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

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

... for the F-Authors: 9449009699938433787153

Happy picking!

Reading ahead, I have discovered that I-Authors are somewhat rare. I think for the I's, we'll allow authors whose first or last names start with I. Otherwise we'll have a ring of folks swapping John Irving books!

While I desperately search for a book by an F author. Lol. I thought this ring was for books that start with an F. Oops!

My selection is Going Dutch by Katie Fford. :)

Actually, it looks like they arrived on 10/17, but I've been out of town. I received Mission to Paris by Alan Furst & White Oleander by Janet Fitch. Thanks for sharing, everybody!

This concludes the F-Authors ring.
