Re: Welcome to the General Fiction Forum - Introduce Yourself

Hi, my name is Yolanda, I'm 51 yrs old and work at Home Depot. My love of reading started when I was 5yrs old when my mom started taking me to the local library every week to get books.  I like reading almost all book genres.  As long as it is well written I'll probably read it.  I am new the the eBook thing but I find I like as well if not better than "dead tree" reading:smileyhappy:

 

I would like to join a book club forum very much. If anyone can give me any information on how that is done I would appreciate it. Any information on how to cultivate Nook Friends would be of help also.

Re: Welcome to the General Fiction Forum - Introduce Yourself

Hello, everyone! My name is Candice. I've worked on that name a long time ago. I really wanted to have a pen name that actually meant something to me. All the letters in the name stand for the first letter in the name of a person I admire. It was a tedious process but it was all worth it. Now, I have a pen name that I am completely proud of... That's all I really wanna share right now. :cathappy: Hoping for a really fun time here with all you guys!

Welcome to the forum candice_major, i hope that you'll give us a little more into your pen name maybe in the future, you sure have me intrigued.

I hope that you'll find what you're looking for, whether it's a monthly featured book read as a group, suggestions to load up your nook or your shelves or just some e-friends to chat with.

Re: Welcome to the General Fiction Forum - Introduce Yourself

Hello,

 

My name is Kirsten. I'm new here and I guess I'll join in on the reading in November - which I can't believe will be here as soon as next. week. I have been looking for a book club to help me find new authors and to help me get back into the groove of discussing books again. 

 

I live in Columbia, MO where I work as an Executive Assistant by day. By night I play in the theatre, take drawing classes, belly dance classes and yoga. I also act, direct and teach acting classes to adults in the community. I'm currently the chair of the play selection committee for our community theatre so I read and discuss a lot of dramatic literature. 

 

I guess I'm at the beginning of my mid-life crisis - which I've been looking forward to for a long time. One of the things this "crisis" is leading me back to is my love of writing. I used to write quite a bit and then I just stopped. And I feel like I've lost my voice and I want to get it back - or discover the voice I have now. I've been reading Page after Page by Heather Sellers and one of the assignments is to join a reading group and discuss books on a regular basis.The play selection committee I work with meets every Sunday and we read 2 to 4 plays a week, but I thought it might be cheating a bit to count that as my book discussion group. And part of the fun of learning something new is meeting new people and moving out of your comfort zone.

 

What else? I'm a mom to a 13 y.o. daughter who is an avid reader, but refuses to read anything I recommend. I'm also a new wife. We just celebrated our 3rd anniversary this month. 

 

I'm looking forward to connecting with you here. 

 

Happy reading,

Kirsten

 

Here's the book I mentioned above. :smileyhappy:

Re: Welcome to the General Fiction Forum - Introduce Yourself

Thanks Debbie. I recently began to publish on here, although as a published author, I am easily found on various websites. Some of the best kept secrets was the fact, I didn't know B and N had set up a program. Thanks again.
