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

Here's how it works:

I'll start the ring out by posting 2 books whose title starts with the letter Z 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 Z-books to the first person on the list. That person takes *one* book out & replaces it with another Z-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? :-)

Decided to keep "The Zero Factor" by William Johnson. This one looks a little dated but may still be a good thriller. The other book was pretty much outside my reading interests.

I'll contact the next in line and get these moving again soon.

As BooksnBeer is going to be out of town for a few weeks, I've moved her down the list for another chance later. No point in holding things up for everyone, I'd rather keep the books moving.

Which brings up a good discussion point... If you know you're going to be out of town when contacted for your address, please ask me to just move you down the list. That way, things will keep moving, & you'll get another chance later., when you're available.

Thanks, everyone!
