Hi there

I'm very keen to read a M M Kaye book in July. I've put a poll up for the two titles I own - Death in Zanzibar & a children's book, The Ordinary Princess. If you would like to join me, please cast your vote! :)

& Death in Zanzibar was the clear winner.

Would starting the read on the 15th of July suit everyone?


Andrea AKA Catsos Person (catsosperson) | 157 comments I thought "The Scent of Water" was the July selection.

Or is it a buddy read rather than a group read?

I made a mistake when I put it up, sorry. SoW is June.

Kim Kaso | 96 comments Rats, I missed this poll. Wanted to give The Ordinary Princess a vote just so it was sitting @ zero.


message 8: by Karlyne (new)

Karlyne Landrum | 1906 comments I actually forgot to vote! I would have voted for Ordinary Princess, too, Kim, just so I'd have to find a copy (mine got lost years ago).

Katy (kathy_h) | 126 comments I was out of town and missed the poll too -- bummer. Maybe there are enough of us that would like to buddy read The Ordinary Princess?

Always possible! :)

I'm going to Rarotonga (Cook Islands) on holiday next week, but you can talk it over with the other moderators. :)

I'll list the read for Death in Zanzibar for the 15th of July.

I'd be happy to set up a thread or two for a buddy read of The Ordinary Princess. Anyone besides Katy and Karlyne interested? It's a lovely little fairy tale.

I'd like to but I'd be pushed to get it read in July.

I'll read whenever is convenient for Karlyne or whoever else might be interested.

Aww! I wish I had a copy; I'd join you. It's a quick, cute read, and Kaye's illustrations are lovely.

I'm going to defer my read till about the 12th - just in case someone is interested with a later date.
