Hope everyone's found their book thread-- and that I've not left anyone out!

A quick reminder: you're always posting to the same person so:

Mailings are the first Monday of the month, so next posting date is 4th February.

How does everyone feel about posting early if you've finished the book? I'm up for it but I don't want to put pressure on anyone who's taking longer to read theirs.

Thanks for setting it all up!!

If we send out early I might get confused but if the majority agree that's fine.

DontDreamItBeIt Fri 18-Jan-08 17:24:58

Thanks mybabysinthegarden.

I wans't involved in getting the new topic set up, so can't take credit for that though.

In theory I'm ok with posting early but think it may be better o wait and keep everythig neat. I've finished my book and will post on the approprate thread for it.

MegBusset Fri 18-Jan-08 17:54:48

I am coming up to halfway through (it is a long book!).

yogabird Fri 18-Jan-08 20:30:44

i can do early, but am happy that megbusset needs longer so that i can read the new one by the Kite Runner bloke - going to start that this evening smile

EachPeachPearMum Fri 18-Jan-08 22:28:27

Um, I can send early if necessary. And AndyRobo, don't worry about sending early if you don't want- have about 8 books on my 'to read' pile!

EachPeachPearMum Fri 18-Jan-08 22:32:50

OMG, just checked the topic list....mybabys... did you set this up?


mybabysinthegarden Sat 19-Jan-08 22:08:47

No problem Eachpeach! (You logged on in the evening, I see.) Discoverlife, I think it's ok to be specific about the books' identities/plots/endings in the individual threads, as long as everyone knows if they peek at a thread before they've read the book they may RUIN it for themselves. grin Seems like the consensus is to hold off on posting books out to keep things simple.

Right, I'm off to gab about dontdreamit's book.

mybabysinthegarden Sat 19-Jan-08 23:55:50

Oh, and thanks Meg for requesting the new topic!

EachPeachPearMum - I was planning on posting at the weekend 2nd class - I finished the book today - spent 2.5 hours queuing or tickets for my DD dance show!!! (she is nearly 6 bless but it is a big dance school and lots of competitive mums who have to get the front row tickets!!)

Blanki - when I got the book, I wasnt sure if I would like it, but now I've finished it, I would like to try others by the same author (she has same first name as me, which I found amusing!). I am keeping a list of new authors that I like so I can look out for them or request them from the library.

mairseydotes Sun 20-Jan-08 22:51:27

go ahead and post to me mybabys!

EachPeachPearMum Mon 21-Jan-08 13:21:09

andyrobo- thats great! will look forward to it smile

DontDreamItBeIt Mon 21-Jan-08 15:41:46
