ABC (Alphabet) Bookrings - US version - Books Beginning with the Letter Y

Here's how it works:

I'll start the ring out by posting 2 books whose title starts with the letter Y to the first person on the list. Articles (a, an, or the) don't count -- look to the next word. So, for example, "A Streetcar Named Desire" would be considered an S-book. "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" is a T-book.

So, I send the package with 2 Y-books to the first person on the list. That person takes *one* book out & replaces it with another Y-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? :-)

I don't see " delayed". I see that it went to Seattle, then to New Jersey, then headed back to Seattle. Hopefully it will be delivered soon!

But good news, the books arrived today! I chose A Year in Provence by Peter Mayle. I have a Y book ready, let's see who is next. Ahh, TCO, I'll get that mailed on Monday.

I have chosen "The Year of Magical Thinking" by Joan Didion.

I will send the books on to the next person asap.

I almost confused this book ring with a bookbox I am expecting. I received this ring along with the W books in the same box. A heads-up would have been nice. I will be sending both books out again, as soon as I get the address for the next person.

I did send you two PMs about both bookrings. Sorry about the confusion but I don't think that it is NICE to criticize me on a public forum like this.

OK, it's over. An obvious miscommunication. Maybe the BC PMs failed (again).

Let's move on.

The Y books came yesterday, I will PM the nest in line and send them on their way soon.

Are you sure you want to delete this item? It cannot be undone.
