I like to read erotic fiction like Lora Leigh etc.How do i find members with bookshelves that share the same interests i do?

 

It would be so much easier to search for books i enjoy.

THe easiest way is to hang out in the genre forums primarily love/romance. Most of LL's books are WL so  you probably won't find that many just sittingon people's shelves.  I read a lot of erotica as well and most of it is WL or goes pretty quickly. 

Go hang out in the Love/Romance forum.  There's an ongoing thread called Is This On Your WL where members try to find people to post mulitple WL books to at once to save on postage.  There's lots of discussions.  For awhile we even had a guess the erotic book thread going.

Also check out the games forum.  The erotic WL swaps seem to be the most popular and it's a good way to get erotic books and find new ones to add to your WL.

I agree with Mary - get involved with the games because that will put you in direct contact with the people who share your interests.  And you don't have to join right up in one...read the different threads for a while to get a feeling for who people are and what they are interested in. You can check theirbookshelves from their posts.  I just did my first swap.  I just hope my recipient likes what I sent!

I was just in the Games forum.  I'm new to games and swaps. I don't understand a lot about it.  But I ran across a thread you might find interesting and helpful for finding other members with your interest.
