Right so I only have four addresses so far. These are from;
clairethewitch70
mailfuckoff
BigPinkOrchid
WhyIsARavenLikeAWritingDesk

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!

Thanks,
Jorly!

If you look on the first page of this thread, you can see who sent to who. You may be able to trace your books that way.

I had
The three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch
The Muse and
Elizabeth is missing

Never had the Kate Atkinson. Maybe the person who dropped out has them.

BigPinkOrchid Tue 24-Apr-18 13:29:33

Have a feeling yours and my original one are in the same black hole mail. Was yours the Kate Atkinson book? I think the next person on from me didn't post either of them on.

JorlyWood Tue 24-Apr-18 07:14:11

What was your book mail?

mailfuckoff Tue 24-Apr-18 05:58:33

No one has mentioned my book yet so I guess it's dropped into a black hole. I don't mind so much but it's a reminder not to sent books you care about!

JorlyWood Mon 23-Apr-18 12:53:13

Also don't worry about sending it back to me pink. I have another copy.

JorlyWood Mon 23-Apr-18 12:51:36

Hi username I have your book. Pm me your address please.

BigPinkOrchid Mon 23-Apr-18 12:03:14

@oxcat The Keeper of Lost Things is mine. Yes, it was dropped in at a later stage and the reason I sent that book was because I really, really couldn't get into it but thought someone else might like it...so I don't mind if I don't get it back. Feel free to keep it if you enjoyed it, or pass it on to friends/charity shop. I personally don't think it's worth the £2.80 postage to send it back to me. grin

oxcat1 Mon 23-Apr-18 11:20:51

The book 'Elizabeth is Missing' is mine, but I deliberately bought a spare copy so please feel free to keep it.

The book that I have is 'The Keeper of Lost Things' by Ruth Hogan. I think this was one of the new ones dropped into the mix at a later stage...?

myusernameisnotmyusername Sun 22-Apr-18 20:46:07

It was called The Irresistible Inheritance of Wilberforce by Paul Torday.

BigPinkOrchid Sun 22-Apr-18 20:20:08

@JorlyWood can you pm me your address and I'll post The Three Stigmata back to you.

clairethewitch70 Sat 21-Apr-18 22:51:50

myusernameisnotmyusername I will PM you with my address.

What was your book called?

myusernameisnotmyusername Sat 21-Apr-18 07:42:19

Hi @clairethewitch70. Please can you give me your address and I'll post your book. Don't know what happened to my book.

clairethewitch70 Fri 20-Apr-18 13:22:06

New thread here

Hi, I've set up a new thread called spring 2018, so I don't know how to link to it.

clairethewitch70 Thu 19-Apr-18 23:23:30

@myusernameisnotmyusername

Set in stone was my book

I would love to join another group if there is one set up.

@BigPinkOrchid

The Three Stigmata book is JorlyWoods

myusernameisnotmyusername Thu 19-Apr-18 22:09:21

Hi. Hope you're ok Jorly. I've got Set In Stone by Catherine Dunne if anyone would like me to return it to them. I really enjoyed it by the way and wasn't sure I would!

BigPinkOrchid Thu 19-Apr-18 17:55:04

I've got The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch if anyone wants that sending back to them?

mailfuckoff, I'll definitely join if you set another one up. Will you post a link on here if you start a new thread, please?

Hope you're ok Jorly.

clairethewitch70 Thu 19-Apr-18 11:23:56

Hi all. I have got Elizabeth is missing - whose is this?

mailfuckoff Thu 19-Apr-18 10:19:33

Thanks @jorlywood
Ive got the muse, anyone want to claim it?

JorlyWood Thu 19-Apr-18 07:15:19

Thanks for understanding. Yeah that sounds like a good idea mail. I have lost the book somewhere in my cluttered house. It hasn't left the house so when I find it which will only be a matter of time I will shred everyone's names and addresses.

mailfuckoff Thu 19-Apr-18 06:28:54

If people want we can stop this one. I will set up a new thread and start a fresh one. If everyone says the book they have the owner can pm an address to send it to so it gets home. Are people happy with this?

myusernameisnotmyusername Wed 18-Apr-18 22:22:22

How many more do we have to go? I did enjoy the last book but can understand if you want to stop.

JorlyWood Wed 18-Apr-18 20:10:38

I've lost my notebook with all the addresses and order and who has read what in. Shall we call it a day and just try returning books to their owners. I haven't had the time to even read my book this turn.

JorlyWood Tue 17-Apr-18 19:09:20

Hi yeah let's send on. It has been a while. I will double check who everyone is to send onto after the middle up last month and send you all a message this evening.
