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

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 J to the first person on the list. That person takes *one* book out & replaces it with another J-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 am choosing Long Time Gone by J.A. Jance. I will contact the next person in line and get it mailed out. Thanks for including me!

Edit: My daughter just came by and begged for the other "J" book. Finn Family Moomintroll by Tove Jansson. Sorry for the delay while I track down a second "J" book. Who can say no to a 38 year old child??? Her comment was "Mom, It's like you reading the Hobbit." REALLY?????

I am struggling with which one I want to keep as I want to read them both! I will message the next in line for a mailing address and decide.

As I'm just south of St. Louis and we have quite a bit of flood waters at the moment (school was actually canceled for tomorrow), it might be closer to two weeks before I can post the books.

HAHAHAHAHA!!! : D Just sent it off and came back to add that I haven't Journaled the books yet, as I just received them, but will do so before the end of the night. ; ) If I hear from you yet tonight, they will go out tomorrow, as I was not able to get to the Post Office today, and absolutely MUST tomorrow. ; )

Well, I did get a Journal Entry made for both books, however, it IS a bit past midnight. ; ) I'm not going to list them here, because I want you to be surprised!!! : ) I DID receive your PM, so they will start their Journey Home to you tomorrow...er, I guess that's today now ; D...in the same little box they arrived in (I've already got it packed and ready to go, as it's the PERfect size!!! : ) I'm not concerned that I didn't find one this time round. There will be others. I just think the one I had set aside and ready to put in, isn't near as exciting for a mystery lover like you to read, as the one I'm leaving in...THE PLOT THICKENS...don't you just LOVE IT?!?!? : D
