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

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

Package was by my door last night, so it arrived some time yesterday while I was "on the road" from East Mesa to Downtown Phoenix to South Gilbert, back to Downtown Phoenix before returning to East Mesa about 8pm last night to try to get Veteran's most recent health care issue resolved. Have paperwork, record retrieval, and more appointments to set up today, but hope to be able to open the package somewhere in between to see which books have arrived, which one I will choose, and get it sent off as quickly as I can. May be a few days, but it's safe here with me. ; )

The "I"s are still here, and will go out on Monday to BookLovinMama, who is next in line. I will be Journalling them 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 posted an apology in the "H" book Forum a little bit ago. ; ) http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/8913767

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. ; )

Both books received two weeks ago, have now been Journalled, and I have chosen Magic Hour by Susan Isaacs http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14398372
