    My First Post

    Hi All,

    First time I have joined any type of forum. I’m from Melbourne, Australia and obviously love reading and literature. Although I am a 55 year old secondary school teacher, my subjects are Chemistry, Biology and General Science and I have nothing to do with the teaching of literature or English nor did I study either of these subjects at uni.

    In the past twelve months I have cut back my workload and have began to pursue other interests (the teaching profession can be totally consuming) such as the captivating pleasure of reading novels. This year I have joined two book clubs and now I am entering into the cyber world of literature. One book club focuses on classics and the other on contemporary fiction. Although I still have a full time teaching schedule, I follow the DEAR time approach “Drop Everything And Read time”.

    Just in case your wondering why MRI - this is my timetable code at work based on my initials which most people immediately think of “Magnetic Resonance Imaging” ie. MRI Scans but I prefer “Mindful Reading Imaging”. Why the image of the bull? This is a homage to Spanish background.
    Regards to all,

    MRI

    Welcome to all friendly introductions I missed due to being absent from boards so long! I hope you forgive delay and my unpredictable real life for kidnapping and keeping me in its custody so long
    It is amazing however to see this threa(t)d is still out here, active and sticking out!

    I guess things have changed quite a bit here. I have been noticing some threads required moderator's approval and looking at the forum traffic, wondering if there's still actually person/people moderating this place. Just wondering if couple of posts I made ever made online or just virtually stuck there in a long queue of to be approved posts

    ssubterranean: Mods yes... queue? unsure... I believe due to the past spam attacks LitNet needed some heroic changes made.

    ssubterranean: Logos is still around, but there have been software problems that aren´t going to be mended just now, I suppose because of the costs.

    One has to have patience: sometimes it takes me four logging ins to be able to post anything.
