I have received my book.

Posted to mailfuckoff yesterday (yes a Sunday), so I am not sure when it will get to you. Are we having threads to chat about the books?

Mailfuckoff Mon 07-May-18 16:40:52

I was thinking about it but no one really uses them last time. What do people want to do?

We need to have somewhere to discuss the books otherwise it is not really a book group, more a book loan/swap?

Mailfuckoff Mon 07-May-18 18:01:12

I'm with you, I'm happy to set them up if they get used?

Hi, missed to send mine on Saturday and don’t have this lovely Sunday/bank hol Monday post service (v jealous) but book and chocolate ready to send first thing tomorrow

TheGirlWhoLived Mon 07-May-18 20:43:19

I’m happy to discuss all of them on here (no spoilers) or individual ones, as there’s only 5 of us I’m happy going with the majority! I love seeing what other people thought of my book thoughgrin

TheGirlWhoLived Thu 10-May-18 16:29:55

got my book and happily tucking into the choc! (Guinness chocolate - delicious!!) The galaxy was stolen by DH and the DD's, but it kept them quiet so all good things grin

Hope mine arrived ok - it was sent a couple of days ago but it didn't have far to travel smile

TheGirlWhoLived Thu 10-May-18 16:30:29

Oh I didn't write my name in mine.... :s it had some Galaxy Chocolate and Wholenut in - so that's mine if you get it

Mailfuckoff Thu 10-May-18 18:27:18

Thanks thegirlwholived. That was me. Chocolate and book much appreciated.

myusernameisnotmyusername Sat 12-May-18 22:49:13

I posted mine today. Sorry it's late.

TheGirlWhoLived Wed 16-May-18 12:27:07

how has everyone got on with their books so far? smile

clairethewitch70 Wed 16-May-18 16:17:35

Enjoying my book, but it is a biggy, so it may take a long time to read.

myusernameisnotmyusername Wed 16-May-18 21:39:51

Not started yet. Just finishing the one I was on. I'm really looking forward to it though.

Mailfuckoff Wed 16-May-18 21:43:37

Hi, also not started yet, but it's look like NG at me so will start soon. Can we aim to finish all books by the end of the month??

Mine just arrived today. Just finished a book last night, so it's perfect timing. Thanks to whoever it's from. smile

Sorry Claire, that big one is from me...I didn't think about the practicalities of a thick book, did I?!

myusernameisnotmyusername Fri 18-May-18 13:33:35

That could've been mine orchid. I'm not sure of the username just the person's name. Did it have orange chocolate inside?

myusernameisnotmyusername Fri 18-May-18 13:33:58

I'm starting today.

BigPinkOrchid Fri 18-May-18 19:23:05

Yes it did myusername. Thanks, that and the Galaxy will be enjoyed at some point, but I'm currently doing Slimming World, so it's been put in a high cupboard for now...let's see how long it lasts... grin

myusernameisnotmyusername Fri 18-May-18 21:26:54

Oh sorry! I'm also doing slimming world so have had to show restraint with my chocolate.

TheGirlWhoLived Fri 18-May-18 21:38:14

Haha I'm on Slimfast grin

clairethewitch70 Mon 21-May-18 23:07:44

How is everyone enjoying their books? Loving mine, and even though it is a big book, I am getting through it quickly as I don't want to put it down. Are we going to discuss the books?

myusernameisnotmyusername Tue 22-May-18 23:47:03

I'm really enjoying mine too.

myusernameisnotmyusername Wed 30-May-18 10:01:06

I've finished my book.
