I recently had a bookbox to send and thought I would use this to find out the address of the next bookcrosser. It would be mini surprise because they had signed up for it months previously :)

They weren't on the contact list though, or RABCK.com :( Going to try it with the next one I send out, and the next etc etc

It's a small list which I intend to update should more people join in.
If similar themed threads arise I will add more links too.
Great to see the work on RABCK.com is progressing.
Profile Image
Now we are in the New Year who knows what changes may be afoot. Don't forget to let your "buddy" know of any address changes this year.

Here's hoping 2015 brings you all many pleasant surprises from bookcrossing friends :)

I would like to be apart of this list & host someone's details. Surprises are always nice instead of having to clue in the person by asking for their address!

I just happened to see it last night by pure luck. Yay! Guess I hadn't been checking this forum in a while. Glad 2 b buddies.

If you have a Bookcrosser who holds your address and you have given them permission to pass on your details to other bookcrossers wanting to surprise you then just give me their BC name and I will update the list.

If not maybe Izzy5000 can buddy up with you and you can swap addresses. Let me know either on here or by PM and I will update the list as soon as I can.
Profile Image

I'll join!

I don't mind who my buddy is. Maybe Raluk68 or H177 ?

Bascula is after a buddy - if you are both happy to swap addresses please exchange PMs with each other and let me know by PM or on here.

Or you can have Raluk68 or H177 as your address holders. Please let them know by PM , incase they are inundated with requests :) , and then drop me a PM and I will update the list to show who your buddies are.

Profile Image
Izzy5000 and I are holding each others addresses. We have already exchanged PMs, so you can add us to the list. Thanks!

plenty room for more :o)

I would be more than willing to keep an updated list of any addresses if bookcrossers want to send them to me. That way all addresses would be in one place. Just pm me and I will happily compile a file folder here since I am at home 95% of the time with not much to do. Just an idea for those who are interested.
Profile Image
Thank you queenfrog.

I might be asking you to hold an address or two if we have any more interest in the future as well :)
Profile Image
Not a problem as I am always on my computer lol
Profile Image
On a word doc on my computer, it may need updated.
i have two word doc for this USA\CANADA and one for everywhere else
Profile Image
To everyone who has already given their address to rubyrebel for sending out let me know either on here or by PM. I will then add your bookcrossing name to this thread so others know to contact rubyrebel when they want to surprise you.

If you have had a change of address let rubyrebel know that too.
Profile Image

Change

On the list here I am listed as Samoa still.
Can you please change this to reflect my most recent update to you.
Cheers :)

Ah missed that!
All done :)

A lot of bookcrossers are using this thread to ask for addresses so they can surprise people or pass on a book ring/ray book.

However we have not had any new additions to the list recently. Come join us! Especially those who have already passed on their details to Rubyrebel to give out, so far we are only aware about one of you.

All we need is your BC name and the BC name of your chosen address holder.

To be added to the list either respond to this post or PM me the details.
Profile Image
then seemed to forget about it! I will have to search for a buddy to hold my address!

Great get them to join in too, if you can, and you hold theirs :)

If you have any difficulty finding a willing BCer let me know. There are at least three BCers who have mentioned they would hold addresses for others for this thread.
Profile Image
Did you choose an address buddy Nataliec7?

You seem to have had a couple of offers :)
Profile Image
I would be thrilled to be the keep of your address, will you be the keeper of mine?

a little bird told me that J4shaw had added a link to me for contacting to get her address.

What a really good idea, so good I've pinched it!

My profile page now includes the following info:

For anyone wanting to send me something as a surprise, please contact <a href="http://www.bookcrossing.com/mybookshelf/BeckyLizz/"> BeckyLizz</a> or <a href="http://www.bookcrossing.com/mybookshelf/whiskeyjane/"> Whiskeyjane </a> who both hold my address to issue to other Bookcrossers.

(ETA - the coding doesn't work here but will on your profile)

I have also mentioned this thread - trying to spread the word!

I feel like I've been given a "Well done" gold star sticker! ;)

Here is the html code for what is on my profile.

For anyone wanting to send me something as a surprise, please contact <a href=http://www.bookcrossing.com/sendmessage/Diane-Fraser/> <font color="blue"> <b>Diane-Fraser</b> </a> <font color="red"> who holds my address at all times.

You need to change the first link in the code to match your own address buddy

Sharing the HTML coding that I posted 2 years ago in the main thread, for anyone who wants to add it to their profile page as I have done.
If you want any help tailoring it, please just shoot me a PM.

Nataliec7 and Herchelle are address buddies and added to the list.

J4shaw - GOLD star!! Tee hee!

Bump!


New address buddies welcome. Just shout and someone will pair up with you.

Bumping

for all those newbies and returners to bookcrossing I have seen on the forums this month to consider joining us.

Also nice to see that the new site for RABCK.com is getting nearer to being finished :)
Profile Image
Still no sign of RABCK.com :(

Here is an alternative way to surprise others.

Don't forget we may want to surprise you too - buddy up and join in.
Profile Image
I found this thread lurking on PAGE 4!!! I have updated it due to one of our members moving.

When Plum-Crazy and I first discussed this idea we agreed if the thread should become unmanageable we would split the alphabet and work it between us. Almost a year later I am still finding it manageable.

Does anyone out there have any ideas on how to get more bookcrossers involved in address holding, buddying up or whatever you would like to call it?

Any idea be it small, large, sensible, daft etc will be considered. I can't make any promises it will be carried out however those I am able to fulfill I will do so.

It would be nice to keep this thread on page one for at least at week or two this month - so post your ideas here or drop me a PM.

Anyone up for the challenge ;-)


ETA 8/11/15 - Been on Page 1 for almost 4 days, still no ideas or new entrants though - I have an Idea to change the title post next year to try and make it stand out more, especially to those using the forums for the first time. Now just got to think what to call it!!! :)

Thank you for doing this

left to enter the RABCK http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/525698 I am doing a supply stores order during the week so will make the draw prior to that.

I have PM'd some of you with the details of the RABCK, however not all of you have entered - hope the PMs are getting through ok.

Plum-Crazy and linquistkris I haven't sent you a PM - as you have both been active on here recently you get an entry by default :))

We have not long since had a reminder about keeping your buddy updated.
Don't forget to let them know if you change address this year :0)

I just now noticed this post....

Just let me know if interested.....

I would be glad to be your address buddy.

I have removed queenfrog from the list, for now, as she is about to move. Once I have new details I'll add her back on.

Don't forget, as well as contacting your address buddy with changes let me know if any have to be made to the list.
Profile Image
If you haven't already done so, try PMing Rubyrebel she holds addresses that people were happy for her to give out whilst RABCK was down.

Unfortunately raluk68 hasn't come forward for this or RABCK.com :(
Profile Image
i'm sorry but i don't have raluk68's address
Profile Image
Just keeping in view :)



ETA updated list today too with new joiner Chremajora. Welcome!
Profile Image
queenfrog is back on the list :)

I now hold her address details and she will also be updating RABCK.com
Profile Image
I have just seen in the forum they need donations to keep it running. Hope the suspension is lifted soon. Meanwhile don't forget this manual system we have going.

Anyone wishing to join just let me know. I hold a few addresses, will take more and we have quite a few vounteers to hold addresses if you don't have an immediate address buddy to hand :)
Profile Image
stored on my computer in case rabck site would go down again
Profile Image
It didn't stay down long this time.

Not everyone likes to keep their address details on the Internet and, as we have seen, RABCK.com is not always there when we need it.

The manual systems are a slower alternative to use, however just as effective for surprising your bookcrossing friends.

Please remember to update your address buddy with any changes of address and also if you are on rubyrebel's list PM her your changes too. Oh and the same goes for RABCK.com - any changes update. I'm NOT moving - too many things to remember ;-)
Profile Image
today I removed BigJohnLefty's name from the list

:'(
Profile Image
Just tried looking for someone's address (who isn't in our buddy scheme) and got a 503 error.

Hope it's a temporary blip, though it would be nice if we got some more joining in with our thread.

Anyone out there wanting to join - let me know :)

Profile Image
I was talking to a fellow bookcrosser last night and she loves to surprise people with her books and mentioned how she had found it useful that someone had added to their profile who their address buddy was.

So if you haven't done so already update your profiles!


If you are unsure what I mean by this check out my profile and if you need any advice on how to do it PM me.

Oh and mention this thread when you get the chance at any bookcrossing meets. I am :)

I recently had a bookbox to send and thought I would use this to find out the address of the next bookcrosser. It would be mini surprise because they had signed up for it months previously :)

They weren't on the contact list though, or RABCK.com :( Going to try it with the next one I send out, and the next etc etc
Profile Image
As I heard RABCK.com is down again. Hope it is temporary.

Also I will be sending reminders by PM to those who have asked people to be their address buddy on this thread, over the next few weeks. I'll ask you to contact your address buddy with any changes you may have forgotten to send on. (Just in case anyone was thinking of sending a little holiday surprise out).

I may even try and think up another RABCK draw just so I can use our address buddy system myself :-)
