Hope you enjoy the book, Rowan. :D

Well, they were an attempt at recompense since I promised chocolates years ago and never got around to making them (well, I was going to, but all the bits and bobs that I bought to make got lost in the move and now I can't find anything useful. Also, I'm better at baking! :D).
Image<-- Sir Gwaine representing the letter "G" in the TVM!

Life is short; break the rules, forgive quickly; kiss slowly; love truly; laugh uncontrollably; and never regret anything that made you smile. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Grab a chance and you won't be sorry for the might-have-beens. - Arthur Ransome

Just because I have the vocabulary of a well-educated sailor doesn't mean I'm not a lady.

I can't believe how many times I saw the caption and yet never entered the thread ... Anyway, I finally dared step over the threshold - and would be interested in joining the list to receive the book, which must have undergone quite a transformation by now.

Canamarth :hug:, that is awesome that you want to get in on this. :D You will need to be in touch with Rowan for her to send it on to you. I think you will like the book. :D I did.

And there might be goodies left over too!! :D

I think Rune was also interested? In that case, it would pass from me to Rune and from her to Canamarth, unless they arrange it the other way round. :)

You are right Rowan. Runzies is next on the list. I know that she is still in The Netherlands, but probably going to be coming back to the US in a week or so.

So Canamarth, you will have it after Runzies. :D

I finished the book yesterday, and will pass it on to Rune in the near future; but, I think it's best to wait until she's back in the US. And, I'll have to check her address in any case.

I'll post more in the discussion thread on a better time. :)

Runesy is back in the US. :) Sadly.

If you need my US address, Rowan, just let me know and I'll send it to you via facebook or e-mail.

Can't wait to see (and read!) this well traveled book. :D

Rune, I'm not sure if I have your current US address so, would you please e-mail it to me? rowaninbloom at gmail dot com.

Life's gone a bit crazy lately, but I'll add my own goodies to the parcel and send it to you ASAP. :)

Thanks, Rune, got your mail. :)

I don't think I will get it mailed until on week 9, when I'm on vacation. I'll let you know as soon as I get at it.

No problem! I have two books going right now so perhaps they'll have the chance to be finished before that one arrives. ;)

Upon which time I shall read it ASAP and...ship it back across the ocean again!! That is one well traveled book for certain. :P

May I also add myself to this list? If the book is as good as all that has been said about it, I wouldn't mind giving it a shot. Plus it would be really great to hold something that other people I have never met before have held and read. It seems as though everybody has had a good time with it so far.

You haven't met me before (and I am actually a New Jersyite who attends college in good ol' Pennsylvania, Grantham actually). I'm relatively new, but I would still like to get to know the people around here. I have already joined the Bards Guild (The oldest guild on the Forums, they say). Thank you for including me.

Ah, nice. I went to Arcadia University in Glenside, outside of Philly...one of my good friends is a New Jerseyite who came to PA for school. :D

Anyway, so as to not clutter here, I shall just wish you a belated welcome to TORC and if you ever wish to chat I have a mostly dead but still there PA guild dangling in the depths of the alliances and guilds first page. ;)

Welcome on thread and to the "book read" Erucolindon Atarnarmo, is there a nick name we can call you to get around the long name? :D

Wildwood :D:D:D:D:D:D:D Will add you to the list when she shows up next.

I think you will like the book and it is very fun to get something that you know others have held and read before you, that aren't TOTAL strangers anyway. :D


Thanks Runzies for dropping in on the HELLO thread and giving us a link to the pictures!! :D

Oh and Erucolindon, you are most welcome on the HELLO thread in Talk too, please feel free to drop in, we are a very friendly bunch there.

I think we should. And another lovely pass around would be grand. I suspect that Wildy will be here soon enough and give her opinion on it. I need to get the book and re-read it again anyway.

Thanks Atar!! Much easier to remember.
