I am organizing my first VBB. This VBB is for books about the Holocaust. The books may be fiction or non-fiction as long as the fiction book is based on real-life events. I would like to thank debbie4osu in advance because I have borrowed the following directions from her forum thread (and tweaked them a bit).
Each participant should offer one or more books as seed books for the box to start. After you commit to joining the VBB, please send me the title(s)/author(s)/BCID number(s) of the seed book(s). Please hang onto your one(or more) seed books until such time as they are selected from the VBB.
Each person will have 7 days to make their selections and additions.
Please be timely in mailing your books out if your books are selected.
Your one or more original books donated to this VBB are seed books. Any book or books you select from the VBB when it is your turn, you will need to replace by adding one or more books to the VBB.
You may add extra books to the VBB at any time-just let me know.
If you aren't ready to choose a book when it is your turn, I can place your name at the end of the list for a second chance or you can ask to be skipped.
I will keep the participant list up to date on this thread, and will PM the next person with the current VBB book list. When it is your turn and you have finished making your choices, please PM me back with the books to be removed and added to the VBB. I will then PM the next person with the current list of books in the VBB.
It is your responsibility to PM the person who needs to send you the books you have selected. Also, when it is your turn and you have selected some books, please post on this thread what books you have selected and when your books have arrived.
Whenever I see a Holocaust book that I haven't read (in a thrift store, of course), I usually buy it. I have a couple dozen Holocaust books TBR. I plan to add these to the VBB as I read them. Because of this, I hope that this VBB will have additional rounds.
Following are my seed books. I will not display the books that other bookcrossers seed, you will see them when it is your turn to choose from the VBB.
