Hi Tricia,

May I claim 5 and 6 please? According to the MW they look available, and I couldn't see a request in the forum. :)

These really seem to strike home (no pun intended) with me.

Thanks,

Thanks! I'll listen later.

It'd probably give me a giant guilt complex, but we never had any children come our way. :lol:

Tricia,

Oh, well, I guess I might as well do it. May I claim 31,32 and 33? It may take a little while, but I have been hooked by this book.

Thanks,

Wayne

Ha ha! Absolutely, and thanks! You've got 2 full months to complete them - plenty of time (I hope)! ;)

And with that, I'm moving this to Readers Found!

P.S. I think I have a different program than most of the readers at LV. I will scan through the availables, find one that sounds interesting, and claim a section (or two or three). My goal is to get the one's I claim done in less than a week. I usually won't claim another reading until I have the first one done. I may select another one before I get the PLOK on the first. So, usually, when I say it will take a while, that usually means something is planned in my life that it may take up to a week. The next few days are going to be nice here so I have a lot of outside work to do so it may be a few days. :D

Thanks!

Sounds like a plan.

I typically don't claim in group projects until I figure I'll be recording soon, also. It's rare for a claim of mine to go more than 3 weeks, so I understand your program. ;)
