No can do

Dear fellow readers,

I'm sorry to have to tell you that I won't be reading Geraldine Brooks' book with you after all. I know I voted for it, but I must have overlooked the actual price before. I just checked my internet bookstore, and the book will cost me €36. That's $46.....yes, that's right: FORTY SIX DOLLARS.
As much as I like Brooks' writing, I am going to wait for the paperback..LOL!!!

Rats! I had hoped that you would be joining in for this one, but I can appreciate your decision not to pay that much for the read.

Our library has had me at number 22 on the list since I placed my name on it so I wound up ordering it from

I read In Lucia's Eyes, but finished it too early in order to get it back on time(the library sent that one to me right after I requested it) and didn't remember enough of the details to join in on the discussion questions.

Hopefully, we'll soon select a book that you will be able to join in on.

Margreet, if you are interested in reading this book, try The Book Depository. They have it in stock for 11 pounds 39 pence (no idea what that converts to) and they have free shipping as well, so I don't know how it will work out for you, but for me it is often cheaper to buy a book from them instead of from a bookstore here.

Here's the link
