US ONLY---HobbitGlen's (Older) Children's Bookbox

My son, Bookcrosser HobbitGlen, would like to start a children's bookbox for ages (approximately) 8-13. Chapter books, nonfiction, etc. This would be great for teachers, homeschoolers, and anyone looking to swap out 4th-8th grade books. PLEASE no teen subject material.

I'll join! All genres, I assume?
Profile Image
Yes, all genres are fine as long as they're age appropriate. I'm glad you're in!

I have some appropriate titles I'd be happy to contribute. How large a box is HobbitGlen thinking about, and how many books would be needed?

Thank you! We're going to do a medium sized box---hoping to be around $8 or so to ship. He'd like 20 or so.

Sounds great!!! ; ) I know I have some Science related books among those I do have, just have to check ages. ; ) Should I mail them to you to help get the box started? If so, please PM your address. ; )

Wonderful, thank you! PMing you now.

I will try to figure out how to age-check the books I have.

Would HobbitGlen prefer that the books be mostly boy-oriented (male leading characters, etc.)? Or he will be sharing the books with girls also?
Profile Image
He's got 5 sisters and 3 brothers so boy and girl books will be welcome. Thanks!

When are you thinking of sending out the box? I'd better start reading faster!

I can wait a little bit. I have a couple people sending books to us to add to it and they've not arrived yet. Should I check with you in a couple weeks?

Yes, please. I definitely need to get some reading done first. :)

Thanks for verifying that I was inDEED, using the correct address. WHAT an adVENture!!! : ) Judging by the fact that the package has been to FIVE cities since it left here (for the SECond time!!!), it has also had an adventure in and of itself just getting there, but has apparently been delivered...HURRAY for the USPS!!! ; )
