Really surprised to see how few posts are happening here. Have we stopped reading or are we posting somewhere else?

I've never posted in here, so I don't know how active it was in the past. I just added my current book to the What are you reading? thread.

I had a similar experience (shock at lack of posts) with the Book Club thread in the Author Lounge earlier this year. For a challenge that has been around as long as it has, it has very few contributions. I'm sure there are lots of people who read here...I guess many of them just don't post about it or write quizzes about the books!

I read, just have to get in the habit of posting, I guess. I'll run over to the other thread to post about some of what I've been reading.

I think there are quite a few forums that are less busy than they used to be. Some people have suggested that members are more likely to post on the Chat Boards nowadays: the Literature board certainly seems to have some topics of the kind that might have been posted in this forum in the past.
