Writing is stressful, so why not duck into the Coffee Shop for a spot of idle banter and relaxation. Procrastination has never been so entertaining!

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:


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

I am so glad to review these rules again, sometimes I forget where to post things!


Paper Planes should be able to change the group pic and insert a 'cuppa joe'. I can change the pic on my group.


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.

Take a break and check out this talented group that first performed in 2013 for AGT. Here they are giving their best to enliven the Game of Thrones.

Fantastic! As a voice major in college, I got to see all the work that goes into learning how to sing at that level. But of course, the actual talent has to be there to begin with, and these three gentlemen have it in super abundance. Thank you for sharing this - I had no idea... Show more

Whoa, so sorry I opened my mouth. I think you have a few biases but not for me to do otherwise than wish you a happy day.


I have a bias against genocide.

What ever happened to the civility that once was the hallmark of Life. I have walked and talked with thousands of people, I see a language that is fit only for drunkard lifeless
humans.I was reading Emily Dickinson's poetry and even in grief the questions are well tailored and asked without offending the tormentor.

She says in one of her poems, I measure my grief and wonder...........A soft tone that makes you feel her pain... Show more

Our Dilemma By: Bobby

We may never ever stop a rising tide
Sooner than later we sure will find
We are no match for its racing waters
We would be better off sitting by the side
And hope against hope it subsides in time;

Fire, Floods, Quakes and volcanoes
Survey Earth from their vantage point
They wreak havoc in the blink of an eye
They are no mistakes or let up of Nature
They come to warn us of dangers pending;

Life in of itself has no built in safeguards

I like it, even though I hope the last sentence is not (won’t become) true …!

Do Guns kill people By: Bobby

This new controversy that most deaths by guns are suicides and not homicides;does it then justify use of Automatic non stop shooting guns.


correct - you just need one bullet on yourself. Definitely no need for non-stop shooting guns (neither useful for hunting and ridicilous for self defense).

Andreas BookRix-Administrator

Even if you killed yourself, you killed a human being. So why differentiate between particular kinds of guns? It is so ridiculous to defend weapons just for the sake of it. If all kinds of guns were banned, much less crime would happen, because it would be much more difficult to get a weapon at all.


I agree. This is one thing I have always promoted. I don't think you need them for hunting even. If you are a Samson, fight it out and see if the poor animal will not rip you apart. We can have those skeet shootings if we cannot live without guns.

I agree, Bobby!
Hunting, killing anything, shouldn't be a sport.

>>>I remember a very humble grandpa was saying on some Radio Program that hunting is a great get together for the family; let an alien come from some other planet and bring his family and kill you in a shoot out, you... Show more


If you kill (hunting/fishing) for food and you have no other choice it’s okay. If you are practicing it as a sport there it definitely something wrong with you attitude!

But back to the question: People kill! A gun in some way is rather like a tool, like a Bow and an Arrow or... Show more

I get these newsletters and can't remember if I found the link here, or if elsewhere, whether or not I've shared it on BookRix. Gotta love getting old.

Anyhow, this is a great place for young aspiring authors who are serious about their future as writers, or even just mildly interesting in pursuing it. I'm going to post this in a few other groups here, too, so if you get several in your Inbox, just roll your eyes, do a "good... Show more
