Journal Entry 1 by voveryte from Woolwich, Greater London United Kingdom on Saturday, February 7, 2009
A TV chef who specialises in outrageous cakes tempts a monk who bakes bread for his brothers; a surprise visitor invites mayhem into the perfect minimalist flat in the season of good will; a woman explains her unique view of straying husbands; starying husbands encounter a variety of inventive responses. These are just some of the treats on offer in this sumptuous box of delights.

"This stunning collection is about modern relationships - and modern women. Every twist and turn, nuance and delicacy of the mating game is portrayed. It is a significant accomplishment." - Daily Mail

I received this book a while ago. I am looking forward to reading it. Please, let me know when I keep it for too long. I tend to lose track of time. Thank you for sharing.

I enjoyed reading this book. Sorry for keeping it so long. I have been dealing with some medical issues. This will be going on to the next person soon.

Journal Entry 19 by wingAzukiwing at Miami, Florida USA on Tuesday, April 26, 2011
Book has arrived. I am sorry I haven't journaled it sooner, I think it arrived while I was packing for the BC convention, so it was put together with all the mail we received. Now I few days after I returned, I am cleaning up my house and found that I have this package sitting here.

I just started on a thick 600 page novel but will get on this next.

Journal Entry 20 by wingAzukiwing at Miami, Florida USA on Thursday, May 19, 2011
I enjoy all of the stories, some more than the other. While many of them are about unfaithful husbands, there are stories with horror elements in them too. My favorites are The Wave Machine and The Magic Box.

I haven't heard back from darkpunkangel, and will send a follow up.

ETA: May 23 - still haven't heard fm DPA. Will send pm to Alienagr.

ETA: May 24 - Received Alienagr's address. Will skip DPA and mail to her instead to keep the ring going.
