Just to give notice, but I am taking a small leave for a week or two. I'll be traveling here and there, just to take a breather and work on various pieces. I will return soon.

Is it just me, or is the country sliding into a state of apathy? It's as if 'war', gas prices, and nuclear development just isn't enough to keep things kicking anymore.

Hi guys, hope you don't mind me joining the table. I've been a fan of the round table since I was a kid and hope to one day be a part of such a circle myself. Myself, I'm an aspiring writer and, at times, I will admit, an avid drinker.
Coincidentally, I finished the Sun Also Rises a few days ago, so I guess I'm already caught up.
Nice to meet you all.

I just need maybe two more days! I've been moving house and things have gotten a bit out of hand. I'm therefore a bit behind on my reading schedule. But I'm very close to finishing. Sorry though!

Am new around here as well and did not properly introduce myself before spilling myself into your midst. I hope I am welcome among what appears to be an eclectic group.

Genius Rentals cordially offers members of the roundtable an introductory 100% discount from our usual rates which are typically quite exorbitant, to say the least.

Hello there.

Thought I'd drift by and see what was afoot, since I find myself in search of new thrills. I'm a London-based writer, although you'd probably find this a little more interesting than my current project.

How are you all? Mind if I pull up a chair?

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for what I should read next. I love books from the sort of 20s to 40s period, both English and American (although maybe with a slight preference for English... don't hold me to that). I've read most of the Fitzgerald canon I think, every Agatha Christie my library has, a whole lot of P G Wodehouse, a bit of Evelyn Waugh, um... what else? Oh, some Truman Capote. Some DH Lawrence. I'm sure I've read more but I can't think of any right now. But this is just to give you an idea of what I like. I'm reading Howard's End at the moment, and I'm loving it, but I've nearly finished. Sometimes I just feel overwhelmed at the number of books there are out there! How can one person really get through them all?

So, any recommendations? I was also thinking, if people were interested, we could start a kind of book group as one of the table's activities. Sorry GG, this is totally taking over your community. I guess there are about a million book groups on LJ, and probably a couple focusing on this period, but, well, I like the sound of you guys. And of course we can discuss plenty of things beside books.

Would anyone be into that?

Hi! I just joined. I think this community has a lot of potential, even though not much is happening yet. I love books from the early 20th century, especially Fitzgerald, P G Wodehouse, Evelyn Waugh, Agatha Christie and oh heaps more that I won't list. I went through a small dorothy Parker obsession a few weeks ago too.

Here are some things about me:

I live in Wellington, New Zealand. I've just finished a double degree in law (law is an undergraduate degree in NZ) and philosophy, and next year I'll be a lawyer.

So hi!

I'm quite ecstatic about finding this community (and so shortly after it was created)!

I adore Dorothy Parker, Fitzgerald, Benchley, the 1920's in general, and all things related to the so-called 'Vicious Circle'.

My name is Jessica, I'm 19, and I live in Florida.

I'm surprised that there are only two other members, but you two seem like fabulous girls. So hello!
