[CLOSED] 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.

Just wondering where the Y-books are... mrsjones?

I received this message from mrsjones on Jan. 29:
I have been traveling quite a bit and my daughter is taking care of the books for me. I'll have her drop them in the mail asap.

However, I still have not received the books. I sent her a followup PM today. Hopefully, they are in the mail.

mrsjones informed me that the books were mistakenly sent to my old address. I thought they might be forwarded on to me in California but I talked to my letter carrier today who told me that media mail only gets forwarded for six months. Since I have been at my new address for more than six months, the books were probably delivered to the residents of my old address. They may or may not be returned to sender.

Anyway, to get this moving again, I will go ahead and send two Y books to the next in line. When or if I receive the original package, I will just keep them and post the titles here. Hopefully, this is okay with everyone.

I will contact the next in line to get these moving!

Thanks!

Tell you what, when the books come to me, I'll take one out & replace it, then send them on to you. That way you'll at least get a turn.

I'm still hoping they make it there. They haven't been returned to me.
I should have asked to be skipped since I was out of the country for most of this year so far. :(

I chose A Yellow Raft in Blue Water by Michael Dorris and got them right back out.

I received the original Y books that were sent by mrsjones to my old address in Utah. The shipping label was dated Jan. 27th and the forwarding label March 14th. Not sure what took the post office so long to forward but all's well that ends well! The books received are:

A Year Down Yonder by Richard Peck
You'll Never Nanny in This Town Again by Suzanne Hansen

Not sure if I will read either of these but if not they will get passed along some way.

Note to iwillrejoice: you can now remove me from the end of this ring. Thanks!

So, you don't want to finish with the Z-books? OK, well, thanks for being a part of these rings!

ETA: Oh, I see. You've already taken your turn with the Z's! D'oh. :-)
