Darling fellow bookcrossers,

I've just started to read all Fforde's Thursday Next books and will keep the books moving as I read them. These are great books - if you haven't read them yet, now is a great time to check them out :) PM me if you're interested!

Book #1 is available already: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/6921486/

Book #2 I'm currently reading: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/6921589/

Book #3 is on my TBR-pile: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/8061037/

I was recommended by a dear friend to read these books and I was so happy to get them via the BC-network ;) Thank you! Looking forward to hearing from y'all!

 

I would like to sign up for all three books in the Thursday Next series. I am from the Philippines and can ship anywhere. Thanks! :)

 

Great! I'll send you books 1-2 first and the next two later. I'll PM you for address.

 

I wanna try them out. But no rush. Feel free to put me at the bottom on the list, I have so many books to read :P

I live in Sweden and can ship internationally

 

I just wanted to say these are fantastic laugh out loud stories especially for anyone who likes literature.

 

I'm in the Netherlands and prefer to mail within the EU, but if that isn't possible, I'll mail internationally. I'll send you a PM.

 

Hi again,

I've finally read all four books. Two first are already at madpocky in the Philippines.

Book #4 link here http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/8024710

I've contacted madpocky if she'd like to get books 3-4 also. After her the books continue to

- VictoriaWagtail
- bookguide

Anyone else interested?

Edited to add:

I've located book #5 also http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/7242079 and have contacted the current shelfowner if she'd ship it to me. I'll keep the books moving should there be more interest in these fantastic stories :)

 

Dear all, I decided to wild release these books after all. I found a new book swap shelf at a library in neighbouring town. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause to yer book reading plans. Have a good day!

 

I have all seven in this series and would be happy to send them as a book spiral if there are still people wanting to read this series.

 

wingAbi-Gibbywing 5 yrs ago
Please
I've read book one so if on can I please be on list for book 2 and 3

 

I've never read any of them, but they sound interesting.

 

Looks like no recent activity from any of them except bookguide, who I've sent a PM.

 

Could do with a couple more readers to make this worthwhile.

Abi-Gibby and Winterbirth, what are your posting preferences please?

 

Shipping preference mainly Europe but USA if needed. I also have to say that i currently have a whole load of other book rings/ rays to read first so if ok with you can I be at bottom of list as it won't be fair on others if these two books are sat on my book shelf for a very long time

 

Thanks!

 

write me in for the next book, please. I can ship intl'

 

bookguide has suggested that these are sent round in pairs to reduce postage, which sounds like a good idea to me.

 

sent round in pairs to reduce postage

how it will help the postage?

 

I think it's cheaper to send two books together than two individually. Is that not the case for you?

Since several people are missing out book 1 that one will travel on its own.

 

I think it's cheaper to send two books together than two individually. Is that not the case for you?

It's hugely depends on the weight of the books. If one is more than 500g and the other less, than it's certainly worth it (you send the second one for no cost at all). Same thing about 250g+ and 250g- book. Otherwise it's not worth it, I believe

 

They're all around the same size. I'll send them out in pairs, but if you prefer to send them as two separate parcels that's up to you.

 

I live in Finland and I can ship international.

Could you please add me to all but number 6, which I've read (one of our Thursdays is missing) I'm in canada and prefer to ship Can/Us but can ship international if needed.

 

Have added you. :)

 

Removing Flutterbies9 from book 3, 4, 5 rays at her request.

 

Closing these rays to new entrants since they've been so problematic.

 

Replacing book 7 as I've given up trying to contact Lunatum. I posted the book to her in December, she replied to a PM saying that she's received the book but still hasn't journaled it and have now heard nothing from her since March.

Link to new book:
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14575519

 

Books are now registered (see links above) and ready to travel! :)

 

I would like to join, please! I live in Germany and can ship internationally.

I've been looking at this series for quite some time but hesitated to start reading - I was afraid I'd have to buy the entire series and spend WAY too much money... postage should be okay, though ;-)

 

Great, have added you. :)

 

and prefer to ship within the Netherlands, but would be okay with Europe too.

 

Great, you are in.

 

are now travelling. :)

 

Thanks!

These books sound like something very enjoyable, so if you have room for me I'd like to join please. The comment by teggers convinced me: "fantastic laugh out loud stories" :)
I live in Finland and prefer shipping within Europe, but int'l is ok if necessary.

RE: :)
I've added you. :)

 

My friend lent me book 2 and 3 so as I've now read them two can I be moved onto book 4 and 5 at bottom of list if ok with you. Sorry to be a pain

 

Done. :)

 

Cheers for that

 

I have sent first book to dutch-book.

