What authors, books define you, make you think, make you laugh?

I can't say there's a specific book or author that defines me, but part of that is because I read so much. The book that probably defines me if I had to pick one is called Ghost girl. The characters in that book especially the protagonist really reminded me of myself and Di cried just because I knew what it felt like to be her. And P.S. I Love you really made meaugh and cry like a baby, which I read long before the movie even had previews. But I would say the book that I will always remember and became most emotionally involved in was Steven King's The Talisman, also written by Peter Straub. I was so in log with certain characters before I even knew what was going to happen I would find myself putting the book down, crying like a baby and wanting to just skip a few pages and see the end of it. I am seriously glad I didn't now but I was that attached and to me that makes a good book.

What do you hope to get out of the club?

I hope to be able to discuss the books that I have read to knowledgeable people who actually care about what i have to say and I hope to make nor friends with similar interests.

Describe a successful discussion.

When members can go back and forth and give feedback on someone's comment in a helpful manner. When everyone can enjoy themselves and feel open to speak and comfortable in their surroundings.

Are you a talker? Listener? Icebreaker? All or noneof the above?

I am usually a listener, but if you give me the right topic I can talk like nobody's business.
