Result therefore is

Tied first

Mr Penumbra's 24-hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan 1111
One Hundred Names by Cecelia Ahern 1111

Tied second

Paris wife
Thursdays in the park

Please try and read at least one of the ones that came first as that is the pount of the vote. However if you can also read and review any of the others in the top 4 that would be good. :-) :-)


AnninGlos Report 5 Jan 2013 09:36

As I already have Paris Wife and Thursdays in the park I will read those two but will get at least one of the others.


Michelle Report 5 Jan 2013 09:46

Was a bit early for the dentist so popped into the charity shop and there on the shelf was The Paris Wife for £1 - result! Almost made it worth going to the dentist.


TessAkaBridgetTheFidget Report 15 Jan 2013 01:12

Son took me to the library. Its the one I used befor I got married and left home, but haven't used it since then.

I remembered to take my "greaders Book" plus four paperbacks .... three library books, and one I had got from a charity shop!
That meant that I had left a library book at home. (and I thought that I was organised for a change).

The library had changed a lot, which is not surprising as it is over forty years since I was last there.

When going in, I saw a notice which said something about due to internet system changes they couldn't reserve books at the moment.

There is a lot moe "stuff" there than on my last visit including a community room, lots of tables, and comfortable arm chairs, computers, etc.

However, they don't seem to have a big selection of fiction books.

None of the "top four" or "other two" were in stock....... :-(

Then just looked for books by authors on the (complete) list. Found a couple by Cecelia Ahern, so came away with one.

When I started to read it I realised that I'd read it before! :-S

Not once, but twice ! :-S :-S

I had forgotton about it, which is rather ironic as it is called .....................

"Thanks for the Memories"

I liked it the first and the second time, but don't think that I will read it this time.

Can now only borrow books for three weeks, so the books are due back on 4th Feb. Perhaps next time I will have more luck. :-D :-D


AnninGlos Report 15 Jan 2013 09:31

Well done Pammy and commiserations Tess.


Vintagefinemaid Report 19 Jan 2013 18:04
