Product Description

Denny O'Callaghan is afraid to open his eyes.

He'd been out drinking last night with the guys, and his head throbs, his arms hurt, and he can't remember what he's done.

He opens his eyes. Blood. On his sheets. His pillowcase.

Then he gets a call: his ex-wife was murdered last night.

He desperately tries to piece together what happened. But he can't explain how he got the scratches on his arms, the police want to know about the domestic violence report his ex filed against him, and his buddies say he was raging against her last night before he stormed off on his own.

Right about the time she was murdered.

Take advantage of this introductory low price!

The Gifting Library Chat Thread ....
« on: December 07, 2014, 02:02:52 PM »
As I mentioned, I thought it would be easier to list participants in one thread and chit chat in another so people don't get lost in the shuffle of conversation  ... well, and because I'm easily confused. 

So, this is here just to let you talk about whatever you want about our new game .... :)

Pretty much.   We've been discussing in the Moderator cave and we think that this will be nicer with few rules for when and whom.   If you see a gift you wish to give, then whenever you choose is the proper time.   :D

For some weird reason when I look at the lists from my phone, almost all the books show as not able to gift at this time. Is this a setting on my end? Do I need to go to the full site not mobile?

It looks like that is the case.  When I go to the mobile page for the lists, it won't let me gift either.  I have to use the full site.

Also, can someone take a look at my list for me and make sure that it is one page only?  I have an old browser here at work and sometimes the list is showing as one page and sometimes it is showing as two...like it can't make up its mind.  It is 25 items, I'm pretty sure.

It's one page on my computer.

On the amazon mobile version, it's 2 pages .... but it is one page on the real amazon.   

It's a little stupid.  I couldn't figure out how to remember your wishlist from the mobile version, but once I remembered you on my laptop, it was easy to go to the full page amazon site, pull up your wishlist and then I would  be able to buy you a book on my phone.   Too bad their mobile version is old-fashioned.  I didn't think about that since I rarely use it.

Geoffrey, do I need to shorten the list so it is just one page for mobile as well?  I can if needed.

I wish Amazon would allow you to thank the giver. I'm a member of Americangreetings and when you send someone a card it gives the person a chance to send a thank  you back.

When I get an email gift card, I have an opportunity to thank the sender. ???

On the books, there isn't a thank you option.  :(   The Giver does receive a confirmation email that their gift was received so you know they've gotten it.  So, that's good.

Also another thing to note--when I gift a book, it doesn't use my gift certificate--it requires other payment (Unless I am a goober again and doing it wrong.  Entirely possible).   I think my list is one page, but don't have a mobile device to check on that.  If someone notices it as too long, just let me know! 

It is really fun seeing what is in the wishlists!!!

For me, it shows up like it's charging my credit card, but then the charge actually hits my gift certificate when I look at the receipt .... I'm not sure why they only show the 1-click card, but they do ...  Trying to confuse us ....

You can use the chat thread to thank your anonymous secret santa.  And if they want to out themselves they may - - - but don't have to. :)

Note that I'm picking a future date for my deliveries, so you can all wait anxiously awhile to see what may show up in your virtual stocking as we get closer to 12/25. :)

I thought about doing that.  Picking a bunch of books and them having them all show up on some random future date .....

That's cool, NogDog...

Yes, a reminder to folks, you can change the name on the email so that your "real name" (which may or may not match up with your KBoards username anyway) is not on the email.

i can't see a way to take your name off your wish list, so i'm opting out of putting one up.  but that's not to say i might not be randomly gifting things to people....

oh, and btw, may i remind folks that not everyone on KB celebrates Christmas, so you might want to think about sending books from December 17th on.  Or whatever day Festivus is.  Or on December 26th for Kwanzaa.
