[CLOSED] Audiobook VBB (US only) - Round 24 starts January 1 - New Players Always Welcome!

I am starting a VBB for Audiobooks. Both CDs & cassettes are welcome, just be sure to let me know which your book is. I have never done a VBB before but I think we can make this work & have some fun in the process.

Here are the rules to play by:

If you would like to join, just post here to let me know, and you will be added to the list. I am asking that each member contribute 2 seed books to help get this started with good diversity on the list.

This is a US-only audiobook virtual bookbox (VBB).

When it is your turn, I will PM the list of available books to you. You will have 5 days to make your selections from the list. Once you have selected your books, come back & post on this forum thread which books you are taking and which ones you are adding to the "box". Also PM me with that info as well. In the PM to me, please include links for the books you are adding. Also please let me know if they are CDs or cassettes, & if they are abridged or unabridged & the number of CDS or cassettes in each book. Here's an example of how I'll be formatting the list:

Book Title by Author's Name (abridged - 2 cassettes) (iwillrejoice)
link pasted here


You may take as many books as you like and replace them with the same number, or more.

If you choose CD books, please replace them with other CD books. If you choose books on cassette, then you can replace those with either CDs or cassettes.

You then PM the person holding the books you have selected and they send those books to you. Please ship your books within 2 weeks.

The list then gets updated with the changes and moves to the next person who takes their turn. At the end of the round, we can see if we want to go again.

All books must be registered at BookCrossing and a link provided to the journal entry. And please, journal your books as soon as you receive them.

Thanks!

(As is probably obvious, I have shamelessly lifted these rules from one of my favorite VBBs, bookstogive's Mystery/Thriller VBB. Any mistakes or additions are mine.)

BigJohnLefty, I've got you down. Thanks.

I have several audiobooks I have been waiting to put in a book box. I assume cassettes would be OK, as well as CDs, as long as we indicate that a certain book is on cassettes?

Yes. cassettes are fine. Just indicate cassettes or CD on your book. Thanks!
Profile Image
And thanks for the good early notice. By January I should have a good selection .

I'm in Minnesota, and happy to ship to Canada.
Profile Image
OK, great! Thanks for joining. :-)
Profile Image

bump

Anyone else?
Profile Image

I'm in!

I've got both CDs and cassettes ready to trade. I'm an avid audiobook listener so I'm glad you are starting this up. I can ship anywhere. :-)
Profile Image
Okay! I think that the 6 of us can make a go of this. I'll leave it open for sign-ups as we go along.

I have a bunch of "unread" audiobooks that I need to listen to, so this will be a great motivator for me. But I wonder if you all would be able to contribute an audiobook or two as a seed, to give us greater diversity in our starting list? If you absolutely can't, that's OK. I know that there have been times I didn't join a VBB because I didn't have both the required seed books, plus books to trade. But if you can contribute even 1 or 2 to get us started, that would be much appreciated. Just PM me with the titles, whether they're CDs or cassettes, & their BCIDs. Thanks!

::off to start listening to some books!::
Profile Image
I have quite a few ready.
Profile Image
Got you down, booklady331. Thanks for joining!
Profile Image
I just PM'd you my two seed books, and I also have some ideas you might want to consider. First, do you want to ask people to contribute roughly as many CDs or cassettes as they take? For me, that's not an issue, but others may feel strongly about it.

Second, I'm very interested in knowing (a) whether a book is unabridged or not, and (b) who the reader is. So I'm hoping people will put that in their journal entries.
Profile Image
Good thoughts, JudySlump612. Thanks.

Well, I've noticed in the bookboxes & VBBs I've been in, one of the rules was to trade an equal or greater number of titles. In other words, to put in the same number or more than you take out. Since this is a virtual book box, weight won't be an issue, so this seems like a good rule to me, & when we get around to posting the guidelines, I had thought to mention that. Maybe we're at that point now.

