I was going through all my emails received from LibraryThing and realized I had received a post stating that I had been selected for Ethan and the web of lies by Dan Ryan from Member Giveaway in December and was wondering what the status of this book is?

Can I expect to receive this book or not?

I received a post stated that I was selected for The Luddite Girls and The Year of Compulsory Childbirth and was wondering where they were. Thanks for the help.
I received a post stating that I had been selected for Ethan and the web of lies by Dan Ryan from Member Giveaway in August and was wondering what the status of this book is? Any information would help, thank you!
I was informed by Sonya Green on August 24th that I had been selected to receive a copy of 'The Year of Compulsory Childbirth', and I have been anticipating a good read... Unfortunately, I haven't received it yet, and, even taking into account the shipping delays, I'm a bit worried. Could you tell me whether it has been mailed or not? Thanks.
I was chosen to receive Ethan and the Web of Lies by Dan Ryan from you, back in August. I am wondering if you could tell me if it has been mailed, as I have not received it yet. Thanks!
Hi, I was notified that I was supposed to receive a copy of The Year of Compulsary Childbirth and have not yet received it. Hopefully it hasn't gotten lost in the mail.
Hi, I was notified that I was to receive Ethan and the Web of Lies by Dan Ryan from you ..... but I'm still waiing. Help!!!!

I was notified on August 24 that I had won a copy of 'The Luddite Girls'. I haven't received a copy yet and was wondering if it is a eBook or hard copy and when I might receive it? I'm looking forward to reviewing it.
I haven't received a copy of the ebook 'The Luddite Girls', either. I have carefully checked my inbox for the last month or two. The only other thing I can think of is that it possibly went to a spam folder...but without knowing what email address it is coming from, it is impossible to prevent that. Would you possibly be able to resend me a copy, and I will check both inbox and spam folders daily? Or if anyone else who has it can forward it, that would be great. My address is
Oh, also....The Luddite Girls by Karen Dee and The Year of Compulsory Childbirth by Nigel Farringdon.

I was chosen by LibaryThing to receive Ethan and the Web of Lies by Dan Ryan from you, but have yet to get it...that was on 8/24. Please advise as I am purging my list of books to review.

Thank you,
Kathy Austin

I won a copy of the Luddite Girls and also the Year of Compulsory Childbirth but have not received either yet...I was wondering whether they were e-books or hard copy books and also when I may receive them.

Kind regards

Hi. I won a copy of "The Year of Compulsory Chidbirth" and was just wondering if the book you are going to send me is a physical book or an e-book. Thank you very much and I can't wait to review it for you!
I can't wait to read your book!
Hi there! I'm sorry, I did receive it. This has just been a crazy month and I haven't had a chance to review or read much. I have just moved into a new house and things are still being unpacked. But worry not, I will be getting to my LibraryThing stuff by the end of this month hopefully.
Solid, authentic, robust, traditional, solid food - a man's choice but that is what it was - I suspect his mother might have thought twice about chicken soup with a chicken main and on reflection I am not sure about the fish as well in a more or less everyday meal - I would need to research a bit.
I can't recall if the frois gras went with the filet mignon but that would be someone trying to show off and spend a lot of money and again a man's choice, but plausable enough in a restaurent trying to do posh French (a touch old fashioned).
Btw if it was a man eating the lettuce concoction he would be moaning about having to go on a diet and how all this low carb stuff was getting tiresome and he really fancied a Macdonalds or some such.
best wishes
They actually try and sell that stuff! Some of the menu must be targeted at a very narrow group, ultra health freaks, stick thin, plastic surgeoned old woman spings to mind.But then again it is LA but still bleagh.
I may not be that keen onyour book or any book of this genre but it is better than averrage and should do well.
Best wishes
Yes, I did. Thank you. Feel free to check back in awhile if I haven't posted the review yet.

Hi, thanks for the update. I have received the book now and will start reading it tomorrow. It looks really interesting!

Thank You
Hi, David: Just to let you know I received your book today through the post. I have started to read it today and will finish it in three week's time. Please expect my review by the beginning or middle of July as I need time to read and abosorve the book. I am an avid reader but do like to take my time and do research into each book I'm reading to enjoy and totally acess the book.

Thank you for the opportunity for reading and reviewing your book. I am looking forward to review it.

Mrs Mary Aris

Facetious will get you nowhere, my friend. I've read on line which isn't easy or efficient so you'll need to be in print to make me happy. Galley proofs or real book, whatever works for you.
PS do you need my home address? esta
Thank you. I am now officially your friend, esta
(that's "not quite sure why" on Facebook aversion.
Being your friend. . . please define! I am a friendly old lady but draw the line at Facebook (not quite sure, but took that stance long ago and continue it). I'd be glad to read your book-in-progress if I could be of assistance (or get an autographed copy after it's done.) Meanwhile. Thanks for asking. Esta
