LittleWhiteBird's German language bookbox within USA

After a few people have shown interest (here: http://www.bookcrossing.com/forum/20/427185), I'm starting my German language bookbox in the USA. It'll be a US only bookbox so postage won't get too high.

There are a few rules:

1. Journal all books that you take out of the box.
2. Add the same number of books that you remove from the box.
3. Only German language books, please.
4. There should be no more than two books of the same genre/theme in the box at the same time. E.g. not more than 2 mystery novels, not more than 2 plays, not more than 2 non-fiction books about historical issues, etc.
4. Post in this thread when you receive and send the box so that I can track it. If you could list which books are you taking and which ones you are putting in, I would appreciate it. Like seeing what happens between I send the box and when I get it back.
5. When it's your turn, PM the next person in line for their address. Try to keep the bookbox for no longer than 2 weeks.
5. If the box is starting to show signs of wear, please replace it
6. You can ship Media Mail, which should keep postage low.
7. Box returns to me at the end.
8. If there are any questions or troubles, please send me a PM.

I intended to send it yesterday but (and I feel so silly) here's what happened: the box was quite beat up, so I grabbed a box from my basement that was about the same size. I packed the books and taped up the box and brought it to the post office. Well...it turns out the box had originally contained bottles of wine and the tape wasn't covering enough of the printing. The Post Office couldn't accept it that way, because they only had my word that it contained books instead of wine bottles (I am so used to hearing "anything liquid, fragile, perishable or potentially hazardous?" regarding the contents that I never thought about the actual packaging!). Anyway, so it finally went out today with several layers of brown tape in the strategic locations :-).

Got it!

Ah. That explains the tape :), I will be shipping it out soon :)
Profile Image
Glad it arrived safe and sound and in a reasonable amount of time! The tape *does* look a bit ridiculous, don't you think? ;-)
Profile Image
I had trouble with the printing on a box once as well!

On the other hand, about two months ago, I shipped a TiVo in its original box, they asked if that was what was really in there and I said yes. When I assured them I had also used additional bubble wrap to package it safely, they were satisfied :)

It hasn't arrived here yet.
