Just in case anyone forgot...  8)
The Affinity release (on Amazon) is in 6 days!


Hi Milli!  :)

Yep, I'm very excited!  I'm going to order one as soon as possible.  I'm going away on a business trip at the end of the month and then I'm going to my folks spread place near Chicago for a while around Labor Day.  So, I may postpone ordering it slightly until I get back from all of that.  I wouldn't want my Amazon box to sit forlorn in my apartment building's vestibule for too long.  But, I'm super excited to see Affinity!

It will be fun to discuss it together here. 8)

And, yes, how are you liking Tipping the Velvet, Lee?

I've been distracted by all that the Rocky Mountains offer in summer and haven't been reading much lately. But I am enjoying the part about the protagonist's first big crush on the music hall singer, Kitty Bolder.

May 2019 be better for us all.

Amanda ~ I'm gonna place my Affinity order today or tomorrow.  I'm super excited too!  8)
You know what we should do?  We could set a viewing date so that we can discuss it here after watching it.


Lee ~ Great to hear you are enjoying it so far!  Looking forward to hearing your impressions later.
Btw... and the music hall singer is Kitty Butler.   ;)

I'll remember that by thinking of her as the narrator's Rhett!! Right now, I'm reading about the impending visit of Kitty to the familiy abode.

One thing that seems odd is that Kitty has just received a visit from a stranger for the first time since the two have met. A music hall star with no visitors or friends at all?? Strange...but I suppose the explanation will come in due time.

Hi Milli!

I'm here to report that I just ordered my copy of Affinity.  If all goes well, based on the shipping method I chose, I hope I will have it by Monday or Tuesday.  I'm excited!

Yay!  Well, if all goes well, maybe we can schedule our coordinated viewing for Tuesday or Wednesday next week.  It sounds like lots of fun!  Do you want to be on BetterMost as we watch it and post our reactions during the viewing?  Or, should we just plan to come onto BetterMost and discuss is right after we both finish watching?
