Not really new, but not been around!
« on: January 26, 2020, 06:00:27 PM »
Hello everyone, I hope you're all in fine fettle this soggy and cold evening!

I originally signed up on the forum back in 2011, but never really got involved for some reason. Now, a few things in things in my life have changed since I signed up, but my reading has never changed!

I read mostly fantasy and sci-fi (obviously, or I wouldn't be here!) but also the odd bit of horror, and a few thrillers.

Hopefully, I'll stick around a bit more this time, and get to know you all! ;D

If you want some idea of my reading and book buying habits, feel free to look me up on Instagram Instagram or Goodreads.

Welcome back!
Reading is always the cornerstone of my life too, and this place is my home :D

I love your title, the one below the avatar - introverts for the win 8)

At the moment the forum is a bit slow and quiet, but we're all really good here, and we just need a question or a comment to get us going again!
Do you also write? I'm trying to get more entries on our monthly contest, hehe

Welcome back.

The forum is more fun now that me and @isos81 are here now. Breath of fresh air kinda ... 8)

Welcome back! This forum is a silly place :) but also very chill and a great reprieve from the hassle of some other places online with all the heated arguments.

I did dabble many years ago, and once my life is settled again, and I'm back in the right frame of mind, I might try my hand again.

I'm ancient beyond years, I've  left my putrid flesh behind and now i'm just a shambling Lich haunting the passage of the F-Fl ibrary  feeding on the trapped souls of my unwary apprentices for my unnatural life span. I feast whenever an old topic gets revived.

Going by this, you should probably weigh a couple thousand tons!  ;D

Nah, he is like Monkey D. Luffy. With the amount of energy he spends, he never gains weight :)
