Thanks to Lauren, Rosemary, and the group!

Lauren and Rosemary,

 

I don't need to tell you how much we've loved having you with us, or how grateful the group is for your deciding to share Before I Fall with First Look, considering a party has been set up by book group members in the Community Room in your honor!

 

Thanks for everything. Before I Fall is beautifully written, and has given us excellent and challenging conversation, for the young adults and long-time adults among us. We hope to read your next book here!

 

And to the group, thanks for your thoughtful readings, your insightful questions and comments, and your awesome party!

 

Rachel

Re: Thanks to Lauren, Rosemary, and the group!

Lauren, thank you so much for the opportunity to read your book and for the time you spent with us. I hope the book does very well and that it touches many lives in a very positive way! Rosemary, thank you for your work on the book and for sharing your time with us. It is always wonderful to have people who believe in a book with us for the discussion.

 

Rachel, thank you again for the wonderful, thought-provoking questions. You always make us think, and that makes the discussion better. To those at B&N who chose the book, or had any part in enabling this discussion to move forward, thank you! I also want to send a big thank you to my fellow readers for your thoughtful discussion. It has been a pleasure and I hope to see you all again. :smileywink:

Re: Thanks to Lauren, Rosemary, and the group!

Lauren  , Rosemary and Rachel for a whole month I can say you became part of my family, friends and my everyday life.  I was able to share my thoughts with you , make some questions get some answers and learn more about you and everyone in this board.

 

The experience of enrichment I received from this board has clearly changed my life, and Before I Fall has marked me in so many ways I can't thank you enough.Thanks for becoming a part of my life even if it was only for a month I will remember this forever

 

Looking forward for the next First Look selection.

Lauren, Rosemary and all,

Thanks for a great book to discuss and to pass on to my friends.

This book is excellent to recommend to other book clubs.

Enjoy the release of your book.

Be sure and visit the virtual party when you stop by to visit. The food is still there.

Re: Thanks to Lauren, Rosemary, and the group!

I don't know if there's a proper way to thank you, Lauren & Rosemary, for taking time to participate in our discussions and answering our questions. It's great to be able to actually talk to an author, because to me, their the only celebrities I truly acknowledge and care about.

 

:] Thank you for such an awesome book and for being around!

I also would like to thank Lauren and Rosemary tremendously! This discussion has been wonderful and Before I Fall was one of the best books I have read all year! I can't wait to read whatever Lauren Oliver writes next, as I know she has the power to move people with her writing :smileyhappy:
