Hi Jennifer.

Welcome to the group. It's a great one. I've been subscribed for a little over a year now and I am constantly amazed by the level of erudition, courtesy, genorosity and humor demonstrated by the denizens here. I've learned a lot, and hope your experience is similar.

Your initial contribution is laudible as well, seeing as we have a plethora of Chandler fans here. I wish I'd read it earlier, as I would have enjoyed participating in the chat you referenced. Will you keep us apprised as to which pertinent mysteries the Washington Post book club discusses in the future? For my part, I'll try not to get behind in my reading of the list!

Welcome again and all the best,
