Re: Community Room

I could use a little help.  I can't figure out how to post outside of the quotation marks when I respond to someone's post.  My computer won't let me click outside of the quote.  Any suggestions?  Prior to the change in layout I had no trouble.

Same here but so far I'm liking this layout better than the last one.  It's not so washed out.

Re: Community Room

If you read the Reliable Wife by, Robert Goolrick  you must read his non-fiction The End of the World as we Know It:smileyfrustrated:cenes

The End of the World as We Know It  from a life the character of Ralph is very autobiographical.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My favorite read this year has been Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by, Beth Hoffman if you read and enjoyed The Help CeeCee is a must read!

Also the FL Book The Poacher's Son is a Mystery/Thriller Must Read!

Re: Community Room

In order to quote and type up here. I have to wait after selecting Reply. It seems to have several refreshes going on. So after waiting, I click at the top of the reply box. Then I hit Enter several times. Pause. Then I select Quote. Then I go to the top of the reply box, put my cursor at the top most line and start my typing.

 

I had trouble typing at the bottom too. After you first see that reply box, wait, several refreshes. Select Quote. Pause. Then scroll to the bottom most line and put your cursor there. Only the bottom most line seems to be available.

 

Seems like a lot to go through to quote. But there is a lot of refreshing that seems to wipe out what I was typing.

Good Luck, pen21

I don't like this new layout!!!! It took me over 6 clicks to finally find the First Look threads; why aren't these featured on the "homepage" of the Book Clubs?

 

It does seem a lot more complicated now.  I guess if we wait they will just change it again though!

Re: Community Room

Dead until Dark (Sookie Stackhouse / Southern Vampire Series #1) (True Blood)  I just finished this and watched the first season of TrueBlood on DVD.  I enjoyed it and was glad to see that they stuck with the story better than they do on The Vampire Diaries.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also just read

Tempt Me If You Can 

 which is also set in Maine.  It was a romance with a mystery about a missing woman, an explosion and a set of GPS cooridinates.

Hi Zeal! :smileywink:

 

I love Jodi Picoult and am reading her latest book.  I've had the opportunity to meet her every year for the last four years and she is a wonderful, gracious author!

Anna Louise,

 

I LOVE House Rules, Jodi's latest!  I am almost finished with it.  It makes me really think about the students I have that have been diagnosed with Autism and Aspergers.

 

It is good to be back on the boards with you and everyone!

I am having a surprisingly hard time getting into/going with this book.  Has anyone else read it or had a similiar experience?  It is the March selection for a book club I am in.  Just curious what others have found.

I listened to this book on CD from the library.  It is like a lot of little stories that all tie together.  I like Rutherfurd's massive stories, but I can see how you would get sidetracked.  He is trying to show how New York grew and developed and if you are looking for a story about characters, you only get snap shots.  Try to step back and read the story as an overview.  Maybe that will help.

Re: Community Room

I definitely want to read "The End of the World As We Know". I really enjoyed "The Reliable Wife" even though it was very dark, it was a good read. Robert seems to have had a very abusive childhood. That is the reason for all the darkness. But, he is a very good writer! Thanks for sharing!

Re: Community Room

[ Edited ]

My favorite books about early New York (1882) are by Jack Finney.

Time and Again 

 

 

 

 

and

From Time to Time 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They are about time traveling also. Did anyone ever read these? Very interesting reading!

Two weeks ago, I picked up The Monsters of Templeton, the very first First Look Book Club selection, at a local rummage sale.  However, I will have to put this book aside because my copy of The Poacher's Son arrived on my doorstep yesterday. 

The Monsters of Templeton 

 

 

I really enjoyed reading The Monsters of Templeton. It was really different for me, but it is one of my favorite First Look books. Hope you enjoy! :smileywink:

 It is unfortunate that the Rutherford Book,is  broken up as Edie pointed out,into smaller stories if I read her post correctly,because the History of NY and the many stories connected with the city are so descriptive.It would be like me reading about your city,state Indiana,not knowing much about it and trying to piece it all together...The Jack Finny books look very interesting(I was raised in NY)..You probaby won't be the only one in your group that has the same feeling about the book..Hang in there,sometimes it takes a few more chapters into the book ,that brings it all together..Best..Vtc Susan

Re: Community Room

I really like the Jack Finney books. I just reread them this year.

 

Let us how the other book 'New York' is, if you get into the book more.

Some books take time, but others just don't grab you.
