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

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.

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.

Mine has arrived already!! That was fast.

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

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

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.

kreecherlivesupstairs Thu 09-Jun-11 12:26:41

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.
