MOTM June 2019: Gregs317

Post by bookowlie » 31 May 2019, 09:48

I am pleased to announce the June Member of the Month is…Gregs317! Our honoree has been a consistent member of OBC since 2013. He is an avid reader and prefers to read at night. Gregs317 has even read a few books by Bill Bryson, one of my favorite authors! He mainly hangs out in the reading discussion forum and provides interesting commentary on a variety of topics. If you see any of Gregs317’s posts in the “What Are You Reading Right Now?” thread, you can be sure the book he’s reading is worth a second look. Gregs317 is particularly helpful in recommending books to other members, based on their reading tastes. He also enjoys organizing read-alongs, where other members will read the same book along with him. Gregs317, stand up and take a bow!

Congrats! :mrgreen:
