THE RULE OF THE COFFEE SHOP By: gooduklady
30 Comments    Open  
Important Post

Since Bookrix has been revamped, we have lost some "Important Posts" - formerly known as "Stickies" here in the Coffee Shop.

For those new members who have recently arrived, we have only one rule that everyone must adhere to which is:

NO PROMOTING YOUR BOOKS.
NO LINKS TO YOUR BOOKS.
NO REQUESTING FEEDBACK ON YOUR BOOKS.

There are many other groups on Bookrix where the above criteria are welcomed. The Coffee Shop is a place where... Show more

I have a suitable pic for you if you want it. I'll slip it into the back of the book "Just Covers' on my profile (Looks like a cat's face). If you want it I'll put it up so you can capture it.

Please read the rules of the Coffee Shop. For those of you who choose to block me, sorry but there are rules.

So, I am about to go on my first EVER date in 2 weeks and I have no clue what to do. I mean I already know the guy. We know each other from High School. I just don't know how I'm supposed to act on a date. I haven't seen him in years either.
He understands and respects the reason why I have not started dating yet. The reason is because I was getting my health under control to the best of my abilities.
Thing is, this guy waited... Show more

He seems like a really nice guy.....I believe you must keep it "real".....Honest communication is always the "foundation" of any relationship.....Be blessed, Danny...

Congrats on your first date. Just be yourself and natural.
Then everything will be alright.

What we need is a rousing good debate in here to wake everyone up. How about the Government shutdown and the need for a wall? Any opinions?

For me It is what it is! I was thinking about this situation last night, and it wasn't "the people" who put him in office. Even though they took the time to go down to the poling station, and tick the box for the candidate they wanted. But the electoral commission who chose the... Show more

Rules of the Coffee Shop By: mitchellfriedman

I can respect the ban on promoting our books, posting links to our books, and requesting feedback on our books. I just have one question, is there a rule against discussing books and literature--for instance, would I be violating the rules if I were to post my reaction to a book , after I have read it? Would it be a violation if I made remarks, for instance, about. . . . oh, let's say, The Great Gatsby?

No I think that would be fine, if however you made remarks about a book written here I don't think that would be appropriate.

You are so serious here.
In the German "Biografisches" group we chat about books that we read and recommend (of course not our own books),

This has proved to be very helpful for us.

All the rules mean is 'Don't talk shop;, that's all. It's a place to relax... to take a break, etc. There's all kinds of groups to discuss your creations but not here, not now. Get it?

Anyone here a reader or fan of Valerie Solanas? By: rainer

Important Post

Hi, there!

I am really curious. Anybody here like Valerie Solanas' writing, especially her writing in "The SCUM Manifesto"?

I understand she is not really all that liked, but I do find her literary approach very likable. That is, though I do not agree with and sometimes even find myself condemning what she has to say, I really admire how she says it.

Any thoughts, anyone?
