    I'm excited to be able to read about everyone's new book choices!

  • Hello, my name is Ann and I loved reading when I was growing up, but I took a break from it while going to college. I am now back at it and I love reading private detective, romance, solving crimes, and so forth.

    Hi everyone, As you can tell from my user name I love books. I'll read just about anything except mysteries or horror. As a kid I used to read cereal boxes and labels when I didn't have a book around. I love Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, J.R. Tolkien, Frank Herbert and many contemporary fiction writers.

    Hi Annie! I am new too and some of my friends call me Chelsea, my legal name, while others call me Annie, my nickname.

    Presently I live in Florida and I am reading mostly non-fiction right now: Two of the books I am reading are "The (honest) truth about dishonesty" by Dan Ariel, and "The stress and mood management program for individuals with multiple sclerosis" by David Mohr.

    Hope to meet more of you. Happy reading!

    Hey all! I'm Katie and new and when I saw a group for readers I knew I had to join! I love reading and although I don't have the time now due to studying that doesn't stop me from buying books haha I have a huge stack that when I have the time I will be reading like crazy :) I love little book shops, the smell of old books, the look of covers and dream of owning a gorgeous library in my dream house! Complete with a window bench seat to curl up on and one of those sweet rolling ladders! I get way too involved in fictional characters but I love it that way! Hoping to find some great suggestions and talk about my love of books with all you awesome readers!

    Hi I'm Sam and I love reading but my "To Be Read" pile is always more then the "I've read" pile. I love history stuff and sci-fantasy and most genres except horror cos I'm a big girly wimp with an overactive imagination when it comes to bed time. (I know the zombies are gonna get me one day)

    Hellooo! My name is Mianna and I just joied MFP (goal: lose 50lbs)...I've always seen people on machines at the gym reading books or magazines and I kinda envied them. Whenever *I* try, things just "jiggle" a little too much and I can't see the words! But I've recently discovered my Kindle is handy for more than my work commute - I can adjust the font size and focus on machines - wooty woot! Right now, I'm doing 30 minutes of cardio at a time and that handy lil e-book gets me through exactly 21.5 minutes before I start to notice I'm sweating! I joined the group mainly because I liked there were other readers on here - I'm currently reading "Midwives: A Novel" by Chris Bohjalian.
  • Hi all! My name is Cathy and I joined MFP about a year ago. With a co-worker we started a book club with four others almost two years ago.

    We finished up Molok a'i by Alan Brennert last month and decided to read his Honolulu for August. I personally just read Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. All are excellent although I greatly disliked the ending of Gone Girl!
  • Hi, Barb k here, on my iPad,and trying to lose those few extra pounds all my life, and it's getting harder since I'm older, 70's, I'm a reader, love thrillers and bee a volunteer at our local library at the front desk for last 11 years, so have a great supply and insight on the newer and better ones. Sort of into ebooks since I have the iPad and a kindle, but still prefer the hard cover pages. Hope someone replies, would love a weight loss and book lover friend here.

    Hi - just saw this group and joined, as I love reading. I normally read a lot more fiction than non-fiction, but I seem to be going through a phase of reading more non-fiction at the moment. I'm currently reading 'How to Live Off-Grid' by Nick Rosen, which is about the author's adventures in living off-grid and meeting others who are doing so. I'm also reading 'Embracing the Wide Sky' by Daniel Tammet, which is about how different people's minds work.

    Hi! My name is Iulia and reading and writing is part of my job as I am a translator. I've been reading a lot since my childhood, especially from world's greatest writers and poets like Dostoievsky, Kafka, Gogol, Baudelaire and many others. During my MA in translations I have discovered contemporary literature and I liked it even more than the classics (Herta Muller, Beckett, Murakami, etc). I currently read books from Amazon about becoming a freelance writer.
  • Hi! I'm Angie and love to read. I read pretty much anything but my absolute favorite series is the Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning. I was so sad when it ended. Thankfully she has a new series coming soon with the same characters.
