Is anyone interested in joining me in a new book circle?

Brief explanation for those who have not done it before, copied from one of the first circles via flame:

1. Get 12 members (one for each month of the year).

2. Decide if you have any banned genres (chick lit/mis lit etc)

3. Decide a date each month you post books.

4. Make the members into a list to show who posts to who (post the the person after you on the list).

5. Exchange addresses (PMs to the person above you in the list to give them your address, and the person below you to get the address to post to)

6. Post book (pref with MN name written in it!)

7. Read, enjoy and comment on that book's thread

I'm interested but a bit confused, do you send out a book a month or just one over the year?confused

(in my defence against being confused I'm 6 months pregnant, with a boisterous toddler & in the middle of a house move so haven't had a good night's sleep in weeks!)

I'm coming back please Jas. I have my book lined up already smile

Housewifefromheaven Wed 20-Jun-12 18:46:13

Yes yes me me!!

Pascha Wed 20-Jun-12 18:46:54

MrsHelsBels you read one book, comment on it and post it on to the next MNer at the beginning of the month. Someone posts one to you. 12 people =12 months so over the year you read 12 books.

I did one of these yrs ago, would love to join smile

Bump!

SO want to do this but I'm a flake.

I'm still deciding, would love to do it but with a baby due in 3 months I'm not sure how much reading I'll be doing.

Lightshines Thu 21-Jun-12 23:04:29

Me, me - I have been in since the start and would like to do another round grin

I wouldn't mind joining but have a specific request of no abuse stuff?

Jas Fri 22-Jun-12 07:32:12

That would come under mis lit....something we have always avoided in the past and I vertainly would be happy to avoid again, so not a problem, Olympic...

Shirley, and MrsHelsBels - only you two can decide - I tend to be a bit flaky, but manage to post and read one book a month. New babies have been a reason in the past for people dropping out though...

And gald to see you found us lightshines. smile

OlympicMarathonNCer Fri 22-Jun-12 08:35:34

Yeah, me too then.

itsatiggerday Fri 22-Jun-12 10:24:17

Oh yeah, I'm another vote for definitely no mis lit.
