I think this is the first year I will have read 75 or more books in one year.

I read mostly fiction, a lot of new stuff, some non- fiction, including memoirs.

It seems when I look at other members lists, they do not read the kind of books I read, so maybe with this posting I will find others who have my taste.

I have no idea how to insert photos or hyperlink my books. I have seen instructions but they are too complicated to follow.

I have been on LT for over 10 years. In recent years I fill out the template for each of the books I read. I have won 35 Early Reviewer books and reviewed each one.

Welcome to the group Michelle.

I am sure that are plenty of our number with similar reading tastes. I have the Ann Patchett on the stacks if that helps!

Posting pictures and so on seems a little daunting at first and I recall that Jim (the group administrator) had put up a fairly straightforward explanation of how to do it if I could only find it.

Welcome! There are some helps for you on our group wiki page: http://www.librarything.com/groups/75booksin2017

There's a link there to show how to do cool things like pictures in posts and such. Also, you can hyperlink to book pages by making a touchstone - just put square brackets around the title. You can do the same for authors with double square brackets.

Oh, and it looks like quite a few of your books would be found around our group!

Thanks for the hyper linking tip. It worked. In a couple of cases it pulled up the wrong book. But I have learned something new. Perhaps I will try pictures another time. I wished it worked like posting an author photo. I do this all the time and so easy.
