Re: Welcome and Introductions

First I want to thank Paul for helping me do the sign up the right way lol.  It went soooo smooth.  And thanks to everyone else who replied thank you.  It looks like this will be a great book to discuss and great people too

Paul

I got my confirmation. Thank you, and B&N, very much.

 

I've enjoyed reading, and discussing, every First Look book that I've signed up for.

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hi Everyone,

 

  Well I also received my confirmation today.  B&N is definitely working overtime on this one.  

It's nice to see so many new people as well as the (Old Timers)  LOL back for another new read.  It looks like it's going to be a great one.

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Paul - you've truly outdone yourself this time. Confirmation emails the next day? It's almost instant gratification, I love it!

You will get a private message that says confirm, when you sign in look right above your statistics which has your name etc.. it'll say dashboard • preferences • messages , if you have a message it will say so.
I hope this helps

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Paul, I'm so discouraged!  So many posts from people who have received their confirmation already, and I sent my email request at 12:39 EDT yesterday.  Did it get lost or were that that many in front of me.  I'll try to be patient!

Re: Welcome and Introductions

No need to be discouraged -- and this applies to everyone! -- the process on this end is labor intensive. More confirmations will go out early next week, so, as you say, please be patient.

Hi, I am Vivian from Oklahoma. (Where it is currently running over 100 degrees wayyy too early!) I have been in on all of the first look clubs but two I think. Looking forward to the book and the discussion. It does look very different from the last two, kind of a historical novel maybe? I am up for that!

 

Oh and Paul, thank you, thank you, thank you, for locking the news, schedules and updates thread right off the top! Wonderful! :smileywink:


Hey Vivian;

 

Hey there;

So you are in here too!  That is great!  Are you doing other clubs this time? I am going to be some busy this month so don't know if I will take on any more of this month anyway.

Are you all still suffering from all the heat also. ??   We sure are down in Virginia.      Linda

Hello Everyone,

 

My name is Michele and this is my first B&N book club.  I'm really looking forward to this book and even more to the discussion.  I love how books can elicit so many different thoughts and ideas from people.

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hi all,

Another one from the cool and wet Western Massachusetts. I don't have a dog but have two cats who get cranky when I ignore them when I read.... 

A record for the confirmation less than 24 hours.

Patiently waiting for the Weather to improve.. Hopefully before the 11th when I go heat to Maine for vacation.
