Re: Introduce Yourself

My name is Kris and I am from good ol' Minnesota. I have read almost every Macomber book in print. The ladies on Blossom Street are well known to me and I was so excited to hear that a new book was in print that I bought it the day it came out:smileyhappy:

Hello

Hi Everyone,

I'm Liz from Western New York. Hello Debbie!! Hello Steph!!!

I've read many of Debbie's books, particularly this series and the Cedar Cove series. I've recommended them to others and enjoy them myself immensely!

Can't wait to discuss this book with everyone come Monday!
Liz ♥ ♥

Re: Introduce Yourself

Hi Stephanie!

I spent last Saturday and Sunday reading the Blossom books and loved them. I was in Debbie's Suzanna's Garden group a few months ago.

I live in Orange, California and work in a large church here. I leave for Chautauqua, New York the 20th so my posting after that will be farther apart, but I'm ready to get started!

Re: Introduce Yourself

hi group and Debbie. Sorry I will miss you in Charlotte, NC on Monday and Tuesday. I'm in the midst of a few doctor's appts in preparation for a total knee replacement later in June. But for now, I'll be participating. My name is Maxcat and love knitting. I'm glad Debbie took our input from the last book and decided to write another Blossom Street book.

Re: Introduce Yourself

I'm Debby as well and am from Colorado. I've loved the Blossom Street series and the Cedar Cove series - they all feel like friends and I want to live in Cedar Cove!!!! I'd love to purchase the newest Lydia book, but my others are in paperback and I love to have my books in a series all "match"!!!! So I'll check it out at the library as soon as I can and look forward to trying to join the discussion as work allows!

Re: Introduce Yourself

Hi Everyone,

I'm Mari from the Chicago area. I just started reading Debbie Macombers' book, but didn't know they were a series! From the Cedar Cove series I read # 6 first then found out & went out & bought the 1st five books. I've finished #1 & am in the middle of #2 & I just love what easy reads they are. I picked up & read The Shop on Blossom Street (which I loved) but did I read that out of order also?? Thanks for your help.

Re: Introduce Yourself

Hello there. My name is Amanda and I'm a 21 year old mom of a 16 month old girl. She keeps me busy but I take any free time I have to read or Knit. My job outside of my daughter is knitting commission and sale pieces and I love it. My husband is wonderfully supportive and feeds my book habit as well as my yarn habit! I've read many of Debbie's free standing books and her blossom street books. Cedar cove is my next series to tackle! I can't wait to finish back on blossom street so I can fully get into these boards!

Re: Introduce Yourself

I am an elementary school librarian from NJ. I have read all of The Blossom Street books. I have enjoyed them so much. Last year I read Susannah's Garden. Debbie MacComber was I think on the June or July 2006 book discussion. I enjoyed it so much I am back again.

Hello, My name is Julia. I am currently reading Back On Blossom Street. I was so excited and thrilled when I saw the book that I snatched it up right away. I've read the first two books and loved them. I learned to knit about two years ago (after I retired from the Federal Government) and that is what made me buy The Shop On Blosson Street. I love the warm, cozy feeling these books give me. This is my first B&N book club and I'm curious to see how it works.

Re: Introduce Yourself

Hi, my name is Sarah. I started reading Debbie Macomber books a month or so ago with some friends in my area. We started with The Shop On Blossom Street and are working our way each month through another book in that series. The books have so captivated us, that we have all taken up knitting along with it. I can't believe I have put off learning this for so long, seeing as how I crochet. What a wonderful series.

Re: Introduce Yourself

I have never taken part in a book club before. I have read the other 2 Blossom Street books and since I own a tiny yarn shop on the Washington coast, it has been fun reading them. When A Good Yarn came out, we were offering our first socks on 2 circular needles class so a few of us were reading that at the same time. I look forward to following along and have just started reading the book myself.

Re: Introduce Yourself

Hi Everyone,

It's great to see so many fans of Debbie Macomber's work. I can tell already that this is going to be a terrific group.

I see that some of you are new to the groups- please don't be shy - ask any questions you have, and I or one of the helpful members who has been here a while will jump in and help you out.

Re: Introduce Yourself

Hi Everyone! My name is Patti and I am from Holland,Michigan. I was so excited to get the email informing me of this book club. Debbie is my favorite author. I have read all of the Cedar Cove Series,Susannah's Garden,Christmas Letters and the other two Blossom Street books and of course I am reading BOBS right now. I am anxiously awaiting the seventh Cedar Cove book. I knit and crochet so I enjoy that added bonus that Debbie gives us along with her books. I hope to someday meet Debbie. Her person shines through in her work I think. Debbie offers alot of different personalities and moral life lessons in her books. We can learn much from her. I am still reading BOBS and this is my first discussion group but I am so looking forward to it.

Re: Introduce Yourself

Hi! My names is Joyce and I believe I have read all of Debbie's books. My only complaint is that I wish she could write faster! I am out of anything to read now, any suggestions. I read the new Blossom Street book in one day.
