As I find myself using the internet even more to discuss books, I was wondering what others do to discuss their book love?
Obviously many of us have blogs, which is a great way to connect with other readers, authors, publishers and editors. But there are other avenues that a bibliophile can take as well.
Personally I started on Yahoogroups, which it seems aren't used much anymore. I'm a part of a couple of groups on there. My favorite by far, as the members have become like family to me over the last few years, is MostlyBooks.
Mostly Books is a great group where there are a few people who just love to talk about books, but also realizes that books aren't the only thing happening in our lives. (While we may wish it was). I've been a member for a few years now, and as I said before the groups members are like a family to me. I love them all dearly. If you are ever looking for a place to make awesome friends and learn a lot about books and many more topics, this group is for you.

There are also websites like Goodreads, where you can discuss books, and share what you are reading. Sites like this have an awesome amount of extras (my personal favorite is that I can put in how many pages I am into a book at it calculates how much more I have to read).
Some of us may even be a part of face to face book groups. I started one recently that only has 3 people that come, but we have fun and we really enjoy our time together chatting. It's run a bit like Mostlybooks is, in that if the topic strays from books there is no one feeling like we're horribly off topic.
So, the point of this post is to ask, how do you discuss your books? Online, email, face to face?
While I'm here, I want to welcome yet another blogger into our little world. Please check out Euphoric Thoughts of a Eukaryote. She's a good friend of mine with some fun stuff to talk about!
Have a great Sunday everyone!
