emoticon Jennifer! You will find lots of suggestions for books on the "what are you reading" and "books read" threads on the general discussion forum. We also have 2 books we are discussing this month and would love to have you join in if you're interested. A new monthly challenge has also started which is a great way to stay accountable and motivated. Looking forward to getting to know you better.
P.S. Chicka-Chicka-Boom-Boom brings back memories~the days of children's books will be gone before you know it :)

Hi everyone, New here. My name is Jennifer, I am a married mother of two boys, working retail. I am so excited to find a book club on here. I really need help finding good books to read and to talk to others who like reading as much as I do - my children are young and there must be more to life than chicka-chicka-boom-boom.

The most important thing is to keep trying. You never hear a real success story ending in "and I sat on the couch the whole time."

You will find the threads under the general discussion forum. We also have 2 books to discuss this month if you're interested. Good luck on your spark journey and getting back to your goal weight. That's where I'm at, too.

Hiya Sparkpeeps! I'm new to the team but not new to Spark. My name is Daisy, I'm an avid reader (I usually aim to read 100 books a year) and I even work in a library so I think I'm fairly lucky in that department, lol! I've been on Spark for five years now and I hit goal weight in 2010 but then regained some of the weight so I'm trying to get my head back in the game. All in all I think I might love this team! Good to meet you all!

Happy to be here! I teach reading to High School and JR High students. Reading and writing are my favorite activities. I read a large variety of genres and topics from YA lit to classics. I love Shakespeare. emoticon

emoticon Mare and Gypsylady! We are so glad you've joined our team! We would love to hear about the books you are reading either on the "what are you reading" thread or the "books read" thread.

Mare~50 books in a year is great! My goal is to read more books than I did the year before. Good luck getting through your to-be-read pile :)

Gypsylady~I *try* to read at night, but usually fall asleep after one page~lol! I love that you've found a series that fits both your favorite genres :)

Hi Everyone. I'm pretty much the same avid reader and writer as the majority of all of you are. I read every night before I go to bed. It helps my brain to shut down and I love all the vivid dreams I have. I tend to lean toward the horror and fantasy genre, but really no genre is safe from these word devouring eyes of mine. I love them all, depends on my mood. Right now its fantasy and post apocalyptic books that have my eye and right now I'm reading an anthology of post apocalyptic fantasy stories, how cool is that!?
I'm new to this forum and have been a sparks member for a while but haven't really gotten serious, serious about it like I should. So that's why I'm hear. To make myself accountable. So this is the first day of the rest of my life.

Hi my fellow bibliophiles! I'm Mare and I've been deemed a bookworm since I was a kid. I love writing and reading. I'll read any genre - fiction or nonfiction - depending on my mood or if someone recommends a book. Since starting my weight loss journey at the end of August though, I haven't been making the time for reading like I used to unless it was a must-read book. I'm currently working to get back on track. I used to be able to read at least fifty books a year.

My reading goal this year is to read what's been sitting on my book shelves in my never-ending to-read pile. I kept putting it aside for library books and now I'm determined to get through them.

emoticon Retireesmith! It sounds like you are enjoying your retirement, but still keeping busy. My hubby just cut back some at work, but we are still quite a way from retirement. I usually have several books going at once, too. I try to read our monthly book, but I don't always finish them before the month is up. I hope you'll join in the discussion once it gets going~it's a fun way to get to know our fellow team members. Looking forward to getting to know you better!

Hello, Fellow-Readers,

I'm loving combining reading and getting healthy. I've been retired--from secondary education--for 4 years now and am enjoying focusing on improving my quality of life by becoming healthier and spending more time reading. I'm part of several reading groups on goodreads.com, so I always have 3-5 books going at a time; don't always finish them--too many good ones to "force" myself to finish one--but that doesn't mean I won't go back and try again; different books speak to me at different times.

I live in Illinois and am married--my husband retired this year--and we have one daughter, now in her mid-20's. I really enjoy her.

I look forward to being a part of this team and participating in the monthly reads as I am able to.
Thank you for your warm welcome.

Dbeau~Do you still read a lot of books at one time? I usually have 2-4 going at once.

Claudia~How sweet to be married to your Jr. High sweetheart :) I'm sure you are passing on your love for reading to your little ones! Hope our online book club will work for you.

Absit~We have a lot of avid readers on our team. You can get great ideas from the "what are you reading" thread or "books read" thread. Be sure to let us know what you're reading, too.

Looking forward to getting to know you all! Happy reading!

Hello all, I just joined both sparkpeople and the team. I'm currently living in New Orleans (and presently listening to a Mardi Gras parade). I work as a zookeeper and read whenever I can find the time. I've been in love with reading since 8th grade and haven't gone anywhere without a book since. I'm looking forward to finding new books and authors to explore.

