Journal Entry 1 by winggreenbadgerwing from St Albans, Hertfordshire United Kingdom on Sunday, March 02, 2014
Second book of the Thursday Next series and extremely funny. Thursday's marriage to Landen is short lived when her enemies go back in time and have him drown at age two and she is the only one to remember him. Then Thursday is nearly killed in a series of unlikely coincidences - could it be that her nemesis Acheron Hades is still alive? She must go back into the world of fiction to attempt to restore Landen and find out what is really going on.

Arrived today along with the next one and a cute koala card. Thank you! Looking forward to reading it

ETA: So strange that the main plot line remained unresolved! The ending is a killer of a cliffhanger, looking forward to the next book in the series.

Received book today with a nice post card, thanks! Can't wait to read.

On its way to dutch-books. Enjoy!

Arrived this week. Thanks for sending.

Journal Entry 10 by dutch-book at Heerenveen, Fryslân (Friesland) Netherlands on Wednesday, October 01, 2014
I finished this wonderful book yesterday. After the first book of Jasper Fforde I read Jane Eyre, which was pretty special, because I almost never read classics and I enjoyed it (although it took me a month.) And so we can conclude that that's a big plus for these books. I can't say much more than that I love these books, because they're about books, they're well written and they make you read other books, so what's more to want. I will now send bookguide a PM, because I'm sure she's eagerly awaiting this book.

Thursday Next arrived, thanks!

Journal Entry 14 by -Kata- at Tampere, Pirkanmaa / Birkaland Finland on Saturday, January 03, 2015
I liked this one a lot more than #1, maybe because now I knew what to expect from the start. I was a bit confused with #1 first... :)
This was a funny book with great characters and crazy ideas! :D I especially loved the time traveling bits. I can't wait to get #3 in my hands! Thank you so much greenbadger for organizing this!

My apologies for keeping this so long!

Looks like Thursday had an adventure of her own on the way from Tampere to Göteborg... but now she finally arrived savely :-) I'm looking forward to read!

Journal Entry 17 by wingFraukeRowing at Göteborg, Västergötland Sweden on Friday, January 30, 2015
I opened the book, saw the "Goliath Book Rating" and started grinning like a Cheshire Cat... Now someone please tell me where to apply for Jurisfiction! Or how to get back into this weird sidetrack of mine where ducks still exist but Neanderthal art isn't a thing - I feel like I got a little bit lost in the library ;-)

Journal Entry 19 by bluezwuzl at Altdorf (Niederbayern), Bayern Germany on Tuesday, February 10, 2015
Ha, the second Next book arrived on Saturday (together with two other ring-books...) I'm still with a VERY thick book, so it will take me a while... if I can resist...!
---
...I couldn't,
so the book is on its way again - in an especially grammasites-proof bag! And I'm really thinking about ordering those two pianos... *<;-D
Thanks a lot for sharing the book - I hope I can await the arrival of the next one...!

Journal Entry 20 by HappyHarryBabe at Callington, Cornwall United Kingdom on Thursday, March 05, 2015
This book arrived today, in the post, from bluezwuzl, as part of a bookspiral.

I have a couple to read before this but I'll try to get through them quickly. :)

Journal Entry 21 by HappyHarryBabe at Callington, Cornwall United Kingdom on Thursday, May 14, 2015
This was definitely better than the first one but not by that much. It was more interesting, with more action - love the action. I also love the Schitt brothers! :) The humour throughout was great.

I shall be posting this tomorrow, well not me personally, I found somebody willing to do it for me as I'm down with the flu.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Sent on to the next reader.

I am so, so sorry. I couldn't risk the grammasites ruining the book so I bound the packaging heavily in sellotape. I blame bluezwuzl for giving me such ideas. :P Have fun retrieving the book, and again I'm sorry.

This arrived yesterday, thank you! I can't wait to read it as soon as I finish my current book!

Released 3 yrs ago (8/8/2015 UTC) at Cravings Market Restaurant in Calgary, Alberta Canada

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

Taking to the August Murder and Mayhem meeting. This has more to do with mayhem than murder and is a jolly good romp! The puns are just as good as the first one and I love the imaginative book world where jurisfiction tries to keep the mayhem to a minimum!

Thanks so much for sharing! I'll send this around the Calgary bookcrossing group since I'm the end of the ray. :)

To the finder:
Calgary has an active group of BookCrossers that meet to swap books and discuss book crossing every second Saturday of the month at 11am at Cravings Market on Fairmount Drive SE. We always love to meet new crossers, so please join us any time you like!

Journal Entry 25 by locker-monster at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Sunday, August 09, 2015
Picked up this book at the Calgary BookCrossing August meet-up. I picked up the first Thursday Next book, so I figured I would get the second one, too.

Journal Entry 26 by locker-monster at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Friday, September 04, 2015
These books are so good. Why didn't I start reading them sooner?

I actually liked this one more than the first book. The plot didn't meander as much and much more is revealed about the book world. Man, the concept of Jurisfiction is so original. Fforde is a genius to have come up with two highly detailed worlds; Thursday's and the book world. I would love to read the rest of the series. I need to know if Thursday ever gets Landen back.

What a fun book! The whole Thursday next is just a bit confusing but funny. Imagine having your husband disappear and being able to jump in and out of books!

Picked up at get together

Journal Entry 31 by Eri-Cherry at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Saturday, July 14, 2018
Really enjoyed the second book, but feel like it was a different concept for the series compared to the first book. Definitely some twists I didn't see coming, or rather thought would get resolved within this novel. Hope to see the resolutions in future novels! Still enjoyed the writing styles and characters, and am interested to know more about this super villain family.

Thanks for the interesting read!
