The Newbies are Hard at Work

This week the new DIK ladies on the island all got together, via email, and did an old fashioned DIK Round Robin to pick the 6 books that they each would bring with them to the island. They were at a slight disadvantage because the locals already had a huge list of books that were already here and they couldn't bring any book that was already chosen...we need to grow our library, you know.

They slaved away with their lists. There was in-fighting like you wouldn't believe. They all wanted the same books it was a veritable blood bath. Ok, not really. They were civilized and contained and actually I don't think any of them pick the same book as another. It was wonderful...and they got it done in one day! I know, shocking!

So here are the fabulous results of the last edition of the DIK Book Tour. I'm sure when it's their turn for posting they'll be talking about their picks.

All the best to Little Alys's.

It was great fun to do the round robin yesterday and I am pretty astounded at the versitile literary interests amongst my fellow newbies and the DIK ladies in general. It is wonderful!

Thanks for your time instilling organization into our e-mail "marathon"! lol

Have a wonderful weekend everyone. :)

I have to say that was the most interesting email loop I've ever done in a 24 hour period! LOL
By the way I am Elizabeth (AKA MsMoonlight)- I don't think my real name is actually on DIK.

The Secret Pearl!! Sigh! One of my all time favorites. Recently, I reread it while at Cabo vacationing - as close to a desert island as I could get...

Renee said...

It surely was lots of fun, and given the very disparate time zones among us, it went incredibly smoothly!

I really enjoyed seeing everyone's picks! :-)

I miss my little Alys-mind! *sigh*

Whee! Some great books added to the library. Fun!

Amanda said...

Darn the time differences!!

But It was so much fun and reading everyone's post in between choosing!!

There are some great choices there!!

Thank you Tracy for all your help!

Wow! Thanks, Kris! I'm tickled that you enjoyed Caught Running so much.

Kris said...

It was certainly great fun to see what everyone chose to bring to the island, despite my being asleep for most of the time. As Amanda said, darn time differences. LOL.

Madeleine: "Caught Running" is a a huge fave of mine... obviously. ;) I figure there will be a few of us who will be fighting each other to read it next.
