Yes, why discuss things in the FF group on Goodreads when there are these fine fora here?

I guess I am expecting the forum to be much less active this month as the majority of members are writers of some description, or aspiring writers - and this is 'novel writing month'... I hoped there would be more readers than writers in the GR group and I was just a teeny bit disappointed to find that most of the recent posts have been from writers plugging their books and there hasn't been a 'group read' since feb. Oh well, nevermind!  :)



I doubt the forums will slow down this month.  There are as many readers on here as there are writers. :)

 :) :) :)

I really need to take the time to go through all the books I've read and post them.. and eventually, I need to start writing reviews..

..just don't have time with all the reading to be done! :)

Thank you, I didn't know about that site but it looks like I might get addicted. Clearly made with Ruby on Rails too, which I wholeheartedly approve of.

Here I am

I'm going to send you a request simply because we have the same avatar (on Goodreads!) :)

I'm an active member of Goodreads. Adam T. Parkinson's the name.
I think it's a great site, wish I had found it sooner.  :)

Like the others above me, I use Goodreads in order to categorize the books I've read - or have yet to read - participate in groups, connect with fellow readers and writers, and, ultimately, discover new and exciting works.

Hi all,

I stumbled across Goodreads last year desperate for recommendations in the fantasy realms.  I have been a member for a year and have never ventured to friend request before.  You cant imagine my joy to see this thread here on my favourite website. So, please anyone from FF I'd love to hear from you... and check out your fav rated reads and vice versa. :)

I just created an account and could use some friends to help with the ratings/suggestions :) I just randomly rated some of the books I have read based on what they showed me as I went through. I am impressed so far with what I have seen

My id is Arry on there as well

EDIT: I have updated my name on Goodreads to my actual name after a couple of friends in real life tracked me down (although we have 0 books in common .... )
