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

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

Received the G authors today. Both of the books are John Grishams -- one of which I have already read. I was also thinking of including another Grisham book in the package going to Southernfryed. However, I checked her bookshelf and she already has or has read both Grisham books I would be sending. So instead I will keep both books:

Playing for Pizza (which I have read and will probably wild release) and
The Innocent Man (which I have not read)

I will replace these with two non-Grisham books and send off to Southernfryed as soon as I confirm with her. Hope this is OK. :-)

cheli-garza? Did you receive the books yet? devon612? Did you have a chance to mail them?

Profile Image
I apologize, I did receive a response from cheli-garza on the 17th but that was right as the holiday madness began. I'm finally able to get back to real life this week so I will send it out.
