Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hello fellow FirstLookers,

 

My request has just been confirmed and I'm practically jumping with excitement because I love the concept of reading a book peeping hot out of the oven. This is my second First Look read and I hope it will be as enjoyable as the first one (The Sister by Poppy Adams), which ranks as one of my favorite novels.

 

I am looking forward to many interesting discussions with the other members.

 

Thank you Barnes&Noble

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hi,

 

I'm in Los Angeles, this is my first time being a B&N book club, and I'm excited! 

 

I'm looking forward to reading this book and hearing what you all think about it. I write a book blog called Coconut Library and am always reading and looking for new books to review. This one sounds particularly appealing to me!

After reading just the first page of introductions, I feel like the only male in here.........

 

My name is Brandon, and I just turned 20 a month ago. I've been kicking myself to read something, since I've managed to read almost nothing since I graduated from high school a little over a year ago. I'm a freshman at Florida International University, and majoring in Information Technology and minoring in Music. After reading the synopsis that popped up on my fan page from Facebook, I decided this is what I would challenge myself to read.

 

I look forward to discussing this book with every one of y'all, as much as I look forward to reading it! :smileyhappy:

Hi Brandon,

As others already replied you are not alone there are a few of us guys around though we are in the minority here. I'm 46 from western MA. This is my 6th first look. This group is a way to read things you would not have selected yourself to read.

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hello, everyone. I am new to First Look Book Group and am looking forward to the discussions.

 

I live in Orlando, FL. I am married and have 2 boys, ages 7 and 3. Despite my busy schedule--I work full-time--I try to find time to read every day. It's my way of getting some "me" time.

 

I'm really excited about joining this group.

Re: Welcome and Introductions

I just received my confirmation and am just thrilled.  I enjoy reading the wonderful selections provided by this book club.  I think my favorite was Deliverance Dane with Bees and Mist a close second.
