The pleasure of reading is discovering the text for yourself. Don't give out spoilers unless they are behind an lj-cut. Please put as far as you are discussing.. such as the chapter.. so another member knows whether they can read it or not.
This keeps it clear what book we're discussing. Abbreviations can be used and are encouraged to save time. ;)
This should go out without saying, but just to reiterate; be nice! We want to discuss different ideas and the more viewpoints the better to get a well-rounded understanding. Be respectful even if the person disagrees with you. Be nice in your rebuttals and don't resort to calling someone names, unless in jest, you dodo-head!
Yup. It is a requirement. What more is there to say? Happy Reading!
