I'm going to tag tanrtan with My Son's Story by Nadine Gordimer


Umm . . . Billbooks, it's actually amberC who is next in line to be tagged as she just tagged me yesterday. Do you have anything from her wishlist instead?


- Make sure you have the sort options set to "Flat - Latest First" so you can see who is next in line to be tagged.

Do this by looking at my profile picture next to "Australasia Wishlist Tag Game" you will see "Sort Options" click on the downward arrow and select "Flat - Latest First" and this will keep my original post in place, but the posts beneath it will be most recent, so you can see who is next in line to be tagged.
