I registered for this book, and I hope I get it. It sounds like a good book, and I look forward to the discussions.

I thought 'What Was She Thinking' was well written and the
characters well developed. It was an enjoyable read.
...have read Zoe Heller's What Was She Thinking? [Notes On A Scandal]....
Did you like the book of hers you read? I haven't read it but have heard it was good.

I am new here, New to book clubs, and am really excited about reading the book.
Because I am new, my question is, how does this all work?

I'm Kris.This sounds so cool. I have never been in a book club before. I hope that I get selected. Can't wait to read the book. It sounds very interesting.

I read and knit and dance. Compulsively feel yarn. Consume books. Darn tights. Drink too much caffiene. All that good stuff.

Hi Karen and gang it's me Debbie from Portage Des Sioux, MO (near St. Louis)
just got my confirmation so Yeah!!
I've been in the First Look book club since the beginning so this will be my 5th first look book. I have enjoyed all of them and for those of you just beginning with us I'm sure you'll love it too. I't s such an incredible experience to be able to talk with and have the authors answer your questions. The authors have been very generous with their time and that along with the great people we get to share our opinions with make this a wonderful experience.

I've read Zoe Heller before, and find her writing very thought-provoking. I've never looked at Judi Dench nor Cate Blanchett the same again after their performances in NOTES OF A SCANDAL.
I'm looking forward to sharing your thoughts about THE BELIEVERS in October.

I signed up on the 18th but haven't heard anything yet. Hope I make it. I have never read Zoe Heller. This sounds interesting.
simplicity of character is the natural result of profound thought

It is with books as with men; a very small number play a great part.

Thank you First Look Barnes and Noble. I received my confirmation message today. I am a retired elementary school librarian from New England. I also belong to an in-person book club with friends where we read a diverse selection of books and have fun getting together. I'm looking forward to reading The Believers and discussing it with everyone here.

I hope I'm not to late to get in. I just signed up. I've never done an online book club before but I thought since I love to read it would be a great experience so here I am. The Believers sounded like a great book. I can't wait to read it!
