Love the pic & the handsome guy delivering isn't bad either!!!! He has such a cool smile.
My guy was in preparing for the sprints in the olympics I think because he was so quick I ran to the door & he sprang from the porch in a split second; all I saw was a blurr r r.....
Susan, Thanks Pen for The Great Picture...
Your Crystal Ball image showed up here. UPS took a minute to smile, but then back to business delivering books.

Mine just arrived! I'm in AZ for those of you who are tracking across the country...
Eager to get started. I checked one of the authors' earlier books "Box 21" out of the library last week to get a preview of what to expect. Some pretty brutal scenes that I wouldn't want to read during breakfast, but an engrossing story with a sad twist just when you think it's all been solved. It did win some Swedish awards back in 2005. "21" was concerned with the sex slave trade coming out of Eastern Europe, a very ugly reality that seems to have spread widely and only increased in brutality over the past decade. Or maybe we just hear more about it now.
I love a good police work novel so I'm off to check the schedule and see how far I should read - in the unlikely event that I'm able to stop at all ;-)

I just got the book! I'm so excited to get started; I hope I can stick to the schedule and not over read it. Looking forward to discussions about it.

Thanks for the answers. That is what I do as well. I get pretty competitive about seeing those numbers posted when I have not read in a day or two . . .it is getting addictive & I have school work, yet I will log on just to try and keep up with all the posting comments and discussions.
I was trying out a few different methods of reading the post recently. I sorted the messages differently and wanted to know what others do to make the experience easy as possible- because I am certain we all don't have 'unlimited free time' abound. At least I don't
you said : Hope that answers your question!

I like the 29th too, Darby.
I thought the schedule stated that we started sharing on the 24th?! I like the date of the 29th better though!!!
