Hi, I'm Julie from Dallas and this will be my fifth First Look read. I look forward to the book. My favorite so far has been THE PHYSICK BOOK OF DELIVERANCE DANE. Like the author, I am descended from the witch victims of Salem 1692. Katherine Howe described in detail my (nine greats) grandmother's hanging in detail. It was riveting.

I'm Kris. If I get in this will be my 3rd First Look. I didn't care for the last one, but Under This Unbroken Sky was amazing. This book looks great!

My name is Mike and I live in Western Massachusetts with my wife Donna and our dog Oscar. I have been involved with First Look since its inception and I have enjoyed most of the books that have been offered. B&N and First Look have a great reputation of picking wonder books and I'm sure that this selection will be no exception.
By the way I did get my confirmation yesterday, and I am patiently awaiting the arrival of Eternal on the Water, and I also look forward to another lively discussion.

My Name is Kelly, and I LOVE BOOKS! Reading is my # 1 hobby. It is the one thing I can do alone and escape all the craziness around me. This is my first time joining in on the First Look book discussions, and I am looking forward to talking with those that share my passion for books.

Hi! I'm Suzie. I've recently moved to Idaho and I'm still trying to get settled in my new home. What a beautiful place Idaho is!
I graduated from High School in Idaho! It IS beautiful country!!
How lucky you were to spend so much time here. This is the firs exposure I've had to Idaho and I just can't believe I have mountains all around me. The view out my back windows is mountains and before me is the valley. I feel like I live in a post card! I'm glad I moved here, certainly!

This is my first attempt at a book club. I'm not sure if I registered in time, so if not I'll have to wait for the next one. Should be interesting.

I just got approved and I am so excited. I haven't done this for a while and our local book club broke up as we moms got to busy with the kiddos sports and dance schedules
Happy to be back on board and it looks like a great book !!!

My name is Nancy, I live in Western Mass with my fiance and our beagle (Lilly) This will be my 5th First Look, so far I have loved most of them. I thought about taking a break as well, but I just can't stand the thought of missing out on a good book!
Just got my "confirmed" today. So now we all start waiting for the little brown truck...

Thanks for the welcome!! I'm looking forward to the group AND to getting my nook! I don't mind waiting until January; I have several books on my table waiting for me right now, so I need to get busy with those before I will feel good about ordering more books. Have a great evening!
