    Generally, we've been going on the assumption that people have finished the book when they start posting in the book club topic. If you haven't read the book at all, then you may want to wait a bit before jumping into the discusison.

    On the other hand, many of us do jump in and put our thoughts in before having finished the book.

    However, many people will use spoiler tags to hide anything that might spoil the book for those who haven't read the entire book.

    {spoiler}

    Spoiler

    {/spoiler}

    Just replace the "{" and "}" with "[" and "]" and it will look like this:

    If you scroll your cursor here, then you are reading the spoiler: Colonel Mustard did it in the Kitchen with the Candlestick.

    Scroll your cursor over the black line to reveal the text.

    I noticed that the Bookclubs at Fantasy Bookspot and SF chronicles have even less contributors than us, and both now seem to be defunct. Any regular members here active enough in these or other forums that they could invite people to join in here?

    In an inclusive, were-all-fantasy-fans type way of course.

    My post count from FBS could probably be counted on 2 hands - Rob has posted there a little more than myself though.

    I tend to see some similarities in current reading threads as well, so maybe there are some posters here using different names there.
