Hi, I would just like to introduce myself. I'm Carameldelite ( usually go by cara). I've been trying to join some kind of book club for the past year, just haven't had the chance to or the time. Well this is my last year in Uni, and I don't plan on going to school this summer to I'll have lots of free time (that's if work doesn't take the remainder of it). Anyway, Hi again everyone and I hope I'd be able to participate in y'all's (hehe sorry about my Texan language) next discussion.

I learned about Booktalk when searching for a summary on the book Future Shock by Alvin Toffler. I had to critique it for my psychology course and found it rather boring. I was wondering if I was the only person who felt this way. Funny thing is, a lot of you all did and even stopped in the same place I did. (Chapter 5). Long story short, my critique wasn't a very positive one

Hello, Cara!I wish I could tell you waht I thought of Futureshock, but they read it before I joined up. :\LIke Chris said, if you find you don't have a lot of free time, just hit the chats...that's all I've been doing lately, much to my chagrin.

Wow! It's interesting to see how each member originally found BookTalk, but to hear that Future Shock was the bait that caught you is remarkable. That book didn't generate much discussion a few years back when we were in our infancy. Then again...I never even got a copy of it. We were still struggling to figure out what our focus would be.I hope you decide to stick around. Check out our Books page to get an idea of the types of books we've read in the past, and to see if you think your reading tastes would be satisfied with this lineup.Again, welcome to the community.
