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

Here's how it works:

I'll start the ring out by posting 2 books whose title starts with the letter Q 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 Q-books to the first person on the list. That person takes *one* book out & replaces it with another Q-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? :-)

... & start the Q-ring. Since the L-N rings don't seem to be moving right now, & I'm the only one being affected by that, I thought I'd go ahead & start the Q-ring while we try to get that sorted out.

Note: the rings seem to keep getting bunched up, so I'm only going to start one ring right now, to try & stagger them again.

PM'ing you now...

I have Suezq's address but will send her a PM first to make sure she's ready for them. They'll be in the mail come Saturday. I haven't selected one yet as I have to make sure I have something to replace it with. Will update when they're on the way again.

I've already read one of the books in the ring and I only had two Q books in my PC that I couldn't bear to part with for the remaining book in the package. So rather than hold this up for a week while I go out this weekend to find a new Q book, I'm just going to repackage and send the two I received back out again. I don't like to do that, but I hate holding up the books for another week even more. I can only get to the post office on Saturdays. I'll post the tracking number tomorrow.

Books received yesterday and as a quilter it was a no-brainer. I chose The Quilter's Apprentice by Jennifer Chiaverini. I love her books! I will probably release it in one of my local quilt shops as a themed release. PMing Lynn for her address now.

No reply from Aberpeter. I sent a PM on 7/21. I received a copy of the email so I'm certain it went through. Should I PM again or move on to the next in line?

Just move on to Southernfryed. If Aberpeter gets in touch later, we can always move her down the list for another chance. Thanks!
