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

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

Don't forget to check with perryfran for his new address! :-)

Always a good idea to check that someone is ready before you ship, as well as to confirm their address.

Thanks.

M Books Sent

I kept them around for a few days hoping one would speak to me. No luck so I sent them both on their way to Tabby-Cat-Owner.

No problem. My daughter is getting married in September and I don't have much time for reading anyway. :-)

The M authors are safely in my hands!
(They arrived packaged with the V titles, so I will be posting on that forum thread, too.) I have chosen a book - A Scattered Life http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14470041 - and have added my own M author to the package and will send for the address of MmeClinton tonight! Will pop in and let you know when I've sent the books along!
