Hello friends, family, and fellow book-lovers, and welcome to my new blog - Mostly Novels. I am always reading a book (or 2, or 3...) and I always want to discuss these books with other people, but don't always have the opportunity to do so. My hope is that this blog will serve as a meeting place for people, like me, who want to discuss not only their personal reactions to the books they've read, but also the philosophical, historical, or cultural implications behind those texts. In this kind of modern book club we don't have to read the same books at the same time. Instead, using my tags, you will be able to pop on over to Mostly Novels anytime and look up the books you've just read, peruse my two cents on the matter, and add your own ideas in the comments section. You could also check out what people have to say about the books you're thinking about reading before making the commitment to open that first page. However you decide to use it, I hope that Mostly Novels will enrich your reading experience, and that we can develop a genuine community that encourages intellectual, yet ego-free, discussion. Welcome to Mostly Novels! Let's get started!
