Hey all! :lol: My Mom had actually sent me a link to this site based on the "paid for reviews" aspect. I decided to stay though just because this seems like a great place to find books based on things I've read previously. Also It may help me keep track of what I completed better and make me want to actually complete the books I am reading now! Anyways I look forward to being here and meeting some fellow readers :P .

Hi to all.. Good day. This is my first time to join a book club.I must say that i am a book worm myself because I always find time to read books and library was the most quiet place i ever knew even though I have a busy schedule due to my day Job but hey books are my first love. I consider this as my hobby too. Just by merely reading books I can explore a new world. I really enjoy all that settings and place I can go beyond my imagination through books. Thank you for reading this reply.. Happy reading everyone... :D

Hi Hester,
If you read a little bit further you will see that you must be an active participant of the forum before you may be invited to do a review. So, come and have some fun with others who like what you like and may be able to assist you when you do get to write a book review. I'm new, too, and I don't bite (as far as anyone here knows). :shifty:

Hiya!
I'm a young professional who likes to read.
I realize that's a really vague descriptor but it's for those who need to get their info and get out, ya know?
I work in front-end development (currently learning wordpress) and...wine! I work in a wine shop. I'm trying to transition away from wine (even if the topic is interesting it's still working in retail-ugh) but for now it pays the bills. I graduated from University in May 2016, I have a dog I'm completely obsessed with and I am an equal opportunity reader. I will read anything from any genre with a strong enough recommendation. I love playing around with past years' versions of NPR's Book Concierge, and as such my "To-Read" list is quite long (this is note yet reflected on this website, but the titles are swimming around in my head constantly.) I guess I joined because I wanted to talk to opinionated and critical individuals. Always looking for new recommendations, I wanted to find a group of people who could expand upon the usual tale of "it's just good."

Hello,

I love reading. I joined because I would like to get better at the review process. I am a creative polymath and want to add constructive writing to my list of skills.

I look forward to being here, meeting and interacting with all of you, and getting better at what I'd like to do!

Post by AlexisFerguson » 06 Apr 2017, 15:50

Hello!

My name is Alexis Ferguson and I am currently a freshman university student. My life goal is to work in various writing formats, but mostly novel and script writing. I am currently in the process of building my writing skill set and hope for this reviewing opportunity to provide me with much-needed experience.

I do hope to meet people along the same path as I am. I love YA fiction and one day hope to work with young adults with dreams of becoming published authors.

Thank you for reading:)
