Since we have a group on Facebook, I thought I could create one in Myspace, if enough people are interested. Just let me know!

anyone with a website could also put this onto their main page:

 

 <a href="http://www.bookclubforum.co.uk/"> <img src="http://www.bookclubforum.co.uk/bcf.gif"></a> </img>

which would give an easy and pretty link to be clicked

 

edit: if you want to see a preview of how it will look:

I still put little business cards in all my Swaps and books that I sell. I'm not sure how much interest it has generated but every little helps and all.

I am in the middle of putting together my personal website about my reading and have a section on this forum. Do you mind if I cut and paste what you say on your front page about what your site is about? I have simply said something about how much I love the site and then put in speech marks your bit so it explains what th site is and then explains it in your words!

 

I also cant get the html to work in easily web creator so no funky logo!

I just wanted to let everyone know that I sent out the flier I made last week to my new library system (I moved counties). My old library was happy to display it, so I hope the new one will, too. It would be great to get it displayed in the Tacoma Main Branch, which gets hundreds of visitors every day!

On occasion, people over on the Amazon fiction boards will ask whether anyone knows of a good book forum; so far I've kept this place under wraps as I don't really want to have to ban the Netherworld out of all the shameless self-promoters and trolls that infestate the place, however I'm wondering whether I shouldn't be targeting the genuine readers that are there also. Thoughts?

There are some great ideas in here about how to go about promoting the forum.

 

I particularly like the idea about putting little stickers or flyers in books being donated or sold and asking local libraries about putting up a flier.

 

What do you think?

I had completely forgotten about this thread but you're right, there are some good ideas. Putting stickers or flyers into books to be donated would undoubtedly attract a few people to the site, but it would mean getting members access to those stickers and flyers - I'd have to work out the practicalities of that.

I don't think we necessarily need to do anything fancy, at least not to start with. Even a post-it note with a little handwritten message, and a link to the forum, hidden somewhere in a book would work!
