Got the box today..honestly not too much in it that grabbed legomeister - we lost our copy of Harriet the Spy so he's taking that. Spooky Kids is staying here too. We're Jewish so the Christian books didn't work for us :-(
I'm going to take out some of the duplicates just to get some variety in the box - I might donate them to my son's classroom library where they're sure to get some action.
Will PM doveilibri when I've got the box ready to send back.

We were all excited to have this arrive today. We have already gone through it and made our choices and replaced the books that we removed. We will be mailing this along on May 1, in 3 days, when I will be going to the post office.

Just a note- Only 8 of the 13 books that came in the box were listed in the paper journal. I went ahead and added the other 5 that were missing from the list. Hope that is okay.

This came back to me today in the mail. It wasn't returned, it was mailed to me instead of the person it was supposed to be. I took it back to the post office. The guy there couldn't figure it out, so he lightly crossed off my return address so it could still be read if needed, but wouldn't be accidentally picked up by the auto scanner. So it is off again, hopefully soon to be at the next destination.

Thank you guinaveve and DoveiLibri for letting me particpate in this bookbos. I have been most remiss in not getting it registered sooner, but I hope to have it on its way in the next day or so. And another journal entry then. Thanks.

The bookbox left here on Friday to travel to Scout-Finch. I really enjoyed getting to read a few new books in this genre, and my daughter, and possibly later my son, will enjoy them too.

Thanks all!

It's here!I think we'll be taking out one book and putting in two to add a little for the older-skewing box recipients...stay tuned!

(embarrassed)Update 9/13 - I owe everybody an apology - this box went AWOL because my clean-freak husband stashed it away in a closet which was clearly not my BookCloset where I would have found it long ago - time went by and I plum forgot about it until the kind and gentle Doveilibri inquired as to its whereabouts and I tore the house apart, eventually finding it. At the exact time my son was out of school sick for a week. Well, I'm adding a few "bonus" books and taping it up to go out Monday.

I received this box a few days ago and just sent it on to cbostler today. I took out a few and added quite a few. The journal that goes with the box has somehow been lost so if anyone has it, please mail it home to doveilibri. Thanks and thanks doveilibri for letting me play! ;)

I received the Fun and Adventure Shoebox Bookbox today. It has a nice assortment of interesting books for older children. The reading levels are too difficult for my second grade students, Oakcrest-Eagles, but I have plans for some of the books in the box. I'll make my selections this week and report online.
Thanks!

I am taking three books that were registered by Doveilibri and will be sending them to 4libros. She has a Halloween release planned. I'm adding three of my favorite books for older children, Holes by Louis Sachar, and Hatchet and Brian's Winter by Gary Paulsen.

Doveilibri, as far as I can tell, all the books that were in the box when you mailed it to the first participant have been exchanged. You can look forward to a shoebox full of great new books. Thanks for asking me to participate.

The books will be hand-delivered to Paulsbooks on Saturday.
