Update to all:
Wow, I am gripped by this story. I am making notes as I read so I'll have reference points when the posts begin, but have promised myself I'll stay on track (no lagging, no racing forward) so everything will be as fresh as possible in my mind!
I came home today to find my ARC on my porch and I was so excited. I never got an acceptance message and since this is my first FL, I assumed I didn't make it in. I am truly happy to have the privilege to participate. I look forward to the book club experience and am thrilled to have the chance at discussion with Ms. Mitchell herself. I will make myself follow the schedule, as I don't want to miss anything!

After a long absence I'm back! I was too busy with my university tasks. So many obligations!
I can't wait for our discussion. I'm enjoying the book so much. The story is involving. It's completely different of previous ones. They also were involving but the plot is very different. See you soon!
Great to have you back and this time with book in hand!!

Hi I'm Nancy. I live with a dog and a man out here in the outback of Nebraska. I am looking forward to reading this book because in the timeframe of the book my ansestors were stuggling on a homestead in Nebraska. Talk to you all soon, Nancy
Hi Nancy - I like how you listed the dog first!

I'm Linda from northern Virginia and this is my first First Look. Finished the book a couple of days ago and I'm really looking forward to the discussion tomorrow.

I'm Cheryl from Minnesota. This is my first "First Look" book. I wasn't quite sure what to expect but I started Under This Unbroken Sky and couldn't put it down.

Cheryl, You picked a good one to start with. This is my 3rd First Look book and is my favorite. Can't wait to start discussing.

Hi everyone, my name is Alicia and I live in Kansas City, MO. Books and reading are a passion - so much so that I have my own home library. This is my first B&N book discussion so I am looking forward to it immensely. I cannot wait to discuss the book - it was very thought provoking.
Thank you Barnes and Noble for offering such a great program!
