    Winter Book Challenge

    Starting December 21, and ending on March 19, I'm having a book challenge for any and all interested to participate in. I had one for Autumn, but in case you have forgotten how it's done, here are the rules. Don't worry, they're not hard. To enter, pick four of the six categories below to complete, read the books of your choice pertaining to those chosen categories (you have to tell us what books they are and who wrote them), and try to be the first to finish your chosen books before Winter ends. Or if you choose, you can take a Level 2 challenge, and read books for all six categories. On March 19, we will all meet on here and talk about the books we've read (please, no spoilers!). Hopefully we get a better response this season than last. If this challenge is a hit with you folks, I'll try to do another one for Spring. I hope y'all have a blast!!! 1. Read a book with the words "snow" or "ice" in the title. 2. Read a book about an animal (or animals). 3. Read a non-fiction book. 4. Read a book that is a collection of short stories. 5.

    Books That Make You Cry

    I don't know about the rest of you, but for me I love reading moving books. Books that either leaving you smiling, laughing, or crying at the end of them are in my opinion some of the best. I just finished reading this book called Heller With A Gun written by Louis L'Amour, and it was terrific. The ending, though, was so sad and moving that tears actually came to my eyes, which has only happened like two or three times before from reading books. What books have you read that made you cry? Do you like those kinds of books?

    Ask A Bookworm

    I didn't see any threads like this here, so I thought I'd start one. If you are thinking of getting a book or reading a book, but don't know how it's going to be, you can just use this thread to ask about it, and if anybody on this forum has read it they can tell you what they liked, and/or what they didn't like, about the book in question, and also if it had any questionable content some people might be worried about. If nobody answers a post, that probably means that nobody here has read the book in question. But if you have read the book, please feel free to talk about it. I have a book on which I would like to know your opinions before reading it, called Troubling A Star, by Madeleine L'Engle. I have read her book A Wrinkle In Time, and did not end up liking it very much, but this one seems like it might be more my style. Has anybody here read it? What did they like/dislike about it?

    Teen Girl's Book Club!

    COOL TEEN BEANS BOOK CLUB: Girl's Only Edition Each month, we delve into a different literary universe. AKA, we read awesome books. We would love to have you as a member here and we will gladly welcome you with open arms! Not only do we read books monthly, we also function as an online group of friends. If you are interested in becoming a member, continue reading down below! ABOUT: Each month, we have each of you guys suggest up to 3 books for us to place into The Pot of Chance. Basically, The Pot of Chance is what we place all of the books in the running on slips of paper into. We then draw from the pot and whatever book comes out is what we read that month. Note: We do not allow overly bloody books, overly romantic books, or any books that are anti-Christian. Each month when we finish reading the book, we celebrate by hosting a big "bash" which includes contests, challenges, debates, games, and more! We also create separate topics to go to for specific things pertaining to the club. If you have any questions about the End-of-the-Month Bash, let us know. Feel free to write reviews on different books, whether we've already read them or not. You can also rate books, recommend or unrecomend them, and so forth. Please no spoilers about any books even if the club has already read them for the sake of any new members. NOTE: Spoilers are allowed at the End-of-the-Month Bash discussions. The club is not just for reading. You can also chat here! If you have any questions, please just ask! RULES: -You must be female and at least 13 years of age. If you are older than 17, you cannot join unless given special permissions for certain reasons. -No inappropriate language, which is probably pretty obvious since this is a Christian website. -No bullying!! We stress this more than any other rule, because, like we said earlier, we also act as a close group of friends. -No teasing, even if it is meant as a harmless joke. -No laughing at others' misfortunes. -No personal information (e.g, zip code, IP, email address, address, city, etc.) -No inappropriate content. -No violence. -No dating or flirting. If you break any of the above rules, you will be banned. HOW TO JOIN: Write a paragraph with your first name, age, favorite genre, favorite book, and anything else you want to add. All information must be included in one post, otherwise it does not count. If you do not pass the expectations/test, you are not allowed to join. By the way, we know we sound very strict, but usually we're pretty laid-back and good-natured! All of the "security" is just to keep everything in order. After you've joined, it gets extra silly and relaxed. We wanted to mention that certain people may be promoted to question answerers, moderators, or even staff. Staff's job is to help keep everything organized, such as the amount of members, the names of members, members' basic info, keeping everything under control at the bash, etc. HAVE FUN LADIES!!!
  7. I want to read the bible but I don't really know where to start. I usually just read psalms and proverbs. Or some random sporadic verses here and there. But if I want to read everything, how do I know where to start. Some say the new testament, but I'm just not sure where.... Please don't judge me for the fact I barely know all of the biblical stories. I've literally only completed Genesis, Exodus, Songs, Psalms, Proverbs, and Revelation. The rest of the stuff was so hard to understand and I get confused very easily so I give up. Sometimes I would literally look up the stories instead of reading them, because reading them is too confusing. I just want help :/ I want to read it all and be familiar, and able to understand. Please give me your input! -xoxo

    Books to read?

    This summer, I feel like I need to read more. So I have decided to make a little list of books to read. I tend to like gothic romance types, like vampire stuff and etc...yeah I know it is weird. I also like Christian books, like Melody Carlson for instance. feel free to suggest anything though.
  9. So I've been looking at my bookcase a lot lately and realizing that I have almost NOTHING to read for the summer and that [for me at least] is terrible. I'm a total book nerd so thinking about a whole summer without anything to read except for books I've already read is like torture. Do you guys have any favorite books? Books you would recommend? [i plan on making a trip to the library/bookstore sometime soon] books can be Christian or nonChristian, but I would prefer Christian although I'm really open to anything. Thanks!
