I am also looking forward to reading The Believers & participating in the Book Club. Thanks, Jeannie!
I am Dre from New Jersey and I read a lot.

My name is Kristen and I am excited about being a part of this First Look book club. I have been a part of a few others and have enjoyed them immensely. I have never read any of Zoe Heller's other books so this will be a first for me.

My name is Irene and I live in Saratoga Springs, NY. I received my book today!! Thanks, B&N First Look Book Club.
Am very excited to be a part of an online book discussion group; my first.
Nice quote, Kristen...

I'm baaack...and I'm in!! Can't wait to join in on another First Look reading. Got a little sidetracked with Stewart O'Nan after Songs for the Missing - read The Circus Fire and Prayer for the Dying. And continued my pursuit of George Sand (after The Black City in Literature by Women) by reading Mauprat.
Hi Choisya! Hi Everyman!

For those of you keeping track of the books spreading across the country, my book arrived this morning to Charlottesville, Virginia.
Karen, have you decided how we're going to discuss the book (in linear sections, by themes, by characters)? It would be helpful to me to know, so I can decide how to read the book. There's no rush, as I have a to-read stack that would probably hurt me if it fell on top of me.
I'm looking forward to October 20!

I can't wait to start the book. I have been meaning to read What was she thinking? Notes on a Scandal so I was thrilled to see her new book as a first look book club choice.

I'm so happy you've chosen The Believers! Whether you're new to Heller or you've read some of her previous works, I think you'll enjoy this one tremendously.
I'll be posting the discussion schedule by the end of the week so stay tuned! Like last time, we'll have concurrent discussions for those who are reading incrementally and those who want to read straight through and then discuss. (For those of you joining First Look for the first time, this will make sense when you see the schedule )

I'm Jen. I just signed up. I haven't read Zoe Heller's books before. I'm looking forward to it. It was a tough choice between the two First Look selections.
