Again I apologise Ellen do you want me to change the edition on that post? or will the note above work?


message 25: by Suzanne (new)

Suzanne | 4268 comments You're doing great Marie! It's always hard seeing the edition when you do add book/author since that doesn't list page #s.

Or....a dark wizard hexxed the link and made it the wrong edition - I bet that is what happened!

"lying out" - I'm totally imagining Judith on her broom, in a really precarious out-stretched position trying to intercept the Bludger.

You won't take offence if I hope you don't quite make it?! ;-P

nope. Danielle read Pretty Poison 23 June. Talia was reading Posies & Poison. Danielle's book was 153 to Talia's 150.

Danielle, though, loves swinging at any free bludger!

Thanks Katie! As one of the mods who went through the last game gathering who did what, I’m sensitive to noticing the names. It’d be a nightmare trying to figure out who did what without it. ;)
