Right so I only have four addresses so far. These are from;

Please let me know if you have sent me an address and your name is not here as it means it has gotten lost somewhere.

Ok so can everyone else that wants to join in please send me your addresses ASAP as I was hoping to organise it tomorrow evening and then Tuesday/Wednesday we do deliveries.

Things I need as well as address
- Initials of book title and author
- Any allergy or chocolate/treats preference

As I have mentioned in the last thread I will be setting up a monthly sign in thread that everyone needs to post in before the books get sent on. Don't worry, I will remind you if you forget.

I think the general consensus was that we would be having as little censorship as possible so you can send pretty much anything you want apart from abuse memoirs which can be very triggering/upsetting for some people.

A reminder of how it will work:
- I collect all addresses and other info
- I give everyone one person/address to send your own book to.
- About 3 and 1/2 weeks later I will open up the sign in thread for you to respond to.
- Couple of days later if all goes well and we haven't lost anyone we will send the book we received onto your allocated person/address.
- If we lose people along the way then I will give you direction on where to send books to.
- When sending books on we will also send a small amount of chocolate or other requested treat up to a value of £2.50
- We can then set up threads for each book and discuss them.

Okay, sorry for the long post. I just wanted to collate all of the ideas into one. So let's get the addresses in and we can start the fun!

Mine probably won't get sent until the end of the week either, sorry WhyIsA Raven , my DS has a sickness bug so we're stuck at home for a day or two.

clairethewitch70 Tue 21-Nov-17 20:10:01

Just sorted mine out for mailfuckoff. DH posting it tomorrow.

BigPinkOrchid Wed 22-Nov-17 18:31:56

I managed to escape for a bit whilst my mum had poorly DS, so got mine sent off to WhyIsARaven today. smile

JorlyWood Wed 22-Nov-17 18:42:26

whyIsARavenLikeAWritingDesk Fri 24-Nov-17 08:55:11

username your book is on its way 👍🏻

BigPinkOrchid Fri 24-Nov-17 19:30:21

Raven He is thanks, yes. My turn now... smile

clairethewitch70 Fri 24-Nov-17 20:31:49

Received my book from JorlyWood Looks interesting, not something I would normally pick up but it looks good - have you read it? What do we do about discussing books - do we start a thread on each book?

JorlyWood Fri 24-Nov-17 20:45:27

Yeah it is a great book. I will start a new thread for everyone's books and then we can discuss them separately. I guess try to be as vague as possible when discussing it just in case someone clicks on the wrong one or even (like me) has no self control then regrets things. blush

I will keep a track on paper and let everyone know who's book they are receiving every month.

Hi raven, I got yours. Picked it up from mail place on Saturday. Thanks very much. Oxcat yours was posted Saturday. smile

oxcat1 Sun 26-Nov-17 23:08:27

Thank you! Afraid my copy won't be arriving until tomorrow, so I'll pop it in the post as soon as possible after that. So sorry about the delay.

Is it possible to have an extension over Christmas?!

myusernameisnotmyusername Wed 29-Nov-17 12:51:29

When do we have to send them on again?
