Can someone email me Squilly's address & I'll post it back to her?

Flossie, I really enjoyed it. It was so well-written, I finished it in a couple of days, couldn't put it down! Poor ds was a little neglected at times

I really liked it too - but have just been exchanging words on another site with someone who absolutely hated it and basically skim-read from Chapter 4.

has anyone sent me a book this week at all???

am wondering as I have been sent a parcel, but the post office have lost it.

they posted a parcel form to me yesterday, to come collect the parcel today, and when I went they could now find it......they said they would ring but haven;t yet, and asked if I had any idea what size parcel it would be, and the packaging etc.

My friend whose baby was due next Monday gave birth this afternoon at 2.25. It's her first baby, and she was on Facebook at a quarter to 8 with nary a twinge, so I think it's fair to say she's feeling somewhat, um, "surprised", right now...

Dammit, I wish I could have babies that easily.

I haven't picked mine yet. Psycho, did you want us to let you know what we were proposing to send round just in case of any duplicates?

No, you don't have to let me know what book you're sending - I very much doubt we will ever manage to double judging by the difference last time!

I am going to CAT anyone who has raised an interest in joining over the last 12 months to come sign up - first sign, first in - seems fairest.

I guess you'll want to do this when there are a full 12 signed up, but can we have a recap of the rules?

1 Pick a book (restrictions?)

2 Post it to the next person on the list (how do we get their address?)

3 Receive a book in the post

4 Read it

5 Comment on the book you get

6 Post it on again at the beginning of the next month

7 Go to step 3

1 Pick a book (restrictions?)

No chick lit, mis lit, or non-fic (bar one)

2 Post it to the next person on the list (how do we get their address?)

I will send you addresses (obv if you are ok with me having your address) OR you can send it directly to your sender (I need to juggle with the order a bit).

3 Receive a book in the post

4 Read it

5 Comment on the book you get

6 Post it on again at the beginning of the next month

So how do people feel about scifi? I have an alternative (sort of crime-ish, quite funny) if the general opinion is anti-scifi.

Yep, fine with you having my address.

I think the vote was against sci fi and fantasy as there were a couple in the last group that people found hard going. I am really intrigued about what they were as I didn't get them!!!
