Hi everyone, we decided to read Catherine Anderson's Annie's Song as our first book for the Virtual Romance book club.  

I will post a thread on September 15th listing some questions for discussion. 

The beginning of September we will start soliciting ideas for October's book.

I'm in this month and this can count for the Serial Readers Challenge as well as I think.

I'm in. Going to the UBS today to get my copy. She's got a ton of Catherine Anderson, so I'm hoping to find it there.

Yay, my UBS had it! Got that one, plus blew $20 books on various other Reminder List books. Good day. :-)

I just read this a few months ago and don't want to read it again, so if anyone has trouble finding a copy let me know and I'll post my copy to you.  I checked it last night and it is postable.  Just PM me if you want it.(taken)  I may (or may not) participate in some discussion as I just finished it, but won't be reading it along with you guys.  Is that ok with y'all?

That is totally OK with me. :)  If you remember it then by all means, would love to have your input.

well neither ubs near me had it so gonna see if my coworker's library has it...ooops no luck there either.

Hey is anyone here on bookmooch? If so could you order it for me if it's there and I'll buddy you a pbs credit in exchange? I can pm my address...I figure it's not highly wishlsted since there's no one wishing for it here and readable is fine with me.

It's on my RL WL so if I can find a copy in a USB, I'll participate (already checked and my library doesn't have a copy).

It's not available on Bookmooch.  I can read it quickly and send it to you Susanna.  I don't think mine will be postable when it's done. Readable but not postable.  Or borderline at best. 

I can't start it until I finish my game book though. I have to mail that by Monday and I still have about 300 pages left-tradesize.  But I can probably have it read in the mail by early next week.   PM if you find it somewhere else. 

Well shoot. I thought this was part of a series but it isnt'. I was hoping I could read it as part of the Serial Challenge swap.  Maybe I'll read it tomorrow-I'll see if I can finish my game book tonight. 

Darn. Can't read it tomorrow either-gotta meet my parents halfway between MD and MA to get my kid back. I'll take it to the gym today and start it on the exercise bike.

It was an excellent book, but not part of a series Mary.

I wouldn't mid participating, but it was a DNF for me - I'm in the hated it crowd too:P  I can maybe go by the UBS later & see if they have a copy (and provided I can actually finish it this time:P) I would be interested in discussing it.  It really pushed my buttons.

Sounds like we will have some good conversations around it.  I have never read this author so I don't know what I am in for.  I am looking forward to starting it.

Anderson is a new-to-me author for me, as well. Sounds like this should be interesting. :-)

The rape scene is not graphic.  I read that part while on the treadmill this morning.  So I'm liking the book.  I spent 45 on a steep incline reading it this morning.

I had no luck finding this at the UBS today so I'll have to sit this game out, Coach.
