Thanks so much for your acceptation. I love almost all kind of novels, history books, philosophical and especially science philosophy books. Also as I am a psychologist, I love psychological books, indeed I do. So what about your favourite books?
P.S: but I just like to write stories:D
You're welcome redfish! Yes, the rotating peicture idea is a good one. Perhaps you could choose a member each month to send you a photo that they think best represents AUS and NZ or both. Just an idea. You don't have to do it if you don't want to. I'll make sure to direct to your group any Aussies or New Zealanders I find.
Hey redfishbluefish, I saw your post in the Discussion: Why do people join, then do nothing? It saddens me when a group is neglected especially one that is about the beautiful country of Australia. I'll join the group but I'm not sure I'll be able to add much for the moment.
Have you considered - searching for members on Shelfari who are from or are interested in Aus and NZ and inviting them to your group?
- a display picture. I must admit that I've seen the group before but I didn't join because of the lack of a display picture and discussions. I know it may seem silly but some people just won't join if there is no picture.
- More discussions. It's always great to come up with a lot of interesting discussions that everyone can relate to like 'your first Australian novel' or 'what you love about Australia and New Zealand. You could always visit Across The Pond group and replace the 'Britain' with 'Australia'. :)
That's all I've got for the moment but I hope it helps.
And I see that Tuesdays with Morrie is on your shelf. Have you read Albom's little novels? I prefer TwM, but they are sweet and good to read with my ESL students. By the way, I am mostly inactive on Shelfari but I do have my own reading blog at nliakos.wordpress.com. Check it out.
You did make it in time for the "Amanda's Read" vote. I have moved "March" to the #3 of my To Be Read list, thanks for the recommendation. Evidently, "The Book Thief" won the vote so it is first and second is a book I checked out of the library, a quick read.
Of course you're eligible! I really don't care who joins--English major/minor or not. In creating the group I was just trying to appeal to those who enjoy thinking analytically about works--you know, beyond the "I liked it" or "I wish it had ended like this" and so on.
