Welcome to Barb's Books & Chat (II)
AUTHORS: NO POSTING OF BOOKS OR PROMOTING OF BOOKS.
NO DROP INS TO MENTION YOUR BOOK OR A FRIEND'S BOOK
All participants should be here as book readers and discussers--we'd like to get to know everyone as a reader, although authors
are welcome, of course and we have several authors chat on this thread.
Mysteries are our main discussion topic, but any book talk in the
following genres is welcome:
Mystery, Thriller, Suspense and Crime
Police Procedural, Private Eye and Forensics
Classic literature, Historical Fiction, Fantasy,
Humor, Biography and Romance
Tell us what you are reading, what you have enjoyed, or what
you put down and won't pick up again!
Off Topic conversation is definitely Welcome but we don't want
it taking over the thread. So let's shoot for a 50/50 mix of books
and Off Topic. That doesn't mean you have to mention a book
in every post. Some posts will be all book and others all chat.
We're looking for BALANCE where a full page on the thread
will be half books and half chat. Some of us read a book a day
or a week, some have less time to read. But we all have
something to say and want to join the conversation!!!
We are friends with families, pets, complicated lives and
everyday hassles. Sometimes we just need to vent and need a
friend to listen...this is the place!!!
Rules are few, but we would appreciate compliance:
*Please ALL CAPS to show book titles
*No discussions or comments on politics or religion
*No private blog pushing or other Amazon thread promoting.
******* Treat others with respect and courtesy. *******
**** We can disagree without arguing or getting ugly****
Authors Please REMOVE your book title from your signature.
We have seen authors posting 5 times a day with their book
title under their profile name as a way of advertising. If you
are an interesting poster other members will look up your
profile and then see that you are an author.
