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

Here's how it works:

I'll start the ring out by posting 2 books whose title starts with the letter G 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 G-books to the first person on the list. That person takes *one* book out & replaces it with another G-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 got the books and they both look SO good! It was a hard decision, but I'm going to keep 'Ghost on Black Mountain' since it's on my wish list.

PMing the next person for an address.

Silly me - I received the package of G book about two days ago. I opened them an thought - oh what is this? I sat them by my computer and thought - I'll get back to them. Today I checked the Forum and noticed G books were shipped to me?? Then I began to put two and two together.

I will PM next in the list - right now.

I will select "The Girl in the Painted Caravan" by Eva Petulengro
Profile Image
Funny!

It does make the point, tho, that it's a good idea to mention the name of the book ring in your release notes, so the next person in line can easily see why 2 books have just arrived...

Profile Image
I have the next address and the two books are all packaged up. I will get this into the post office on Nov. 3rd. Sorrrry for the delay - I am away on a quick trip and I will get them into the post as soon as I return.
