Hi there all you kindred spirits out there. I'm a hopelessly addicted book lover who has already accumulated enough print matter to consume a soul in reading for over 100 years solid!

But, of course, that doesn't stop me expanding the library on a weekly basis.

Looking forward to getting in the mix. Where's the best place on the site to go to get a bit of book banter going??

BTW, great site - who's idea & who oils the machinery to allow us to waffle on??

cheers, bart

Welcome Bart, Sounds like you have alot of energy and should bring it here to liven it up a bit.


Thanks Isabell. I'm certainly envigorated by the varied discussions going on here. And all about the subject that is the very blood that keeps my heart beating.... books.

Hello & welcome,
Do you have a favorite genre? Or do you like a bit of everything? I am the latter. I hope you do enjoy yourself here and find many new books and conversations to feed your addiction :)


Cheers Ronny. I guess I do like a bit of everything - fiction from the classics to new releases, non-fiction from psychology to chess instruction to biographies.

My only limitation is my debilitatingly slow reading speed. So I do try to make a decision in the first 20-30 pages as to whether I should persist. As a result I do have a hankering for short stories - any genre really (I'm reading sci-fi for the first time in yonks at the moment - I, Robot by Asimov) but I have to admit a particular love for the work of Raymond Carver - the greatest English-speaking short-story writer that has ever sucked breathe into a human lung.

Looking forward, Bart.
