Round Four Starts Soon!!-- Books I've Read VBB -- US Only --COME JOIN!!

This Virtual Book Box will be comprised of books we've already read and is US only. I like the stipulation that we'll need to have read the books first as it keeps our "box" from being a sort of dumping ground, I think.

To participate:

*Post here that you're interested.
*PM me with the BC links to your two (or more!) seed books.
*When it's your turn, choose the books you want and replace them with at least the same amount.
*PM those who have the books you chose to make shipping arrangements.
*Please only join if you're pretty positive you can keep the commitment to the rest of the members of this box. Not sure if it's just the busyness of summer or what but I've had to remove several people in the last couple months. Everyone is welcome, just please follow through!

Participants:

*rhythmbiscuit
*freezone
*dabercro
*labmomnm
*booklady331

I guess I better get reading!
Profile Image
Excellent! I'm glad you're in!
Profile Image
Except that I just gave away all the books I had that I have read. I'll DM you some titles, once I have finished them. I'm reading a hardcover right now, and it's very involving, so I think it will be done soon.

Great, freezone!

Ann1244: You'll need to send the link to each registered book you're including in the virtual bookbox. That way participants can get an idea of what the book is about before choosing it. Make sure to PM me if you have further questions! :)
