Hi there, Could you also add your postal address in the email to Short Books. Our apologies - we should have spelled this out in the opening post. If you've emailed Short Books already without your address, don't re-email - they will be in touch with you shortly. There's still a good number of copies left, so do email if you haven't already - with your postal address. Good luck !

prolificwillybreeder Wed 08-Jun-11 14:05:13

Emailed, hope I get a copy!smile

Some of us were smart enough to do that anyway Rachel wink

<legs it>

Didn't your OP read: If you'd like to try and grab one of the free copies, email with the subject line - ''Crimson China - Mumsnet'' and put your postal address in the body of the email? confused

moonbells Wed 08-Jun-11 14:47:01

blush that's the second time this week I've replied to something and forgotten to actually write something in the body of the email... the other one was a book review, too.

I'm going to blame the migraine I had last night... now to find out where my brain has escaped to. Anyone seen one scuttling off?

Blatherskite Wed 08-Jun-11 14:51:05

I think the Ops been edited whomoved, it definitely didn't say that earlier - Icae back to check especially!

Luckily, I included my address anyway smile

Blatherskite Wed 08-Jun-11 14:52:01

Icae? Batteries are going in the keyboard I think! I came

bluebump Wed 08-Jun-11 16:38:11

munstersmum Wed 08-Jun-11 17:15:09

Popped in a request.

Weird I put my address in because I thought the OP did say it and since I was the first response I assume I saw it when it was first posted? confused

<smacks forehead>

AurraSing Wed 08-Jun-11 19:09:37

Sounds worth a read. I've sent a hopeful email.

We've just been informed that all the copies of Crimson China have now gone! Tilly will be starting the thread the day after the Kate Atkinson webchat - Thursday 23rd June, so please save your thoughts on the book for that thread.

LatherRinseRepeatAsNeeded Thu 09-Jun-11 10:19:46

Have emailed - I recently spotted this and put it on my birthday book list, it would be nice to not have to wait until September to get a copy smile

Understandably they couldn't send one to Belgium, so my copy is going to my parents house and they will forward it to me.
Thanks in advance.

Blatherskite Thu 09-Jun-11 11:20:06

Mine has arrived already!! That was fast.

TheFeministsWife Thu 09-Jun-11 11:56:26

Mine has just come, very fast!

LadyInPink Thu 09-Jun-11 12:03:06

Mine too arrived just now - amazing service, thanks loads smile

vnmum Thu 09-Jun-11 12:07:34

I emailed yesterday and i got my copy this morning, how fast was that?! This is my first time at being in a book club (have been lurking on the book club threads up until now). I had better get reading it now and leave my newly acquired but yet unstarted library books (got on basis of a thread on here) till later.

LinzerTorte Thu 09-Jun-11 12:23:17

Did they e-mail to let you know, kreecher? I gave both my address and my parents' address in the UK in case they couldn't send to Austria, but haven't heard anything back.

Yes, Linzer. I initially sent an email asking if they would send to Belgium, when the woman replied she said no so I asked if they'd send it to Norfolk.
This morning I sent her my parent's address so presumably I'll get one.
If you are unlucky you can have mine once I've read it.

utterlyslutterly Thu 09-Jun-11 12:36:47

Just received mine - many thanks!!!!!!

LinzerTorte Thu 09-Jun-11 12:49:03

kreecher - Ah, they probably didn't need to contact me as I gave both addresses in my e-mail.

I’m hoping I'll get the book as I e-mailed yesterday morning, but thanks for your offer. smile

vnmum Thu 09-Jun-11 16:49:44

because I am new to this book club malarkey, can some one clarify wether the thread that is going to be started after the Kate Atkinson web chat is to start discussing the book after it's been read and that i need to read it by the 23 june?

gailforce1 Thu 09-Jun-11 21:04:49

Amazing service - received my copy today! Thanks.

I didnt get one sad

vnmum Thu 09-Jun-11 21:30:51

Thanks stewie It was just that the message from justine said the thread for this book would be started the day after the kate atkinson chat which is on the 23rd June so i wasn't sure if i needed it read by then or by the time the author comes on for a web chat

I didn't get one either and I was first waaaah <wails and gnashes teeth> sad

I'm happy to pass my copy on once I've read it to someone who didn't get one...

snice Fri 10-Jun-11 10:17:39

I thought I'd got in early for once and I didn't get one either

moonbells Fri 10-Jun-11 10:56:15

When I've read mine, am happy to post on to someone else... (I usually read quite quickly)

RunforFun Fri 10-Jun-11 11:11:39

I got one thanks ! I'm happy to pass mine on too when I've finished it.

vnmum Fri 10-Jun-11 13:19:47

I'm happy to pass mine on too once read.

missorinoco Fri 10-Jun-11 20:49:23

I didn't get one either and I was second I think. How did that work?!

munstersmum Sat 11-Jun-11 14:01:18

Didn't get one sad
But still happy cos got one of the Tiger Mum ones last time & enjoyed that webchat [happy]

LinzerTorte Sat 11-Jun-11 19:45:14

I didn't get one either, and thought I'd e-mailed early enough. sad

chinam Mon 13-Jun-11 14:39:17

Mine just got delivered-I feel bad for whining earlier on the thread now but patience has never been my strong suit

munstersmum Wed 15-Jun-11 14:08:44

A copy for me arrived today!
Truly snail mail to the sticks gringrin

pinkthechaffinch Wed 15-Jun-11 14:21:07

I got mine today too! Thanks MN and publishers smile

JenaiMarrHePlaysGuitar Wed 15-Jun-11 15:31:22

Ooooh, I wonder if they allocated copies first come, first served?

Because I think I emailed before munstersmum did in which case maybe there's a package waiting for me at home. I do hope so! smile

sailorsgal Wed 15-Jun-11 16:40:16

I got one too! fantastic. Between mumsnetting, shredding and reading book of the month its a wonder I have time for anything else! grin

missorinoco Wed 15-Jun-11 20:14:01

Wail. Consoling myself that as a friend thanked me for the Xmas card they received mid Jan even though it was postmarked 9 December it is likelymy copy is en route still.

JenaiMarrHePlaysGuitar Wed 15-Jun-11 20:44:10

Yay, yay, yay I have one too - it was waiting for me when I got home half an hour ago.

Thank you Short Books (and MN) smile

Have read it now - got to bleary-eyed ahem o'clock as I couldn't put it down as I neared the end. And I certainly have plenty of questions! Looking forward to the discussion.
