I'm looking forward to reading something that hasn't been assigned for a class and to discussing a book with non-English majors. I'm also really looking forward to reading this novel and very jealous of Colson Whitehead's excellent name.

I actually received my other First Look book before I got my confirmation email!!
Is it a lottery system or first come, first served?

Hi, Liisa22. It is first come, but we will start posting some big alerts if we've run out of books, and we will stop taking registrations altogether.
Great to see everybody here! Over the next couple of days, I'll begin to post a couple of threads to get us started as our books arrive and we all begin to dip into them.

Hello from Northern California --
I was very happy to get my confirmation this morning! I enjoyed participating in the previous "First Look" and am looking forward to this new book and new (to me) author.

Yeah, just got my confirmation! I'm in...Can't wait to start. My name is Sara, I live in Oceanside CA which is North of San Diego. I don't get a lot of time to read, so I'm hoping we only have to make it a few chapters in before the discussion begins. Although if it's one of those books I can't put down, all the better.

My name is Katelyn, and this will be my second First Look experience. I look forward to reading this book, and participating in the discussion as my first encounter with this program was such a positive one. At the moment I am emersed in the world of Shakespeare, and although I love his plays this book will be a nice break from old english.
