This book has not been rated.

To celebrate my first year as a Book Crosser. This book box has two tiers.
1. A book box that will travel - UK only
2. A book box that is virtual - for those who might be restricted by geography or just fancy a book box without the logistics of getting the box to the Post Office, or you can play both!

Rules:
Once you get the box take out what you want and replace with your choice of books, and just pass it on, prefabably within a month.

Once the box starts the virtual leg of its journal I will PM each participant with the BCID of the box so that each person can see what books are in the virtual box.
1. Please respond to me via PM (or email)to confirm that you have received the box details
2. Please make a JE stating what books you are taking out and what you are adding.
3. I will then arrange for the books you are removing to be sent to you.
4. Those taking part in the virtual book box should be aware that this might involve posting out of the UK - Surface is fine!
5. Have fun! - this is the first virtual box I have organised, so hopefully all will go to plan - Enjoy!

Ok... I've snaffled seven (yep, count them, seven!) books and replaced with another seven. I've also changed the box to one that didn't need as much padding. Twicky also popped round and snaffled a couple and replaced them (with Anglersrest's permission) but he'll journal that himself when he gets back from piddling around in the hills or whatever he's doing this weekend.

Anyway, the books I snaffled:

A Perfect Wife - Cristine Odone
Time's Arrow - Martin Amis
Bitter Fruit - Brian Keaney
Best of Friends - Cathy Kelly
The Pleasure of My Company - Steve Martin
Carmichael: City of Heroes - Jason Keith Platt
A Brother's Blood - Michael C. White

I'm replacing with:

Destinations - Sheila O'Flanagan
Bridget Jones' Diary - Helen Fielding
Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha - Roddy Doyle
Overtime - Tom Holt
Every Good Girl - Judy Astely
Dancing with Mules - Morag Prunty
Demon Seed - Dean Koontz

As I already have Cyzaki's address, I shall post the box off today! In about an hour in fact! Thanks for organising the box, Anglersrest!

I left some bits and bobs out of the bookbox - doh! Posted on separately today but I noticed a cute ducky keyring and with a screen name like mine, how could I resist that? Popped in some bookcrossing bookmarks in the hope someone may need some along the line... Sorry for being so crap but the bits and bobs should reach Cyzaki before she gets back to her home!
