Journal Entry 1 by LittleWhiteBird from Pasadena, California USA on Saturday, March 31, 2012

This book has not been rated.

As the title says, some wacky lists. Some are straightforward, some more extraordinary.


I'm using this light booklet as a journal to go with my Shrinking Audio Bookbox.

Update: Please check the forum thread (URL below) for exact rules. You can take out four more books than you put back in. E.g. take six out, put two in. 6-4=2.

It's here!

Can you believe it, the day after I went through my shelves for my own Audiobook VBB, I get *2* audiobookboxes in the mail?!? No fair! (LOL!)

I think I have a strategy, tho...

I've forgotten how many fewer books we're to put in to replace those we take out. I see Ms. JudySlump612 did 3-for-1, so I'll go with that.

Thanks for sharing!
