I log on every day, but am another who is not going through the best time, and finding energy to write thoughtful posts often eludes me...but I have been conscious of how quiet it is.  I don't mind that as much as some do, but I don't want us to fade away!

Sandra, I wondered what happened to Bookfreak too (though had always thought he was a she!).  We have had some new people join, but not much new posting - if newbies are reading this, do jump in!

I always thought bookfreak was a she, too!

The problem with these quiet spells (and they do pass) is that for someone like me who is around and not having particular difficulties is that there aren't discussions to bounce one's ideas or reading off much.  I can write about what I am reading, but it takes me a while to read a book, so that isn't enough.  

But people will be back - they always are.  Would be good to see new people contributing but some like to lurk a while before taking the plunge.  (Unlike me, who immediately thinks my thoughts are worth others knowing!)

Cheers, Caro.

I'm so sorry, county lady. I hope you are not unwell. I am as guilty as anyone else of coming here to lurk rather than post but I generally feel what I read is not anything very interesting. I do post if something has struck me or if it is for my reading group - really hoping someone might give me an insight into the volume so that I have something to say!  Embarassed

I always look for your posts Apple - I'm looking forward to the new Charlaine Harris and I think you and I are the only people here who enjoy her books

Thank you Ann thats nice to know! I think we probably are the only ones who like those books, but never mind its good to be different! Wink but yes my copy is pre ordered ready for its release in May.  

Although I have to say, the books she has weritten since the release of the Trueblood TV series have almost seemed to me like they are written with the series in mind and how they will translate to the TV (although the series doesn't generally stick to the plot) she has said book thirteen will be the last and I just hope it doesn't go out with a wimper like her Harper Connelly stories, they were so good but it was almost as if in the last book she had totally lost interest in the character and just wanted to tie up the loose ends quickly and be done with it.
