[CLOSED] ABC Authors Book Rings - US version - Letter C

The way it works is like this: I'll start the ring out by posting 2 books whose author's last name starts with the letter C to the first person on the list. That person takes *one* book out & replaces it with another C-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? :-)

Names will be shuffled between each round.

Now. The difficult part. I always try to choose a book to pass along so I don't have another book in the house. But this time, I really want to read BOTH of these books!! I will not be able to mail the books off until Thursday, so I'll have until then to make up my mind!!!
Profile Image
I rec'd Suezq60's address and will have everything ready for mailing on Thursday.

I have chosen Tell Me Lies by Jennifer Crusie. I will PM the next person and move the books on this week.

Thank you, booklady331. :)

I've chosen The Stranger by Harlan Coben and put in ******. I am expecting a few more books to arrive in the next several days, so I'll wait a bit to see if I can send everything off at once. Regardless, I'll try to get these off sometime this week.

This concludes the C-Authors ring. H is next, but as we just sent out the G's, I'll wait a bit to start the H's.

Thanks to all for being a part of these rings!
