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

Here's how it works:

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

USPS tracking says it was delivered to your mailbox 12/6 at 2:33pm. You might need to call your local post office if it wasn't.

Profile Image
They sure were NOT delivered yesterday. I will call the post office.
Profile Image
Now,well I guess it isn't Scottish anymore. Just junk mail yesterday and no mail at all today. I will have to visit PO in person and ask. I thought I would give it one more day, but no books.

Profile Image
Sorry, BooksandMusic. I've got the same situation here. Sure miss Juanita!

You might want to check with your neighbors, as well as speaking to your postmaster. Also, there's a link on the usps.com website for help finding missing packages.

In the meantime, I'll start reading S-books to get this started again.

time to go to the PO yet! I will look and see if I have another S book so I can restart it. I will get to the PO, I just have a busy schedule right now and the lines at the PO are outrageous.

I always just phone.

But, I see that there's something going on with that tracking number. It now says that it's departed Federal Way, WA on 12/9 at 12:19pm. So, there may still be hope.

Now it's back in Seattle. Maybe it'll take another run at it!

Profile Image
Why would it have gone to Federal Way??? That is way south of here, near the airport. Also we got no mail on Friday or Saturday, but Saturday night at 8 PM we heard someone come on the porch and deposit mail in the box. We were too slow to see who it might be but it seems unlikely that PO staff is delivering mail at 8 PM on a Saturday night. My guess is a neighbor who got our mail delivered in their box. Until I understand what is going on I am going to have the PO hold all my mail and I will pick it up. There is a missing Amazon order as well.
Profile Image
It looks like it may have been misaddressed. It now shows it as being forwarded with this note:

Your item was forwarded to a different address at 8:26 am on December 10, 2016 in SEATTLE, WA. This was because of forwarding instructions or because the address or ZIP Code on the label was incorrect
Profile Image
What would you like me to do Iwillrejoice? I can just wait or restart with 2 new S books.

Well, if you don't mind waiting, I can read a couple S-books & send them to you. But it might be after the holidays, at this point.

Looks like it was returned to katiesmama so maybe it can be resent with the correct address?

That would be nice...

I haven't been following this thread. I just sent Booksandmusic a PM asking for her address again and we'll do a re-do. I got home from traveling earlier this week to find a note from USPS that I've got a parcel at the post office. I can't get there until Saturday since they're closed by the time I get out of work. But I'm guessing these books are what's waiting for me. I'll take a new envelope with me when I go and get these back out.

I am not really interested in either book, so I am choosing the heavier of the two to release later -- 7th Heaven by James Patterson.

I will get the books mailed off as soon as I have Suezq60's addy.

Yes, it is a holiday, but I took advantage of the self-service kiosks and got the books headed to Suezq60 --

Aborted mission. The address provided was giving the USPS computer fits, so it's back to double check it again.

I chose The Scandalous Summer of Sissy LeBlanc http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/4941426

The books were here when I returned home from a business trip Friday. I have selected Sweet Death, Kind Death by Amanda Cross. The books were mailed to iwillrejoice Saturday. I can look for the tracking number if needed, but I don't have it on me at the moment.

No worries on the tracking number. It's already popped up on my USPS app.

The Simplicity of Cider by Amy E. Reichert & Songs of the Humpback Whale by Jodi Picoult. Thank you! Plus an H- & an I-Author book, for the rings that stalled. That was so kind, & very appreciated.

This concludes the S-books ring. Thanks for being a part of it, everybody!
