[COMPLETE] Round 3 - Virtual Book Box (VBB) of debut novels

Hi all

I love new fiction and I'm looking for some like minded fellow BCers sign ups for Round 3 of International Virtual Book Box of debut novels, to kick off mid January 2018 to give us some reading time.
Round One is here: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/506860
Round 2 is here: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/519530

Essentially the BookBox will feature debut novels that have been published between 2013- 2018 inclusive.

I will start the VBB off with a minimum of 5 titles, which will mean that I get 'what is left' after everyone has had a turn.

*Remember that this is international therefore you may have to post overseas.....although snail mail is absolutely fine.
Limit yourself to how many books you can afford to send overseas, when choosing how many to take out when it's your turn.

Here are the guidelines to help this VBB run smoothly:

1) I will be the keeper of the master list of books. Once the VBB gets under way, I will send the list of books to the participate who's turn it is via a private message (pm). The list will also be added in the forum thread (scroll to the bottom - I will keep editing as it changes).

2) Once you receive a PM from me with the current list of books being offered, you try to make your selections and additions within 7 days. If there are problems, send me a pm and I will move you in the list or skip you if you want. If I do not receive a PM from you within 7 to 10 days, you'll be skipped and the list will be moved on to the next recipient.

3) Once you've made your decision on which books you'd like to take from the list and which ones you'd like to add (you can take as many as you like, but you must put back in as many as you take out), please send a PM with the titles and authors and links of the books you'll be taking from the list and also for the ones you'll be adding, so that I can keep the list of books current to send off to the next person.

4) I will send a PM to the person who is holding the books from your selection, and make arrangements with them to mail you the book you want to read. Please be timely in mailing your books out once your book is selected. (Although there can be extenuating circumstances, please try to mail off your book within 2 weeks from the date of the request.)

5) Once you've received the book(s) you've requested, please post to this thread to let us all know you've received the requested book(s). I want to make sure that people are both sending and receiving books :-)


Participants* :
Lamilla
Bookfrogster
Mcsar
Annimanni
Keeta1
Tabby-cat-owner
Ann1244

*Participants list is in no particular order. I will raffle to determine the order

Update:

Just a quick update to advise that the participant order has been done - I did rig this slightly, and put Tabby-cat-owner 1st in line. Reason being is that I'll be putting all 6 starter books in, and ideally would like to not have to pay international shipping for all 6, so given Tabby-cat-owner is in the USA, I've added them first in line.

So taking Tabby-cat-owner out of the list I used List Randomizer ( https://www.random.org/lists/ ) to give us the order.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
There were 6 items in your list. Here they are in random order:
Ann1244
Lamilla
Bookfrogster
Keeta1
Annimanni
Mcsar
IP: 75.174.221.116
Timestamp: 2018-01-12 02:46:06 UTC
---------------------------------------------------------------------

I swear this is how it was spit out, and lucky for me it put the only other USA participant 1st up on the list!

So the official participant order is:

Tabby-cat-owner (USA)
Ann1244 (USA)
Lamilla (Belarus)
Bookfrogster (Scotland)
Keeta1 (New Zealand)
Annimanni (Finland)
Mcsar (Canada)


So get reading folks so as many books as possible will be AVL when it comes to your turn. TBR is ok, but ideally would like as many as possible ready to send so that its fair to everyone.

I will send (and post here) the list to the first participant on 15th January 2017.

A big thank you to J4shaw for sending me a copy of this book "The Boat Runner" by Devin Murphy published 2017, as Ann1244 never did.

It wasn't necessary, but thank you so much :)
