Readerville.com, an online community based around books and reading to which I've belonged from the beginning, is celebrating its eighth anniversary today. That's a long time for an online group! There's new book-related content every day and a vibrant forum component full of people who will alternately make your day or make you crazy. We've already had a Readerville marriage and at least two moving-in-togethers, so you never know what will happen, other than that books you wanted but have no memory of ever ordering magically appear in your mailbox, because it turns out someone at Readerville had a copy and sent it to you.
I've befriended quite a few Readervillians in person: I've hiked into the Grand Canyon with one, I've sipped a crawfish-garnished Bloody Mary with another, and I witnessed yet another one hurl a martini shaker into a poison oak-lined ravine in the redwoods, where it remains to this day, a rusty shell still holding half a margarita. I spent a magical afternoon watching the sun set over a Napa vineyard (after it was closed to the public!) with three others, all of us sipping wine and eating cheese. Needless to say, I can no longer keep track of how many I've been hung over with.
I highly recommend you stop by and look around. I'm sure you'll find something - or someone - that engages you. Anyway, here's a little cheat sheet to help you get started. Feel free to print it out and laminate it.
