Preferably one where people are happy with chick-lit and the mindless enjoyment that it gives me. grin

Suits me, yes grin

LovelyRitaMeterMaid Tue 23-Jun-09 18:57:31

Ooh yes I love chick lit smile

seeker Tue 23-Jun-09 18:57:53

Me - but can some of them not be chick - lit but still low brow?

TabithaTwitchet Tue 23-Jun-09 19:16:47

I'd like to join - how does it work exactly - do we all agree on the books beforehand?

Yes, not all chick-lit is fine with me. Hang on, I saw some guidelines earlier, will find them.

Here we go, courtesy of FlameSparrow:
1. Get 12 members (one for each month of the year).

2. Decide if you have any banned genres (chick lit/mis lit etc)

3. Decide a date each month you post books.

4. Make the members into a list to show who posts to who (post the the person after you on the list).

5. Exchange addresses (either just the people posting tell their poster, or a sort of mass address giving via email that gets forwarded to everyone/the right person via a co-ordinator).

6. Post book (pref with MN name written in it!)

7. Read, enjoy and comment on that books thread

I haven't read any Anna Karenina, nor have I heard of her, but I shall steer clear for you. smile

So that's five of us. I can't see any reason why we couldn't do it between us. What do you all think?

Zorayda Tue 23-Jun-09 20:14:13

Ooh, I think six would be a far superior number, if you'll have me! smile

TheChilliMoose Tue 23-Jun-09 20:19:27

Of course smile

Now, when would people like to send their books?

And would people be happy to email me their addresses and I email them out to the person who needs them? (if that made any sense at all)

can i join or is it to late?

TheChilliMoose Tue 23-Jun-09 20:32:27

It's never too late tjackonpfc smile

I've never done one before, shineon, so I reckon we send a book of our choice (that we have enjoyed) to a designated person.

How does sending your book by this Friday sound, or does anyone want a bit more time?

My email address is thechillimoose@hotmail.co.uk

Please email me your address with your MN name. I will email you a person to send your book to before Friday.

And I guess we can have more people join up to Friday, so if anyone sees the thread and fancies giving it a go, do join us smile

TheChilliMoose Tue 23-Jun-09 20:33:35

Oh, and write your MN name inside the book that you have read and are sending. When you get a book to read, add your name to the list. This way we can make sure someone doesn't get the same book twice.

TabithaTwitchet Tue 23-Jun-09 20:55:29

Have e-mailed you

seeker Tue 23-Jun-09 20:56:16

Oh and make sure you don't say on here what book you're sending so it'll be a surprise!

LovelyRitaMeterMaid Tue 23-Jun-09 21:00:27

I have emailed you smile

Zorayda, did you send one?
I'm getting quite excited now smile

Hi there

Just tried sending it again. If that fails, would you mind emailing me, and I'll respond? 'Tis mnzorayda @ hotmail co uk without the spaces and with the dots, iyswim.
