Looking forward to some good books. Should be interesting...

Dysgu Sun 30-Sep-12 18:56:58

There seem to be two new threads started so I thought I would just add myself to this one...

There were some interesting choices on the last round so looking forward to seeing what comes round this time.

How did I manage that? I'll ask MN to delete the other one so it doesn't get confusing. (It doesn't take much to confuse me these days!)

Marking place...

Are we voting on the last round this time?

Hi All - good to be back! I'm really looking forward to some new books. Will probably post to AP on Tuesday (have the book, need to source chocolate!) smile

aristocat Mon 01-Oct-12 19:47:50

Lola you should get it in the next few days, I posted today. Lovely to have you back in the circle smile

LolaLadybird Wed 03-Oct-12 21:42:53

Arti - book and choc arrived today and am looking forward to getting stuck into both. Was lovely to come home to a book/choc package again after a few months away smile.

AP - sent yours first class today so hopefully with you tomorrow.

Great - look forward to it. SLF, I sent yours yesterday. This is exciting!

Hi all

Arti - received your book and choc was delicious!!

Looking forward to getting stuck in ...

artifarti Thu 04-Oct-12 16:23:47

slf - thanks for the book and choc. Your choice of book is really interesting when you see what I have chosen (which you won't of course for months! smile)

stickylittlefingers Thu 04-Oct-12 18:36:27

I will try to hold that thought arti!

I've a nasty feeling that my book arrived today, but I missed it - had one of those cards sad I was only out the back hanging the clothes too, not like I was having fun or anything. Oh well, hopefully Saturday. Am running a marathon on Sunday so I'll deserve the chocolate grin

aristocat Sun 07-Oct-12 22:43:57

Dysgu thanks for the book and chocolate smile will start reading as soon as I have finished what I am reading now.

Has everyone else got their books now?

Dysgu Sat 20-Oct-12 11:46:53

I have no book! I know I am not really in a position to complain as I am so often late in posting - but I am lounging here on the sofa and suddenly fancied some chocolate, which made me realise no book (or chocolate) had arrived.

Anyone heard anything of JohnWorf?

Dysgu, sorry - I've just seen this. Have you got a book yet? Let me know, and I'll email Johnworf, but I'm sure she sent me an email ages ago to say she'd posted. I hope I've given her the right details to post to...

aristocat Mon 22-Oct-12 21:12:24

I know JohnWorf will ask her now.

aristocat Mon 22-Oct-12 21:25:09

Dysgu I have messaged JohnWorf and it was posted over a week ago. Looks like Royal Mail are on a go-slow.

Dysgu Tue 23-Oct-12 21:05:50

Thanks aristo - it can take a bit of time to cross the water and the ferries have been cancelled because of the fog a few times so I will just wait... (and continue to send DP to the shop for chocolate!)

johnworf Fri 26-Oct-12 23:24:11

Hi there ladies. I posted Dysgu's book aggges ago! I hope it doesn't bounce back to me. Sorry it's not with you yet. Bloody RM! hmm

johnworf Mon 29-Oct-12 09:15:56

I'm just about to post of this month's offering to you Dysgu. For some reason, two books turned up together (I had a note saying one is early) so you've got 3 altogether ...hoping they all turn up!
x

I'm posting to you johnworf ....aren't I???

Oh dear, and it was all going so smoothly... I'll have a look at the posting details tomorrow when I can get into the PC. Did everyone get a book last month?

OK, here goes... At the beginning of October:

Lolaladybird sent her book to me.
My book went StickyLittleFingers
StickyLittleFingers' book went to ArtiFarti
ArtiFarti's book went to ItsJustaFleshWound
ItsJustaFleshwound's book went to JohnWorf
JohnWorf's book went to Dysgu
Dysgu's book went to Artistocat
Artistocat's book went to LolaLadybird

At the start of November:
I should have Aristocat's book
SLF should have LolaLadybirds's book (I sent it off today)
Arti should have my book
ItsJustaFleshwound should have SLF's book
JohnWorf should have Arti's book
Dysgu should have ItsJustaFleshwound's book
Aristocat should have JohnWorf's book
LolaLadybird should have Dysgu's book

Do we all have the right books, or is someone going in a different direction? grin

Dysgu Tue 30-Oct-12 22:30:37

I am away from home right now so I don't know if any books - or little cards - have arrived in the past couple of days. However, nothing had arrived before we left on Sunday so I am not sure what is happening.

I will be home late on Saturday and if JohnWorf's book has arrived I can send it straight on to Aristocat (although will take out chocolate and replace...)
