This book has not been rated.

A US-only bookbox circulated for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered literature. Includes LGBT authors, themes, characters of any genre.

Order of Participants:
KateKintail (VA)
GoryDetails (NH)
kanaye44 (CT)
laevina (NY)
Scoobs-buddy (KY)
ealasaidmae (WV)
KateKintail (VA)<--box is back home!

Rules:
1. When you receive the box, make a journal entry for THIS BCID to let us know it's safe & sound with you.
2. Take some books out of the box, and put the same number of (or more) books back in.
3. PM the next person in the list above for his/her address.
4. Right before sending it out, please make another JOURNAL ENTRY(not release notes!) here stating what you took out and what you put in, so we can keep track of the box's contents.
5. Send the box along (Media Mail is fine, though you can send it faster if you want, and I'd recommend getting Delivery Confirmation since it's less than a dollar in cost and will help you keep track of it if it gets lost, but I'm going to make that optional).
6. If you need to be skipped for whatever reason let the person who PMed you know. I can add you back at the end of the list if you'd like.
7. Be kind and respectful- keep the box moving (don't sit and read all the books- that's not how a bookbox works).

The eagle has landed! The box is back home with me, safe and sound. There are a few books I put in there that returned to me :-( but it was a small ring so that's to be expected I suppose. I really hope everyone had fun during his/her leg and is enjoying some new books! Thank you all for making this bookbox such a success!

I shall journal all the books in the box tomorrow when I get home from Washington DC and the National Book Festival. BC in DC will be meeting up with the local Library Thing group. I look forward to seeing some authors speak at the festival and releasing 50 (very heavy) books throughout the day.

Looks like quite a few lovely books in the box that I look forward to reading and a few I shall be offering up on the LGBT BookRelay or wild releasing next weekend when I go back into DC to volunteer at the Washington DC AIDS Walk.

Thanks again, all! Happy reading!
(A few people have already PMed me about a round 2. I may do one down the road after I've had a chance to read a BUNCH from my TBR pile. If you're interested in round 2, let me know and I'll PM you in the future)
