[CLOSED] ABC (Alphabet) Bookrings - US version - Books Beginning with the Letter C

Here's how it works:

I'll start the ring out by posting 2 books whose title starts with the letter C to the first person on the list. Articles (a, an, or the) don't count -- look to the next word. So, for example, "A Streetcar Named Desire" would be considered an S-book. "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" is a T-book.

So, I send the package with 2 C-books to the first person on the list. That person takes *one* book out & replaces it with another C-book, & then sends those 2 to the next person. And so on.

You post in the forum:

1. when the books arrive
2. what book you chose
3. when you mail the books to the next person.

That way we all know where the books are. The last person on the list sends the books to me.

Don't post the title of the book you *don't* take, or your new addition -- let that be a surprise. Only post the title you are taking out. Oh, & please journal the book you take out promptly.

I think that we should all be able to mail this back out within a week to 10 days. After all, all we're doing is replacing one book.

If by some chance, you just don't like or you've already read one round's offerings, you can either opt to skip your turn & mail the books on without taking one. Or you could consider it an opportunity for a wild release, & just take one out for that purpose (replacing it with one of your own). Your choice.

I think that's everything. Anyone want to play? :-)

I am sure that I am going to pick Case Histories by Kate Atkinson. I am sorry to say but it will probably be a week before I get to the post office. My step-father had a heart attack and is in the hospital and my mom is scheduled for surgery next week. They are both doing well-just keeping me running.

C books when into the mail on 2/12/14, I just realized I did not write that I had posted them. They were on their way in a snowstorm - I double wrapped them, I hope they arrive dry.

And yes, they arrived nice and dry. Pm'g the next in line. My replacement is ready - just need to choose one to keep. This will go out with the next post-office mail run later this week.

Neither of the books were really my taste, but Clean is on someone's wishlist. So, I picked that one & will rabck it forward.

I added my book to the packet. I have Lynn's address, so I will add a tracking # here when I mail this out tomorrow.

I received these not too long ago, and have finally made my decision. I chose The Camel Club, by David Baldacci. Looking forward to it just as soon as I can see well enough to read paper books again. I'm ready to ship my replacement on to the next person, but it looks like I'm the last (good thing, I guess). Who do I ship these off to? Thanks!

Thanks, Stephario! I'm looking forward to seeing what C-books arrive!

Well, they may have been at the post office for a few days, as I was out of town, but they're here now. I received Curtain by Agatha Christie & Coldwater by Mardi McConnochie. Thank you!

And thank you all for being a part of this book ring / spiral / game!

The C-Ring is now concluded.
