HELLO READERS!

So it is now September 21 and we're not really anywhere near done with this little book circle. :D

I know that I personally have about 3 books on backup from lesley distant_dreamer that I will be recieving soon....I was on vacation for a few weeks so she held them for me.

Let's do this - can everyone leave a comment here detailing which books they have, so we can get this thing going? I want to read some books, yo! I'll edit this post with a list when people start commenting.

distant_dreamer should be sending The Boxcar Children, The Trumpet of the Swan, The Secret of Platform 13

Hey, I haven't seen much from this community lately.  I haven't sent out a book for a while, but I've been kind of in Harryland, and figured a lot of people on here would be as well.  When are we next sending out?  I would like to continue this thing!

So, it seems that you all are all still in this, which is fantastic. I think we can still make it work. But a few things have to be kept in mind:

1. Communication is KEY
    -Email the person above you when you receive the book
    -Email the person below you when you send a book
 2. Keep an eye on the community. If you don't read your friends' page much, or aren't on LJ use the notifications tool to get an email when this community is updated, that way you can't miss an entry.
3. If you go out of town or something for an extended period (more than three or four days, I'd say) give the person above you the person below you's information. You may miss a book or two, but the circle won't be stalled.

Feel free to post on the comm about anything. This is about making friends just as much as reading books! Discuss a passage you liked, or didn't; thematic issues, anything! Community spirit is an awesome thing!

Before anyone sends another book here's what you should have:


distant_dreamershould have The Secret of Platform 13
sailorscullyshould have Peter Pan
talimeekashould have Can You Keep a Secret?
spasmodicdbshould have The Secret Garden
greyandgrey  should have The Perks of Being a Wallflower
xopinkmoonxoshould have Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
fabalafaepottershould have Ella Enchanted
rancidmelody  should have The Virgin Suicides
kasuchishould have King of Shadows
bribitribbitshould have The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime
crystalnovashould have The Seer and the Stone
thefate72should have The Boxcar Children
petitecrivanshould have The Trumpet of the Swan

Make sure the person below you is about to send off the book they have before sending them another one, and check with the person above you to make sure they're sending you a book!

Next time I definitely see us dividing into smaller groups, but for this time let's just try to keep it fun!

If you have any problems, let me know.

Anyone think we should have a post that people reply to as soon as they send/receive a book? That way you can and make sure, along with sending emails to each other?
