Hi, I'm Jill and this will be my 4th FL club. After starting the first one I decided to also start a book blog and it has been a fun creative outlet. Somehow FL sort of lead into the blog. I am looking forward to reading this and participating in the discussion!

Im from Spain and this would be my first time participating in First Look. I love to read and the book seems very interesting.
Nice to meet you all!

I am Dottie from Massachusetts - lead two book groups and participate in a 3rd one, write reviews for the local paper and pretty much read without ceasing.

I am from Minnesota. I have been in several First Looks. I just finished Truly, Madly for the Romance board.
It was very good. Looking forward to another good discussion.

This will be my 2nd FL Club book. I enjoyed the last one so much and look forward to participating again this go round. I really enjoyed the discussions to see what others felt too. The last book was a very good one and this one looks like it will be too.

Just signed up. I am Emily from Maryland and have participated in many First Look's. Although I was way behind on the Postmistress because I was traveling, I am ready to participate fully in this one! I also belong to two book clubs in Baltimore. I wish I had more time to read!

My name is Eadie and I have participated in several First Look book selections and have enjoyed each one. I live in beautiful Bucks County PA. I am looking forward to this river adventure. I also believe that being in touch with nature brings you more in touch with yourself. Living in Bucks County PA allows me to do that on a daily basis.
I am currently reading "Push Not The River" and hope to follow with the sequel "Against A Crimson Sky".

Hi! I'm Laura. I live on the south coast of Maine. I'm a regular on the B&N book club boards and have participated in several First Look discussions.
You can read more about me and see what I am reading or have read in my B&N profile.
Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.

I'm Amanda, I've participated in several First Look discussions and always love them and get so much out of them. Hopefully I can be included in this one as well.
I live in Canada with my husband and two children. I love to read and I always make sure to get time to myself to do so.
Looking forward to the discussion! (It feels like forever since we've talked about a book, no?)

I am in for another First Look. I just signed up. Can't wait to get started on this interesting book. I like that FL gives us a variety of different books and genre. All the books are different, and I get exposed to reading that I might not pick up on our own. I am from the midwest - NW suburb or Chicago.

My name is Erin and this will be my first FL book club. I live in Lexington, South Carolina and love to read. Can't wait to chat about the book and see how this goes.

Hi fellow book lovers!
My name is Kelly; I'm 30ish and live in a small town in Iowa. Currently a stay at home parent with three kids.
I've participated in a few of these book clubs now; unfortunately I missed out on The Postmistress since we were on vacation when the sign up started. I am looking forward to this read, and very excited to see part of it is set in Yellowstone, which has been one of my favorite vacation destinations (and where we were when I missed The Postmistress registration!).

I'm Melissa, the reader-mod for "Literature by Women" here at BNBC, and I've been in every FLBC since the beginning (sorry about The Postmistress - the book and I were not agreeing with each other for some reason so I wasn't able to post much about it). Glad to see so many first timers signing up along with the old hands
I read and knit and dance. Compulsively feel yarn. Consume books. Darn tights. Drink too much caffiene. All that good stuff.

Looking forward to Eternal on the Water. My residence is in west centrall WI, but I spend a lot of time traveling to AK, northwestern MN, southern NC, Orange Beach, AL and any other destination that beckons! But I always travel with more books than I can possibly read. Time to read and travel is one of the perks that retirement from teaching provides.
