A couple of years ago, on a health forum I ran, we started chatting about books, and someone mentioned we needed a book club. I promptly started a yahoo group, moved it to a hosted forum, then quickly moved it again, this time to a phpBB forum.
I’ve always liked reading, but my tastes are pretty simple. I’ve avoided forums in the past, because I’ve always felt that if I didn’t read the ‘right’ books, or have anything profound to say, I wouldn’t be welcome to post. That’s just what I didn’t want for my forum.
And, I think I’ve achieved it. We have some wonderfully friendly members, and they’re happy to talk about all sorts of books, be it chick-lit, horror, fantasy etc.
We’ve moved to a vBulliten board, which has more to offer, we have a growing selection of author interviews, and some even hang around for a month, as our Featured Authors. Reader and writers together.. what could be better?! 🙂
If you haven’t visited, give us a try. And if you vsited a while ago, pop back and see what’s new.
