Read in May, 2009

This book is traveling from Canada to Brazil, following to Sweden and then back to Canada. There are not enough words to describe such wonderful book, one of the best books I read recently. The author has a lyrical way of writing and we are strongly immersed into the story.

Lee Ooooh Laura, I absolutely loved this book!

Laura It looks to be wonderful....

Misfit I have had this one on my wish list for ages - looking forward to seeing what you think of it.

Laura I am trying to get through Bookmooch, lets see if I manage...

Misfit Next time I go to the library I must kiss the ground its built upon. I am so lucky.

Laura LOL!!!

Lee Laura,

If you don't mind waiting a while, I can send you my beloved copy once I unpack it. I use bookmooch sometimes too. Maybe we could do a book exchange?

Laura Really Lee?? I don´t mind at all and I can send you Bettie´s book, after Susanna reading.

message 9: by Lee (new) - rated it 5 stars

Lee Yes, of course. Let's share the book love. I just noticed that Bettie and Misfit marked it to read as well so why don't we do another chain? I'll send it to you and then you can send it to Bettie and then if Misfit is interested she can have a go. I would love to have it back at the end though because it is one of my favourites.

Laura Great idea!! Then is better to follow some geographical order: you-Misfit-Laura-Bettie if all 4 agree of course.

Misfit Pssst, thanks for thinking of me but the library has it when I'm ready to read it. I'm going to have to bump it up to the top though, its been languishing on my Amazon wish list forever.

Laura I wrote to Bettie also...

Lee Okay great! Let me know who wants it first.

Laura Bettie, where are you????

message 15: by Lee (new) - rated it 5 stars

Lee I think Bettie is busy baking up a storm. We can work out the details later. I won't be able to send it for a bit anyways.

Laura Okay....

Laura This book will travel from Canada to Brazil and Sweden. Back to Canada then.

Bettie☯ yes - and Lee will get the postcards this time - sorted!
