ABC Authors Book Rings - US version - Letter R

The way it works is like this: I'll start the ring out by posting 2 books whose author's last name starts with the letter R to the first person on the list. That person takes *one* book out & replaces it with another R-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? :-)

Names will be shuffled between each round.

These are probably the books I was thinking of when I said that was fast. I've pm ed, southernfryed. She is up next for this and the B books so if it's ok with everyone and it doesn't take too long for the B's to arrive I'll probably wait and send them all together. Either way, with the holiday Monday, it would be Tues. at the earliest.

Does anyone have information?


I expect it's from lane1088. She doesn't seem to be registering her books. Just go ahead & register it if you want, Dove-i-libri. Sorry this happened to you.

Are you sure you want to delete this item? It cannot be undone.
