Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hello, everyone! I know I'm late in entering the discussion, but I wanted to introduce myself anyway. I'm Keri, and I'm from northeast PA. This is my 1st opportunity participating with the First Look club, and I'm very excited to be part of it. I have loved reading since I was a child, and love catching up now, being on break from school.

 

I hope everyone enjoys the book!

I've just received my copy of Eternal on the Water and I'm starting on it straight away. Looks like I may be a little late but  we had a postal strike which slowed up mail after Christmas. Thanks once again, I'm looking forward to the discussion.

Michelle -- your days are full!  Congratulations on fitting in the time to read -- perhaps you are like some of us who need to read to live!

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hello Everyone-

I live in Nebraska with my husband and 2 sons -- who have just been a great help to me over the last few weeks.  So sorry to just be joining --- I have been reading this wonderful book on and off that last couple of weeks; however, I  have also been dealing with the aftermath of a black widow spider bite to my face --- after almost 2 weeks I am beginning to mend; please be patient as I am still recovering.  I truly am looking forward to reading more.

Glad to hear that you are recovering.

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hello All,

Elizabeth from South Carolina.  Life time reader.  First time "First Look"er - first on-line book club experience.  

 

First blunder.  Signed up - didn't check for confirmation.  Waited for book to arrive - delivered week and a half ago - read - and just signing in.  Enjoyed meeting Cobb and Mary and journeying with them in Eternal on the Water.  Now looking forward to group discussions, catching up and joining in.

 

I am a discussion board and blog novice.

Elizabeth -- WELCOME!

 

A First Look board can be a little overwhelming at this stage, even for old timers.

 

Sample what you like and enjoy yourself.

 

We look forward to your posts if and when you want to do so.  But do lean back and savor this first experience.

 

Look forward to your observations.

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Greetings fellow readers.  This is my 10th First Look Book Club.  I really enjoyed The House at Riverton and The Physik Book of Deliverance Dane.  I am looking forward to reading a romance novel set in the great outdoors, especially since I spent many summers at camp in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hi,

Thank you for saying the board can be overwhelming. With so many posts, it is hard to know what to say without being redundant. It is also hard and time-consuming to get through all the posts. Is there a secret to this?

 

I'm also wondering whether the author is done answering questions. I went to the last post in his thread and was confused as to how to post a new question without doing a "reply".

 

Thanks from a newbie.....

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hello Readers,

 

   No mail strike, but Houston may have been one of the last areas to receive the book. I hope to travel to Maine this summer, so I was excited to read about the setting in the preview. This is my third experience with First Look and well worth the wait!
