Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

I am new to this site. Where do I go to read a book and then review it? This is confusing to me. Do I pick a book and then review it?

You have to join the Review team and have at least 5 meaningful posts before you can see it. The books will be on your RT page.

I would suggest joining in some of the existing topics. This will give you the post count and help you get acquainted with the site. If you do choose to post reviews, please know that new members aren't allowed to open threads for books with low sales ranks on Amazon (this rule can be found in the Anti-Spam thread in this forum, specifically rule #8), and that duplicated topics will be locked or deleted. A site search can be found here so you can check to see if a book or topic has already had a thread opened for it :tiphat:

Welcome and good luck :good-luck-smiley:
