Owlish Roundabout (international). Owl adresses sent

There is a long tradition connecting owls with books and literature, so I'd like to suggest something like an international owl-themed book-chain:
Every participant is expected to send a book plus a little owl-themed gift like a bookmark, fridge magnet, stationary etc. - and, as this should be a roundabout, everyone will get a package, too!

If you would like to participate, please
- Post here by October 15th to enter.
- PM me with your mailing details and please put "Owlish Roundabout" in the subject line of your PM.
- You should be prepared to post internationally. If you tell me so, I can try to find you an address on the same continent, but that, of course, depends on the variety of entries and can't be granted for sure.
- On October 16th (hopefully) everyone will get an address. As this is a chain, you won't get the address of the participant that will send a book to you.
- The book should have an owl in the title, on the cover or in the story, or, as owls prefer flying in the night, words like darkness, night etc. in the title or a nice nightly scene on the cover.
- Everyone is expected to send their packages within the following three weeks.
- Please keep it a secret what you are going to send and to whom.
- When your own owl arrives, please let us know what you have received, so we can all share the fun.
- If you like the idea, there could be another owlish roundabout towards the end of this or at the beginning of next year.

PLEASE NOTE:
As I've never hosted something like that before - if I have left out something essential, please feel free to tell me so!

your address is still missing.
Profile Image
Sorry, I don't know why it's not got to you, I will PM you again now :-)
Profile Image
Sometimes my messages don't get through, sometimes I don't get all messages. And very often I don't get into my e-mail account. My hardware is not exactly the latest model, so it's not your fault...

Will send your owls later this evening... ;-)

... with the destination for their owls.
If you didn't receive an address, please tell me so.
(there's allways the possibility the pm got swallowed by the big black mail- sucking hole...)
Profile Image
thank you!
Profile Image
Danke :)

... and my owl flew away .....
Profile Image
Thanks for all the owl things you included. I appreciate everything. I am only sad that I cannot read German and cannot read the beautiful booklet about your city.
Profile Image
Another had come home to roost!

Thank you, Southernfryed! For the book 'Sugar Cage" by Connie May Fowler. It has a crane flying on the front. There's an owl pencil sharpener, owl note cards, a post card with an owl in a tree, and two owl Christmas ornaments for my collection! What a wonderful surprise!!!! I can't believe it got here so fast! Thanks again!

P.S. When I journaled the book I saw that...OWL is embedded in the authors name. Dummy me!!! How clever!

My owl just left its perch. ;-)

The OWL Service by Alan Garner is the perfect book for this exchange. It arrived with some very pretty Japanese OWL stationery. Thanks so much, mcsar!
Profile Image
This owl flew quickly. I am glad you like them. I have to say I think it is the perfect book as well. Enjoy 8)

made their way over the ocean :-)

One was sitting of the parcel, the next on the tree of the book cover http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14763166 (BLACK cherry blues). I think it was living there for a while ;-)

I also found the nicest owlish writing cards ever accompained by a pen. So I can start writing quite now. But I must tell you that I can't resist the owls' eggs (an Oreo egg and some M& Ms) :-(
So no more owls, but a large package of Earl Gray tea and great BC plates.

Thanks again for your thoughtful gift. You realy made my day!

... came flying today - on the wings of Hermes.
Thanks to Princess-Rainbow for the book "Zwischen Flucht und Anpassung", a book about the relationship between animals and mankind, with a barn owl on the cover.
Along with the book came a cute owlish bookmark made of felt and three colourful bookmarks with helpful advice ;-). And there were wonderful stickers with ice crystals and "fluttery" owls. Thanks also for the yummy Lindt chocolate and the tea - and your kind note - on an owlish greeting card.
What a delightful surprise!

I´m glad that you liked everything that I´ve chosen for you.

for your unbelievable generous parcel. Here is a photo of my owls:
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14787718

In the parcel were:
- a book about owls filled with beautiful photos
- a wall calendar with great photos (the last week I thought about buying a calendar ;-) I already know where to put it)
- a colorful shopping bag
- cute owl-felt stickers (I´ll give them to my pupils as reward)
- and last but not least a very nice note

You made me so happy! Thank you once more for everything you´ve chosen.

... I'd like to thank all of you: You have made this roundabout such a wonderful experience! I'd never have thought it would be such fun! Thanks again and enjoy your owlish books and gifts! ( I certainly will... ;-))
