Re: Schedule Change (Please Read!)

I'll be in travel for a few days and don't know if my book has already arrived. I waited for it before new year's party but it was a bit late. I'll be back home this week and hope it is there. See you on discussion.

Re: Schedule Change (Please Read!)

My nook is charging right now, so I haven't had a chance to do much yet.  It needs to fully charge before downloading the first book, which I hope to do tonight.  I need to start on Eternal, though, too!  Oh, the difficult choices one must sometimes make....!!  :-)

The UPS man just came now at almost 730 pm!  I was happy to see it was the book, and my pup was glad to see the UPS man as that guarantees her a dog treat! 

 

Thanks again for the book.   Looking forward to reading/discussing it.

Thanks Jen - It arrived last night - woohoo! 

 

Can't believe I'm only on page 68 and am already loving Cobb :smileywink: - Can't wait for some quite time tonight to get some more reading in.

 

Thanks! ~ Tammy

BONUS DAY!!!!

Both my book AND my nook arrived just minutes ago!  Now I'm torn...start reading the book, or read a book on nook!  Guess I'd better get reading on the book since discussion starts next week.  What a great day!  :-)


 

Leeza14: 

 

How do you like your nook?  I'm so torn as to whether I want one or not...

I'm not Leeza, but I LOVE my nook!! I carry it around in my purse and pull it out to read every chance I get. (Even when I'm waiting in line to checkout at Walmart!) I'm surprised that it's even possible, but I've been reading more now than I did before. Downloading books is a breeze, and you can carry an entire library with you with no extra stress on your back or shoulder.

 

And while I'm here... I'm retracting my last message about the participants spreadsheet. I said I wasn't going to send out any more revisions after last weekend. Well... there are about 20 new names I need to add, so I'll update it and send it out again this weekend. (Boy, whoever it was that told me it was hard to try and keep up with everyone - you weren't kidding!!!)

 

Oh, one last thing. I got my book today in OKC, OK. I plan to dive into it over the weekend.

Hi Eveyone, ReadingPatti here. I got my book on Monday. I am in Pennsylvania. I was glad to see the yellow card in my P.O. Box. I also got my alumini directory from my university that I graduated from. It was a nice surprise since I was not expecting it until the end of the month.

 

This First Look book looks really good.

 

See you all at the dicussion.

Re: Schedule Change (Please Read!)

Well I am all set! I didn't even read this until after my book had already arrived and I was already 123 pages into the book! LOL! I guess I will be fine!

I am a writer. One thing I’ve learned in the course of my career is that what makes a writer is...Writing. Not talking about writing or hanging out with writers, not publicity or promotion or social networking, not even getting published. Writers write. We put into words whatever is true or interesting, titillating or inspiring, entertaining or provoking. That is our job. That defines us. If we get lucky, we get paid. But there is value and dignity in the work, whether we are driven by an inner need or the need for a paycheck, whether we make money at it or not.

Re: Schedule Change (Please Read!)

Thanks goodness, I just received the book!  I will keep up with the new schedule as well!~ 

 

It looks like my book had another mailing label stuck on the back of the cardboard for a business in a nearby town.  Must have happened at one of  the distribution centers or in the truck itself! 

 

So pleased I will be able to participate.

Hi Leeza14!  Let me know how you like your nook!  I was so tempted to get one but decided to wait as I'm not sure if I'd like it.  I LOVE holding a new book in my hands and carrying it with me, etc.  Although I love technology, I'm just not sure if I want to give up a real book yet!

Hi Vermont,
Happy New Year for you and your family, a wonderful year! Unfortunately my book has not arrived yet. I'm still waiting for it.
