Christine, it should be arriving this week!
I can't believe that I sent this book out May 22, 2009, and it is still lingering out there, traveling around. I get so excited when I know it's headed to the next person, but then nervous that this is going to be the time it gets lost in the mail! I would be so sad. It's been all over the world, in the hands of many wonderful ladies. But I know it'll be fine. It'll make its way back to me in a much loved, and well-read condition! :)
It was this passage from the afterward that made me think it would be a wonderful idea to send this book out on a journey to my book-loving friends...
"...Its members are spread all over the world, but they are joined by their love of books, of talking about books, and of their fellow readers. We are transformed-magically-into the literary society each time we pass a book along, each time we ask a question about it, each time we say, "If you liked that, I bet you'd like this." Whenever we are willing to be delighted and share our delight, as Mary Ann did, we are part of the ongoing story of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society."
Thank you all so much for participating!
