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

Here's how it works:

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

Just wondering if the books have arrived...

Profile Image
... but I'm afraid this ring has stalled. No response to my PM, & it's been almost a month... I'll try to get a couple L-books read ASAP & get this going again.

Profile Image
tabby-cat-owner has graciously stepped in & volunteered to re-start this ring, so we're back in business! I've been reading L-books as fast as I can, but just wasn't quite ready to go, so this is a great help. Thanks so much, tabby-cat-owner!

So, be on the look-out for L-books, Southernfryed. They'll be heading your way soon!

Profile Image
Thanks again, tabby-cat-owner!

Profile Image
I am chosing The Line Between Here and Gone by Andrea Kane. Pming innae for her address and will get this moving again later this week.
Profile Image
I'm choosing Lord Edgware Dies by Agatha Christie. Books will be on their way as soon as I get Ravencat's address!
Profile Image
Books arrived today and I have chosen Lady Almina and the Real Downton Abbey. I love Downton Abbey and can't wait to read this one and I have already read the other "L" book so this choice was easy!! Will send books out as soon as I get next persons address.

Stephario, have you had a chance to choose one & mail them yet?

Yes, sorry. Got a little hectic around here. I've chosen Look Again, by Lisa Scottoline. I've pm'd Suezq60 for her address and will package up the books as soon as I get it. They'll be in the mail Tuesday.

I do not know if Stephario has mailed the books yet, but if she mailed it when she said she would, it's only been 7 days. Let's give it a bit longer.

Profile Image
... next Tuesday, we'll declare this this one stalled & re-start it as soon as I'm able.

(Reading an L-book now just in case)

Profile Image
But perryfran has volunteered to re-start it. Thanks, perryfran!

Profile Image
...replacement L books are in the mail to Suezq60. Hopefully, this ring will now make it to the end!

At the top of this page, click on the BOOK & PEOPLE tab. Then click SEARCH. Next click on the MEMBER tab. Type the name in the MEMBER TAB.

I think they arrived sometime during the Blizzard of 16 (I had 2 feet of snow in my driveway - much of it drifted though, so not sure how much actual accumulation) -- I have made my choice - selecting Losing Julia - and will get them headed out as soon as I have an address :-)

Sending for Ravencat's address now. I may have it, but I need to Pm anyway just to make sure she is ready for the books' arrival!


Erp - You do know this is the L-books thread, right??? Your N-book should be heading to booklady331 next!

So sorry for the delay in journaling! Mass exodus at work :(

Taking Danielle Steele's "Legacy" --- PMing cheli-garza to pass on! (Will journal book today after work).

About two weeks ago... Right when we got a new kitten... He's not a normal kitten. He's humongous, smart, a troublemaker, and acts like a dog. Little weirdo. So yeah, I've been distracted. My apologies, everyone. I'm messaging iwillrejoice for an address and will get this package back on the road ASAP.

P.S. What books did you choose? :-)

Do you want me wait and mail them together?
