    I haven't been able to find a spot to put in the code as directed
"Go to and enter the bonus code found inside your book. This will automatically place you into a private SparkTeam for book readers".

Why? I am able to start the program, but unable to get into theSparkTeam. Why?

    I Love the book. I know that I will read it more than one time. It is full of so much good information that I want to know the book well enough to know where I need to go to find information that I know is in the book. When I was in college I was told that I needed to read information no less than three times to really understand it. That is my goal. To read the book at least three times. I am so impressed with the help I get from the site. I am sure the emails are answering my blogs!!!

Welcome the challenge, this is the year my focus is on making a permanent life style change and I am putting as much effort in it as I did when I went to school for my masters degree
