Hello There. Welcome to the board.  I'm new here myself.
It seems I'm the only one from the States posting at the moment as well.

Let us know how you like the Rowling book. I have it in my Library queue, but that will be a long wait. I refuse to buy it, since I've not heard great things about it (I'm cheap).

Hooray I'm so glad you found us again. I still think fondly of the old BBC Board 'it seems just yesterday but also so distant'
We don't seem to have a wistfully nostalgic emoticon. Smile

Hi Liz, good to meet you, and county_lady, lovely to see you again. I haven't investigated the emoticons yet.

Welcome back! I used to be 'Meredith' back in the old days, but when we moved to this board, I decided to drop some of the disguise! I don't post all that much these days: since I retired and have lots of spare time I have become horribly lazy, but I do still read the posts on here, and, of course, read much more than I was able to before.

I haven't been tempted by the J.K. Rowling book. I am sure she has contributed a huge amount to the world of books simply by getting kids reading the Harry Potter series, but there is nothing about that series or this new book that actually attracts me.

DH (LWG), if (as I hope) this place becomes a regular haunt I would recommend bookmarking this page: http://bigreaders.myfastforum.org/search.php?search_id=newposts. I imagine for those of us not here from the start of this incarnation of the board it might be a bit confusing working out what goes where. I tend to treat the 'new posts' page as the first port of call, then I can see what people have been discussing most recently. Also, bear in mind that when visiting threads you have read before, clicking the yellow icon by the thread's name will take you to the posts added since your last visit. (Hope that makes sense.) It really is lovely to see you again. I'm not a great one for emoticons, but on this occasion I feel justified in wheeling out one of these:

Thanks Gareth, I love the emoticon and feel vey touched to have been received so warmly. Strangely, I had completely forgotten about the 'LWG' element of my 'name'!

I will try and bookmark the new posts page as you suggest, although I have an Apple now and am regretting it a bit because I can't seem to get to grips with it, but that's another story. I haven't yet worked out whether it is possible to respond to individual posts on a thread, or whether it all runs consecutively. Advice welcomed. Thanks  Very Happy

It all runs consecutively, none of the nice little branches that the first Big Read board had, but if you click the 'quote' button in the top right-hand corner of a post, you can make it clear which post (or which part of a post) you are replying to - as I am doing now.

Hello DH!  So lovely to see you again - I assumed you were now better groomed, hence dropping the LWG!  Great that you have joined the board.
