Announcing the Nerd Voraciously Discord Server!

I grew up in AOL chat rooms and have always loved getting to know people from around the world. Now, more than ever, we need to maintain the human connection. With so many people practicing social distancing, I felt it was important to finally announce the server.


Nerd Voraciously is a place for anyone to chat with people about the things they are passionate about! With text and voice chat, you’ll be able to interact with people in a “chat” setting, make new friends, and maybe find new passions along the way. Plus, we organize some games and activities if you want some extra interaction!

“There are libraries where I live. However, the content isn’t always related to what I read. They are often based on the native tongue or the few books that are related to the genres I read are often of an older set of releases.”

I would love to be able to support book stores more but I just can’t afford to. Like I said earlier, it is harder to get approval for books on Netgalley as well.”
