Has anyone received this month's book yet? It seems a bit late to do a review by the end of the month if not!

We are checking with the publisher that the books have gone out or are en route - but don't worry, of course we will allow extra time for you to read and ask questions etc. We will update you shortly

No, but I had an email about three weeks ago to say I'd be getting one. Was it last month they came out really late and then some of us got two copies? grin

Maggiemaybe Wed 13-Sep-17 09:48:24

Oops, no, it was earlier. I didn't get one last month.

Right, apparently a delay with the warehouse. We hope those who have been notified that they have won a copy will receive them either at the weekend or very early next week. Don't forget that if you do get a copy you need to leave your reviews and questions for the author on the thread within the month (obviously as you will get the books late we will extend this into October)

I've a couple of books in recent months including Augusts, but I've never had an email to say I'm getting a book. Is this a new thing?

cornergran Wed 13-Sep-17 17:58:30

Ah, useful to know, I was wondering what had happened as the email came a while ago. Look forward to getting the book next week.

Gagagran Wed 13-Sep-17 18:02:04

I've had several books and never had an email either LadyGracie. Perhaps it's part of the revamp we have had.

Maggiemaybe Wed 13-Sep-17 18:45:11

Yes, it must be new. I've never had an email before to tell me the book will be on its way.

Mapleleaf Wed 13-Sep-17 19:06:01

Me neither.

Mapleleaf Wed 13-Sep-17 19:08:08

So, I suppose as I've not had an email, I've not been lucky this month. Oh well, there's always next month to try 😊

Greyduster Tue 19-Sep-17 13:00:10

Well, I've had an email - I just haven't had a book yet!

BBbevan Tue 19-Sep-17 13:49:59

Not yet but I am expecting one

Maggiemaybe Tue 19-Sep-17 21:54:55

Same here. I see October's choice is there to apply for now, if anyone's not noticed. 😊

Gagagran Wed 20-Sep-17 10:07:12

Very odd that September's book seems to have disappeared into the ether. Has anyone had one? There's no thread running for it either.

I have read the October book "Cousins" and can recommend it - it's a good read.

Maggiemaybe Wed 20-Sep-17 10:27:30

I've got my fingers crossed that it turns up today. We're off for a short break tomorrow (Ryanair and the French air traffic controllers permitting) and I was hoping to take it with me. smile

GeminiJen Wed 20-Sep-17 12:42:37

Maggiemaybe....I had my fingers crossed last week, before I headed off for a week of cat and flat sitting...
But it didn't work!
Flying home this pm..Ryanair willing.......
Good luck to us both!

BBbevan Thu 21-Sep-17 18:03:44

matson Thu 21-Sep-17 18:05:26

cornergran Thu 21-Sep-17 18:21:02
