think I will bow out - can't cope with being preggers and posting books (the two I have are nearly on their way to PO, honestly)

Please may I take normal too? I don't do much non-fic, I hate mislit, love early 20th century stuff, but only like classical pre-20th centur, so I'd be no fun. Yep...having wrtten this down, definitely normal for me please

I'm not fused whether it's a 1 year cycle or 2, if you decide one would be easier.

Tis what you are sending not receiving. Decided to let there be a slot for one non-fic and one pre/early 20th century so that we could open it up a bit for those who do want to try it, but not flood it.

So if you wanna be the early 20th cent sender....?

Put me down for sending out something pre-20th century - I have more books on this era than anything else!

And just to clarify we're:

carrying on circulating the books in the First Circle simultaneously, until they get home

and only posting on books from the swap (no substitutions - even if it means slight delays here and there).

that right flame?

Any idea if there will be another circle folks? If not then I would be really grateful for the info on how to coordinate one as it looks like a great way to make me read something out of my comfort zone. Thanks in advance

Sorry Flame I didn't make my view very clear. I meant sending, not receiving, when I quoted the normal stuff. I was referring to my current bunch of reading materials...I tend to lean towards the normal category more so than fact, pre-20th c, etc....so that's what I would prefer to send.

More speed and less haste, methinks, when I type my next email.

Also I meant not fussed rather than not fused (still having trouble with both the upstairs laptop keyboard and the 7 year olds!!)

Muchas Gracias flame- would obviously prefer NOT to organise my own if you have spaces, however will at least have an idea of what to do if I have to start one . Thanks.

Have decided to now bow out of this circle please. I don't want to commit and let people down. Life not too special for me at the moment. Thank you.

Thanks Korma...will do, probably later when I've got more spare time and haven't got a DD sat on my shoulder waiting to use the computer!
