Hello there and welcome to iVillage!

I'm CMBren, the Community Moderator of Books & Entertainment. I wanted to take a moment to welcome you to iVillage and our Book Club board. I also wanted to explain why there have been no replies to your current posts; we are unfortunately, having an issue with special characters use in title posts, such as the two you've posted that contain the ~ ... "I have a soft spot for Barñaby Rudge" and "Favorite book in Español?" (As you can see, there's no issue with the special charater in the body of the post, only the title. Wink)

The results is that the message is unable to be opened and read by anyone, instead going to a page not found error. Our tech team is investigating the issue but I didn't want you to think that you were being ignored; we're always happy to see a new face! If you would care to re-post your messages without using the special characters in the title, I know we'd all be happy to talk! 

I do apologize for the inconvenience and hope to see you again very soon on the board!

I am actually a developer here at iVillage helping to try and figure out the issue ;-) Those were test posts... I tried to make them innocuous. Thanks!

Oh goodness.... color me embarrassed! Embarassed But welcome anyway and thanks for all your hard work!

Looks like you may be on the right track to figuring out the issue, since I see a post with spanish characters in the title and I can actually open it. Yay for hard work and progress!
