What is it please

Justme1981 Tue 02-Apr-19 20:04:50

Im up for it - hopefully better success than the last one! X

@catisbeingsick - we each send a book and chocolate onto someone else and receive one in return. We review it and then send on to the next person on the list. By the end all books should have circulated and your own returns back to you. You send to the same person each time.

If everyone who is interested could please PM me by 15th April. I will need your address, the initials of the book you are sending, and any chocolate/sweet preferences. Re: the initials of the book, Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire would be HP&TGOF by JKR

We could aim for a posting date near the end of the month so the book arrives at the beginning. I will start a thread for each book, for us to discuss and put reviews in.

Your address will only be passed onto the person sending on to you, which if all goes well will be the same person each time and eventually you should get your book back.

Does it have to be a new book though? Or any genre etc? Expected chocolates like a bar of dairy milk or a box of hotel chocolat?

clairethewitch70 Fri 12-Apr-19 18:10:46

@Imadehimlikethat - any book, new or old, one that you enjoy and think we will. Chocolate not that expensive, usually £1.50 - £2.00. A bar or two small of chocolate anything from galaxy, lindt, aldi etc.
