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

Here's how it works:

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

Aarrrggghhh. The queued up replacement was chosen to be the May read for bookclub. So, unearthed the only other non-romance "U" book in my possession. Packed up and heading to the post office now.

I was just at the PO this morning, so I'll get the books ready to mail the next time I pass the PO.

I know you're enjoying your summer with the family!!

Anyway, 'YOU' Sneaky Pete, 'YOU!' Slid in a little book with a 'YOU' instead of a "U" and YOU just knew it would catch my attention!

So, I took out 'YOU are Free'

Already put my book in! Wrapped and ready to go. I will PM BooksnBeer tonight to get the address and the books will be on their way on Saturday.

I received these books last Friday and just now got a chance to log them.

Actually, it is good timing. I have 50 pages left in my U book. I'll write for an address and be able to mail this as soon as I receive the address.

ohh...i'll choose The Unseen by Richie Tankersley Cusick

Just sent lane1088 a message to get a mailing address. Trying to decide which book to keep. :)

Books will be mailed Saturday. We got a little behind with family unexpectedly in town for the eclipse.

OK. So, what book did you choose? :-)

Profile Image

So....

First, I selected The Unit. Can't wait to read it.

Second, I just returned to the office from a week out. The team missed mailing the U books and brought them back to me. I had given several boxes to a girl who was going to the post office already and it was missed. As she's not venturing to the post office this week, I will get it in the mail ASAP...but it might be Saturday.

I AM SO SORRY!!! (She apologizes as well.)

I received them at some time this past week but as I was at the beach, i only got them today. I am going to take "undercover in high heels". I'm almost done with the book I plan to send back to Iwillrejoice. I will send them out as soon as possible and update here when I do.

I just arrived home last night after an extended trip, & found these in my collected mail. The Unfinished Clue by Georgette Heyer & The Untouchable by John Banville. Thanks for sharing, everybody!

This concludes the U book ring.
