Being a musician, I am aware of copywrite laws, etc., so would not want to constantly copy from the book.
You can go over to yahoo mail and open another free account just for the group with a memorable user name, or a similar one using numbers at the end like boo2008@....
It takes about 3 minutes.
The threads will go to your yahoo email either as they are posted, or in a daily digest summary. And...if you download the free yahoo messenger, you can get email alerts whenever a message comes into your box.
(Can ya tell I'm a yahoo junkie?!)
Hope to see you there,boo1.
