Dinny was not happy about big books, but she's opted out for next year.

So are we just looking for one more person? Should we put a big advert in Chat? Or are there people who have shown an interest before who are yet to reply?

Ok - now can everyone email me their address (flamesparrow at gmail dot com).

If you were in the last circle and haven't moved house/changed email since the start, then I have your address already.

Oh YEAH! I've never done a book circle thing, I think I will need a list of rules or something.
Will just email you.

Report
TinselianAstra · 11/12/2008 17:36

Rules are like this...

1 Pick a book:
No chick lit, mis lit, or non-fic (bar one)

2 Post it to the next person on the list: Flame will send you the 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

Easy, huh?

sleepyeyes · 11/12/2008 17:39

Thanks for the rules.
Whats Mislit?

Will have a look through my books see whats suitable.

Report
TinselianAstra · 11/12/2008 17:43

I think it's 'misery'. Books about child abuse, often semi-autobiographical, 'did't I have an awful childhood, poor me'.

I wasn't involved in the first circle so I'm just passing on what I've picked up.

Thanks, certainly dont own any of those types of books just reading the titles make me depressed.

FlamesparodyOfAChristmasName · 11/12/2008 18:16

sherby · 11/12/2008 18:27
