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 New Kid on the BookTalk.org Block
Hello, People.

I'm an avid reader of the female variety who lives south of the Mason-Dixon line in the U.S. I found BookTalk.org Googling for an online book club/discussion group. How delightful to find such a wonderful organization.

Once upon a yesterday, I read fiction, fiction, and more fiction -- mysteries and sci-fi. However, my life has changed rather dramatically over the previous six years (during which time my reading diet consisted almost exclusively of professional "stuff"). Now that I have returned to a more balanced life style, I seem to have an appetite for non-fiction: political, cultural, neurobiology, and house/garden handyman print.

Special interests include traveling (Europe, the South Pacific, etc.), gardening, and -- new interest -- figuring out how I can live on a beer budget when I still obviously have champagne tastes. :)

I look forward to participating in some stimulating discussions!

Welcome to booktalk.

If you haven't seen it yet, since you mentioned neurobiology maybe you'd be interested in the current top pick for our non-fiction poll, Evolutionary Psychology

Thanks for the info. I voted for your suggestion. As a matter of logistics, when and how do new people find out if the books they are interested in will actually be discussed in the following months?
