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

Here's how it works:

I'll start the ring out by posting 2 books whose title starts with the letter N 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 N-books to the first person on the list. That person takes *one* book out & replaces it with another I-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'm a little worried about this one, since I see that mrsjones is in Florida. I hope not for the winter!

Always good to confirm before you ship, even if you have the address. (Maybe you did?)

That's to be expected. Thanks for letting us know!

Profile Image
Well, the post office moved these along quickly. Unfortunately, faster than I thought, because I am still reading my N book. I do promise to move these along right after Christmas. I'll PM the next in line so that I have the address and can send them as soon as I finish my book.
Profile Image
Sorry for the delay!! The N package is finally going in the mail today.

I choose The Neighbor by Lisa Gardner. Looks like an entertaining Detective mystery.

Thanks, tabby-cat-owner!

PM'g next in line, will note my selection when I post it forward
Profile Image
I chose Needle and Thread http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/8111738

I try to read an ABC book in advance for this ring. And I did. But, when I went to release the "N" book I had ready - it came from the next in line for this ring....ooops.

So I just pulled another ABC "N" book - it's skinny - and it doesn't have a j/e from heartthumper...nor the rest of the folks on this ring. Should be read in the next week or so, THEN the bookring will move along.

(and off to check the next rings that's I'm waiting for to make sure what I'm pulled to read will work)

Copy from M post:



We had a mass exodus at work that left me as the only employee... I'm finally getting some time off. Thank you for the understanding. I'm going to give it a week or so before I bombard her with the N's.\\

No response to PM's & it's been over a month. :-/

I chose No Shirt, No Shoes... No Problem by Jeff Foxworthy. :) Since I wasn't prepared for this I'm going to hurry up and read an N book from my own shelf to contribute before sending this on. Also, this came with at least six books, so I may wild release a few as well. Regardless, this will be back on the road in a week.

Wow. I was just thinking about the M & N books. Did the M's come with the N's?

Profile Image
Nope. Only the N books. Also, I just released Northern Lights from here. By Philip Pullman. :)

I'll get these sent on their way next week...

They travelled together with the M-books. I received The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri & The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks. Thanks for sharing, everybody!

This concludes the N-ring.
