Re: News about Paul

Hi, Paul, I truly will miss your wonderful FL selections and you've brought different realms of reading and new authors for us to review. I'm excited about your new position and glad it is in the book market. You've made your mark here at B&N and you deserve to go on and enjoy a different perspective of the world of books. I certainly wish the best for you and please do keep us informed as to your future endeavors. But I am sad you are leaving. It seems since I've been on B&N, that you have been there too. For that you will be missed by everyone whose life you have touched here.

Thanks a lot for all the work you put into First Look. The club was just what I needed and I am glad for your setting it up.

Good luck in your next facet of your work experience.

Re: News about Paul

Paul,

 

My first book with you was back when we did Of Bees and Mist (11 FL selections ago! I can't believe I've been with this group that long). You were great back then and you were amazing up until the end. Congratulations on choosing some amazing texts for the readers and I hope your new position will be as fulfilling as this one has been for us AND for you (was it? haha).

 

Maybe next year you'll come back and surprise us with a special selection?!

 

Take Care,

  Hi Paul,

 

  First of all let me thank you for all of your hard since First Look started.  You have been the corner stone of our little community, and I for one will surely miss you.  Yours shoes will be hard to fill.  Paul, you have kept all of us sane, when things weren't going well for us, such as our books not arriving and of course the little pep talks you give us. 

  I do want to congratulate you also, on your new position.  I'm sure that you will do a GREAT job.  We will miss you, and hope that you stop by now and then. 

 

 

Mike

Hi Paul

Congratulations, you are going to be greatly missed. If I'm correct you have been here with First Look since it began, or at least since I started.

I wish you the best of everything in your new position and don't forget to stop by once in a while and let us know how you are doing.

Best Wishes

Hi guys,

 

We have some wonderful (bad) news about our well-loved admin, Paul. He has accepted an excellent new position that will take him away from the B&N book clubs. So--we might feel quite sorry for ourselves--but we need to be thrilled for Paul, and wish him the best!

 

If you'd like to give him thanks and kudos for all his wonderful leadership and support in First Look (and in the rest of the clubs) and send him off with your best wishes, please use this thread!

Re: News about Paul

Hi Paul,

I want to congratulation you on your new opportunity .You did such an amazing job for all of us in the book clubs. I know I am going to miss you because somehow you made me feel I was one of your friends. I have been with First Look Book club since it started and I have to say that I have read books that I wouldn’t have read. What you need to know is that you did a great job, and you really do deserve this new opportunity.

 

 Like someone said earlier thewanderingjew ," All I can say is that you did more than your job description, you went the extra mile when necessary, and that makes you the best there is and I am pretty sure you will be an asset wherever you go and whatever you do.” So what I have to say to you thank you so very much. You are a very special person in my eyes, and best wishes always.
