Indeed I did. ;) Perhaps I'll start reading it this evening! Still trudging through the Hunchback of Notre Dame, but Hugo can wait. :P

Is the book good? Maybe put me on that list. I could use a distraction.

I read it rather fast to be honest. I thought it held interest enough to read it through without going to another book or instead of watching a TV program. It is a good solid book to read.

There is a thread with spoilers on it, so if someone is going to read the book, I would suggest NOT reading the spoiler thread.

So when do we start the next one around?

RUNZIES....you finished the book. Let us know your thoughts.

And who gets it next?

Are we going to start #2 going around?

If no one else wants to I will do the deed.

Yes, Runey, we wantssss your thoughts about it. :D

I think that Canamarth was the next in line, if she's still interested, and Rose after her.

Well, I just sent a message to her on facebook to confirm I have the right address for her and then I shall get it in the mail as soon as possible!

I'm afraid it will need a new box, though. Not sure if the one it came to me in has traveled with it much, but it got rather beaten up on its last transatlantic flight. :P

It seems Erucolindon has disappeared already though, so perhaps Canamarth shall be the last...unless Rose and Lalaith decide to hop on. :)

And a "couple of days" have passed. :oops:

The book made its way to me some time in May. I opened the box, feeling like an archeologist, unearthing layers of papers of my forebears. A wonderful experience. Then had to lay off reading for a while for various reasons. But I've now finally finished the book. Made some undecipherable notes which I may add to the package (and post in the spoiler thread) - if there's anyone who wants to have the book. :)

Rose, are you on FB?

I'll be off on holidays starting Saturday but will be back online by mid-August at the latest.

So were you last last on the list to read the book Canamarth?

I was wondering if we wanted to do the next book out. This took quite the time making it around the globe, but I think it was a fun adventure.

:D

If Rose still wants it next, I can get you her address.

Hello all! First off, must ask your forgiveness for suddenly disappearing on you, for literally half a year! Will go update the main thread, to get us up to speed, and then will return in a sec.... :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Ok! That's done! :D:D:D:D:D:D

Now - for starters, a better apology.... I am so sorry I let this lapse as long as i did. I don't want to get into particulars, but let's just say I had a lovely holiday in december. Went on a cruise with my tall dark and handsome, my very best friend, and my Mom and an Aunt. But January brought with it stress and pain of a difficult nature. It took literally every ounce of my energy to deal with it.

Don't worry. No deaths and no major illnesses. Good grief...that sounds cryptic. Let's just say - something really awful happened to someone I lvoe more than I love my next breath. Every single bit of strength, ingenuity, support, personal power - everything I am and have - went into defending protecting and avenging. And then - I was just tired. :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

If you can imagine it, I couldn't even find the strength to READ! That's just not me at all! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

I had a really hard time finding any of this ====> :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D in my soul. BUT now things are getting better every day, and my smilies are BACK!
:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D
:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D
:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D
:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

So - as i understand it, Canamarth has the book at present. And I agree, unless the Atar comes back again at some point, we will view her(his) participation as conditional, and skip on over to Rose.

As for the other book, I am very happy to go purchase it this week and get busy reading it. then we can follow the same list as before, and send it round? discuss! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

You know what? Life can be tough. You think you've gotten as tough as you need to be, and then it hands you something you never imagined you'd have to deal with, and you fight a little harder - get a little stronger.
Feels a little like waking up from a nightmare, really. I'm just grateful that - no matter how hard it gets - it could be a lot worse! We've hung on through tougher times than these.

and having a place like this to come back to, even after all these months, and find friends and diversion and just common connections, like LOTR and Mrs. Quint...well, these are the things that get me through!
:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

That, and chocolate! LOTS and LOTS of chocolate!
So - will go get the second book, directly, and get us rolling on round two!
I can't wait to see what happens next!
:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

HUGS!

I would be in again for the second book pass around.


It might be fun for the last person to send it back to you Wildwood so that you could see all the comments and such. That was part of the fun and since you started it, you haven't seen that.


So Canamarth should send the last book to Rose? Then Rose could send it to you. :D I like that idea.

Glad to read that you are doing better with all the life trials that have been tossed in your path. :hug:

Thanks Rwhen!!! Every bit of support and encouragement is always welcome!
:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Nothing can really stop the :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D!

I got the first book, again, in electronic form, and I am going to re-read it, so I am fresh when I get the second one. Confession - I bought the second one in electronic form as well, but not gonna read that one til I get it in real book form!

It just wouldn't be the same, if we were not all reading the very same book. Holding it the, dog-earing the pages, all that stuff. :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

As for the last book coming to me again - it would be cool to see all the comments and things, but I never really intended that it should be sent back to me. Wherever it stops....that's a good spot for it to stop. And then - if anyone else wants to request the book, to join the pass along, then that person should just send it on. That way - it hopefully never really stops! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

I've had a really good time following the progress of the book, from person to person! Well worth it!!! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

HUGS to you!
(You know...Hershey Hugs....those little kiss things that have the white chocolate or other types of stuff in em?)

Also very happy to see the book is still going round! :D

I bought the 2nd volume a while ago (I was on Amazon, ordering something entirely different, and once I was there, you know...I'm sure you understand... ;) :D ), but haven't started it yet. :D

Don't blame you at all, True! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D (And thanks!) I would have as wel, had I been confronted with it, in a bookstore! Couldn't have stopped myself. :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D I will get the second one, in book form, here directly (ie: soon as I can get to a bookstore and find it!) . I do want to do a quick re-read of the other one, so it is fresh to my my mind, when I tackle the second one. I love to re-read books that I like!!! (I also watch movies I like over..and over...and over...much to my tall, dark and handsome's dismay!) :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

If you get it read before we start the pass around, we can still send it to you, and you can read it again! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

I just downloaded both books to my Nook. I am going to re-read the Magician and then move to the other book. There are three now I think.

So did the book ever get sent to Rose???

I haven't heard, one way or the other. I suppose we can wait and see....we're not in any rush! :D:D:D:D I didn't know a third one was out already. I am not paying attention properly! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

I am just beginning my re-read of the first one. My local Borders closed on me, so now I have to find time to go to the other, slightly more difficult to get to, bookstore in my area. Its a booksamillion. I like it too. Its just not as conveniently located. NOt that a convenient location seems to have helped Borders much. (sigh) I miss it already.

I wish there was a Barnes and Noble around here. I would move IN! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Brownies! I got brownies! Who wants one?

I'll take a brownie! And swap for kohlrabi casserole which is baking in the oven at the moment. :)

The book is still with me - my precioussss ... :twisted:

I was sort of waiting for Rose to say *peep* in here - but I can send it on to her as a surprise - if someone gets me her address. ;)

I have not gotten teh second one in book form yet (how weird is it that I am saying that???!!!) :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D/. I have it on my nook, but I haven't read it yet either. So we take our time, and wait for Rose. And I will go get the book soon. I have been very very busy....life keeps getting crazier and crazier. I give up waiting for it to settle down. Time for a new seat belt! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Hope everyone had a nice Holiday. Will check back again soon....
