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

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 K to the first person on the list. That person takes *one* book out & replaces it with another K-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've never tried this and would like to join in, if I may, as it just so happens I do have a book with a letter K Author available. ; )

Yes, please...I've just done a quick Author check in between some Bookshelf updating before I start my Becky's Hugs Release Challenge [Becky's Hugs Sweet 16 (ResQqeek) http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/537779] Book Registration marathon, and I think the timing to join your rings would be perfect. I've actually been wanting to join in for quite sometime now, and there's no time like the present!!! ; ) My "Wild Releasing" days are getting more and more numbered, and this will give me an additional resource for moving some good books along for others to enjoy. THANK YOU for offering, iwillrejoice. ; )

Yes, please


OK. Done.

P.S. We also have the ABC Books (titles) rings, if you're interested.

Books arrived Sat. Sun. I was having bad asthma attacks off and on all day. Not sure but probably triggered by a nearby wildfire. Got sick while at work Mon. Went to bed when I got home Mon. afternoon and pretty much didn't get up til this morning. Still not 100% but did manage to get the books off. I chose Captains Courageous by Rudyard Kipling.

Popped in here to note that I posted the books today and saw the website went wonky with my last post. Deleted all the extras. Alas, I shredded the receipt before adding the tracking # here, so keeping my fingers crossed.

I have chosen a book registered by me that has made its way back to me, "Living a Life That Matters" by Harold S. Kushner. I already have a copy of this book. I do want to read it someday. I shall release the extra copy eventually.

I will mail these books on when I have an address.

I offered to send her the postage to pass them on to the next person. I hope that helps in some way.

While the two books that arrived will be great for someone, they are not something I will be able to read at this time. I already have BLM's address, and have a Post Office run to do in the next day or two, depending on the outcome of a meeting that takes place tomorrow. Once I have the Tracking # I will post it here. THANK YOU for organizing, and including me in some of your Bookrings, iwillrejoice!!! : ) Befre you get going with the next round, please remove me from the lists, as I am going to sit the next round out for all letters and perhaps try again sometime in the future. ; )

"I'LL BE BACK" ; D...just don't know when. I've been hit with another round of unexpected responsibilities, and while I have been using great restraint in not signing up for any more BC Fun right now, I do still have a couple of Bookboxes that I have been on the list for for quite some time. Seems like everything always starts arriving all at once, and I don't want to be delaying things for others. This past week has been something else, and I've not able to locate the Postal Receipt for the Tracking Number for these K Author Books, but I did just remember to make release notes on them. ; ) I think I mailed them Thursday, and it was going to take about a week, so BookLovinMama should have them this coming Thursday. ; )

Just found the receipt with this Tracking Number 9549011635117160125511 for these K Author Books. Before I came to post it here, I decided to check to see where "In-Transit" they were now. Anytime I check a Tracking Number I always get the same message, so I've always wondered if they ever update the information. By golly, it looks like they were "Delivered"@12:07 today, a day earlier than expected. ; )

Happy Summer Reading all...inside's the place to be here in Arizona at 102 degrees and going up to 118 in the next few days. Thank goodness it's a "dry" heat!!! ; D

I am keeping Dr. Death by Jonathan Kellerman.

I have reached out to MmeClinton and have her address. As I'm next in line for the L Authors, I will mail the K & L Authors together. Will post when the books are posted.

Left the confirmation number at home. I can find it if needed...

So rough getting back into the swing of things...

I have taken out Stephen King's The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon and also Mark R. Levin's Rescuing Sprite from the box and will replace with new books. I believe I now need to send the box back to the beginning....to iwillrejoice, whom I will contact to confirm! I am ready to mail out the K author Wednesday...

Just found them sitting in front of my front door. I received The Shadow Land by Elizabeth Kostova & Northwest Angle by William Kent Krueger. Thanks for sharing, everybody!

This concludes the K-Author book ring.
