Blatantly stealing the concept from claim_a_movie, claim_character and every other claim community under the sun (thanks to those guys, btw) - this is the LJ Community for you to claim your favorite book! Whether it's a timeless literary classic, or some trashy romance novel you picked up on the checkout line, you can stake your claim on it here!
Book titles will be listed in alphabetical order. If they are part of a series, they will be grouped together and listed in order of publication.
I was an English major, but I've not read everything on earth, so please, be sure to include the author's name with your claim. Don't say you don't know it...this is the internet, for heaven's sake, you can find it! :)
1) Members are allowed ONE book. If it's from a series - like the Lord of the Rings books, for example, you can only claim ONE. You want Fellowship of the Ring, fine, but that's all you get. No exceptions. Sorry.
2) If you would like to claim a short story, you may do so, but it still counts as your one claim.
3) Only one user per book. Books may be shared, but both users must agree to the share.
4) No fighting or flaming over books, please! The pages might get torn!
5) If you try to claim more than one, I will take the first one as your claim.
6) If there are multiple version of a book (Stephen King's The Stand pops to mind), then each version is available for claiming (Hey, some people apparently LIKE the abridged version of that...go figure!)
7) You are not staking any legal claim on the intellectual property of these books. This community doesn't intend any infringement.
8) Please feel free to make banners and post them on your sites or in your journals, but remember to either mention us or link back to us. Thanks!
This community is co-maintained by beautifulcynic and donna_c_punk . We will do our BEST to update the listing once a week. So if you don't see your name and book claim on the list right away, fear not. We're probably just wasting time somewhere else on the Net. ;)
Being the co-maintainers of this community, we are allowed three book claims. It was going to be two for us, except we both have exceptional taste, and our favorite book is the same. So it'll be three for us. That is a rule I just made up and yes I do have a flag. :) cinesister is allowed two for the usage of her wonderful community rules/description stuff. Thank you!
Find out if the book you would like to claim are already taken by clicking HERE (a list will be added after on 8-17-02, after some claims have been submitted). Please do NOT submit claim requests in reply to the listing. Claims that are not submitted in the Journal itself will be ignored.
