I am Nancy and I partcipated in "The Sister" and "Songs for the Missing" First Look Book Clubs last spring. I hail from Texas. I recently finished reading "The Widow Clicquot", the true story of a French woman who created a champagne empire in the early 1800's and an historical fiction about coffee and the suffrage movement set in the late 1800's in Lonodon called "The Various Flavors of Coffee". I am now enjoying a mystery titled "A Death in Vienna". I guess I'm traveling the world through books until I have more time to travel in person.
I look forward to reading and discussing our book in early January.

My name is Katelyn, I'm from Connecticut, and this will be my first time participating in First Look. I read a very wide range of literature which consists of basically anything I can get my hands on. I try to attend any author events possible, and some of my favorites include Wally Lamb, and Stephenie Meyer. I look forward to experiencing this new form of author reader interaction.

Hi! I participated in The Believers first look and it was a great experience. I got more out of that discussion then I have any in person book club I have ever attended. The summary of this book looks like something I would pick up at the store and want to read, so I can't wait!

My door bell rang a couple of hours ago and, by the time I reached the door, the delivery man had disappeared, but A Fortunate Age lay across my door jam!
I look forward to reading it, along with the many other books on my current reading list. But, as always with First Look books, I anticipate the fun of discussing it with all of you. I am certain we shall also enjoy the leadership of Karen once again!
I am an avid, eclectic reader living in New Jersey. I very much enjoy the B&N boards and the discussions here. For a sense of a few of my reading interests, visit my profile. I have appreciated the feedback that I have received (in personal messages) to date.
