The last person. I have a ton of of audio books on cassettes in my collection and I need to get rid of the ones I've read ect.. I did one of these a while back and keno-mom was the last person to receive the box. With iwillrejoice retiring her VBB audiobook box, I don't have many folks to share them with so, I will probably continue to do this type of bookbox, as long as folks want to listen to cassettes.
If you know of anybody (in the U.S.A) who would be interested in participating, let them know about this. I'm keeping it to a small box so folks aren't overwhelmed.
I hope to get this box going soon, hopefully this week. Still open for new participants. I'll keep it open until it reaches last person. I have put together a mix of fiction, mysteries, non-fiction and even a bit of sci-fi. There are about 20 cassette audio books in the box. I am trying to keep the size of the box small to keep postage down and save our beloved postal folks from breaking their backs. PLEASE don't use this book box as a dumping spot. Just replace what you take (give or take a couple). Thanks!!
keno-mom has agreed to be last. She shares her audiobooks with a visually impaired Bookcrosser. How thoughtful! I will put together the order in which the bookbox will be sent and get that out as soon as possible. :-)
The box arrived last week while I was out of town and this week has been crazy. It's full of goodies and I've already made my selections/replacements. PMing Moody-Blue now and I'll have it sent out Monday. Sorry, all!
I hope it still gets here before my summer travels...
Oh, um...I didn't even think about that - I sort of presumed the box wouldn't get to me until *after* my travels. I'll be AFK from 6/16 to 6/27...but I'll make sure LittleWhiteBird has my address just in case. (If it arrrives while I'm gone, there will be someone to receive the box, but I won't post in the thread until I'm back.)
Well, it seems jsmeltser's message link is turned off and I can't seem to get through to him. I don't know quite what to make of this. I have not had problems with this bookcrosser in the past and am hoping all is OK. BUT, I'll tell you what, If we don't hear from him or the box doesn't show up, give me a little time and I will put another box together. Goodness knows I' have a ton of audio cassettes to share. I just have to listen to them before I have enough to box up and ship off. No worries.
Now, you folks that have vacations coming up can take off without wondering if that box will show up. IF, the box continues it's journey, then I can do a little rearranging of the order or just have Moody-Blue hang onto it for a bit. I'll keep all of you updated as best I can. I know there is disappointment but it's not the end of the world. More reading adventures to come. I promise! :-)
PS: LittleWhiteBird, when will you be returning from your travels? That would be helpful to know.
I'm back from my vacation. It's good to hear that eventually there will be a box coming even if you don't hear from jsmelter. My books on tape for the box have no problem waiting on their special shelf until it's time.
I hope you had a great time on your vacation. I just got back from a little one, myself. I did write a note to jsmelter and I hope the first box gets back on its journey, but I've been concentrating on listening to my stash of cassette audiobooks. I'll just keep plugging away until the box is full and can be sent off to you folks. Thanks for your patience!
The first box never surfaced. I have put together a new box of 16 cassettes. LittleWhiteBird was so kind to offer up some of her cassettes to fill the rest of the box. So, I rearranged the original order just a bit so that LittleWhiteBird will receive the box first. Hope everyone finds some good ear-listening adventures.
Also, I just want to let people know that I am happy to open this bookray to new participants. If you know someone, of good standing, that still listens to cassette audiobooks, I'm happy to add them onto the list.

and I have added an equal number:

Thanks so much. That pretty much cleared out my To Be Traded pile, apart from the many great books I’ve received from Hyphen8 and avoided listing here so I wouldn’t be sending them back to her!
I got the box yesterday and I'm just overwhelmed with everyone's kindness, I know v8cars will love these, although it will take a few months for me to send them on. I will post when I'm ready to send on to him. My email was hacked and I didn't realize it, I wasn't getting email from certain addresses including bookcrossing, anyway, it's all been taken care of. I've moved so much in my life, my Dad was in the military, that I've made up my mind that I'll have to be carted out of my house when I'm gone, so don't worry about my address changing. I'm always willing to find a home for unwanted cassettes:-) and I will always pass them on. I'll post my address on my BC page
