Complete Thread
The idea is that we are able to offer what we're reading and others can request it sent.
Each person will have one post in the thread which they are able to change as they read.
The post title will be the title and author of the book.

Once the book has gone the title of the post will change to ............. Indicating that There is no book to offer currently while the book is read having been requested or the post owner takes a break.
Once read and onto the next one the owner of the post will change the title to whichever book that is.
That way Each offer will only take up one line of the thread since Individuals will be editing the same post each time.
For my post I will post in the body of the text which one went where.(just for my own amusement😀)

‘There is something irresistible about Simon Schama’s writing.’ - Saturday Telegraph, Jon Swaine

‘Treating American history as a temporal skating rink, Schama zips back and fourth, exploring the civil war and then the evangelical attack on slavery that played a part in igniting the conflict..Schama talks and writes – a blue streak. This gung ho work is wholly in tune with its subject. - The Independent, Christopher Hirst

This is a great idea, how did it take me so long to stumble into here? ! My current read is already promised elsewhere, but I'll have a raid of my bookshelf in the morning to make an offer

My first offer is White Teeth by Zadie Smith

PM me if you want it :-)

 

I'm sorry I missed this!
I would have Mooched it but it was too late - have asked for you to be my friend on BM though :)

Are we meant to be always editing our original post as new books become available or posting new ones?

Edited to add: I've just seen the original post that says "Each person will have one post in the thread which they are able to change as they read".

I don't know if this is working, because some people (myself included) scroll straight to the bottom or last page of forum posts to see most recent posts... For the people who have posted at the top it may not be obvious that new books are available unless people have time to scroll through the whole thread.

I can see others are posting a new post every time they have a new book. Could someone please clarify? :-)

First Casualty by Ben Elton taken.

 

That is a great book IMHO but I've (obviously) already read it. Very different from, and superior to most of Ben Elton's other novels I think.
