Animal Kingdom Bookring (Closed and Travelling)

How it works:
**Please PM me if you want to join**
This ring is for Europe only.

I will send two books where the title contains the name of an animal, bird, insect or fish to the first person on the list. That person takes one of those books and replaces that book with another book with an animal, bird, insect or fish in the title. Then that person will send those two books to the next person on the list and so on. Please tell on this thread only which book you took out.
The books are a surprise. Do not tell what book you are sending.
Note: This ring DOES NOT INCLUDE mythical animals such as dragon, phoenix, etc.

Profile Image
You're both in. Thanks for joining.
Profile Image
If not I'll get it on its way tomorrow.
Profile Image
Parcel arrived safely. I think I will take out Sick as a Parrot.
Profile Image
I've got to read a replacement! Sorry, Tanamo, but I got caught up with reading books for the Wishlist tag - carried away with the fun of it all! - but am on the case, so the BookRing should be on its way in a few days.
Profile Image
Going into the post to the next on the list. I took out Some Tame Gazelle by Barbara Pym.
Profile Image
Greenbadger - have you received this ring?
Profile Image
No, it hasn't reached me.
Profile Image
Cross-patch has proof of posting so I've asked her to get the PO to track it. Here's hoping it turns up.
Profile Image
to Cross-patch marked 'not called for' and I'm waiting to see if she is prepared to send again.
Profile Image
I can't understand what has happened with these books - we've not had a card, and I've checked with the Post Office who say they've not had a parcel for me which hasn't been collected.
Profile Image
Back on its travels!
Profile Image
On Thursday I got a card from the post office to say I had a parcel. Just been to the parcel collection office and they have no trace of it! I think this must be the animal bookring but I don't understand what is going on!

Unfortunately, Cross-patch, they are not able to look up the proof of postage numbers you gave me. I'm not sure what is the point of them giving you these numbers in that case!

Anyway, the nice chap in the parcel collection office is going to speak to the postman and call me on Monday.
Profile Image
And despite the Post Office assuring me that they had the parcel somewhere and would find it and get it to me, it's been returned to Cross-patch again. Normally they are so reliable so I don't understand what's going on!

Anyway, I've agreed with Tanamo and Cross-patch that I'll restart this ring.
Profile Image
Its certainly been a frustrating time, the only plus point being that the parcel didn't disappear into the ether completely and has landed back with Cross-patch who will give the books to me when we next meet. I may start another round of this ring with them at some future date. In the meantime thank you for restarting this ring. Also I'll be passing the "Authors beginning with Y ring" onto you when I get rid of this cold and get to the PO so I hope we've worn out all the postal gremlins and that this parcel makes it ok.
Profile Image
I can't tell you how relieved I was when the Christmas all year round BookBox that I sent to the next recipient on Thursday arrived safe and sound at its destination!
Profile Image
The restarted ring is now on its way to yorkshire-lass.

I'm still not at all happy with Royal Mail but as you say at least the original books did show up. Let's hope there are no more problems with this ring!
Profile Image
Sorry these arrived two days ago, but I've not been able to get on line until today.
I will try to get them on their way early next week.

What book did you take out?
Profile Image
Sorry I've just spotted this post, I went away on holiday just after doing this and must have forgotten to post here.

I took out, How To Fossilise Your Hamster: And Other Amazing Experiments For The Armchair Scientist.

I will send the books to Billbooks as soon as possible.

13 Nov. 2017: Billbooks wrote me that he has to pass on this ring because "there are a few personal issues that are taking up my time". So I will contact the next participant - ReetPetite.
Profile Image
Did ReetPetite respond?
Profile Image
Yes, ReetPetite sent me the address. I sent the Ring to her on the 14th November.
