Intl. OR even no postage!! :)) Shrinking VBB - Round 11 - nearing the end


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.

I still remember your Shrinking Bookbox. It was one of the first I received in the post when I joined.

Welcome :)

Wow! I am honoured that the list has tempted you, after so many years of being a BC member.

Profile Image
Yes I am going to get it moving! :-)

It is still open for new participants as we have more books than people this time. Don't forget if you can't see something on the list you fancy there maybe something in my available or tbr shelves.
