LittleWhiteBird's Shrinking Audio Bookbox

I’m moving soon and cannot read all the audio books that were given to me. So I’m keeping just a few and would like to start a bookbox with the rest of them, starting travel in March. This will be a mix of abridged and unabridged books; at the start, it’ll have mostly fiction, but a couple of non-fiction books as well. I’m planning to keep this within the US so it can be shipped by Media Mail.

- The box will start with all cassettes, because that’s all I have available right now, but participants will be able to exchange with either CDs or cassettes as they wish.
- Each participant can take out four more books than they put back in (e.g. if you take out five books, you only need to put one back in) (This rule has been adjusted, because there are only a few participants).
- Try to keep the box for not more than two weeks to look through it and make your exchanges before sending it on to the next participant.
- Please make updates in the little book I included as a journal http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/11009574

These are the books in the box at the start:

I'm in Minnesota, and can ship to Canada if you wish (and if anybody there signs up).
Profile Image
My first participant! Thanks for the offer to ship to Canada if necessary! If someone from Canada signs up who's willing to ship back to the US, I'm definitely taking participants from Canada as well.
Profile Image

Me, maybe

It's all about timing: I've got a CD box headed my way soon, and I'm on the list for at least one cassette box also. Let's see who else wants to play...
Profile Image
Thanks for joining. I'm sure we'll be able to work around your timing issues.
Profile Image
I have lots of cassette books and I rather like them better then cd's. I'm in Texas
Profile Image
Perfect. I have you on the list.
Profile Image
... but "resistance is futile", apparently. So, sign me up. ;->

Profile Image
We will be home by the end of March. I can post US or Canada
Profile Image
Nice to see you over here, too, iwillrejoice :)

Hallo peace-filled, does home mean US?

Profile Image
I'm in the same boat as hyphen8 but I just looked at my stash and I've got enough audiobooks "ear-read" to be able to handle another audiobook box. Sign me up. I'm in Wisconsin.
Profile Image
Nice to "meet" you again, too, imawinn2 :)
Profile Image
I'll leave this open for about another week or so.
Profile Image
I just sent the box off to judyslump612.

Remember that you each can take *four* extra audiobooks out of the box.

I've decided to include a little booklet that we can use as a journal to make updates http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/11009574
Profile Image
I got the box today, lots of great choices. It's just in time, I'm having eye muscle surgery on the 24th and my eyes will be patched for a few days, I'm so glad I got it before the hospital.
Profile Image
... and is shipping to imawinn2
Profile Image
imawinn2 is shipping to hyphen8.
Profile Image
... has received the box.
Profile Image
... has returned to me.

Thanks to all participants for making this such a good experience.
Profile Image
I'd love to join in if you're able to send int and go virtual??
