As your moderator, I will be joining in the discussions. B&N's online book clubs are a unique environment for discussion. Please contribute often, as this will keep the conversation flowing and the discourse lively.
If you haven't yet gotten a copy of Lisey's Story, I personally recommend that you do. It is an excellent read. I found myself completely immersed in it, and could not put it down.
I look forward to hearing your opinions and thoughts about the novels.
Please post your own introduction so that we can all get to know each other better.
Enjoy the group!

The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon and Apt Pupil are two I really enjoyed as well. How did you like the style of The Girl? I wasn't sure I was going to like it at first, but a little bit in I found it very appropriate and gripping.

Right now, though, Stephanie, I am on a couple of these book groups as well, and am wondering how to get rid of the messages I have read. I always used to "refresh" on the old system. I guess I am a bit confused with this new system, too!
Thanks in advance for any tips!

There are lots of options, and trust me when I say, you can't break it, so feel free to click around until you're set up the way you feel most comfortable. As I find what works best, I'll be sure to share.

having read the cell when it came out i found it sadly lacking in anything that made me like king's early work ie salem's lot or the shinning etc.
how would you rate his new book compared to these

It would be really interesting to have a true book club with him answering questions! .....but it would probably be impossible to get him away from writing a book for very long
(anyone ever read umney's last case? )

I don't know if it's because I'm older now, or just that it was so graphic, but I couldn't get into CELL. However, I'm really enjoying LISEY'S STORY so far.

It would be astounding to have Stephen King in the discussion- I don't think it'll happen, but I surely can believe that his posts would be peppered with "bleeps" - I think he just can't help it.
