          Discussier

          “I’m a big reader that needed a place to talk about books. If you’re a big reader who is tired of getting blank stares whenever you start talking about your latest adventure in literature you’ve come to the right place. Basically, I’m a huge nerd. I read too much, watch a ton of movies, and play video games. I have a critical mind and often find myself reading books that I have a strong urge to comment on.”
