“Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.”

~Angela Carter

Welcome to Mythical_Truth, an LJ reading discussion group!

A collection of varied individuals united over a common goal - to experience the pleasure and dedication of reading good books.

Like a standard reading group - members may nominate several books a month for reading suggestions, and the books receiving the most nominations are voted on in a poll to determine our next reading choice. We take 1-2 months (depending on length) reading our chosen book and at the end of the month I'll post discussion questions.
Members may use this community for other reading-related posts, and post their thoughts, discussion starters, etc, whenever they like! From time to time we'll have a "cyber movie night" to watch the movie based on our book selection for comparison.

This community is open to polite and courteous members of all types. Simply request membership and most likely I'll approve you. :-) The more the merrier - tell your friends or advertise this community as you like! This is a very laid back community - you can be a member for one month, or forever, it doesn't matter. When the book is chosen each month get a copy and read along with us if you like, or don't - you don't have to join in every month in order to remain a member, but may use this community on your own terms. Want to read 12 books a year with our group or just 1, have much to contribute to discussion or very little, it's up to you! :-)
