Re: Welcome and Introductions

Heya, Please call me Autumn. I am a Nook owner and I saw the writing circle come over facebook and I felt it deserved a looksee. My usual genres are classical, fantasy and sci-fi. But I do have a desire to expand my reading options. I look forward in reading this book and discussiing it with you.

Hello. My name is Sheri and I live in Northern California. I just received my Nook as an early Mother's Day present and also saw the post for the Book Club on Facebook. This is the very first Book Club I've ever joined. I'm looking forward to the experience and reading the book.

Hi everyone!  My name is Athena and this is my first FL.  With a library (with more than half of the books being in hardcover) instead of a formal living room in my home, I never, ever, thought I would buy an ebook reader.  I bought a NOOK in February and adore it!  I didn't believe people when they told me that it felt like reading a paper book, but it really does.  I still buy my beloved books and still prefer them in hardcover, but my NOOK comes with me everywhere now; I love being able to carry a bunch of books with me without carrying their weight!

 

This isn't my usual genre, but I'm looking forward to being involved.  :smileyhappy:

Hi Jack,
Click on the "reply", bottom lower right hand corner of a post, to respond to it.  Then click on "Quote" upper right hand corner of this dialogue box so you have the original post with your response.  Then the cursor will have a mind of its own as to where you start typing.
I will have to check out your website as I do read a lot of historical fiction.

Thanks for the welcome. Had to chuckle about "crossing over to your side" comment. I was on "your side" long before I was on the "other side".  You can see a list of my books at my web site. I also have a blog where I chat about writing Jack Cavanaugh's Word Forge  Look forward to reading and discussing The Writing Circles.

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hi All,

I got confirmed!  I know the big brown truck will not be coming to my house this time so I'll just have to wait very anxiously for my e-book.  In the meantime I'm reading In The Fall by Jeffrey Lent for my library bookclub.

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hello Again all FL'ers,

This will be uncharted territory for me. Since I don't have a nook, Kindle, or IPad I will have to read this new book the "old fashioned" way...on my PC!  I will miss having a real book to hold, but I'm  I'm up for the challenge!

Re: Welcome and Introductions

 

Welcome to First Look, everyone--
I'm Rachel and I'll moderate our group this month. All our new folks will find our regulars are wonderfully welcoming and excellent advisors for all the tips and tricks of getting settled in to our electronic book clubs. 
This will be a new experience for all of us. I'm always curious to learn how reading (or listening) in different formats and contexts affects how we relate to a book, and this is our first venture into electronic reading as a group. I love the solid wonderful print book, but I'm also pretty excited to think of how many trees might be spared by the e-reader, and how many boxes I could NOT take with me during my next move. 
I live in North Carolina. I've got two young daughters and a golden. I work for the public library (so I hang out around books pretty much all day every day.) Can't wait to get started! 
Rachel

Re: Welcome and Introductions

My name is Renee and this is my 2nd First Look. I thoroughly enjoyed "The Poacher's Son" and expect to be equally thrilled with "The Writing Circle". I live about an hour north of Charlotte, NC. I have a nook and I am excited that this book will be offered as an e-book!

Hi, I'm Midge Frazel

 

I am an educator, writer and genealogist. I have been reading electronically for a long time as I own (and it still works) a Rocketebook. I also read on my various Palm based handhelds and on my new nook. I have only had my nook for a few months. It was a gift from my son-in-law who knows what a geek I am!

 

I have my own Web site and three blogs.I am an avid gravestone photographer.

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hi everyone!

 

I am from the little ole' state of Rhode Island, and this will be my first time in a FL bookclub! I have a Nook, which I adore and carry it around like it's a piece of gold, always in my purse :-) I am also a recent college graduate, and studied English so it will be nice to get into some discussions about the book.