I also agree on an abridged/unabridged note being optimal. I like to know, too! Perhaps the abridged (or not) info could be mentioned in our book list, & a read-by note could be listed on the book's journal entry?

Thanks for your suggestions & the seed books, JudySlump612. It's much appreciated!

I just realized that I misunderstood what you were saying here, JudySlump612. You were talking about the total number of CDs or cassettes, not the number of titles, right? Sorry about that!

Well, I can see your point. People might get mad if someone were to come along & take all the larger books with many tapes, & only replace them with smaller books with fewer tapes. On the other hand, others may not care, & may just want a new book, not caring about how many tapes it has.

I tend to come down on the side of not really caring, & preferring to trust people to do the right thing. But what do you all think? I'd like to hear your thoughts.

New players welcome!

I just noticed the message requesting seed audiobooks. I've got a couple I can give to start this off. Sorry I missed this for so long. I'll PM you with them.

Thanks, imawinn2. It's much appreciated!

(If you have not yet PM'd me with your seed books, please do so now. Thanks!)

Hi LittleWhite Bird,

I think it could work out. If you signed up, you would be player #7. Since we're allowing 5 days for each player to make their selections, that's only 40 days total, plus mail time for our packages to arrive. We'll be starting in January (altho I'm getting excited to get this going!), so we should be finished by the end of February or early March. If you planned ahead, & set aside say 3-5 tapes earmarked for this VBB, couldn't you work that out?

Let me know if you decide to go for it. :-)

Profile Image
I'm sending you the details of my seed books now.
Profile Image
Great - I've got you down. And thanks for the seed books!

Profile Image
Thank you! We've got 29 books on the list (so far), & I expect to be able to add several more over the next few weeks, so I think we're in good shape.

I'm getting excited to get this started!
Profile Image
I have tons of books I would be happy to trade!
Profile Image
Absolutely! Welcome! :-)

Profile Image
The list is up to 34 titles now, from various genres. I think (hope!) everyone will be able to find something to their liking.

I'm getting excited to start! Merry Christmas, everyone! January will be here before you know it!

Thanks, grubsneerg!

Profile Image
All the books I requested have arrived! Thank you all!
Profile Image
Here are the four titles I'm choosing:
- Blue Road to Atlantis (BigJohnLefty)
- By the Pricking of my Thumbs (iwillrejoice)
- The Dante Club (grubsneerg)
- A Dirty Job (grubsneerg)

I'm putting in more than four because most of mine are only two cassettes. I don't know how many CD's are in the Dante Club, but since the book isn't terribly long, I'm guessing an abridged version would be only two or three disks. So, I'm taking 17 or 18 disks or cassettes, and replacing them with 17. I hope that seems fair. Here they are:
- Get Shorty by Elmore Leonard (abridged, 2 cassettes)
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/2568230/
- The Copper Peacock, by Ruth Rendell (unabridged, 2 cassettes)
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/5418814/
- A Perfect Murder, by Jeffrey Archer (unabridged, 2 cassettes)
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/7204322/
- Cracker: To Say I Love You (Adaption from TV show, 2 cassettes)
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/7579612/
- Spy Who Came In from the Cold, by John Le Carre (BBC dramatisation, 3 CD's)
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/9735071/
The Hanged Man's Song, by John Sandford (unabridged, 6 cassettes)
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/10361985/

I will also insert a shameless plug for an audiobook sweepstakes I just started. You'll find it in the RABCK forum, and you're all welcome to join!

Profile Image
Would you like to go another round?

If yes, would you like it to start immediately, or would you prefer a reading break until, say, March 1?

What say ye? :-)
Profile Image
It takes a lot longer to actually listen to all the books than it does to request them!
Profile Image
March would be too late for me with my upcoming move. (After that I could only do maybe May, that would give me a little reading break after my move.)
Profile Image
I have to get some listening time in before I get in on another round. I have cassettes galore to share right away but my CD collection needs accumulate.
Profile Image

Waiting

May would be fine with me, and if that makes it easier for LittleWhiteBird, can I change my vote to then?
Profile Image
If we all want to continue. :-)

Another option would be to allow LittleWhiteBird a chance to do her round 2 right now. I could just send her the list.

