I got my copy yesterday, too. Compared to PARALLEL WORLDS, this'll be an easy read.

:-O Wow, what a variety of subjects we're taking up this year!

theresa and trygirl, Loser's Town is definitely a much easier and faster read than Parallel Worlds. A definite change of pace!

I should be getting my copy on March 14th, and I too will hopefully be ready to discuss. I can't wait to get started. The excerpt really grabbed my attention. :goodvibes:

Got my notice today that my copy of Loser's Town shipped yesterday. Hoping it will make it to my hands by Friday. Spending next week in Florida had planned on finishing PWwhile there, but may not have the patients to wait starting LT! :yahoo:

Glad you received your copy, IngridN. It's a quick read. Even I, the slow reader that I am, might have it finished this weekend.

I am going to order a copy of Loser's Town this weekend. I'm not sure if I should order a used copy or a new copy. I think the success of a book is measured by the number of books sold...:perplexed:

Yes I received my copy Liz and although it's a large sized paperback the font is quite big so it shouldn't take too long to read. :cool:
