Forum rules


Please read BEFORE posting in the "Introduce Yourself" forum

This forum is a friendly place for new members to say hello to the BookTalk.org community. We love meeting new members and hope you take a few minutes to tell us a bit about yourself. :)

  • Are you male or female?
  • Where are you from?
  • What are your hobbies or special interests?
  • What sort of books do you enjoy reading?
  • How did you find BookTalk.org?

1. Please do no make an introduction post if you have no intention of interacting with us
If you introduce yourself you'll be greeted by BookTalk.org members. We get excited when new people join and we take our time to give them a warm welcome.

2. Create your own introduction thread
Please do not introduce yourself in someone else's introduction thread.

3. Use a descriptive subject line for your introduction thread
A subject line shouldn't simply be "Hi" or "My Intro." Try something unique.

4. If you're an author or publisher do NOT tell us about your books in this forum
We have forums specifically for suggesting books, and this is not one of them.

Authors & Publishers that would like to share their books with BookTalk.org members and visitors have several options available. For maximum visibility consider advertising on BookTalk.org.

Hello and welcome Liz.

I also enjoyed "Reading Lolita in Tehran". The women in the book are very memorable.

I hope you enjoy yourself here at BookTalk.org!

Thank you all for the warm wishes! :D

I haven't read Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov; that story has always sent chills up and down my spine! :shock:

In Part 1 of the book I'm reading "Reading Lolita in Tehran" they do cover some of the Lolita story but the focus is how women who live in Iran interpret or relate this story and other stories as well.... They cover Scott Fitzgerald, Henry James, Jane Austen and the famous Vladimir Nabokov.... It's been an interesting read!

I'm waiting on my book .... " A Visit from the Goon Squad"
to join that discussion .... :D

What are you currently reading?!
