... to begin with, obvs.
Would you be able to read a book a month? Yes.
Genres you enjoy reading: Fiction (classics and contemporary), Young Adult Fiction, Autobiographies, Biographies, Business books... I'll read pretty much anything. :P
Genres you would be interested in learning about: Um... ANY?!
Genres you know you would never enjoy: Anything way out, like far-fetched fantasy but I'd be willing to give it a go.
Are you easily able to find books where you live or do you have difficulty finding books: Right now? It kinda sucks. I have to rely on the limited library (there are NO bookstores, yuh, seriously)... BUT that's why we have ONLINE SHOPPING. :D
Would you be able to lead/enjoy leading a discussion for a book: Sure.
What book would you recommend members of the book club read: On Chesil Beach by Ian McEwan - I just read it a couple days ago - it's almost a short story but awesome like everything else McEwan has written.
Anything else? ME = *EXCITED!*

Everytime I see your list of favorite books I'm reminded of why I friended you. ♥ Voltaire! Nabokov! Capote! I like the last two as well, but not as much as the first three :p
