ABC Authors Book Rings - US version - Letter O

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 O to the first person on the list. That person takes *one* book out & replaces it with another O-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 received a message from tabby-cat-owner a while back verifying my mailing info but have not seen the books.

I am sorry that I didn't mail them sooner but for the past few weeks I have been dealing with a variety of situations that made it impossible for me to mail these books.

I've already added my book and will contact BookLady331 to see how we will pass the books. Maybe a get-together is in order.

... Even though we only live a few miles from each other. If I waited until we could get together, it would be way after new year's. Better to get these going now. I'll add the tracking number when he gets home from the post office!

It surely can't be taking over 2 weeks just to cross the bridge. On the other hand, with our mail service, who knows?
