[bc2018bdx] NSS - Not So Secret

We will also organize a NSS-Not so Secret-it has always been a tradition. It is a pleasure to offer gifts-but also to receive!

To participate it's simple:

- Sign up with your BC-nickname only by PM to http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/bc2018bdx

- Note in the PM your preferences, what you like, what you hate (to avoid surprises)
Nickname:
I like:
I do not like:

- Update your wish list on the BC site

- Prepare your package for your NSS-partner. There must be at least one book with BCID and at least one other gift. You make according to your possibilities and your means

- Put your gift on the table provided during the Convention.

With the BCID, your partner will discover your identity

Registration deadline: 10 March 2018
Between 10 and 15 March 2018, you will receive your partner's nickname, and his/her preferences. It gives you time to prepare your parcel, and make some nice gift package

And finally, you will discover on the NSS-table the package left for you

Quite a while ago (January 10th) I sent a PM through BC to the above mentioned profile to enlist in the NSS-Bordeaux.

When I did not hear anything, January 19th, I posted a message on the BC-website saying that I have tried to enlist for the NSS-Bordeaux. At that same day I resent the PM to the profile above mentioned: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/bc2018bdx/

I just checked the site, after reading that it has been updated, but I still miss my name in the list.
Did my PMs come through? Did I forget something that prevents you from entering me on the list?
Please let me know, so I can correct mistakes if there are any :-)

As this is my first convention, and my first NSS, i have a question about what to write in "i like/i don't like ":

Is it referring to the books or the non-book-part of the parcel? Or to both?

Both :-)

As I remember it from last year it is the non-book-part, and for the book-part, you make sure to have an updated wishlist on bookcrossing. Looking forward to seeing you at the convention:-)

I seem to be replying to this all over the place!
I like chocolate, fruit teas and trying various spices for cooking. I also enjoy knitting so anything to do with that. I don't like toffees or caramels.
I enjoy any book with a good storyline but I am not keen on romances , cowboy books or sci-fi.

I had counted on an assigned partner by the dates mentioned in the original post, to be able to look around for a nice gift for my partner and put together something nice, without being and feeling pressed and stressed because there's only little time to spend on it.

We are now March 22nd one whole week past the last date of the post, with a weekend coming up again. Easter is next week(end), I have illness in the family that eats quite a big chunk of my spare time, in my town there's no abundance of books in other languages and by the time I've decided on my gift, a book I would order online, won't arrive before our departure date. That date has been moved ahead, because the French railway has decided to plan strike days on our travelling days to and from the convention...
Unfortunately again there was no PM today with the name of my partner in NSS.

I have decided that I need a PM with the name of the person assigned to me no later than tomorrow evening (23/3), otherwise I will be withdrawing from the NSS.