Does anyone want to change out their listed books?

Profile Image
Just letting you know that Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging arrived courtesy of Moody-Blue. The only one left that I'm waiting for is Treasure of Khan by Clive Cussler (PaulsBooks).

As far as the next round... you can leave my audiobooks on the list. I don't need to change them. Also, I think it would be just fine to let LittleWhiteBird make her picks before her move. Ok, off to do some "ear reading".
Profile Image
... to let them know what's going on, & to see if they want to re-up &/or change out their books.

And then I'll send LittleWhiteBird the list so she can do her round 2 picks now.

Profile Image
The box with the book was in my box today ;)
Thank you!
Profile Image
... Thanks, grubsneerg, for this & the wishlist book! =D

Profile Image
One person has apparently dropped out (no response to my PM), & one person wants to add some books to the list. As soon as we get that squared away, I'll be sending the list to LWB for her early picks.
Profile Image
I received today:

And You Know You Should Be Glad by Bob Greene and
The Devil and Miss Prym by Paulo Coelho.

Thank you imawinn2!
Profile Image
I guess we'll communicate if it gets close to my move and not everyone has chosen books for round 2 yet (I don't want to take all the books I've already read on my move - but I have some other books that I can make available when I get to the new place (which is my old place that I'm going back to).)
Profile Image
I received the two books from BigJohnLefty today:

The Quiet Girl by Peter Hoeg and
Lavender Lies by Susan Wittig Albert.

I now have received all books I requested for round 1.
Profile Image
... 1/27/12. Happy picking!

Profile Image
... to see where we're at, & we're doing well! Almost all books have been received, or are at least travelling to their new homes. Only one hasn't been sent yet, so if you're not sure if that's one of yours, feel free to PM me.

Thanks for being such a responsible bunch! :-) It makes it so much more fun.

I believe I'm the culprit. :-( But I've just returned from the PO where I mailed Metro Girl to Paul's Books, and Perfect Murder to LittleWhiteBird, so you're now right up to date.

Great! Thanks, JudySlump612!
Profile Image
Thanks iwillrejoice for accommodating the restrictions my move in April poses on this!

Got your PM, LWB. Thanks! I'll try to get Vulcan's Forge out in tomorrow's mail.

Funny about the Star Trek one. You were the person who originally registered that book! And now here it is, in this VBB. :-) Still making the rounds!

Profile Image
They are on their way (I was going to go to the post office today anyway, so I packed them up and took them with me).
Profile Image
That was quick! Thanks, LWB. :-)
Profile Image
... this round. So, The List is off to JudySlump612 today, 3/5/12. Happy picking!

Profile Image
First, I'm withdrawing two that have been through the full circuit without being chosen:
-Get Shorty by Elmore Leonard (abridged, 2 cassettes) (JudySlump612)
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/2568230/

- Cracker: To Say I Love You (Adaptation from TV show, 2 cassettes) (JudySlump612)
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/7579612/

And I'm choosing these three titles:
- Daylight by Max Allan Collins (abridged - 2 cassettes) (iwillrejoice)
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/10327292

-The Executioner’s Song by Norman Mailer (2 cassettes – Unabridged) (imawinn2)
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/6933021/

-A Gracious Plenty by Sheri Reynolds (2 cassettes – Abridged) (imawinn2)
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/7698550/

A total of ten cassettes removed; I will PM imawinn2 and iwillrejoice.

In exchange, I'm offering these three books:
- The Venetian Betrayal, Steve Berry (5 CD's - abridged)*
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/7912906/

- Good Faith, Jane Smiley (13 CD's - unabridged)

* My JE about this book has to do more with the genre than that specific title. If you enjoy thrillers, this may be a great book for you.
