I'm definitely interested in joining the book club this time around as well, I read Public Enemies before the film and was glad I did, I felt it really helped me understand the movie better. I've never really gotten around to joining many book clubs, so I'm really excited for this.

Oh goodie! Looking forward to your participation, too, Christie. :welcome:

Christie and Poppet, let me add my :twocents: and say we're glad you will be joining us for Alice (if it wins). :cool:

fansmom, I let the discrepancies go the second time...well mostly anyway...and allowed myself to just watch the movie. Okay, it may take another viewing or 7 to really let it go!
:lol:

Thanks for the welcome. I'm hoping Alice will be the next book, I managed to find a copy of Lewis Carroll's complete works last night in my attic. I was given it as a birthday present when I was a child, that was 20 years ago & I've never read it :blush: At least it will come in handy now :lol:

This is a copy that you have had for a long time?

It certainly is. I'm not quite sure how long but the print run dates from 1972 although I'm not sure I bought it then.Its been well read.

I picked up my copy Wednesday evening at Barnes & Noble- wow, do they have a lot of variations! Can't wait to start the discussion.

Mine's in the mail and I'm anxious to read it again. I am not sure that I've ever read Through the Looking Glass.
