Re: Party for Lauren

Yes it was a busy morning in the kitchen. I am glad Richard and you were there to help out.

So many have come to view today, grab a bite and a beverage. Hope they come back to talk.

I need to get some of that fruit and another cup of tea, see you in the breakfast nook.

I thought of another person to have read Before I Fall, my daughter's best friend would love this book.

Feel free to discuss the book. Copies in each area will be provided.

Be careful not to let those spoilers slip. Not everyone has finished the book.

Here is one of the rooms. Your Party Committee

Awwww, I love this, guys. Thanks so much for hosting the party! (Even if I'm getting here closer to lunch-time...sorry--another crazy a.m. for me!) I am so touched...and I am actually really drinking tea right now, so it feels like a real party. :smileyhappy: :smileyhappy: Thanks for this entire experience--participating in this First Look program has just been unimaginably amazing for me.

Virtual food is wonderful, no calories.

Do you have someone waiting to read your copy next?

Re: Party for Lauren

Well, I am getting some hot chocolate and some of those jelly beans.

Then I will curl up with the dogs and read. My way of relaxing after work.

There were some lurkers here, eating/drinking the virtual menu.

So keep helping yourselves.

Hope everyone had fun today. We did.

I volunteered my copy for the blog ARC Book Tours, it is run by a reader who sends out the ARC's ontours so more bloggers can have a chance to read them.  She was already do a tour but only had one copy and was going to limit the tour to 10 people but 20 had indicated interest.  I am going to send my copy out so it can be used for more people to get a chance.  Usually I loan or give my ARCs to friends and they kind of keep circulating among us so more people get the chance to read.
