Re: Note about confirmations

Hi! My name is Emily and I currently live in Baltimore. I am happy we are getting a book and not an ebook. Although I am loving the portability and convenience of my nook, if we are going to discuss a book, I want to be able to flip through the book quickly to find quotes. It just is not the same on the nook.

 

This looks like an interesting book and not something I would have necessarily picked up otherwise. That is the best part of this book club, getting exposed to different types of books.

 

I look forward to discussing this book with everyone.

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hello All,

 

I have been here for most of the First Look selections since the beginning (almost).  I have been absent for a while, but it looks like I picked a good time to come back!  I am glad to see so many familiar names and glad to see so many new ones also!  I am looking forward to reading this book and joining in the discussions.  Can't wait to receive the book and get started.  Looks like we are going to have a great group!  :smileyhappy:

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hello from Minnesota.  I haven't read much in the historical fiction genre so I'm excited to read this one.  I've never been disappointed in a First Look selection.

Re: Note about confirmations

Thanks Rachel! Like Bookwoman718 I also signed up late Monday evening but have not received confirmation. I should be used to this by now but I am always nervous that I will miss it. I have been checking for the pm all day the last couple of days.

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hi, I'm Judy from South Florida.  I have been part of First Look for a while now.  I am an avid reader and have really enjoyed the thought-provoking discussions.  I didn't sign up for the last book, the ebook, so I'm glad this one will be a hardcopy.  Hoping I get my confirmation soon!

I think you will like it too. I just got confirmed and even though I have been a part of the First Look before, it is always a thrill to get confirmed. I think it is wonderful that we have so many new people joining this one. I can't wait to start reading and chatting with everyone.

Hi Cindy,

The FL is very addictive but also a disappointment when it concludes.  But then we start over with a new book.  Just as long as the cycle keeps continuing.  You will see, we are a very friendly group.

Re: Hi I'm Bonnie

I'm thrilled to be in on this First Look.  I only recently became a member of the forums and have been reading an ARC by Ken Scholes.  I love reading (and discussing!) and am trying to get in as much as I can before starting the last half of my Bachelor's degree in October.  I am a stay-at-home mom to two little boys (ages 1 and 3), Navy wife of 7 years and obviously a student.

I just got my confirmation, yeay! I am a 911 Operator for the City of Houston and I love to read. I have participated in several of these first look discussions & have enjoyed every one of them! It is a wonderful online discussion & I would highly recommend it to everybody. This one looks like a really good one, thanks for letting me join in the discussion :smileyhappy:
