What is a Clique?
A clique is a listing of people that attribute themselves to the clique's subject. In this case, the members of this clique associate themselves with the term "bookworm" and celebrate their love of reading. Unlike fanlistings, cliques tend to represent abstract concepts and ideals rather than being a fan of a subject. This means that cliques can range from claiming something (like this clique), showing a belief, supporting an ideal and so forth.
What's the Point?
Cliques give people a chance to show their support or belief of a cause or subject, and generally they're just really good fun. Website owners can also use buttons to identify themselves as a member of a clique.
This clique allows members to "claim" a book or book series as their own. This means that each book or series can only be claimed once. If a book/series is already taken you may not claim it. This might seem strict, however, it is to help spread the love amongst all books. So try to choose the one that really means a lot to you.
You may claim:
- Any individual book
- A book series
- A novella
- Fiction or Non-Fiction
- A collection of stories or poems
You may not claim:
- Individual short stories (you must claim the book the story is in)
- Individual poems (a book of poems is fine)
- Fan Fiction
- Comics, graphic novels or manga (there are so many volumes and publications that it would get confusing)
