I have participated in several book clubs and enjoy hearing perspectives of other members.
Hope to receive my ARC packet soon...

I tried to be in the last discussion but signed up too late, so I am very happy to be here this time.
I'm legally blind so will be reading the book with my enlarger, which slows me down, but I am nothing if not determined!
Looking forward to meeting with you!

39's not so bad Susan. My number is a bit higher than that and the added 12 years have at least given me the outlook that it certainly beats the alternative.
Well, thank you most kindly, Cathie. I am now 39 years and 4 days old. (Goodness, I sound like a character from Pushing Daisies!) Sadly, I know exactly what you mean about it beating the alternative. I seem to be learning a lot of hard lessons in mortality lately.

Though I am an avid reader, this is my first time to be part of a "book club" - I am looking forward to the experience.
Talk to you later.

This quote says it all. I've been in on quite a few online book clubs & I hope First Look continues on.

My name's Jennifer. I'm 35, live in Central Florida (in a small town northwest of Orlando), married with no kids but a houseful of (formerly) homeless pets. I'm a legal secretary and an avid reader, knitter and writer. Haven't sold anything that I've written yet, but it's fun to try.
Looking forward to this book club experience!

And I thought my 15 mile trip to town was exhausting. hehehe! I'll not complain again.

Hello Kourt--I fell your pain! hehehe! My 16 year old daughter is going on 34, unless she doesn't get her way, then she's going on 4...hehehe! She's started online college courses, and now thinks she needs a whole new wardrobe to accessorize her (highly overpriced) new books.

I work full-time, am mother to a 10-year-old daughter, co-lead a Junior Girl Scout troop of 11 4th grade girls, walk annually in the Breast Cancer 3-Day, and have plunged into the world of blogging!
Right now, it's year end and cash flow testing time for my clients so I have to get going. Look forward to discussing this book! Can't wait for mine to arrive.

Since everyone seems to be mentioning Monsters...I may have to look that book up and buy it! Happy reading!
