I guess I was so excised to read the next selection that I did everything wrong. I hope I get in this time. Because I really love reading all types of books for enjoyment.gmfuhlman

The Underground Book Club has a website where you are told what the next book is and if you are intrigued you can read it and then if you are interested in discussing it you email the director. If there is still space for you at that point then you are in for that meeting and you get a message the day before telling you what the location will be.
When you get to the meeting you may see a couple of familiar faces but there are always some fresh ones as well, which is what makes it interesting. You also end up visiting different spots around the state that you may never have ventured to otherwise.
I've made it to several meetings, two of which were attended by the author of the book being discussed. Those were both sensational in their own unique ways.

Hi, this is Jen. I am also from around that area, I am from Springfield, MA. I am very excited about First Look. This is my first time here and I posted yesterday, so I hope I get in. I teach here in Springfield and I love reading to my students. I also love to grab a good book and sit on my couch with the windows open (when its warm out) and just read. I love being caught up in the story and not thinking about anything else. I am excited to join this discussion.
It's nice to meet you, Jen. =)

I am Doug from High Point, New Jersey. I have really enjoyed the works of Stewart O'Nan. I was involved in the discussion of his most recent novel "Last Night at the Lobster", which I thought was amazing in its insights into the low apying part of the service sector of our economy. Doug