Hi everyone! I'm new to this team but not to Sparkpeople. To be honest, I'm not even sure how I was subscribed to this forum but I'm so glad that I am! I'm a mother of a 7 year old and a 2 month old. I've been married to my junior high sweetheart for 8 years. I absolutely love reading! I've tried to participate in a local book club in my area (Charlotte, NC) but have found no luck so this is going to be a great opportunity for me. I work in the HR field and love what I do. I look forward to hearing from all of you and being able to participate in great discussions. Happy Reading!

Hi, I'm new to this team. I am a retired elementary teacher and am now tutoring. I volunteer at one of our city museums. I have always been an avid reader. As a child it was not unusual for me to have anywhere from 2 to 8 books going at one time.

We have some other avid readers here with a variety of tastes. We also started a new thread for "books read" so people can post reviews of the books they've finished each month. There is also a new challenge each month. It's not too late to join for Jan if you're interested. We are looking forward to getting to know you better.

Hi I am new to the team, but not to Spark. My name is Jacque. I live in Colorado, am the mother of 3, a special education teacher and I am an avid reader. I have to read everynight before going to bed or I can't sleep. I have been finding myself looking for new titles to read and am hoping to hear about some good reads here. I have requested from the library both of the books you are reading this month and the first one I get will be the one I read first. They both sound interesting. I am an introvert and I make way too many excuses. I look forward to getting to know you all and I wish you luck with your goals.

So happy to have you join our book club! We are discussing 2 books this month, so be sure to check out the discussion threads if you are interested in joining. Also, we have a monthly challenge which is a fun way to stay accountable and we'd love to have you participate in that, too.

CMCGUIRE~I love that you read a variety of books! I am reading Pride and Prejudice right now and confess that I am having a hard time with it. I LOVE the movie, but the book is taking me awhile to get through. I won't give up, though :)

DOILIEQUEEN~I am usually involved in a Bible study, too. I especially like Beth Moore and some of her books are free on Kindle right now.

My name is Michelle and I'm from Southwest Colorado. I've been on SparkPeople off and on (more off) the last few years. Started back yesterday and joined this group today.

I enjoy reading books about the Amish. Beverly Lewis and Wanda Brunstetter are my favorite authors on that subject. Also love reading Bible study books.

Currently I am reading "Freedom From Your Past" by Jimmy Evans and Ann Billington. Actually I'm re-reading. Didn't read it all the way through from Bible study class.

Hi everyone!

I'm Colleen. Like all of you, I love to read. Jane Austen is my absolute favorite author. I've read most of hers numerous times, and have finally read Persuasion and Mansfield Park for the first time this year (definitely NOT my last time either!). I also love the Harry Potter series (grew up with Harry, Ron, and Hermoine). I'm also into historical fictions (Susan Higginbotham), and Dan Brown books. I recently saw the Mortal Instruments movie, which has sparked my interest in reading that book series. Here's hoping I get a Barnes & Noble gift card for Christmas so I can add that to my Nook Library :)

emoticon Greeneyes_42! We are so happy to have you join our team! My reading life sounds similar to yours...I devoured books as a child/teenager, but not so much during college/early married life. Then I went to nursing school in my 30's and didn't read for pleasure for another 5 years~lol! Now I am back on the reading bandwagon. Be sure to check out the "what are you reading" thread for some great ideas for books. Be sure to let us know what you are reading, too. Enjoy your new Nook! Looking forward to getting to know you better! Happy reading and sparking :)

Hi everyone! I have been reading since I was a child. Loved the Nancy Drew books as a kid. In my 20's, I went through a period of Dean Koontz. I didn't read all that much in my 30's but have been pretty active with it in my 40's. I like fiction... horror as in Koontz, romance as in Sparks, and have been reading a few Dr. Wayne Dyer books which I have found very thought provoking!!

I ordered a Nook on Monday and it will be here next week. That will be a little different but I'm looking forward to it. I've been perusing the Barnes and Noble website for my first Nook book purchase. I think I'll try a totally different genre for something out of the ordinary for me emoticon

Hello:) I've been off and on SparkPeople over the past few years. Giving it a go and hoping that the 3rd time will be the charm:) I'm an avid reader and book blogger. I read almost all fiction genres except horror and westerns and have actually started reading some YA over the past few years...never read it when I actually was a Young Adult! I love talking books and am excited to find this group!

Hi All,

Well what can I say? I like to read! I just finished The Twelve from Justin Cronin and am ready to start something new. I mostly read high fantasy and sci-fi but occasionally enjoy thrillers, westerns, and non-fiction such as history and astronomy/astrophysics. I am also an amateur writer and am working on a novel of my own.

I had the privilege of moonlighting at Barnes & Nobel for a year and enjoyed being around the books but my main job became too hectic so I had to quit.

Looking forward to meeting new people and giving and receiving support to become a fit and healthy person!

Discipline is remembering what you want.

emoticon Lairin, Sonya and Kimb3rl33!
We are so happy to have you join our team! We have some avid readers here and you can get some great ideas for books on the "What are you reading" thread. We are taking suggestions for our December book and will be voting soon, so be sure to join in if you'd like to.

Lairin~It sounds like you have to do some heavy reading for school! Glad you can take a break with some lighter stories. When I was in school, I didn't have any time for outside reading and I missed it terribly. Sounds like you've found a balance :)

Sonya~I joined goodreads, but I haven't done anything on my account. I do go there to get suggestions for books, though. I also love the library, but since I got my kindle, I don't go as often.

Kimb3rl33~I don't know if I've ever read a book in one sitting~lol! I am not the fastest reader and I find I can't sit still that long, but I like to read all kinds of books, too. That's one of the main reasons I joined this book club~to challenge me to read out of my comfort zone.

Happy reading and sparking to all of you!

Hi everyone! I'm new to Spark People & saw this group and just had to join. I love to read, the last thing I read was The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. It was great and I read it in one sitting. I will read just about anything as long as it catches my attention. My favorite book of all time though is a tie between To Kill a Mockingbird & The Scarlet Letter. I read both in school, but they just stuck with me. Looking forward to getting to know you guys!

Hey,
my name is Lairin and I'm a 25 years old student (history and english) where I've to read tons of stuff. Mostely (because I specialized on forced labor and gender studies) most of them is full of rape, blood and unfair behavior. One of the reason I love to read "lighter" lectures like Terry Pratchett or AJ Jacobs in my freetime. :)
have a nice day

Hi! I am Mollie, a 27 year-old college graduate who is returning to school to advance my career. I don't allow myself much time for leisure reading as I have a toddler and a job that keep me quite busy. I am looking to get back between the pages of some good reads, and I can't think of a better motivator than joining this group!

emoticon OXYGEN9 & KATONDECK! We are so glad you've joined our team! There are many other fellow kindle users (including me) here. I have about 4 books going right now :)

OXYGEN9~I also love crime fiction, but haven't read any for awhile. Have you read the Sue Grafton books? Her books are titled through the alphabet and she just released W is for Wasted. You can also find a lot of suggestions under the "What are you reading" thread. Be sure to include your books, too.

KATONDECK~There are a lot of avid readers here and lots who use goodreads. I am kind of new to goodreads (signed up for an account, but not much else), but I will check out your link. I have also always loved reading, but as I've gotten older, I'm much more distracted and not as fast of a reader. I always have at least 2 books going at a time, though :)

Check out the team page and join in wherever you are comfortable. I have found the more I post and get involved, the more connected to the spark community I feel. Looking forward to getting to know both of you better!

I forgot to post to this thread!

Hi Constant Readers! I'm Kat in Boise, ID and I prefer to read than do most anything else. Mostly that means I have a very dirty house. :)

I've loved to read for about 35 years, now. Never EVER had to MAKE me read a book. Parents had a hard time getting me OUT to interact and play with other kids.

Husband bought me a Kindle for my bday 2 bdays ago and I haven't looked back! In fact, I've found myself momentarily confused as to how to turn the page in a REAL book. Boy did I feel silly!

I have a very wide range of reading interests. I am on Goodreads, and there's way more info there. Find me and add me if you'd like! https://www.goodreads.com/prosserkat


Well behaved women rarely make history.

We are so glad you've joined our team! We look forward to getting to know you both better. Check out the vote for November's book discussion and consider joining the monthly challenge, too. Nothing is too high pressure, but it's a fun way to stay accountable and active on the team :)

CAGOSSNER~I also love reading YA books and I'm 45. I think it started when my daughter was young and she wanted to read "older" books and I wanted to preview them first. I find many of them very well written. I have a kindle with several books going at the same time. I'm not a fast reader, but I feel like I read a lot that way~lol!

XPHOENIX~Wow! An author among us! That is quite an accomplishment. And 100 lb loss is a huge accomplishment as well! So happy you are in remission and have the clearance to get back to some of your healthy routines.

Hi! I'm an author and NOT new to SparkPeople what so ever, but have been out of the loop forever and wanted a way to drag myself back in...so.. here I am :)

I write mostly paranormal, but some mystery, romance, historic, etc. I just started writing last year and have two solo novels and 6 others I have participated in. Woot! I have so much on my plate WORK wise that I tend to forget to take time for me and that has to change.

