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

Here's how it works:

I'll start the ring out by posting 2 books whose title starts with the letter E 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 E-books to the first person on the list. That person takes *one* book out & replaces it with another E-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? :-)

Oh - a debate. Both look good.

I already have 2 boxes going out tomorrow, so this will get held until next week to be mailed. I'll have to make my selection by then :-)

PM'g next in line, so it will be ready to go.

Eventide will stay in Pa. I have Plainsong around somewhere, so that will be read first, since this is book 2.

Mailing out after work tomorrow. Will post tracking #

It may be the middle of next week before I get to the post office to mail them out again.
I am planning to take Eggs in Purgatory by Laura Childs out of the box.

Aberpeter, since you'll be away, why don't I just move you down the list a bit. That way, the books keep moving, & you can take your turn when it's more convenient for you. :-)

Profile Image
I'm looking forward to this ring - I have a book ready. I have PMed my address to Tabby.

I received the E books yesterday and I will choose Ever After by Anne Edwards. This just grabbed me the second it came out of the package. I am interested in getting an inside look at Princess Diana.

LOL.

The "E" Bookring will be mailed and on their way to Ohio on Monday!!! Happy reading!

Dilemma- I've already read them both. I'll choose one anyway and wild release it. PMing Stephario for an address.

I made my choice. I took 'The Eyre Affair.' I've already heard back from Stephario, so have the books bundled and ready to be shipped out tomorrow.
Profile Image
Wow, that was quick! Thanks, mrsjones!

Profile Image
But I won't be able to do anything with them until Friday. I'm slammed busy until then. Until then, I'll go ahead and get perryfran's addy so I'll have it when I can get to these books Friday.
Profile Image
OK. Thanks for letting us know, Stephario. Have a good week!

I chose The Ex Files, by Jane Moore. I'll get my addition and the other book sent off to perryfran either tomorrow or Monday. Unfortunately, I'm already too late to make it to the post office today. Thanks all!

Received books today. I'll make my selection and get the books out again as soon as I get an address.

Edit: I am selecting "Exile Trust" by Vincent O'Neil.

Okay, I received the books on Tuesday. I checked every book I could find in my apartment and could not find one that starts with an E. I will send both books I received to iwillrejoice. Will PM for an address.
Profile Image
I've PM'd you back, mngirl. Thanks!

Profile Image
I had planned to get books in mail today but we had severe winter weather today which made driving difficult. Since tomorrow is Veterans Day, the post offices will be closed. Hopefully on Wednesday.
Profile Image
Sorry its taken so long to send. Just started a seasonal job and have been very busy. Post office opens after I start job and closes before I leave work. Will do better with F.
Profile Image
OK, mngirl. Thanks for letting us know.

Profile Image
Ellen Foster by Kaye Gibbons & Exposed by Alex Kava Are now safe with me in chilly Florida. (OK, it's 66°, but that's cool for us. And it was cold last night!)

Anyway... Thanks for sharing, everybody! Another successful ring. The E Ring is now concluded. I'll go start the H-Ring ASAP.
