Had anyone been notified that they are going to be sent a copy or been told they were unsuccessful?
My PM of 3 April hasn't even been opened.

Oh dear. Don't say the Book Club is falling apart as well as the rest of GR :-(

I can't help as I didn't apply for this one but I usually get a response within a couple of weeks of applying.

Could be :-0

Being generous, Easter, WDYTYA and hiccups with Penguin might have got in the way

Glad you asked I've been wondering what's going on. My message hasn't been opened either.


Patricia Report 4 May 2015 20:34

Nor has mine. Strange!


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 5 May 2015 08:36

By now there'd be a thread acknowledging that the books had been allocated. That way even unsuccessful applicants would have known they'd missed out.


3 April PM still not read

They must have been listening!

My message was opened straight away some time ago and I got a message this morning my time, saying I should get mine in 7 days as well, but it has a lot further to travel than yours DET.

Just happy that I am getting it. It is the second time I have asked for one of the books, the other one was Toby's Room which I really enjoyed.

Lot of NZealanders go to Antarctica, it is like another world down there.

Genes are waiting for my review of the book now, got a message today.

Haven't received the book yet, and I do have other reading to do as well.

Fear not - neither have I. The despatch or otherwise is probably down to the publishers.
