If anyone has previously asked me for copies of CS books by email then you should have received an email from me with this list, attachments of any I've not previously sent out - though it is possible that 2-3 titles may not have been sent to everyone.

If you are missing any of the above, and I have your email address, please look out for an email from me. If you haven't had one or want any of the above eBooks, please send me a PM including your email address and which titles you want - you can just list the book numbers.

This is one of the best threads I have ever opened on mumsnet! I have sent a pm.

I was going to come on and say the codliver oil fried doughnuts was in a later CS book - but I see I have been beaten to it. I must have been too busy doing my prep and mending to see this thread earlier!

UserNameUnderConstruc Wed 08-Oct-14 12:32:45

Wow! What an impressive list!. Its bought back fond memories of readin the books growing up. Have sent you a pm.

Katharine2 Wed 08-Oct-14 12:20:03

That's impressive LibraryPree, sent you a PM.

Trickydecision Wed 30-Jul-14 08:10:46

There should be a Mumsnet, or even a CS, medal for devotion beyond the call of duty. You are amazing! Thank you again.

TheCSLibraryPree Wed 30-Jul-14 02:52:55

Hello Tricky,

I literally sit here and type up each book. I do a live in job (it's meant to be alternate weeks but, since end of April, I've only had 2 weeks out) and spend much of my days sitting doing nothing so it keeps me occupied and sane!!

I quite like the routine of sitting and typing page after page and it means I get to read them!!

Trickydecision Mon 28-Jul-14 15:56:10

I am so very grateful for the book which you sent me a split second after receiving my message. But how on earth do you do the transcribing? Surely it is an extremely laborious process?

RobinHumphries Mon 28-Jul-14 11:23:59

Slang rumble? Pay your fine please! Matey will be along in a minute to wash your mouth out with soap

rumbleinthrjungle Mon 28-Jul-14 11:18:01

Oooh! oooh! Jo to the Rescue! I may have to have a lie down for a few days, anyone got any spiked milk?

Library Pree, if it wasn't ghastly tosh we just don't do around here I might have a pash on you. Wonderful work, thank you!

TooSpotty Mon 28-Jul-14 09:46:24

I googled. Right on doughnuts, wrong on era. It's in Carola.

TheCSLibraryPree Mon 28-Jul-14 01:57:57

Ahh, now I do remember something about frying donuts!! Can't remember it being during Tirol days, and I've read them fairly recently. Let me do some digging!

EElisavetaofBelsornia Mon 28-Jul-14 00:14:19

Ooh I will!! Very excited.

TooSpotty Sun 27-Jul-14 23:25:53

I'm pretty sure one of the books has a cod liver oil/olive oil mix up. Someone is sent to get olive oil from matron for frying doughnuts and gets the wrong oil. Tyrol era as I'm sure the American girls are involved somehow:

PolkadotsAndMoonbeams Sun 27-Jul-14 22:22:05

I've just asked my DSis and that was in one if the magazines apparently, so maybe not in a proper book. They made them and they looked so good they chose them to be served to the people visiting the school. Why they put them in in the first place, or what the outcome was I can't actually remember confused

TheCSLibraryPree Sun 27-Jul-14 21:30:04

Don't remember that but there was the time Evvy & Co (I think) put garlic cloves in the apple pies instead of dried cloves. Was in one of the earlier Tirol books.

PolkadotsAndMoonbeams Sun 27-Jul-14 21:03:43

Which is the one where somebody puts cod liver oil tablets in the shepherds pie? I used to get the monthly magazines, I'm not sure where they are now. I'll have to ask my DSis if she knows.

TheCSLibraryPree Sun 27-Jul-14 19:58:28

Hello Micah,

Indeed you are correct, there is Genius. In the Armada books it was split to become Genius and Fete. I have them both and, in due course, will transcribe them!!

micah Sun 27-Jul-14 18:48:40

I'm sure there was one called Genius at the CS.

Don't think I made it up?

TheCSLibraryPree Sun 27-Jul-14 18:37:14

Thanks AuditAngel!!

By the way girls, we ave a big debt of thanks to pass on to my DP - while clearing up at my place this week he's managed to find my previously 'lost or of unknown whereabouts' book - Jo to the Rescue!!

I'm going to transcribe it along with Rebel over the next couple of weeks!!

TheAmazingZebraOnWheels Sat 26-Jul-14 23:43:15

Emerence?

AuditAngel Sat 26-Jul-14 23:37:12

I know the Real identity of CSlibraryPree.

She is definitely not a Bettany; if she was a Maynard it would probably be Margot, but that isn't right either.

She isn't a Lucy...........

TheCSLibraryPree Sat 26-Jul-14 23:31:32

EElisavetaofBelsornia,

If you'd like to pm me with an email address I have Joey goes to the Oberland and The Chalet School in the Oberland and can send them to you in no time at all!!

fairnotfair Sat 26-Jul-14 22:48:42

I think we should ALL nominate the CSlibrarypree for the Margot Venables Prize. She makes Mary-Lou look like Miss Bubb.

EElisavetaofBelsornia Sat 26-Jul-14 22:19:27

You are a smashing Pree and I will definitely not engage in any impish Middling behaviour in your prep this term. Selfishly I am hoping for Oberland to come soon as I never read it as a child and keep hearing about it on the other thread.

Tanaqui Sat 26-Jul-14 20:33:23

Got it- I had to swap off the mobile site- knew I had done it before.