 

Great! :)

Annoyingly books 2 and 3 were returned to me today after the man at the post office assured me that writing the contents on the envelope was enough and it didn't need a customs label - evidently he was wrong! Will repost very soon.

 

after the man at the post office assured me that writing the contents on the envelope was enough and it didn't need a customs label - evidently he was wrong!

It seems our customs became very strict lately. Sorry for the trouble!

 

Not your fault! I am cross with the man though as I specifically told him it needed a customs label... Hopefully they'll be with you before too long.

 

Now on their way to you again, complete with customs label. :)

Hi :)
Can I still join your Rings, greenbadger? I'd love to read these books.

I'm in Portugal, and prefer to ship within Europe. Thank you!

 

Sure, have added you. :)

 

Really looking forward to them.
I have a week to read them before going on May holidays =)

 

still like to join if possible

 

Of course, you are in. :)
Just the first six, right?

is on its way to Winterbirth

book 2
Received today. Look forward to reading.

 

to the next reader

 

Winterbirth 5 yrs ago
Book 3
Received today. Thanks Lamilla!

 

I discovered the series only two days ago when I stumbled across the first book at a library sale. I'd very much like to read book #2 and #3 - but I still have to read the first one, so it would be great to get them a little later in the year (what with some ring-books still in the TBR-Box, the hot I-have-to-water-the-tomatos-again weather, the world cup and all that...) I'm in Germany and can ship internationally.
Thanks for the offer!

 

Is it just 2 and 3 you want, not the rest of the series?

 

Oh, I didn't realize there were more on offer... It would be great to read them all, but, if possible, not too soon...
Thanks for the offer, once again!

 

Winterbirth 5 yrs ago
Book 2
Sending book to dutch-book tomorrow. Enjoy!

 

on their way to Lamilla today.

 

on their way to Lamilla today.

Received both!
I have some other ring to read before them

 

I over read again is there a chance to be added to the last two at the bottom of list and taken off book 4/5 list

 

I'd prefer not to put you right at the bottom as megami-no-ushi prefers not to send international, OK to put you a couple up from the end?

 

-Kata- 5 yrs ago
book 1
The first book is with me.

 

Winterbirth 5 yrs ago
Book 3
Will be sending to dutch-book tomorrow

 

I think Book 3 must have got lost - a month and a half seems far too long for the journey between Northern Ireland and Holland. :(

 

It's arrived safely. :)

Book 4
Arrived today. Thanks lamilla.

Update
just a quick update: I changed my address and I now live in Sweden :-) I think that shouldn't be a problem for this ray, since it's international anyways... but just to let you know!

 

Winterbirth 4 yrs ago
Book 4
On its way to dutch-book

 

I am almost finished with The unlikely pilgrimage of Harold Fry and then I will start book 3.
I think I will be able to send number 3 in a week and a half.

 

wingLamillawing 4 yrs ago
book 5
I haven't started book 5 yet, sorry for the delay

 

No worries, I might send books 6 and 7 to you soon anyway as I know they take a month to get there...

 

and I've started number 3.

 

Great, thanks for the update. :)

 

Why did you send to lunatum rather than bookguide who was next in the ray please?

 

Apologies, you've clearly stated on the release note that they asked to skip this one. Thanks!

 

I forgot to take my name off the list for book one when I got a copy in July until I got a PM from FraukeRo. I still would love to be included for the rest of the rays!

Book 2
I'm getting worried: how can it take three weeks for a book to travel from Finland to Sweden?? Let's keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best...

I was also getting worried, but the book finally arrived here today :-)

 

Anyone else want to read it? I guess I'll hold on to it for now...

 

Please note that Janeka has been removed from these rays, at her request.

Many thanks for adding me to this spiral.

I spotted this thread on the Forum rather late and did not know if I could join in and am very happy that not only can I join but I have already been contacted about book 1 in the series!

.... and yes, there are 9 butterflies in the mobile illustrated!

Winterbirth 4 yrs ago
Book 6
Has arrived. Just have to finish the book I'm currently reading then I can get started.

 

That was quick! :)

 

I'm in the UK and can post international.

 

I've added you. :)

 

Last book has been sent to the next reader.
greenbadger, thanks for sharing the books!

 

Last book has been sent to the next reader.

The book was returned to me as unclaimed.

 

That's strange, I'm sure Winterbirth is still active, have you contacted her?

 

I asked Winterbirth about a book some time ago, she replied quickly that the book hasn't arrived. I'm not sure what went wrong - all previous books reached Winterbirth just fine.

 

Are you sure you want to delete this item? It cannot be undone.
