I always lose tracking numbers. It‘s pathological. @Shadowfat , in case you don‘t get my original package, I ordered a different book to make it up to you. It will get there on the 24th.

Shadowfat Thanks for letting me know! I still haven't gotten the original package, but I'm hoping it's just the mail being slow this time of year. 11mo

Finished my #lmpbc book! Keeping it a secret as I chose a different one in the end. Found the experience of marking up a really rewarding one. Will be coming out to you soon @DivaDiane and looking forward to reading yours and other's choices @Balibee146 @samharnold #groupx

Balibee146 Fab! I will be sending mine by next Monday at latest. Will post first class! Hope that's okay... Should still be within schedule. I'm doing some diplomas for a training course this weekend... It's for starting a new (second) business..... so hectic is an understatement.😍😍😘 2y
jhod Of course that's ok, I can't believe I'm early for once (the book is quite short!). Hope everything goes ok - sounds exciting! 2y
DivaDiane You are making me nervous! I‘m only about halfway through mine (even though it‘s short), but I‘m confident I‘ll finish it this coming weekend (if not before); we are traveling to Italy and I should be able to get some good reading time in. 😘 @Balibee146 @samharnold @jhod #groupX 2y

Loving this mystery book vendo machine here at The Arts House in Singapore. Opening Night of the Singapore Writers Festival #SWF2017 and I am so ready to be inspired.

AmyG Oh wow. That vending machine is dangerous. ;) 2y
GatheringBooks @AmyG i restrained myself because i was afraid that i will get something i already have. that will be twenty dollars down the drain. :( 2y

Hey fellow Group Xers I got the copy of my book through the mail today. I did read it many years ago, just the once. Lent my copy and never got it back. I hope you don't mind it is not a completely new read for me! It is only 203 pages long yay! I'm a #slowreader.
Are we presharing / checking titles or surprising each other?

@DivaDiane @jhod @samharnold #GroupX
@suvata #LMPBC

samharnold I was going for the surprise element but let me know if you think different (edited) 2y
DivaDiane I thought I'd go with a book I love, but haven't read in a while. So, that's fine with me! 2y
Balibee146 @samharnold @DivaDiane cheers sounds good 👍👍👍 2y

Sneaking in my #readersgonnaread book before our rotation starts at the end of the month, so it's a #readeverywhere type of day today. Even while making tea. Not pictured: my cat, literally sitting on my feet, thinking he's going to get fed. 😹 Poor, misguided kitty.

emilyhaldi My cats mistakenly think they're getting fed literally every time I step foot in the kitchen 🤣 2y
Sace My cats think they are getting fed if we make eye contact. *sigh* 2y
erinreads @RestlessFickleBookSlut @emilyhaldi The counter where we usually dish out his food is his trigger for ALL THE FOOD. I might just start preparing his food in the hall closet, next to his enemy, the vacuum, and see how much he likes that. 🙃 2y
Sace @erinreads 😂😂😂😂😂 2y
Reviewsbylola I decided to stick with not reading my book first. So excited! 😁😁 2y

Help needed!! I am looking for the name of a recently released or soon to be released book about a woman involved with a married politician, big scandal erupts...she moves away, changes her name and gets on with life. Years later the story comes up when she runs for office herself. I heard about it on a podcast I think and i was thinking about it today and really want to read it...but can't think of the name 😬🙄. Any ideas book people??

Cinfhen No, but it sounds good! 2y
Anovelobsession I found it... but it doesn't come out until August ☹️😩 2y

Well this is exciting! A parcel has arrived! I have permission from my secret santa (via a forwarded email from @BookishMarginalia) to open it early if I want. I, of course thought, no way! But now that it's here... 😏
But no! I will be strong. Must stash it somewhere. Out of sight, out of mind.

A Blind Date with a Book stand at the local supermarket...of course I couldn't resist! I went for: Dark thriller, twisted killer, small town Texas, brutal, crime novel (for my mum who loves anything gruesome!) She hasn't opened it yet so it's still a mystery!

Cinfhen In your supermarket?!? Oh, I love that!!! Hubby would think I only bought an extra pack of paper towels and laundry detergent!!!! 3y
LeahBergen This is fantastic! I wouldn't be able to resist throwing one in my shopping cart. 3y
Lindy This is great! 3y
Bambolina_81 @Cinfhen @LeahBergen @Lindy I know! It was fabulous. There were about 5 different books to choose from so mum and I chose one for each other. They were all £7 each. Gutted though because we mixed them up and I've taken my mum's book home instead of mine so the mystery goes on until I see her next 😣 3y
LeahBergen Oh no! 3y

I stopped in one of my favorite places today while I was on my lunch break - Brazos Bookstore and they had a display called Blind Date with a book. Books wrapped up with only a description about what they are about. I couldn't resist and got this one. I'm trying to figure out what it is before I open it...any guesses?

Sweettartlaura I would say it's a Christie/Poirot, but I don't think they're very long, usually... Dying to know now😍 3y
Anovelobsession I'm putting off opening it - I'm loving the anticipation! 3y
kspenmoll Fun idea! 3y
