is this you say, an actual entry? Or maybe you don't even remember joining this community which just goes to show how long I've been neglecting you! I'm so sorry for that but I'M BACK! Well, unofficially... we'll see how we go, hey? I'm Vanessa by the way!

So my (our) fellow mods raiindust, vividcuriosity (who are also back from their 'little' whirlwind trip... can I get a, "Hell yeah!") & artofcruelty decided to turn this community into a book lovin' community where we can share our favourite books or even our not so favourite books if you feel that strongly about them! Anything book related is welcome so go ahead and post!

For some reason I've entered a reading frenzy of late (as you can see below*) and went a bit mad at the library as I'm a poor TAFE student and would be broke/in serious credit card debt if I was to purchase all of them!

*Wagon Wheels for sustenance! ;-) Oh and yes, the book turned the wrong way around is Karen Joy Fowler's The Sweetheart Season - she's the author of the Jane Austen Book Club.

I finished Julie & Julia this afternoon and was quite surprised how I didn't get frustrated reading the book after seeing the film first (something that happens to me A LOT).

During this month I've also read:
>> A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
>> When It Happens by Susanne Colasanti
>> The Bride Stripped Bare by Anonymous (Nikki Gemmell)

I'm reading this tonight for a little fun!

If you don't have time to post your own entries I'll still love to know what you're reading, wanting to read, or if you've read any of the above books and what you thought of them, etc, etc! :)

Feel free to add me here on LJ or twitter if you'd like. I'm 130587

The mods have been thinking about this for a while, and now it has been done. We have removed members from the community who have not participated once in any of the discussions.
We are sorry this had to happen but for this community to work we want our members to be active within discussions, even if it is just one of them.

I am sorry this had to be done but we were two months in now, and sadly the mods are just feeling disappointed at the lack of participation.
