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.

If you're brand new to forums you might want to read our FAQ page.

Post Hello from a lurker
I've been visiting booktalk.org for a little while, but have yet to jump into any conversations. I've read a number of the books being discussed, but not recently enough to remember details and contribute much. I've enjoyed being reminded of some their highlights though. My schedule has recently lightened up so I am able to read more, so I thought it was time to step into the light.

Requisite information:
Are you male or female? female
Where are you from? I'm from America (Tennessee), but I currently live in the UK.
What are your hobbies or special interests? I'm an avid reader (you might have guessed that). I occasionally bead and write.
What sort of books do you enjoy reading? I have very eclectic taste. I'll read just about anything outside of fantasy. My favorite genre is fantasy though.
How did you find BookTalk.org? Google, I was looking for an online book community.

I look forward to getting to know everyone.

Hello Lurker!

Well, I for one, am glad you have stopped lurking and glad that you stumbled upon us via Google. Tennessee sounds so romantic to me....because when I was about 13years old, Davy Crocket was all the rage and I used to ride my bike up and down the road singing, 'Born on a mountaintop in Tennessee'.....

But you say you are currently in the UK.....Wet isn't it?? :welcome5:

Yes Tennessee sounds really exotic. Welcome and please comment. I find any comments differing from my opinion enlightening

All you need to do is look through the forums and find discussions that interest you. Then join the discussions. Simple stuff. I look forward to seeing you on the forums. ;-)
