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

Here's how it works:

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

The books were delivered on the 11th, & no response to my PM, which she has said goes to her phone. Maybe she's on vacation? But she still could have PM'd me...

We'll give it a little more time before assuming the worst. I do have 2 more F-books ready, just in case.

Stephario? You out there?

Profile Image

I'm here!

I don't know why you didn't get my return PM....I sent one explaining that the days got away from me and I didn't realize I had been holding on to these books so long. I've PM'd LynnGorman for their address but haven't received a reply yet...are my PM's not going through? I'll try again. As soon as I get her addy, I'll send these on. Oh! And I choose Fuzzy Sapiens, by H. Beam Piper. I'll journal that shortly. Sorry for all the confusion!
Profile Image
Thanks for checking in!

Profile Image
I have LynnGorman's addy now and will be sending hubby with the books tomorrow morning. Hope she enjoys her choices!
Profile Image
Mr. Stephario is headed to the post office now to send the books on their way. Again, I apologize for the delay. I'll do my best to be more timely next round. Enjoy!
