I whined in another thread about requesting a book by her and it going to 5 members before it was accepted, basically taking the entire month of December.  I requested another one and it was initially accepted but now it's been cancelled by the member, now on to member #2.   Maybe these are signs I need to stop asking for JG books?

What are you looking for?  I've got one on my shelf.

I was requesting "The Gift" and "The Wedding".  I checked out your shelf and have read the one you have (I really liked it, too). It's just been trying to get these two that have given me fits.

I have THE WEDDING.  If you request it today, I'll mail it tomorrow. (PM me...I may not see your reply here in time)

I had the same trouble with ODD THOMAS by Dean Koontz.  I think I requested it for two solid weeks before I finally gave up.  It just wasn't meant to be. lol

I had a hard time with Beware of Virtuous Women by Kasey Michaels. Event though it was plentiful in the system.  I finally got it by posting i the book bazaar.  Of course that was months ago and I still haven't read it yet.

I am cursed.  I just discovered I already have "The Wedding", but with a different cover.  I am such a moron!

Don't you hate that different cover thing!! My husband made me start carrying a list of of my books to sales because I ended up with so many dupes by not recognizing the cover.

Maybe you're not cursed, just the opposite, an unseen force wasn't letting you order the book because you already had it. Better check the other one too :)

LOL Don't give up on Garwood. Her romances are worth the trouble.

I just posted in another topic how I can't get a hard copy of Jennifer Cruisies 'don't look down'  The post office has eaten two of them, assuming they were mailed, which I think they were.

It could be a curse ..................
