German language box (US only - CLOSED)

I have a couple of German language books (Literature&fiction) that I would like to get moving.

Some books are from German authors, but other are translated from various languages into German including English. I would like to make this an US box with rather open change rules (i.e. you can also swap 1:2, 2:1, 1:0) as people might not have so many books around or need to get some moving, too.

Any interest?

It's up to Weiterferne of course, but you have only joined BC today and although you have already asked to join six rays/bookboxes, you have not registered any books. You must know this looks suspicious. You might become a great Bookcrosser, but you should register and release books first to prove you are, and not just someone who would love to add free books to their collection.

Khrissi,

in diesem Fall würde ich das folgende vorschlagen: Schreib mal was für deutschsprachige Bücher dich interessieren und was du so zum tauschen hast.

Wir können dann evtl. ein Buch tauschen, nachdem die Box rum ist oder falls es kein Interesse für die Box gibt. Die ganze Box möchte ich auch nicht schicken.

... lateron, late April, when I'm back at my place in California.

Saw that you had a German language bookbox as well. A pity that it got lost. Let's see if we find more participants.

I received your message asking for Boxes of Harlequin books and I see that you have been active on the forums asking for books as well. We have had people join before thinking that this site is just to receive free books but that is not the goal of Bookcrossing , it is to share books. You should check this link for helpful info about Bookcrossing:

http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/453800

After you have registered some books and become an active member you will find that this is a great place to be with lots of friendly people and people will be more receptive to you and your requests.

Welcome to Bookcrossing!

I'm interested in reading a few German books, but I don't exactly know how book boxes work. I'm a new member.

Edit: Never mind, I looked at the FAQ. I don't have any German books to put in the box if I take one. If anyone is willing to share one of theirs for a while, we can trade? but of course it's up to you all. I have a ton of books in the basement that we are done reading, just no German ones to put back in the box.

Edit: I might be able to ask my German teacher for any old German books he doesn't want any more. That way I could put them in the box :P

until now there are not too many people interested. So I might just RABCK some books out and put you on my mental list.

but on the later side, too, if possible!

Bump

Let me bump this up a bit. I let it rest as all interest was for a bit later.

eponine38, LittleWhiteBird - would you be ready to join? Otherwise I might just RABCK some of this books and of course you are welcome to participate in this.

Any new faces?

Yes

I would be ready.

Great, I will put the box together and send it out soon. Let's see if there will be some other serious participants.

Hi, I am in the US and read science fiction in English and German. Can you give some info on the types of books in the box? Am I likely to find science fiction there?

mit herzlichen grüßen,

The books that I will put in the box are nearly all 'literature&fiction'.

I am open to different genres to be put in the box, but if the participants before you don't add any science-fiction, there will be none in there.

My reading preference is mostly Science Fiction and Science Non-Fiction, so I think I will pass on this. (But I have read some of the books on your list - Andrić and Steinbeck.) Good luck with your bookbox!

Well, if you ever feel like sending around any science non-fiction books - I would be in. Love those, but don't have so many around in German that are not in my permanent collection.

Herzliche Grüsse!

I sent out the box today so it's now travelling!

It is still open for new participants. (Also wavesofjoy01 if you are still around and want to change some books 1:2 or so - let me know.)
