Re: Welcome and Introductions

I've had my book for about 2 weeks but I am trying to be disciplined and NOT read it before the discussion starts because I find it hard to participagte in the discussion when I know the ending. However, my curiousity is piqued and I could have finished the book by now. I'm on page 83 and trying to stay disciplined!

Welcome Muzby!

 

How was the discussion in the other FL club you participated in?  I am interested to see if there is good interaction & discussion about passages and if folks find differences within the same story line?

Welcome BethAnnH from Pittsburg Penna

 

That is my home town, of many years ago.  Miss the steel city in so many ways.  Love Virginia though.

 

I look forward to dialogue & discussion about "The Wake of Forgiveness" - already 3/4 of the way done & it is turning out better than I initially figured.

I could not stop once I started, so I just took notes and wrote in my book, which I never do...but I just got hooked!

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hello! I have participated in a few of the first look books and enjoyed them all. I am an avid reader and always up for a new book recommendation. FL encourages me to try books that may not be in my normal genre. Looking forward to this book. Thanks for the opportunity!

Hi

 

My name is Jenny and I live in Hickory, NC. I'm married with 3 kids and work part time. I enjoy reading a variety of books. This is my 3rd 1st look book. I liked the first one, really didn't like the second one and have not decided on this one yet. I'll look forward to hearing what other people have to say about it.
