Are you a reader or a writer? I'm more of a reader, but when I do write it tends to be more poems.
Is there anything special you would like to see on this board? Would be fun if we all participated in a story. Like a 3 word story, where every person can only post 3 words, and the next person has to continue on.
Is there anything else you want us to know? um... i'm a bit of a blogger at the moment. Blog is in my siggie.

What's your favorite genre? Uh, I don't know I like a lot, right now I'm into history books because of the classes I'm taking. I like Harry Potter's,Dragon Lance, Sookie Stackhouse novels, Abarat series, Dean Koontz' Odd series, Edge Chronicles, and many others.
Are you a reader or a writer? Or both? I read and write, though more reading now than anything else, the only things I've written lately are essays for class.
Is there anything special you would like to see on this board?I don't really know what else can be added, I haven't been here in a while.
Is there anything else you want us to know? My favorite book of all time is The Giver by Lois Lowry. I'm a stay at home mom to 3 kids (8, 6, 14 months), I'm a full time college freshman History major. If I'm not on, I'm super busy with classes.

Jan is almost over... but Im here

Name: Lesha
Birthday: August 25

What's your favorite genre? I like everything... really. I love anything with faeries or aliens... action.. mystery, thrilling.. adventure... just not plain ole love, I can handle love mixed in with other stuff... like if Twlight was just about Bella being in love with her vampire stalker and there were no werewolves or killers after them, I would have hated it.

Are you a reader or a writer? Or both? both!

Is there anything special you would like to see on this board? I was going to say a place for writers.. but I see there is one!! I gotta go check that out!!! wow!

I too would like to see this board more active. Thats why I kinda fell out of it in the first place.. but Jenn reeled me in! Great host there.

I dont like that there is a twilight discussion sticky, because its gets lost in the posts.. and its hard to back track through posts... id rather there be a board.. or we just ask random twilight stuff on the main board... since its not as phenonomal as it was at first... thats just me though...

and I love Matildas idea of a story for everyone to write.

Is there anything else you want us to know?

I have twitter, FB and Myspace, yet I only tweet and it updates my status on all three. Im lazy... lol

Im writing a brutally long twilight fan fic....

I have written and havent finished a childrens book. (too involved in my twilight fan fic.. lol im sad...)

Im mommy to two boys, Stone and Mason who are 14 mths apart and drive me mad... but as Jenn said, I guess I'll keep them.

Congrats Arya!!

Cheezepoofs, I loved the left behind series! really made me think... exspecially now that times are getting hard....

I think they are good books, but I am an atheist; so the religion/ theology in them are a bit tedious for me. I knew this about the series before I picked it up to read again. I had started it years ago and never made it through to the end. I want to finish the series; but because I can't remember the first eleven books, I have to reread them before I can read the last one (or however many more there are - there are a few pre and sequels that have been added). I do enjoy the non-religious portions of the book and think they are pretty captivating.

Thanks for the "come on back" Jenn! I'll try and check in here more often.

Name:Talia
Birthday:Jan 12th
What's your favorite genre? young adult (even though I'm 35)
Are you a reader or a writer? Or both? BOTH
Is there anything special you would like to see on this board? Just more participation.
Is there anything else you want us to know? I have 5 girls (the 5th one is only 3 weeks old), cohost the Moms of Girls board, I love reading, I love writing. I am not too good at punctuation. I love to write young adult drama. Not sure if I'll ever get published, but I enjoy writing it anyway.

I love the Twilight series. I also loved the Left Behind series. I have lots of books on my shelves that I enjoy reading more than once. I would rather buy a book then borrow from the library.

Guess that's about it

Oh, I do have a blog - mainly pregnancy and baby related stuff right now. I do have FB - but I like to know a person at least a little before adding them. Feel free to PM me if I disappear. Sometimes I just forget to check other boards.
