Welcome to another week of Tuesday Thingers! We always love to hear from regular participants as well as new people.
Sorry for posting this late!! I had my surgery last week and so far everything looks good. . . but I took a little longer to recover than I expected, and I didn't realize that yesterday was Monday! Oops. ;)
This week, I'd like to take a quick peek into the Groups section. For anyone who hasn't visited the groups section, it is a place that is very much like a normal forum, or a place you can post comments and reply to what others have posted. Some groups are topic oriented, and others are more relaxed. LT has sections for Standing Groups (I think this means that they were created by LT and will always be available), Groups with the Most Members, Most Active Talk, Member Projects, etc.
The great thing about these groups?? If you want to talk about a book or author, there is probably a group or thread available for you to read, join, or comment in. There are even some great Book Challenges (75 Books Challenge for 2009)!! You can read about a group and then read the "threads" (topics/conversations), join the group, watch the group, or recommend it to a friend.
When you join or watch a group, you can have it show up on your home page on LT if you haven't taken it off your settings (mine shows up under my Connection News).
Questions: Have you recently browsed any of the groups? Are you actively participating in any groups? Do you have any favorites?
My Answer: I actually haven't checked out any of the groups lately. When I first joined LT, I found the ARC Junkies, and Freebies, Book Giveaways and Contests groups to be very helpful in getting some great new books!
I used to be very active in those two groups, and would like to become active again in the near future - I just need to catch up on some of my reviews first!!
I'd have to say those two, plus one other, Bloggers, have been very helpful and would be my favorite groups.
Looking forward to reading everyone's answers!!
