I have finally acquired a copy of The FP & would be up for a buddy read round June/July if anyone's interested! :)


Andrea AKA Catsos Person (catsosperson) | 157 comments I'm sorry, what is FP?

The Far Pavilions. :)


Andrea AKA Catsos Person (catsosperson) | 157 comments Oh! Thanks.

I got FP and MMK other books for half price at kobo.

Now that I have FP eBook, I'm trying to fit it in for classic bingo.

I have a copy somewhere, but since I'd be reading it in the heat of summer and you'd be reading it in winter... I'll have to see how tough I'm feeling!

Hi everyone. Could I push the FP read back to August?

As some of you know, I'm going to a Georgette Heyer Conference in August, so I'm trying to tidy up some group reads, a read for review then do some prep reading.

With this book being such a chunkster I think I need to push it back.

Ok by me - September would be even better!


Andrea AKA Catsos Person (catsosperson) | 157 comments August or September are ok with me for FP.

FP didn't make into classic bingo as I had hoped, but I'm still up for a b-r of this book.


Andrea AKA Catsos Person (catsosperson) | 157 comments So are we reading FP in August or in September?

I'm thinking about taking The FP to Aussie for my holiday, rather than the kindle. I'm away the 5th till the 15th of Aug but will have little to no internet. Or I could take another book with me & start on the 10th. Or I could take my Kindle & we could start the read on the 16th.

As you might gether, I'm pretty fluid! :D


Andrea AKA Catsos Person (catsosperson) | 157 comments Either the 10th or 16th works for me.

Let's make it the 16th. :) I'm taking a guide book & a book I'm hoping Jen Koestler will sign, so weight wise my Kindle will be easier than this chunkster! :)

I can't take the Heyer biography as my friend Chris left it in the rain & it would be too embarrassing to show it to the author like that! But I have a copy of Georgette Heyer's Regency World so I'm taking that along!

And I just asked you over on The Royal Escape discussion if you were going for a GH convention, which is what I remember, but, alas, alas, the memory is not as reliable as it used to be...

But I'm staring at it'spretty colour & I'm really keen! :)
