Hi everyone,

I'm from Northern NJ and have 3 kids 16, 13,and 12. I'm so glad BN picked this book! I read that Kathryn Stockett, the author of The Help, recommended this book and I immediately put it on my TBR list.

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hi,

 

I'm a pathologist working in the Bronx but living in Brooklyh.  The only free time that I have for reading is in my long commute from Brooklyn through Manhattan to the Bronx and back everyday.   I have been a FL member since Physick Book of Deliverance Dane, Of Bees and Mist and Under This Unbroken Sky.  My favorite so far was Under This Unbroken Sky.

 

This is a great program and works well for me because it exposes me to great books and the timeframe to finish each one.

 

Thanks so much and I hope to be part of this next FL book offer.

 

Randy

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hi,

 

I'm Gaby from Brooklyn, NY (by way of Manila, Philippines, Boston, Philadelphia, New Hampshire & Connecticut).  I'm a corporate lawyer who used to practice in Manila and in a big law firm in NYC.  I've been trying to start my own practice, but it's been slow going.  I've been busy with pro bono work, volunteering for my condo, and through fellow First Lookers have discovered the world of book blogs.  I've started my blog, Starting Fresh and usually post my reviews there, on Barnes  & Noble, Goodreads, Librarything and a few more sites.

 

I participated in FL several times before and love it. Not just for the generous gift of a book, but the selections are always unusual and interesting and the discussions are great fun.  I'd raved about it so much that my husband Randy joined. It's particularly fun to discuss the books at home as well.

 

Thank you so much. I hope that I'm part of the Post Mistress FL group!

 

Gaby

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hi everyone,  I'm Carolyn from northern Virginia.  The kids will be going back to school in a few days so it will be the perfect time to sink my teeth into a new book.  I've participated in FL since the 4th or 5th book and have enjoyed the thought-provoking discussions.  The Postmistress looks very interesting.  I love this book club.  It has lifted me out of my reading comfort zone and the discussions have really kept me on my toes.  It's like an adult English class, a class that you actually want to do your homework for!

Re: Welcome and Introductions

I agree, Gaby.  The previous FL selections have been unusual and interesting.  That's what I love about this book club!

Hi! I'm Sandy from Georgia and I am excited at the possibility of being part of this book club.  I am the mother of two grown children, grandmother of four (all under 6!), and an avid reader.  I was honored to read Under This Unbroken Sky and learned lots from the discussions.  I am a member of a Book Club here in Macon and I am always searching for a good read to be used with the group.  Looking forward to it!

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Central CT.   Western MA is beautiful, and Fall is right around the corner.

 

 

Assuming I get the book, I'm going to try to get my wife to read it as well.  It sounds right up her alley.
