johnworf is a new member so be nice!
As before, please email me at artifarti at hotmail dot co dot uk with the initials of your chosen book and author (e.g. ROTN by TH for Return of the Native by Thomas Hardy) so I can check there are no duplicates. I will assume all your name, address and chocolate details remain the same unless you tell me otherwise (johnworf, please send me yours)
Please do this on or before July 10th. Then I will email you all with the name of the new person you are to post the books to (we are reversing, for anyone that hasn't picked that up.)
No-one has indicated that they want to drop out so I am assuming not at the moment. I have now read all the books so I am thinking about which was my favourite - so many good ones, a difficult choice.
arti was going to ask you if you could contact poshwellies and see if she wanted to come back, but i see you have already done it. i think i have my book choice for the next round and will email you soon. we have glorious sunshine today
aristocat thank you for the book(s) and the chocolate. It was quite a day for parcels today as there was that one and a HUGE parcel for DD1 from Disney as we were 'good' enough to play on their website and post feedback. The bag was huge filled with stuff - but no letter or anything so took us a few minutes to work out why we had Xmas come early! (Had given up on the goodie bag arriving as they promised it weeks ago so was a lovely surprise.)
And, the only reason I was home to take delivery of these parcels is because DD2 was sent home from the childminder's - the doctor has confirmed that it probably is chicken pox! Still, better to get it when she is only 18 months old - DD1 had it aged 6 months so that is fine. I was 26 when I had it and it was AWFUL!
Still not selected my next book - but have been re-reading my book shelves to find one. Several contenders but again, trying to find something everyone will not have already read.
arti do you happen to have Poshwellies' email address handy for sending her book? I think I must still have it buried in my email inbox but not sure - when did we all start this so I know where abouts to hunt?!
so just to make sure I understand (easily confused!) - I shouldn't expect a book for next month, which would have been the last one (AP's), but then we'll get our marching orders for the August restart from Arti...
AP you're welcome, hope you have a lovely holiday!
I'll be off on hols from end of July through beginning of August, so I guess I should post off a bit early.
I have a pret love bar on my desk. Just deciding will I make the difficult phone call before or after it...
slf you won't get my book next month because it's gone missing in the post, but if you can get hold of it out the library, you should give it a shot. Out of all of them, it was the most like yours, so I think you'd like it. xx
arti thank you for the address to return the book - have not got round to starting it yet due to rereading my bookshelves to select my next book. Even resorted to going up into the loft to hunt out a book I always recommend and I think that is going to be the one - just wonder if it is too simple but I like it...
I will send the details to you arti but imagine it has not been high on everyone's 'must read' list, but then, you never know!
As for DD2 and her chickenpox - yes, she has/had it fabulously well! She has been a walking pox but is now all crusty and heading back to the childminders tomorrow. DD1 and DD2 are now both unlikely EVER to catch it again considering how well they have caught it.
Hope everyone else is enjoying this warm weather - I have two afternoons off each week and we have been spending lots of time at the beach. DD1 has also taken a liking for cricket although playing it at a 3 year old level is fairly simple!
