Unexpected book mail today! (I thought I ordered something off of Amazon in my sleep again 😴) I believe it‘s from one of my fellow #TheBreakfastBookClub members since this was one of the books that we lost. Thanks to whoever sent it my way - I‘ll pick up a notebook before passing it along to @melyndarae

whatsthEStorey Oh wow that got there fast!!! I was going to post today, I ordered it just yesterday and it was due Friday the 29th! Go Amazon! I included a notebook in the package with The Lost Girl of Astor Street with my notes from Point, Claw. The package was supposed to go out this weekend, but Christmas procrastination....it will go out Wednesday. 7mo
whatsthEStorey Also, now that I look at the picture again, I did not order the uncorrected proof. 🤔 Is that a paperback and is it used? I ordered a new hardcover. (edited) 7mo
whatsthEStorey Just got off with Amazon customer service, they will be sending the correct item, so be watching out for a new one! It should be a new hardback, so let me know how it looks when it gets there! 7mo

chelreads @whatsthEStorey it is used and paperback. I can send this copy back to you or Amazon - let me know what you prefer! 7mo
whatsthEStorey Nope, no need to return it. I told them it was a gift so they will just send you the right one! 7mo
