Absolutely.  You'll need to add a member list to your first post, I think.  Just about all the other clubs have them.

I do not mind. But all my e-books are in polish, so there is no use for them in your hands. =P

And I have to make ranks and organisation of our club...

Oh, and we can try to become an official club, don't you think?

Hey Ar-kun, should we start an ebook exchange?  I actually have a ton (like 15GB worth that needs to be sorted) if anyone would like something.   :yay:

Count me in!!

Books I Own:
Harry Potter series (all)
Redwall series (10)
Father Brown Mysteries - 1 (and I forget the title, how shameful! =( )
LOTR and The Hobbit
Chronicles of Narnia
Brother Cadfael Mysteries (16 out of 22)
Agatha Christie Mysteries (about 12 out of who knows? XD )
The Good Master, The Singing Tree, The White Stag by Kate Seredy
Most of the Tortall Books by Tamora Pierce
The Heralds of Valdemar set by Mercedes Lackey
The Wolfwalker series by Tara Harper
The Young Wizards and Feline Wizards series by Diane Duane
A load of theology/Bible study books, English grammar, how to play go, how to play baseball, how to draw cartoons, various science texts and that sort of thing. ^_^
I'm stopping there because its getting ridiculous. :wahaha:

Harmed a book?
   I have occasionally used them to kill spiders and silverfish. But I can't really say the book was harmed much.

Favorites:
   My favorite genres are mystery, adventure, and scifi/fantasy.  In the latter two I specialize in young adult fiction though I've read and am continuing to slog through the vast selection of "adult" material available.  Basically if its well-written and doesn't overly saturate things with sex, I'm a fan.  My favorite authors are  Ellis Peters, Brian Jacques, Tamora Pierce, Agatha Christie, and Diane Duane.  By favorite I mean I don't care what the book is about, I'll go ahead and buy it anyways if its by them. My favorite book-related pet peeves are how young people nowadays haven't read any of the classics like Jules Verne or Jane Austin or even whole plays of Shakespeare, how libraries are understaffed and underdeveloped, and how used bookstores are disappearing into the world wide web.

Bibliophilia is the love of books. Accordingly a bibliophile loves books, but especially "for qualities of format." A bookworm loves books for their content, or otherwise loves reading in general. Bibliophilia is generally considered to be an incorrect, but some would say merely recent, usage. The practice of loving or collecting books is dubbed bibliophilism, and the adjective form of the term is bibliophilic. Also, a bibliophile may be a book collector.

The classic bibliophile is one who loves to read, admire and collect books, often amassing a large and specialised collection. Bibliophiles do not necessarily want to possess the books they love; an alternative would be to admire them in old libraries. However, the bibliophile is usually an avid book collector, sometimes pursuing scholarship in the collection, sometimes putting form above content with an emphasis on old, rare, or expensive books, first editions, books with special or unusual bindings, autographed copies, etc.

If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.
