My name is Cathy and I just received my confirmation. I can't wait to read Sag Harbor -
it sounds like it will be a great read. I haven't read anything else by Colson Whitehead but,
may have to after I read Sag Harbor. I am always on the lookout for another author to
read. I have participated in other first looks and am quite pleased with the selection.

I am an avid reader, and am looking forward to participating in the discussion group. This will be my first experience with this type of forum.

I'm excited to read this author for the first time.
My name is Deb and I live in Long Island, NY. We have a place near Sag Harbor which is a beautiful area should you want to come and explore for yourself. What I love most about this forum is reading everyone's insights, it is actually amazing at times and adds so much to the experience. Can't wait!

Hi, I'm Katie from Charlottesville, Virginia, and this club will be my fifth First Look. I'm looking forward to receiving my book in the mail (my confirmation came today) and to reading it and participating in discussions with you all.
The last time we did a previously published author, I read a lot of his stuff before I got the ARC, and I think I got a little burned out by the time we got to discussion, so I'm going to let Sag Harbor be my first encounter with Colson Whitehead (also, I'm mid-semester and already behind in my work--theoretically I am going to read Moby Dick by 2 tomorrow!)
So off to read! See you all in a few weeks!

I received my confirmation message and am very excited to be part of this new First Look discussion. My name is Donna, and I love to read all kinds of books. This one looks very good, and I can't wait to start the discussion.

Hi everyone, I just got my notice that I will be participating in the Sag Harbor discussion. I really enjoy the First Look Book Club, because I get to read books I might not read.
My name is Tarri and I live in Washington state, midway between Seattle and the Canadian border. I am retired, so I have a lot of time to read, knit, and mow the lawn. This is my seventh (I think) First Look book and I can't wait to read and discuss.

I'm Suzi and I'm very excited to be participating in the Sag Harbor book club. I have Colson Whitehead's "The Intuitionist" in my to be read pile as we speak, so I'm very excited to be reading his latest novel. I can't wait to get started.
See you all on Feb. 16!

Can anyone recall what issue of the New Yorker had the excerpt of this book? Many thanks, Jo

Hello! My name is Janice and I live in Central Kentucky. My two children and I are recovering from a major ice storm and four days without electricity. What an eye-opening experience that was!
I am so glad to get the chance to participate in another First Look discussion. This book looks great and I cannot wait to get started reading it!

Hi! I'm Michelle. This is my 4th first look book through B&N. I am an elementary school teacher who wishes she had more time to read. I try to find a balance between books to challenge me, books to entertain me, and children's books. I just finished Wuthering Heights for the 3rd time!
I can't wait to read another "adult" book!
