Queer Book Club

Posting Access:
All Members , Moderated
Hi, welcome to the first/currently the only queer book club on LJ. We'll read and discuss two books a month; members are welcome to read either, both, or neither, but ideally this will be an active forum for people to broaden their knowledge of queer fiction and have some fun reading cool books. :) Membership is open and posting is unmoderated. When you join, please make an introductory post stating any general info about you that you'd like us to know, plus: a few of your favorite queer books, why they're your favorites, which subgenres of queer lit you're most interested in reading, and which authors or books you'd like to see come up for discussion here in forthcoming months. I (slammerkinbabe) will decide which books wind up in each month's selection poll, but I'd like to be drawing from a wide base of suggestions from members; and after I post the poll, of course all members are encouraged to vote, and so you'll have the final say over each month's pick.

I think that's it. Thanks for stopping by!
