Content is collectively produced by the members of the group, and all member content is specifically sited to the individual when possible.

Otherwise, assume all blog content is strictly the opinion of the group founder and owner of this blog.

We focus on bookish challenges, discussions, hops, memes and reviews with occasional related giveaways.

This group is for... duh, casual readers. You don't have to be a hardcore bibliophile to fit in here.

We are a member-driven group that encourages our readers to choose the material read and discussed - for the people, by the people!

This is a read at your own pace kind of place. However, we are a book club with monthly group reads and challenges for our more dedicated readers.

Join us for casual discussions, friends & fun!


Be respectful or risk removal. Keep it classy, people. Expletives are tolerable, but blatant profanity is discouraged.
