The Kalahari Typing School for Men
8 journalers for this copy...
Given to me by a friend for 'that book thing you do'
Have heard good things about it on BCAUS so I will probably give it a go. It's small enough that it can be tucked in the bag and taken to Japan.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Arrive just before the 44 Scotland Street. Yummy two by a favorite author. I just LOVE book crossing. I have one book ahead of it so I will try to savor them all and enjoy the anticipation.
Just love this author. His characters make you laugh and want to hug them through the pages. Thank you so much for sharing. It's a week more than I planned because i went out of town and then got sick but I'm back in the office and will request addy and mail it off.
No response from vibrant art. will ask geishabird for her addy. Maybe when she's done she can check to see if vibrant art is still interested.
Off to geishabird but earlier than the date of this entry. I forgot to journal before I dropped it in the mail.
Received; thank you! I've enjoyed this series so far. (I will PM vibrant-art when done; if no response, will move onto charliewendy.)
Another very charming and enjoyable entry in this series. I love the way the female characters display their attitudes towards men in exchanges like the following:
"There are a dozen machines or so," said Mma Manapotsi. "They don't work properly, you know..."
"I don't mind," said Mma Makutsi. "They're only for men."
"Well, that's all right then," said Mma Manapotsi.
These books are a really interesting look at a country and culture which is not very visible to the rest of the world. Thanks for sharing.
Book will be sent on its way shortly.
EDITED Dec 2nd/06: I have had no luck reaching vibrant-art either, so in order to keep this ray moving, I'll move to the next on the list.
EDITED Dec 10th/06: vibrant-art has resurfaced and the book was mailed to her on December 6th.
This has arrived safe and sound--I will journal again soon! Thanks!
I agree--a fun and quick read. The writing is warmhearted, witty, often humorous, and full of interesting places and people.
Thanks for including me in the bookring! I have contacted collectorkerri and will send the book on its way soon. Sorry for not being easy to contact in the fall--thanks for your patience!
Arrived today. Will read ASAP.
Another enjoyable entry in the No. 1 Ladies' series. I liked that Mma Makutsi got a slightly larger role in this one--and a love interest! I do wish Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni would decide on a wedding date, though. I am looking forward to insight into the Botswanan wedding ceremony.
Sent to Antigone1 today.
I just received this in the mail - many thanks, collectorkerri and everyone in the bookring!!
As usual, a very nice read! I look forward to reading the other books in the series... Sent to charliewendy as part of the bookring last week (the other two people on the list had already read it). Enjoy!!
Thanks Antigone1, received today, safe and sound!
Another wonderful journey with Precious and her loved ones. I love these characters and I love Botswana too - or at least the Botswana of this series. I wonder if it is really like this? I would love to find out one day. It is comforting to imagine that such a warm and earthy place really exists.
Thanks so much for sharing totoroandmei!!
This went in the mail to you today totoroandmei.
Thanks for sharing!
