Award Winners

I follow the awards.  Many don't, believing them to be political rather than based on merit. This may be so, however, I believe it would be difficult to make a political judgment if the book was not well written.  I have 'discovered' many new favourite authors among  the short listed titles as well.  There are as many awards as there are genres, so there is something for every taste.  What do you think of book awards?

What have you seen recently, at the cinema or on DVD? Be the David or Margaret of Bookworm and review it here. Recommend your favourite film or tell us which to avoid.

Performing Arts

In response to popular demand (thanks Madeleinea), on this page we can share the shows we have seen: Ballet, Concerts, Opera, Theatre. It will be our Culture Corner :P

This is the place to discuss your favourite books, your favourite authors, your favourite genres,  in fact anything even slightly bookish.  What book has most influenced your (reading) life?

If you are visiting for the first time, come in and look around.  Make yourself comfortable.  We are all friendly here and we are interested in books; reading them, writing them and, most of all, discussing them.  We'd love to have your input.  Introduce yourself, recommend what you like to read or jump right in on a discussion thread. Although we love new members, 'joining' is not compulsory and if we are not yet quite what you are looking for, please look in from time to time to see how we have evolved.

To my fellow Bookworms, Thank you all so very much for your support. It's very heartening.  I'm not going to attempt to reply to each and every post.  I see my role, at least for the moment, as setting it up for you to enjoy.  This is new to me and as I learn, the site will improve and your suggestions and feedback are most welcome.

Take care, stay safe and we can all look forward to new friendships and fun times.

Suggestion Box

Welcome to Bookworm Live.  It needs a lot more tweaking but it's a start.  (Da5id has nothing to fear from me :).  Let me know (here) if you notice any errors or you'd like something added and I'll do my best.  I can also be contacted at if you have questions or need assistance.  Remember that this is a work in progress and will evolve into whatever we want it to be.
