I would like to join also. I ordered my book on same day it could be pre-ordered. I, however, may not be able to check in as scheduled. Will participate as I can. By choice, I've stayed away the other thread once it went beyond civil. Thank you!

That's OK. Join when you can!

I'm following this thread. I am going to buy the book at a bookstore on either April 4th or April 5th.

As far as how to do the book club, I would say initially, chapter by chapter is good. Once people have finished the book, it might be worthwhile to talk about particular topics that arise in the book.

This sounds great. I am looking forward to reading this. Great idea and keeping it civil and allowing comments from people who have read it is a great idea.

Thank you for starting it. I'll join as soon as I can.

My book PRINCE and The Purple Rain Era Studio Sessions 1983-1984 was released in November 2017. (https://www.amazon.com/Prince-Purple-Rain-Studio-Sessions/dp/1538105497/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8) or go to https://www.facebook.com/...s/10915961

I try to buy as much as I can in brick and mortar stores instead of online. I'd like to do as much as I can to avoid hastening the demise of the brick and mortar store, because it's already happening.

Amazon charged my card today and is "preparing book for shipment". Also makes note that it is expected to arrive the 10th or 11th; however, my previous book orders have arrived within a couple of days of shipping. So, I am going to give it until the 7th before I look at other options.

I bet that you do. I think these outlets give themselves ridiculous latitude with arrival dates. That ensures they are covered in the event of any hiccups with the carrier. Jmho

Btw....are you getting a signed copy? Don't know how they are rationing those out. I wish it was for early orders. I ordered mine on Sept 24.

No, I didn't get a signed copy. They were out of stock on those, but I was late in ordering, I only ordered a couple of weeks ago.

Seriously? Normally I download the books to my Kindle, but I had a B&N gift card that I needed to use, so I ordered it from them. I can't believe Kindle is making you wait until the 6th.
