We posted an alert about this two weeks before (in Community Room and Announcements, as well as in the previous First Look board) so regular users of the book clubs would have seen it.
There is no running list. Every First Look Book Club has its own sign up process so everyone can have an equal chance to get a free arc and then, more importantly, come back to talk to each other and the author.
Hi Maria,For some reason, I did not get notification of the June First Look Selection for Songs of the Missing. I just happen to see it in the Discussions listings so I did request an ARC copy. Is there anyway to make sure I am still on the list? I don't want to miss out. I really love to read and enjoy reading the discussions people have on them. Thank you so much!

I read and knit and dance. Compulsively feel yarn. Consume books. Darn tights. Drink too much caffiene. All that good stuff.

Maria,How do I knopw that I am part of the the first read for SONGS for the MISSING?Mary
A few things:
You have to be sure that your request was sent to the correct mailbox. How do you know it is the correct one? In the first message of this thread, within my instructions, in part 2 to submit your information, there is a link to click here. In the pop up message from that link, the mailbox is already automatically filled in. Your request should only go to that mailbox.
Once your message is sent, it will take several days to receive a confirmation via private message.
To everyone who sent a request to the correct mailbox last week, please wait a few days. We expect to respond to you no later than this week, please do not send your request again.
If you sent your request in this week, please wait a few more days.
If you have received a confirmation, welcome to the First Look Book Club! This is a terrific book that we think you will all enjoy.
When we have gone through all the requests and have sent all the confirmations, we will let you know. At that point, if you have not yet received a confirmation from us, feel free to PM me.
Thanks for your cooperation!

I am having a problem finding that private window. This is where, from what I can understand, I could write my address and name. Please help me! Where is it?Thank you,Grapes

I did get a box to come up. Your procedure is very easy. Thanks for your help. I feel some relief, I think. I might not get chosen. I can only hope.
