I have just taken over as Administrator of the BOOKS nation and I have made it an open nation so that all can join. People who enjoy reading should be able to join at any time they would like.
This nation had gone unattended for a long time because there was no active administrator. The duties of a nation admin are to serve as moderator of the discussions; but they also need to keep an updated member list.
When I got the nation there were 533 members listed; as I went down the list I saw that there were "members" who haven't been on the vine since 2008!
So, I weeded the member list and kept only those who have been here sometime in 2014. If anybody returns who has been away prior to 2014 then they are free to rejoin at any time. We went from 533 down to 319.
I feel that this nation will be better because the members are more current and I am hoping to attract new members who will be more active contributors. Invites will be sent out shortly.
Please consider joining and contributing "book reports" on any subject matter. There are very enlightening and educational discussions to be had just because someone read a book (or a nook or a kindle, etc.)
**UPDATE** Unfortunately, due to the excessive amount of spammers who came through the door overnight, I have to make this nation "Gated" again. If you are interested in joining please apply for membership and we will get you in ASAP.
