Some time ago, we visited Readergirlz during a Weekend Site-Seeing trip, and I mentioned how I wanted to join their club and talk books with them. I’ve been slow to get on board for a number of (I think) very good reasons:
- I often can’t get books in time to read them for the discussion, even though they are listed a month in advance. I need to plan ahead, like, six months or more. (I live over the hill beyond the boonies.)
- The discussion forum is on MySpace, and I don’t have a MySpace account.
- Blah, blah, blah.
Clearly, now’s the time, what with the Meg Cabot jag I’ve been on and my improved proficiency with Facebook–which is MySpace-like, right? So I should be able to figure it out, right? Right? I’ve actually read How To Be Popular, and have it on hand so that I can read it again now.
So yesterday I joined MySpace and the Readergrlz forum on MySpace. This is my MySpace pic. How’s that for a book-talk look? MySpace is the usual overwhelming where-am-I-and-what-is-this? experience, but I’m on my way.
Funny thing: They gave me a friend upon joining. Some guy named Tom. I guess they don’t want anyone to feel friendless at MySpace.
Anyone want to come along? We can figure out MySpace together.
Got a question you want me to ask Meg Cabot?
Maybe I’ll ask the Divas if I can get an advance list of books they’ll be reading. That’s going to be the sticky wicket right there.
