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

Here's how it works:

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

Sorry about that, jmsmom. Summer can be hard, with vacations & all.

If you don't hear back soon, then move on to the next person. We can always bump her down the list if she gets back to you later.

Profile Image
Thanks, jmsmom!

Profile Image
yes. I think they said they should be there Friday.
Profile Image
That way the books won't be stuck in limbo if someone is away for 2 weeks (or more). Thanks!

Profile Image
OH, she did! I just didn't know if she had already went on to the next person because I took so long to respond with my address!
Profile Image
