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

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

I have mine ready, but asked rara to delay mailing for a few days, so it doesn't arrive when I'm in California. Even though I can put the mail on hold, sometimes the doorstep ones still get delivered and go AWOL. Best to wait a smidge.

AS I already read one of them, the choice is easy. PM'g the next in line.

I've added my book, and will now check in with MmeClinton who is the next participant. Books are actually wrapped and ready to go!

Still feeling very under the weather. I've been going to work and straight home to sleep. Promise to get these books out asap! Sorry for the delay!

Thanks for letting us know, devon612!!! ; ) If I lived closer, I'd bring over some Chicken Noodle Soup. Managed to keep some down myself today. ; ) Getting enough sleep is important to boost your immune system. Sweet Dreams!!! ; )

Thank you so much BOOKWORNINUSALL!!! I am finally better and getting caught up on everything! I hope you are feeling better also!

Books were mailed Saturday! Sorry for the delay!

The envelope was delivered some time during this past week, which has been a whirlwind with the need to hospitalize the Family Veteran I take care of, who is out immediate crisis, but in need of follow-up appointments with several other doctors for this newest challenge to add to the long list of health concerns...and that's not counting mine. ; ) Never a dull moment!!! : )

I have Journalled the books, chosen devon612's Dead to the World (Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood) by Charlaine Harris http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14390498 , added a book, prepared the package, and will send it off to BookLovinMama on Monday. WHEW!!!

HAPPY WEEKEND ALL!!! ; D

I know the site hides when things are posted now, & also rounds the date off, so 3+ weeks now looks like 2 weeks... Still, it's been a while now, & I'd kind of like to know where these books are. Thanks!

Profile Image
Checked today's mail as I noticed I'm next in line. I do not have them yet, but I have my book ready to send on so it should be a quick turnaround when they arrive.

Thanks for responding, BookLovinMama. It's beginning to look like this ring is stalled. In just a few more days, it will be a month since they were last received.

Guess I'd better start reading some H-Author books to get this started again!

Profile Image
...should be a quick turnaround when they arrive.


My intention was to have a quick turnaround with the "H" book I had ready to go, too...after devon612 was ill and the arrival of the "H" books here was stalled for quite sometime, because I already had BookLovinMama's address!!! ; )

It's beginning to look like this ring is stalled.


Stalled perhaps...but not lost or forgotten, iwillrejoice!!! Please forgive me, each and everyone of you...and accept my sincere apologies. Knock on wood...I have tonight and tomorrow with no need to be travelling non-stop for miles and miles each day between three cities to VA Care Centers waiting for hours and hours with the Veteran until next week, nor see any specialists for either of us, nor be stuck for hours at an auto or tire repair shop, or in the Hospital ER, so I am trying to play "catch up" on bills, laundry, cleaning, and an overwhelming number of BookCrossing commitments that all seemed to have arrived at once in the midst of the outbreak of chaos. There was no way to anticipate any of this. My only hope is that tiny little...MAYbe only 6 pounds at birth like her tiny little 2-1/2 year old big Sister was...baby Granddaughter #2 will wait to arrive for another month...please, and that her Grandpa will make it through the next round of tests scheduled at the VA for next week, so that she will be able to meet him. I am very depressed and feeling as though I have let my BookCrossing Family down, even though I had no control in the matter. I've had some BookCrossing things "in the ready" to mail for several weeks with literally no opportunity to get to the Post Office during open hours of operation. In 13 years of BookCrossing I have NEVer not been able to follow through with my commitments in timely fashion, in spite delays of others who came before me, who quite often have their own life and health challenges. Why, I haven't even been able to place my BookCrossing Supply Order once my disability deposit was finally made to help support the site and have the current labels for International BookCrossing Day!!! Always being on the run is mentally, physically, and emotionally exHAUSTing...especially with the health issues I am personally struggling with. THANK YOU ALL for your patience!!!

FYI...the "I"s are here, as well, and BookLovinMama is next in line for those, too. I will be Journalling them here shortly, and will send the "H" envelope inside the box the "I"s came in, as the box is rather large for two books, and had a lot of stuffing, so it will easily hold all four books. I'll post in the "I" book Forum, shortly. ; )

P.S. One box for both may well make it easier for BookLovinMama to send the "H"s and "I"s as one parcel to cheli-garza, too...as she is next in line for both just in front of YOU, iwillrejoice!!! You may want to PM her for her address now, BookLovinMama. ; ) I will post the tracking # once I have it. ; )
Profile Image
No worries! It sounds like you have a lot going on!

I have cheli-garza's address from the R book ring but will give her a heads up that these books will be coming in one package. Good think I have my I Author ready to go as well!

Thanks for sending the books along BOOKWORMINUSALL! Also for the extra book for the boys. They love the bookmarks and can't wait to read the book.

For the H Author, I'm keeping A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaleo Hosseini. http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/9906658

Books will be placed in the mail by Saturday, maybe sooner if I can make it to the post office.

My pleasure, BookLovinMama. ; ) Hope the book is age appropriate and not too easy for them. Once this year's Summer Reading Program at the Library starts up in June, I will look to see if they have any new bookmarks with new designs. Was fun to hear the boys like using them to mark the lines, because I do TOO!!! ; D
