    Lots of good reading in your great magazine , can’t wait to read it all . I’ve an idea, ( I know a dangerous pastime) but here goes. What’s your oppinion of choosing a book and serialising it in your monthly magazine ? Your magazine I find is brilliant but your magazine teases us with some lovely books which I couldn’t get round to reading them all.

      Hi Lynne,
      It’s a great idea but I can’t think of a way of doing it with the fact that we have new members joining and also with compensating an author for the use of their book. I think we could do a short story section so there is fiction and it starts and ends in one magazine. I’m not sure.

      Thanks for the feedback, Lynne.

      Best Wishes,
