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

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 E to the first person on the list. That person takes *one* book out & replaces it with another E-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.

PM'ing NancyNova now.

Well, not anymore. I discovered that one of the E-Author books needed a bit of mending before I sent it out into the world. That's done now, & the books will go out tomorrow or Friday.

I'll be starting the F-Authors in a few...

I'm claiming Flint from the E books.
And reading the replacement book, since my original thought was the exact same book that's already in there!

You may not hear back from her right away. I saw in another forum that she had a death in the family, so why don't we move her down the list until she is back.

Oh, OK. I had read that she was not going to be responding to things online here, for that reason. Glad you heard back from her, then.

Carry on. :-)
