Book arrived today. Thank you very much, will read it soon!

Journal Entry 6 by nediamnori87 from St Andrews, Scotland United Kingdom on Wednesday, October 14, 2009
I'm enjoying the series mostly because of the ease of which they can be read. The stories are nice and give you that warm feeling that everything is resolved at the end of them. I particularly like the way that you get lots of mini stories in one as such but it still comes together as a singular story.

Thank you again bookowl1000 will send this on after the 2nd book has been sent off.

received this today, I have a few other bookrings/rays to read before hand, but I sooooooo cannot wait to get round to this one!

Journal Entry 11 by Jonniboi from Birmingham, West Midlands United Kingdom on Friday, April 09, 2010
I enjoyed this, but I think there was few detectiveness going on, there was only 3 things to do and only 2 which was hard and made it more enjoyable, but I miss the constant rapid problems that got sent their way in the first book, I sure hope that the ones after this one get better, I'm still really looking forward for the next book.

I shall send this out sometime, maybe in may when I have more money! But may be a little bit earlier!

Has arrived safely. It will be staying with me for the moment as I have been having difficulty contacting wamstreet. The last I heard from her was when she said she was about to send on the first book but has not.

Update 15 May 2010: Sadly, wamstreet has passed away after an extended illness. I will keep this book until sunfi has caught up with the previous two.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Posted to sunfi to continue the ray.

This has probably arrived way later than the original plan of end of June. That is because I was planning on sending them airmail, however Royal Mail has recently put up all their prices so airmail is now 4 times the price of surface mail - was in shock when the postmaster gave me a price for something else!

Anyway, enjoy your reading.

I've finally arrived in VA (after a bit of a delay) and the books were waiting patiently for me. I'm traveling this week, but I hope to start the this one this week. Bookowl1000, thanks for mailing these to me and including the great postcard and bookmark. I will try to have them on my way as soon as I can.

Update: 30 Sep 11 - Just finished this one this morning. I've contacted the next in line for their mailing address and as soon as I have that I'll be able to pass this one on. I'm sorry for the delay. Things have been crazy since the move and the start of the new job, I hope things settle down here soon. I'm starting the next book right away and hope to have it on its way in the next couple weeks, I hate to hold up rings (and books).

Thanks for sending this back to me.

It was lovely to find such a colourful package in my mail box...and chocolate too! I will be saving that for a special occasion as good chocolate is not easy to come by here.

Many thanks.

I am glad that people are enjoying the series.
The books have certainly been on some interesting travels.

This book is being lent to the school library.

Take good care of the book and put it back on the shelf when you have finished so that others may borrow it.

Why not help build up a journal about the book and its travels.

Where has it been?
What did you think of it?
