Winners should be receiving their copies in the next few days. Don't forget that if you do receive one, please leave your thoughts, reviews and questions for Victoria on this thread by the end of November.

Happy reading!

How do I enter to win a copy please?

Jalima I too looked for that info but failed.

Pittcity Thu 10-Nov-16 15:19:48

You are too late for this one, but there is a link under the books tab above for you to apply in the month before. December's will be announced soon and will be in the newsletter.
PS. Has anyone received this one?

LadyGracie Thu 10-Nov-16 19:40:10

Do you have to enter every month?

Jalima Thu 10-Nov-16 19:46:57

thank you Pittcity smile

now I just have to remember to look out for it

Pittcity Fri 11-Nov-16 08:22:09

LadyG you enter when you like the look of the book and are able to read and comment in the specified time frame.

Pittcity - I can't see the link. And what newsletter? Sorry if I'm being thick.

Pittcity Fri 11-Nov-16 09:51:00

Bella at the top of this page right under the Gransnet logo is a green strip that starts "Forums". Fourth along is "Books", click on that and Book club details are on that page.
Gransnet send an email newsletter daily if you have opted to receive it. That would be in your Preferences, the link for which is on the far right column at the bottom of this page.

Ah yes. Thanks Pittcity, I've found them both now.🙂

cazthebookworm Fri 11-Nov-16 17:15:24

I've applied, really hope I get this one smile

Anyone received a copy yet?

Pittcity Thu 17-Nov-16 18:38:10

Not me. Looks like it'll be the December book.....

All the monthly books seem to be delivered very late now. Perhaps GNHQ should miss a month and get it back on track. It's not always easy to read a book and comment by the end of the month when you've only had it a few days.

Purpledaffodil Sat 19-Nov-16 14:20:59

Think it's the publishers rather than GNHQ though because they seem to come directly from the publishers ..... eventually. grin

Maggiemaybe Sat 19-Nov-16 15:49:51

You're probably right there. And I don't want to appear ungrateful at all (so don't strike me off the list, GNHQ!) - I'm always thrilled when that book drops through the letterbox, however late in the month it is.

Greenfinch Mon 21-Nov-16 18:16:09

What is the December book ?

Purpledaffodil Tue 22-Nov-16 09:43:50

Hurrah! It came this morning. Thanks very much GNHQ. flowers

Greenfinch Tue 22-Nov-16 09:58:47

Mine too. I look forward to reading it

Waveney Tue 22-Nov-16 09:59:17

Thank you for my copy which arrived this morning. The cover was enough to cheer me up in this awful weather!

gillyknits Tue 22-Nov-16 10:17:43

Thank you so much for my copy that arrived today. I will try and get it finished in Nov. but there's only eight days to go!

ValC Tue 22-Nov-16 11:19:28

I received a copy of this book today, what a lovely surprise. I am nearly at the end of my current book so will start it in the the next day or so. Looking forward to reading it

Thanks for my copy, received it today, an unexpected surprise.

grandMattie Tue 22-Nov-16 13:28:20

Me took I've just received my copy. I'm a fast reader, but... perhaps the suggestion to miss a month, or report back a month later might be considered by GNHQ?
