OSB unavailable.. :(

Hi All,

I am having a hard time finding OSB, and I want to start reading with all of you SO BAD!! :(
It might be a bit hard for me, if we choose the books 2 weeks before we read, Amazon takes time to deliver to India! Can we try to choose next 2 months together so I can save some money (Shipping & Handling). I do get most books at the same time, but if they are not bestsellers I might have a harder time.
MArgreet did you get OSB? I know sometimes you have a hard time also.

I am sorry, Simrit, to hear that you are having difficulty getting your the book. Mine is supposed to be on its way from the library (our library has a great service of allowing one to order books online and then mailing them to you all free of charge).

I agree that it would be better if we choose books a little further in advance. Of course, this time we are just getting started so there wasn't time for much advance notice and still keep interest in the board.

I sure appreciate Bonnie setting this up for us!

Hi Simrit,

My book arrived in the mail today, I ordered it online sunday evening. My Dutch internet bookstore has most English books available on the 'mainland', I hardly ever need to wait for shipping overseas.

Knowing the selections more in advance is better, I agree with you and Shirley.

I have wonderful and exciting news: I AM MEETING GRANITA TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She is on her way to Italy, and makes a stop in HOlland so we can meet. We will meet in Groningen, and do the tourist thing, and eat ofcourse! I am so excited, this is soooo cool!!

Margreet, that's wonderful! And since Granita and I have met, we'll have only one degree of separation between you and me ... wow!

Simrit, I just joined here (although I've had the invite for awhile now, so that's my fault) I just ordered my book yesterday online at Amazon because I did a double take when I looked at the calendar....."yikes it's October already?!?!" So I might have to double up my chapters next week...that's ok I don't mind. Hopefully you get your book soon!

I have not received my book from amazon yet either. I hope it comes today.
I agree choosing books a bit in advance is a plus for all of us.
