*designed by RainbowWarrior. Star

Previously known as "The Reading Group", we are the 
Philomatheans! Star  Initially, we were just random people (who loved reading and discussing things on the internet), but then we got together and carved this little corner where little interference will cloud our brainwaves... 
The mode of operation is simple: we short-list books, vote for our favourites, read the chosen one and then spend aeons discussing the characters, the themes, the incidents and whatever else that catches our fancy (so, the stress is actually supposed to be on WHATEVER ELSE, everything else!)... 

Remember to click on the "play" button to see Nitzy's awesome video on US before you read through the selection of books up for voting...



(*Many, many free hugs to all you you!)

The reading group will shortly hold a vote on a book which we will discuss over the next days. The current top contenders are:
  • Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close - because a child's longing and yearning are precious.
  • Candide - because the human world is largely disutopian.
  • The Reader (Der Vorleser) - because human history is dark and provocative.
  • Three Cups of Tea - because we must hear out the message of love.
  • No One Loved Gorillas More - because all life is interrelated and it is not difficult to understand each other's language. 
  • East of Eden - because the choice is always in one's own hands, and not in the inherited genes. 
  • The Alchemist - because happiness is the result of a conspiracy of the Universe.
  • The Life of Pi - because we can choose the story we will believe.
  • A Long Way Down - because life is easy.
  • The Percy Jackson Series - because there is a hero in all of us .
We are currently reading:  Tongue

We'll be glad to welcome everybody on board, but please send a PM to one of the members to request an invitation. Currently we have many people on the list, but as the reading group settles, we'll try to adjust the head-count to a maximum of 12 people (so, those who don't participate, will be removed).

Currently WE include the following active readers:
  • Veritas
  • Axeion
  • Pinkisluv91 - the official link provider. Contact her for download links! Big smile
  • RainbowWarrior - the official siggy maker! LOL
  • Nitz17
  • Nuktacheen
  • Immunoblot
  • Sunandshine 
  • Ashrozia
HALL OF FAME: The  members who brought a lot of joy, but had to leave us because real life called them with more important assignments...
  • -Aladin- - who endeared her to us by LiKing even the most ordinary of our posts, who annoyed us like hell each time she fished out a quotation from JKR's trash-books, who humoured us with her cheerful spirit, and then broke our hearts when she left us for good. 
  • Amyria - who is taking longer than usual, to settle down in "Swades"
The following members are inactive:

  • BigBella
  • BluePandora
And the following visitors who may/may not join us(?):

okay, so they fixed the rule to some extent... i still can't seem to like Ekta's posts... apparently, i've reached the max limit... Angry
 
 
Sorry ! You can't like same User's post more than 25 times in last 24 hours.

 
how annoying are they...?  what's with this rigid controlling...?  lost their minds, they have...!!
 
in any case... i put a hold on East of Eden... Smile
 
new list... well, i was going to read the Chornicles of Narnia series and the books on Eragorn (because i saw the movie, lol), but i doubt that it'll provide any good discussion... it's more of a fun reading, by the looks of it....!   EmbarrassedEmbarrassed
 
i'm fine with anything you guys want to name... Big smile
