Hey! I'd definitely LOVE to join! I've been trying to figure out if one was starting up the last few weeks. Me and another blogger were going to start one, we decided since we hadn't encountered one and then we found yours! I need to check out what I have before I decide on my level of participation, just wanted to drop I note that I'll definitely be joining!

Beth F said...

Ok, ok. Alea and you and others have convinced me. I've never, ever read a graphic novel! Shame on me. I read 100+ books a year so I really should be expanding my horizons. I'm in on the major level: 12! Yikes!! Thanks for providing lists.

Beth F said...

Oops. Forgot to say that I'll post on blog in the next couple of days. Hope someone makes a cool button.

Alea said...

Yay I'm glad you are joining Beth! I need to figure out what I already have to read and what i really want to read on top of that to figure out what level I'll be. I'm really excited about this!

Laza said...

Awesome, yall just shoot me an email at gimmemorebooks10 at gmail dot com and i'll send you an invitation to this blog.

See now I read (mainly) manga as far as graphic novels go. Well manga/manwha/manhua. I read english comics, but not in GN form (I'm a sucker for individual issues) and its rare for me to pick up a GN just because. Would manga/manwha/manhua count?

Laza said...

Absolutely. I'm just lumping it all into Graphic Novels for the sake of brevity. I will be really excited to see any posts about manga because I don't know anything about it.

Thanks for hosting! I'm so excited to get started. I have my tentative list of 12 (though I secretly hope to read many more) here. Thanks again!

Jeska said...

I would love to join this at the 6 book level. I read 3 this year, so I think I can manage 6 for 2009. Fun!

Grilsgood said...

I thought I joined, but now dont' see me, so let's join

Mervi said...

Hi! I decided to join, too. I'm going for the doctorate. I read a lot of comics but I only review a fraction of them so this should be challenging.

Rhinoa said...

I know it's a little late but I missed signing up for this (no idea how that happened sorry!) and really want to join in. I am going away tomorrow for a couple of days but will post details when I get back if that's ok.

Darla D said...

I'd love to join, too. Sounds like fun! I'll send you an email - thanks!
