Received in today's mail. Thanks waterfalling for your providing this copy so "March" can continue as a bookray! This is actually the second time I have restarted this ray - hope this 3rd copy is the charm!

Beautifully written account of Mr. March, the father of the "Little Women." Brooks' prose is eloquent -- the novel gives a vivid account of some of the tragedies of the Civil War. Highly recommend!

This is a second replacement bookray for my original copy that is stalled. For prior entries see this JE.

If you are interested in joining this bookray, please PM me. Bookray will remain open until last person has the book.


. Griete from Switzerland (Europe only)
. QuantumAyla from UK (international)<----Book is here!
. NICNIC2 from UK (UK, international if needed)
. moonblue from South Africa (international)

Note: Order is subject to change based on shipping preferences and others joining the bookray.

How the bookray works:
* Someone will PM you for your address, PM them back and provide your address
* When you receive the book, please make a journal entry letting everyone know that you received it
* Put the book at the top of your TBR pile (under other rings/rays that arrived first)
* Read the book (take your time and enjoy the book, don't feel rushed to finish it but remember OTHERS ARE WAITING!)
* When the end is in sight, check the book's journal and PM the next person to get their address
* Finish the book, make another journal entry and let everyone know what you thought of the book
* Send the book to the next person on the list (please use the cheapest shipping method available), make release notes (Controlled Release) or journal entry to let everyone know that it's in the mail
* END OF THE RAY, The last person on the ray could try and continue the ray or just give/mail the book to someone else who might like to read it, perhaps a RABCK - look at wish list web site, or release it into the wild.

This book appears to be stalled with QuantumAyla who does not respond to PMs! I have restarted this ray twice already and do not want to try again. Sorry to everyone who did not get a chance to read this. Hoping it will move on in the future.

Received this morning! Thanks for posting it on to me. :D

I already read a little and it looks like it should be a very interesting book.

Bumping it to the top of mount TBR.

This book has washed ashore at the Lost Book Island after not being heard from for many months. This new arrival will be shown to a room and be allowed a bit of rest before being introduced to the many fun things to do here at the island.

All around there are books sipping cool drinks under shady palms while other books participate in a wide variety of beach sports. There is plenty of sand, surf and sun here for all of the lost and wayward books to enjoy.

It is hoped that very soon a new journal entry will come to rescue this book from the island and send it back out into the BookCrossing world so that it may continue on its journey. It is hoped that the new journal entry will tell all the interested parties where this book has been this long time and where it will be traveling to next.

Many, many apologies for letting this book stall with me for so long.

I dropped out of Bookcrossing completely for a few years and no longer had access to the email linked to my account.

I also thought that this book had got mixed into a box of things intended for a local charity shop and accidentally given away! Luckily this wasn't the case and I recently found it.

So I'll be contacting the members of this book ray to see if they're still interested, if not I'll offer it as a Ray or a RABCK. 

Are you sure you want to delete this item? It cannot be undone.
