Thanks for the map, Jane! Yeah, I think I got that far in the book previously and I remember that about it too.

Oooh, Alton Brown! Love him! Have fun. =O)

Have you ever chatted on Twitter with a hashtag (a word with the # symbol in front)? Basically, you just type in #TuesBookTalk into the search box on Twitter and it will bring up all the tweets for our chat. Then, when you respond or post a tweet, be sure to include #TuesBookTalk on every tweet so we see yours. The time is 8:30pm Central Time/9:30pm Eastern Time. Not sure what time zone you're in.

I hope I explained it well. Let me know if you have any other questions.

I will be putting up separate discussion tabs for each week for people to discuss in the group too.

37584 I wanted to put this note in here just for your information. For the sake of fairness and all.

For any poll we have in the group, I always vote randomly. I assign each answer in the poll a number based on alphabetical order and I use random.org to select my choice randomly. In a case where there are a few books, or genres, with a much higher number of votes then the others, I will randomly select between those. I also sometimes use my vote as a tie breaker and I also do this randomly.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Welcome, Andi! We're glad to have you with us on Possession. We read a new book each month (sometimes longer if it's a terribly long book). We choose by first voting on genre and then I compile a list of books from my extensive home library (I have 3000+ books) and we vote on which book we would like to read. Sometimes we have themed reading, like during Halloween...always a scary read...and Christmas.

Again, thanks for joining us. I have participated (a bit silently) in a few of your read-a-longs at Estella's Revenge. Also, congrats on your upcoming wedding!

It probably will. I've reread books I read 20 years ago and it has been almost a new experience, or an enhanced experience for books I really love. You're making me very excited to read this one...yay!

I'm still working on Winter Solstice, if you can believe it. Christmas is always so busy. My reading really suffers. =O(

I hope you will! I voted for Bel Canto, but Possession won out in the end. I don't really mind though because every book I put on the polls are books I own and have been wanting to read. HaHa!

Best wishes in the New Year!
