I think that we can all agree that this community has been dead for the past few months.
What happened here, guys? We're all exciting, friendly, passionate people!
I for one believe that it's time to resurrect booklisters and become a true community again.

How shall we do this, you ask?

By holding a
Friending Meme

I think that if we could all just come out of our shells, reintroduce ourselves, and remind everyone how amazingly great it is to start literary discussion in here, then this place will get hopping again in no time.

Answer as much or as little as you like. =)

"Prayer, meditation, fantasy, intoxication, free association, psychoanalysis, daydreaming, play--all these are techniques for entering a realm of being other than the quotidian, tapping into our inner self, touching something dark and ecstatic in our essence. By doing this regularly, we salve not only our troubled spirits but also our imaginations. 'To do good work a man should be industrious,' said the preacher Henry Ward Beecher, but 'to do great work he must certainly be idle as well.'" Michael Dirda
