There is a limit to how much random posting goes on in any of the forums here, please try to keep Off Topic conversations on the Off Topic Coffee Shop Thread.  It will keep the boards clear and easier to navigate.  It is a bit of a naunce to wade through a pile of redundant ramblings to find the actual writing posts.  (Sorry about the rant, but someone needed to say it...)

Thank you Fleet! Hope everyone has a wonder new year. Anysoo. I found the book clubs by accident. I had a problem with my nook. I was kinda freaked out because I had just bought it. I looked through the FAQ's that didn't help. I saw the discutions so I clicked on it. At first I didn't understand the seemingly random threads. Because I have never been on a forum before. Then it clicked. Iwent to my account still have not idea whats wrong with my nook. Then I saw my B&N. Hmmm I got myself a pin nam and. Went back retraced my steps and figured it out. But soon as I found the writing room though I was hooked. I love the boards. But the members make it so.

Re: How you got here..

I'm brand new here, set up my profile, started looking around. I found this quite accidentally. I was link hopping looking for local writers groups. I ended up on a yahoo listing and found Barnes and Noble listed there. I've been a card carrying member of Barnes and Noble since they came up with a card system I think. I'm still using my old tan one! How could I possibly go wrong joining up here? I detest shopping, except for going to B and N's every week. I think I could live there. My kids have grown up in our B and N's! There is something so tantalizing about rows upon rows of new books. Gets me every time. So, I am going to take a little bit of time away from my manuscript and poke around the boards. I will look forward to meeting you.

Help me down the crooked road. Lead me to the light. I'm not sure I know the way but with you beside me, I'm certain we'll make it through.

Re: How you got here..

B&N sent me an email about this place a year or two ago, else I NEVER would have known it exists.  I mostly hang out in the Writers' Room, the Teens' Room (I call myself a very old teenager), Lost Books, the Science Fiction Room, Arts & Entertainment and the Community Room.  I love this place -- it beats the heck out of watching junk on TV!

Re: How you got here..

I just found this and I have been at B&N for a time. I gave the wrong answer up in Community Room and corrected it by giving directions to this forum. I stay mainly with Pubit.

You inadvertently used a naughty bit of slang -- I'm surprised the software didn't flag it!  :smileyvery-happy:

Re: How you got here..

I was trying to click on the General Fiction Board link and accidentally hit this one . . .

 

No. I'm kidding. I used to be on the Harry Potter board. I started getting interested in editing and writing and wandered around until I landed on this board. Been on here for over two years. Not so much lately.
