I would like to read Maru by Bessie Head( South African writer). There is a total of 96 pages. Is there anyone else interested?

I'm not seeing a new topic button under the read-a-long forum.
You should. Click on the forum name and then you will see it.
It should be right by, or above when I'm on my phone, the search this forum box. It is not. I'm not in this thread I'm actually out on the forum where it shows three announcements and no topics.
There are no topics, as none were opened yet.

Okay, I've added the suggested books. If I've missed any, sorry. Just let me know and I'll fix it.

Please remember that this thread is for organizing read-a-longs of specific books, not genres. And members need the author to know if they want to read the book!

It's not even listed. There is a list of who is online viewing the forum, and I see on other forums where it lists my permissions, but not on the read-a-long forum. Same with the New Topic button. I went to a different forum to verify exactly where everything should be, and those things just do not appear on the forum for this thread at all.

Gali, I appreciate that you are trying to help and answer my question, but the issue I have is that there is no "new topic" button on the forum for a topic to be created. I already knew there was no topic at that point in time. I can see that what was the announcement for the read-a-long is now the one topic in the forum. I just wanted to point out the lack of a new topic button, because if this doesn't exist for anyone, the forum serves no purpose. I thought it was possible that the forum wasn't set up with the proper structure for all users to post new topics.

I am on a PC. I didn't post this from looking at my phone. I made sure I did it from my laptop where I can view the full screen as it was intended to be viewed. There is no new topic button and there is no list of permissions.

It is odd. I edited the permissions again and it should work. I see it, btw. I will ask Scott to look into it. :tiphat:
