Ok, so I'm on dragonvale wiki as usual when I go to Dragon Trip's page. I see a message, and do you know what it says? "I'm joining bookwyrm wiki", that's what. I love reading, so I decide to come here.
So, I, after weeks and weeks and weeks of forgetfulness, come here. Today. I write this blog. And I'm obviously currently doing so.
On this blog I'm including a list of books I want added. It's at the bottom, which happens to be here:
1. Guardians of Ga'Hoole
2. Wolves of the Beyond
3. Last Dragon Chronicles
That's all right now. I think I may start one or two, but there's a lot of those books.Read more >
We’re excited to announce the next book we’ll be reading for Wikia Book Club is J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit! Whether you’re new to Middle-earth or can recite the Elvin Hymn to Elbereth, this is a great way to celebrate the upcoming release of Peter Jackson’s film The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
Join us on the Literature Wiki Wednesday, Dec. 5th at 5pm PST and then again on Sunday, Dec. 9th at 5pm PST (if you can only make one that’s fine too) on to share your thoughts on Hobbit-holes, diminutive Dwarves, and smoldering Smaug- or whatever your favorite topic may be!
Be sure to follow us on Good Reads and Twitter! While you’re at it, tweet @WikiReads with the title of the next novel you’d like us to Book Club.Read more >
Probably this question has gone through the minds of a few of you. "Why wyrm?" "Why is there a dragon on the front page?" Tis about time I explained, I figure.
I know a small handful of you are familiar with the author Mercedes Lackey, and her various series. One of those series is called, "Tales of the 500 Kingdoms." The concept is that every single fairy tale or myth exists in this world, and a quite mysterious force called the Tradition forces people or situations to match that myth. It's up to the fairy godmothers to keep the worst of the stories from coming true, because the Tradition does not ensure a happy ending, but it will ruin lives.
One of the books in this series is a retelling of the Perseus and Andromeda myth; instead of…Read more >
It's your friendly neighborhood pickle here to establish the wiki's official newspaper! It's going to be a bi-weekly gazette of recent happenings on the wiki. It will include featured articles, and new content also, and will of course be awesome. Before the newspaper can launch, we need a staff of 4 people besides me. The positions are as followed:
Oversees all phases of the production of a newspaper. All articles and sections run through the Editor-in-Chief for a review. He is responsible for assigning staff with their stories, along with the section editors. He also decides content of the issue and designs overall layout, and section layouts with section editors.

Hello, fellow bookwyrms!
We are finally going to create a book club! This blog will handle all information, sign-ups, and guidelines. For now, though, I would like to just get some members.
Now then, the sign-ups. All members are welcome to join the book club, and some rules will follow soon. If you are at all interested, please put a comment below that includes your time zone (we may end up having two meetings for people who couldn't make the first one).
I think that's about it, and feel free to ask any questions you have! I hope to see you all in the book club!
1. Follow all Bookwyrm Wiki Policies.
2. Allow only staff members to RUN (and organize) the book club meeting(s). Note: subject to change.
3. Please try your best to attend at least on…

A community is held together by trust.
Trust is built on honesty and character.
The honesty must come from you,
But the character begins here.
I am a servant of the people.
- By accepting this position of trust, I accept both the power to help and the responsibility to do no harm.
I am human.
- I accept that my judgment is not flawless, and that I am accountable to the community for my actions and decisions.
- I will listen to those that surround me when they offer advice and correction.
- I will do my best to make informed decisions.
I am not alone.
- I am a member of a dynamic community. Every choice I make will reflect the feelings and wishes of the community to the greatest extent possible.
- I will keep open communication with the entirety of the rest of st…

Here's my thoughts about how this place is likely to progress, and an explanation to everyone on why there aren't that many other staffers yet....
Phase 1: The current phase. At this point the wiki has very few users. All staff decisions are made by the Founder in hopes of setting up a stable community; forums are open to all users on policy and content. Policy pages and guidelines are not locked.
As a part of this phase, and a note to anyone who might have come across this before this phase expires: applications for staff will be closed after a certain point is reached, either in number of staff or size of community. At that time, all current staff will go under review to determine whether or not their participation warrants demotion, …

Attention all Librarians! The official to do list is over here. Leave me a note if you either want to add a new item, or have taken care of an item; need to keep this list up to date, after all. Newest tasks listed first.
- Reordering of all categories on individual pages: Author, Series, Genre, (any category such as Young Adult comes next), then the In progress and Article Stubs if those exist on the page.
- There are three new templates to accompany the Book template. They are Novel (complete removal of publication order data), Series Start (only lists the book following), and Series End (only lists the book preceeding). These four need to be implimented on their appropriate pages.
- Any pages that still lack pictures need to have those added. …

This is Exaestuo, and this is his journal.
(June 29th, 11:55 PM)
I felt it was about time to start a journal. The Clan is in a bit of strife at the moment, and I, along with the rest of the elders and leaders, have been holding a meeting. Torrens and Immotus both suggest that we move, as the main problem appears to be that we have run low on supplies. The leader, Primiserius, has sent scouts to find a suitable place to move. We have faith in our best scout, Cadifor. He came from a different clan, hence the unusual name.

The council held another meeting, but it was cut short. Yes, all because of me. I had a seizure. Or so Venustus told me. I remember trying to pay attention to something Maralin…
