Janice (jamasc) | 47191 comments Hi Amber. I'm glad that you are joining us. If you like, you can edit your first message to add the book titles to the list.

Riding the Bus with My Sister sounds like a very interesting read. I'll be interested in your comments.


message 4: by Judy (new)

Judy (patchworkcat) | 5760 comments Amber, look forward to what you read about Australia. One consideration would be In a Sunburned Country for a fun tour of the country or The Fatal Shore: The Epic of Australia's Founding for a serious but interesting journey. Glad you are part of the challenge!

I attempted editing when I found the titles last night and it kept booting them to the end of my list, so I gave up and started a new message. After recently reading The Story of Beautiful Girl I added Riding the Bus with My Sister: A True Life Journey to my TBR list. It was a happpy coincidence to find it in the 1980 list!

Thanks for the suggestions!

Amber Ok, again, I cannot get this thing to let me edit the way I want it to.

Month 2: Topaz Little Bee


message 8: by Judy (new)

Judy (patchworkcat) | 5760 comments Amber, it automatically boots the title to the end of the message, you aren't doing anything wrong. What you can do is cut and paste the title where you want it. You can cut or paste by right clicking to bring up the menu that lists both commands. Good luck!

Little Beelooks great - I have it on my TBR, too.

Yes, that can be frustrating. It would be nice if the book was added where the cursor sits, but no such luck. One has to go to the fuss of copying and pasting it. You could also manually type the link in HTML (see "some html is ok") at the top of the comment box.

type in [!book:Little Bee] leaving out the ! and it works like a charm.


message 11: by Alison (new)

Alison Forde | 269 comments Im also a November person - Little Bee looks good, I'm wondering where the Topaz connection is - is it a character's name?


message 12: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 47191 comments Perhaps it's the colour of the cover.


message 13: by Kate (new)

Kate Z (kgordon3) | 144 comments I'm interested in the connection between Little Bee and topaz. I liked Little Bee a lot. Great House on the other hand ... (and, for the record, I LOVED History of Love)


message 14: by Alison (new)

Alison Forde | 269 comments I just realised Little Bee is also published as "the other hand - so I've already read it. the hunt for topanz goes on!


message 15: by Cheryl (new)

Cheryl (cherylllr) Just gotta plug another book for Australia. Last year I loved Tracks, a memoir about a young woman who, to oversimplify, feels a restless urge to challenge herself to cross the outback, alone. I'd be choosing that country too if I hadn't already read so many books from/about there.


message 16: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 47191 comments There are lots of titles with Topaz in them here: http://www.goodreads.com/search?query...

I think it is published as 'The other Hand' in the UK and 'Little Bee' in the states, I was in JFK last year, waiting for my delayed plane and actually reading The other Hand, when I realised that the Bookshop near to me in the airport had a copy of Little Bee on display.

Amber Sorry guys. I was in Chicago for a long weekend and played hookie from the world. :)

Thanks for the tip on the copying and pasting of the book titles I'm attempting to insert into my list. It worked like a charm!

Yes, I chose Little Bee because of the color of the cover. Just so happens that it's been on my TBR list for-ev-er, so that worked quite nicely.
