Back to the Book - I concur with BookBabe, I'm not much of a club joiner either and it's hard to find someone who can really converse about the Fforde series.

I'm Lisa and I live in Massachusetts.
I was first introduced to Jasper Fforde in the fall 2002, I think. My son had started working at a local bookstore. One of the booksellers there got to know me and recommended 'The Eyre Affair'. I've been hooked ever since!

I started reading the Nursery Crime series about a year ago because of a recommendation made by our local library. I fell completely in love with the books and promptly read all of them in a very short time. I have recommended them to everyone I know. I'm sure that I probably miss half of the references while reading and look forward to actually discussing them with others.

My name is Mandy. I started with the Eyre Affair way back when (and I'm rereading it currently). It was calling to me from a bookshelf at Barnes and Noble. An employee had listed it as their favorite book and I thought I'd give it a shot. Since then, I've gotten my sister hooked, although she prefers nursery crime to Thursday, but she reads them both regularly. I'm glad to see another book club dedicated to Thursday

I was hooked after page one of "The Eyre Affair". I urge every book lover I know to read these books. I'm wait listed at the local library for this one. I tried the audio version but hearing the story does not capture the whole experience of these novels.
