i can't believe i didn't look for this site sooner. i've complained for so long about never having anyone to talk about books with. thank the gods for the net! :)

a little about me: i live just outside of vancouver, bc. my favorite book genre is post- apocalyptic, but i enjoy pretty much anything set in any time outside of the present, especially with lots of action/adventure. right now i'm reading Oryx and Crake, which is excellent.

favorite books:
the day of the triffids
weaveworld
battlefield earth
monsoon

i look forward to spending time here!!

no prob.

haha, i know how it to have a significant other that doesn't read. my on again/off again girlfriend won't pick up a book for anything. i'm glad i stumbled across this site because real life book groups are usually a little too wierd for me, and i sure can't discuss anything with her. lol.

Cool, do you know what area exactly?

Cheers, Martin :cool:

I think most of them are in Heemskerk and/or Beverwijk. I don't know very much about Holland, but my relations go there every few years for a big reunion

my man tried once or twice to read my books, but he didnt get far (not that i read anything nuts)

i might have gladly endured weirdo book club doods, but there weren't any clubs in my area that i ever found. glad i found this place.

Most of the people I know who are readers have significant others who don't read. My husband only reads the Dune series (the entire thing...he likes the new books, as well). I can't convince him to read anything else, though I know there are some authors out there whom he would enjoy.