Over the course of 18 months, I lost over 100 pounds and then got Cancer (gallbladder). I've been off the wagon (so to speak) for ages, it feels like, but my doctor gave me the green light to workout (6 months in remission YAYYYY!!) when I want to now AND I am able to eat normal food again, so... let's DO THIS!!!!

Hello! I'm a Kindle reader addict (haha) but I still lovelovelove to read actual books, I just don't get to buy them much anymore since the Kindle ones are usually so much cheaper for me. I like contemporary fiction and YA and some fantasy/fiction, my favorite stuff is usually the dystopian future stuff from the YA genre (like Hunger Games or Divergent) or the YA dystopian alternate realities that someone seem to feel like the Middle Ages (LOL - like Graceling or Throne of Glass), but if I had to pick just one thing to say that I love to read it would be the Harry Potter series.

I know, I know, I sound young, but I'm actually 42! LOL I am married to the love of my life (our 4-year anniversary is next month) and we live in San Jose where he works for a tech company and I stay home (due to knee issues I can't get out much).

Anyway, I hope this is an active board that communicates a lot! :)

Happy Friday everyone! :)

I have a collection of series in Mass Market Paperback, but just recently started reading on some romance and mystery a little while back when I downloaded my ebook Kindle Cloud Reader. Browsing some Teams and came across this one that I'm hoping can give me some ideas of good reads. I'm looking forward w/getting to know the Team and definitely appreciate any extra support a Team can help me w/along my journey for a healthier lifestyle...

I'm from Canada too, like so many here, I see. Living in Calgary. Read a lot of biographies lately so I need new ideas. Have your book Joyland on request at the library but the other one, Where Darkness Dwells, isn't listed yet.

Hello everyone!

I am Kristen, from Nova Scotia, Canada. I have been on SparkPeople for a while now but only recently decided it was time to join some teams and take part in the benefits of the community on this site!

I have been an avid reader since I first learned how to read. Everywhere I go I have a book with me and often have three or four books on the go at any given time!

Look forward to getting to know my fellow team mates!

Cheers!

Hi there. I'm Lenore from Vancouver, Canada and I've been on Spark for about 18 mos and have lost about 30 lbs.

I have always been a reader; primarily SF and Fantasy. Right now I'm working my way through the "Top 25 Best Fantasy Books" www.bestfantasybooks.com/top25-fantasy-boo
ks.php
. I've discovered a lot of wonderful books on this site. I keep meaning to move on to the Top 25 Best SF Books, but they keep changing and adding new books to the Fantasy site, so there is always just one more I have to read!

I recently switched to mainly e-books. After trying a couple of Kobo readers (the Canadian Kindle), both of which died on me, I've started reading books on my Android smartphone. It took some getting used to, but now I think it's a great way to read. The main drawback is that it is entirely too easy to buy new books and my book budget is out of control!

Looking forward to chatting about books with you all.

Hi, I'm Liz from the San Francisco Bay Area. Love to read and am looking forward to being on this team.

Currently reading a debut novel "The Thinking Woman's Guide to Real Magic" about a young woman unhappy with her life. She wishes for a different life and oh boy does she ever get it. Well written fun novel.

Will it be easy? Nope. Will it be worth it? Absolutely.

Hi all! I live in Philadelphia and since we've gotten rid of cable, I've been reading like crazy! I belong to a book club in the city; I love to talk about books that I wanted to add another book club to the mix.

Hi there! I am Sherrie and I've been back at SP for a little over a month now. I love to read, so am looking forward to being part of this team and getting to know everyone!
I belong to a book club that I attend monthly and really enjoy it. I am also on Goodreads if anyone is interested in hooking up there, just let me know.
Check out my Spark Page too for all my other info :)

Hope to get to know some of you soon!

Hi everyone! I am new to the team and SparkPeople. I used to be a member of a local book club, but it folded in May. I am very excited to be part of one again! I love reading new things I would have never picked up, even if they are not my style.

Hello Everyone!
I'm 27 years old,from BC Canada.
I'm excited to be a part of this group! I think it'll be good for me to branch out and not stick to the fitness and health pages.
So, looking forward to starting :)

Hey everyone! My name is Mariah; I'm 23 and trying to lose about 25 pounds.
I just discovered this book club and am really excited about it. I was in a book club about a year ago and I really loved it. I have a few books on my shelf that I just haven't had the motivation to start reading so this should give me the push I need!

Hi! I'm a major bookworm and have a bedroom full of good reads (hardly any room for me). I love scifi fantasy but won't limit it to that only. I've got about 80 pounds to lose and I'm happy to be here.
