Book club  
 I really love books. Really, really love them. I'm positive that most people here do too. :)
That's pretty much why we have sites like Goodreads.com to spread the love.

To be honest, I have this secret dream; to held my very own book club at my house. This dream stayed a dream, sadly. I love and appreciate the moments of meeting new people and sharing one thing we have in common, loving to read. Last night, I couldn't help but think if I should probably finally make it a dream come true by making an online book club instead.

I plan on doing it on a subdomain on Willowdust.org. The reason why I choose not to make it on LJ was because of the annoying advertisements they display on free accounts. However, also for the fact that not everyone has an LJ account and I really want to make my book club available to as many people as possible.
If the book club progresses successfully, I'll purchase a domain for it. *prays*

To clear any misunderstandings, I shall explain a brief information of this future book club:

Members are encouraged to post a review on a book they read. But be sure you search (I'll include the search form thingy on the sidebar) for the appropriate posts and confirm that the review have not yet been posted by someone else so that no double entires are published and also prevents any confusions. If they found a review that someone else had written but wish to express their own opinions as well, they should use the comment form.

When an outstanding member reaches a certain number of posted reviews (eg. 50), they'll receive a certificate and probably a badge. Each month, the admin(s) will pick top 3 book reviews to be featured on the sidebar for the rest of the month. Occasionally, I may hold a contest or a challenge with a few awards to give out. :D

All this are due subject to change. So yeah.

PSS: I'll only make this book club if there's anyone who'd kindly volunteer to become an admin as well. Feel free to leave a comment if you're interested. I'd prefer much more if I've known you before or if we've talked at least 5 times on LJ/Twitter, etc...

I think it's a beautiful idea, I really appreciate it. :) We haven't interacted much, so I'm afraid I won't be able to apply as admin. Besides, time constraint wouldn't allow me to do that :( But, I'll definitely join the book club as member. I hope you succeed in your plans. All the best! <33

Thank you! I'm so happy that you like it. ^_^

Actually, you are more than welcome to apply as admin because I know that I can trust you already (I was just worried a stranger was applying, that's all :D).

Unfortunately, it does consumes a lot of time in which you mentioned you might not be able to get. :(

On the other side, I was thrilled that you decided to be apart of the book club even as a member! *claps*
