Club Read 2013
Welcome to Club Read 2013!
As for the past several years, we are a group of serious readers who are varied and thoughtful in our reading and would like to log/journal publicly our 2013 reading. The group is also for those of us who like to follow what other LTers are reading. Pronounced like "Club Red". While all are welcome, please take a look around to see if we're the kind of readers you'd like to hang with. Many of us have been together on Club Read 2009, Club Read 2010, Club Read 2011, and Club Read 2012.
What to do: Create your own thread, naming it whatever you like but please use your LT user name in the title. This is so others can easily find you, if they would like. Feel free to include any and all reading you do, if you like (i.e. magazines, individual stories, work-related or school-related texts), it's your journal. Also, a few lines of commentary about each entry, even if you are linking to your review elsewhere, would encourage interest and thus, conversation - but, again, it's your journal.
This year, once again, volunteers have offered to set up and manage some of our regular threads, including monthly What Are You Reading? threads (lilisin), bimonthly Interesting Articles threads (MJ/detailmuse), and quarterly and year-end Best Reads threads (AnnieMod). Thanks also to Lois/avaland for the book stack group photo. THANK YOU ALL!
This group is for its members. Please feel free to start threads that you think would be of interest in addition to the standard ones.
And have fun reading!
