CLOSED Intl. Shrinking VBB - Round 10

Well I finally sent out the last book from round 9 so raring to get this new round started.

I have found that running a VBB helps me to reduce my TBR and pass on books I have already read too.

The idea is that you choose one or more books from the list and replace with one less book than the number you have chosen. So if you only want one book there is no requirement to replace at all.

When it is your turn I will PM you the current list for you to make your choices from. You let me know what you are taking and adding (or not, as the case may be) I update the list and so on. If you are unable to find a suitable book from the list I send then you can always choose another off my TBR or AVL shelf.

If you wish to join in or have any questions please post either on the forum or PM me.

All participants are welcome and are listed here:

2.catsalive
3.keeta1
4.greenbadger
5.Bookworm-lady
6.yorkshire-lass

The list of books is here. So far there are a few from the last round and I will be adding more soon.

I seem to be slow at organising most things these days ! Have added another book to the vbb. More to come soon .
Profile Image
The previous times it was very good.
Profile Image
It took me a lot longer to finish the tbr's than I had hoped. Luckily all bookcrossers are very patient!

Hopefully I will be much quicker this time.

There is space for a few more participants. I will wait a day or two to see if we get more interest and then make a start on getting the VBB moving

Ooooooo. Keeping mine crossed for you too ;-)
Profile Image
I've had a look at the books on offer and there is nothing on the list that I would like. Instead I've picked one from Diane-Fraser's TBR shelf, Fallen by Lauren Kate. I've contacted Diane about this and she is ok with it.
Profile Image
I've chosen a book from greenbadger: The island

So, Billbooks I believe this is good news for you, because it was only 2 weeks on the list and you're next :-)
Profile Image
Billbooks is to make their choice and then I will be closing this round.

If you would like to join in before it closes please let me know
Profile Image
All books from me have either been posted or will be posted out this week, with the exception of yorkshire-lass' choice which is currently very near the top of TBR. :-)

All books still left in from this round will either remain for the next or be swapped out with some new choices. I will contact owners of these books shortly before start up of the next round.

Round 11 is planned for end October/beginning November. Keep a look out for the new thread then .

Thanks to all for keeping this VBB going and joining in the fun - so pleased Bill got the book he was after. It was tense for a moment or too ;-)
Profile Image
Apologies for the delay!!!

Look out for the next round in the next few weeks.

Four those with books still in let m know if you wish to swap them out before the new round starts.

Thanks :-)

I should swap mine, as there has been no interest so far.
Let me see what I can find... :)
