You never fail to amaze me, Liz. How fantastic that you've gotten yet another author to participate!
Now I feel really bad about criticizing his spelling. :blush:

Huzzah!!! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: What fabulous news!!!!!

How kind of Mr Burroughs to speak so highly of ONBC and agree to answer our questions! And even after many of us expressed dismay with the style of the book. :blush: His compliments really make me proud of our book club, as if I wasn't proud enough of us already.

Liz and DITHOT, you ladies ROCK! Thank you for arranging this.

Absolutely fabulous news, Lucky Liz!!! Next time I'm in the same burg as you and Ma DITHOT, I'm gonna buy y'all both some moonshine!

After I read Burrough's comments in his blog that someone posted earlier in the week, I thought he sounded very approachable and down to earth. And, I hoped in my secret heart that you two were working on getting in touch with him. And it turns out I was right!

Excellent work! I'm looking forward to it. And I'm so glad he has been reading the wonderful tidbits and discussion here at ONBC. I think we have a lot to be proud of.

As I suspected, he is very approachable and gracious. :cool: I feel that we are all very lucky.

And I’ll take you up on that the next time I’m in town, Bloody Mary.
:-D
You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.

Great news Lucky Liz and Ma DITHOT! Thanks so much for your hard work!

I think someone set fire to my internet connection this week with a submachine gun so I'm typing away as madly as I can for now! :-O

This is outstanding news and what a great opportunity. I had considered reading the book before the movie and then thought I would rather wait until after seeing the film. Now I might have to reconsider this choice.

Thank you so much Liz and DITHOT for arranging this. I look forward to this conversation.

This is So exciting!! Thank you, Lucky Liz and Ma DITHOT. :bouquet: :bouquet:

I am so behind in my reading that I am sure that I won't have a question ready to ask in time but I will be most interested to see what the other Noodlemantras have to say and of course, to read Mr. Burrough's responses.

I am about halfway through the book now and am enjoying just lurking and reading the questions and responses.

Just wanted to post a congratulations to you ladies for the lovely compliment on the board. What exciting news that Mr. Burrough will take some questions.

I'm trying not to be so shy and jump in on the book discussion where I can. I too am only about 1/2 way through - I found it hard to get into but I am certainly enjoying it now.

Looking forward to seeing responses. I'm going to go back through what I have read to see if I can come up with a logical question to ask. But I will certainly be following along here on the boards.

Appreciate all the input and work that goes into these book discussions. :thanks!:

I do so hope to jump in once in awhile - guess this post is a start :noodlemantra:

Thank you for the invite.
I also just watched the History channel's 18 months of crime about Dillenger. It was really well done.
I have been excited about this project all along.
:cool:
Off to read! :snoopydances:
