How to Get Your Free Reading Copy and Enroll in the Discussion

[ Edited ]

REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED.

 

 

We're happy to announce that our next First Look selection is Of Bees & Mist, a novel by Erick Setiawan.


This richly atmospheric debut is a beautiful, engrossing fable of three generations of women in two families; their destructive jealousies, their loves and losses, their sacrifices and deeply rooted deceptions, and their triumphs. Setiawan will join our discussion in June, months before the book will be published!

You will receive a free advance reading copy and access to the discussion with the author. The ARCs will mail soon and the discussion will begin on June 1st. The book club will be visible to the public, but only those enrolled will be able to post on the board and discuss the book with the author and other readers.

While we are happy to share this free book with you, the best way to ensure that we can continue offering this program to readers is for every recipient to come back and participate in the discussion. If you cannot find the time for the discussion that will be conducted from June 1st to June 26th, please do not submit a request.

Here is how to enroll:

 

1. Sign in 
If you are not signed into your book club account, please sign in from the link in the upper left of this page. This is important. If you don't sign in, you will not be able to request a book. If you are having trouble signing in, please click here for more information.

If you are not a registered book club user, you can create an account by clicking on the register link in the upper left of this page. It's easy, and it's free.

2. Submit your information  
Now that you are signed into your account, click on the small envelope icon above the list of boards. Click on New Message* and enter the following information into the window, as described below:

Paul,

My pm sent itself before I could finish writing all my information, so I sent another one. Just wanted to let you know in case you got two from me.

Hi Paul,

I just have a question about the registration. Are things a little different this time? Usually when I try to register I am taken directly to the PM window and the address and subject are already filled in. This time I had to do that myself and I was wondering if that was correct or has the quota already been filled? I'm probably just obsessing and I apologize in advance.      Thanks! PB684:smileyhappy:

 

 

P.S. I posted this question on the thread entitled "Stay Tuned..." but copied it here because I think that may have been the wrong place to ask...sorry if you see it twice.

I was thinking the same thing... wondering if i did it right since the last time the link opened the window for me.

 

Looking forward to reading the book. I Ordered Dan Browns book which isn't due til September and I need some good reads for in between.

I had the same problem as well. Does this mean that Ponie will get a box of the book?  Goodness, she will be very busy reading and posting!!

Re: How to Get Your Free Reading Copy and Enroll in the Discussion

Okay, Paul, I have been a bad, bad, bad, bad girl!!:smileysad:  My daughter is at school in Nashville, TN (at Belmont College) and she asked me to register her so she could get on board for this wonderful ride! :smileywink: If she gets her confirmation, this will be her first First Look, but we both had to use my email - sign-in until she gets back home next week and can register!

 

I hope this will be okay and won't knock me out. I don't think I could stand not participating in this!!

But I think I need to give that a rest!!!!), one for the ipod, one for the kindle...hey wait a minute, I don't have a kindle!!!! 

No, really, one copy will do me just dandy.:smileyvery-happy:

Sent my message twice

[ Edited ]

Paul,

 

I ended up sending two messages by mistake. I was too excited and hadn't included my phone number the first time, but I sent all the info in the second message. 

 

This book sounds really interesting and I'm excited to this novel by an Asian author.:smileyhappy:


Thank you!
