Hey peeps. My second First Look, but I had just started a new job after I finished The Believers, so I didn't have time to contribute. But, hopefully I can get into this one. Looking forward to reading this one and discussing with all of you.

Hi Everyone =) I have received my confirmation message and am excited that I am included in this group. As an eclectic reader, I always have a few books going. LOL I have enjoyed "First Look" offerings since the beginning and think this one really looks good. I can't wait to discuss it with all of you, our moderator, the author, and any others who will join us! Thank you B&N for making the discussion possible.

This is my first First Look book and my first time participating in a book club. I'm very excited to dive into this book and participating in the forthcoming discussions!

This is my first time participating in First Look. I'm from western Massachusetts. I thank 2007's television writers strike for getting me back to reading. I went back to reading and lost interest in TV. I normally read thrillers and mysteries and thought that this would be a good way to try other genre.

Hi Norma. Hopefully you're feeling better. I live in the city in Wrigleyville, so I'm glad to see Chicagoland represented. Can't wait to talk about the book.
Yes I am feeling much better thank you. Can't wait to start this book either.

I'm reading "I Know This Much Is True" by Wally Lamb. I've had this book for quite a while and thought I would read it before I read his new book, "The Hour I First Believed." Sounds like you're really enjoying it. I Know... is pretty interesting and from what I've read about the new book, sounds like it will be a great book also.

Where are you from in OK. I was born in Lawton, OK but now live in Fort Worth, TX. This is my first online book club, so I'm looking forward to the new experience.

I can't wait to read this book b/c I loved the other First Looks so much!
Hi Bonnie! Just wanted to send out a special hello to a fellow psychologist! I used to live in rural county in NC as well. I teach psychology at a college in SC now!!
Hi back. If I make a 3rd career change (I was a special ed teacher first) it will be to college teaching I think. I would want to teach teacher's I think. Reading/Literacy/LD are special interests of mine. I love psychology too, but not that intro course.
