Important announcement about forums

Sorry - our Forums section is no longer supported. We’re preparing to launch a completely redesigned Inside a Dog website later in 2018, where you'll be able to publish your own writing, connect with other bookish teens and share your love of books, reading and all things YA. In the meantime, there's plenty of content to explore in the book reviews, book clubs and blogs sections. (Stay tuned for more on the new website.)


1. Where's my book club?

If you created a book club and chose it to be listed in the group directory, and that book club is approved, it will appear on the Book Clubs page.

You can also easily find any book clubs you have created or joined by going to your My Inside a Dog page.

If your book club is not in these locations then it is either:
a) still waiting for approval by the site moderators. Please be patient. We try to have all content is moderated within an hour, during business hours (that's Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm). Outside of these times it may take a day or so. I apologise for the inconvenience, but every dog needs his rest time! Or
b) not approved/deleted. Only book clubs which are about books, and which do not already exist will be approved. 

If in doubt, or needing assistance, please contact us.


2. How can I change my password?

On your My Inside a Dog page, select 'Edit' at the top of your profile (image here).

> Type in what you want your new password to be (and again in 'confirm password').

> Click 'Save' at the bottom of the screen.


3. Where can I talk about stuff that isn't about books?

Until recently, our General Chat forum was the place to go to chat about non-book stuff. But, we've closed all our existing forums, including the General Chat one, because - drum roll, please -  we're working hard to get the new Inside a Dog website ready to launch later in 2018!

A dedicated bunch of bookish teens has been helping us design the new, improved site, where you'll be able to publish your own writing, connect with other book lovers and generally share your passion for books, reading and all things YA.


4. If you're a dog, how can you type?

I took a class at the Secretarial School for Gifted Dogs, and I have a special keyboard with paw-sized keys. It is difficult, though, so I make my human minions do a lot of the work for me. I dictate, they type.
