Journal Entry 1 by ladybug74 from Dothan, Alabama USA on Monday, December 01, 2008

This book has not been rated.

This bookbox will be for U.S. members only due to shipping costs. This is the first bookbox that I have started, so please help me with making it a successful one!

The Rules:
1. Leave a journal entry for the box when you receive it and again after you make your choices. Please list the books that you take out and put in the box in your journal entry. The BCID number is on a card in the box.
2. Please don't forget to journal each individual book that you remove from the box.
3. Put in the same number of books that you take out of the box (or more).
4. Please keep the box no longer than 2 weeks. If something unexpected happens and you are delayed a bit, please let me know. (I do understand that the unexpected can happen to us all sometimes.)
5. Please don't let more than 3 books by the same author be in this box at any one time (with the exception of anthologies by various authors).
6. If the box becomes damaged or worn, please replace it. You can get free boxes at most stores that will work great for a bookbox.

The box will start out with the following books:
The Attraction by Douglas Clegg
The Lake by Richard Laymon
Best Friends by Ruby Jean Jensen

SCA2003 received this box about 4 months ago and journaled it again about 2 months ago, but has not been heard from since. I have tried sending several PMs and have posted on the forum, but have received no reply. Therefore I will consider this box to be lost!

ringlord59 has generously offered a box of books to replace this box, since he was next on the list. He will mail to the next participant. I will add myself after the last person and send the box back to ringlord59 after I am done with it at the end. Thanks so much for your generous offer to help get this box going again! :)

This box has not been journaled since December and I have made multiple attempts to get in contact with angeeaustin, so I will assume it is another "lost" box. I apologize to ringlord59, who was so kind to replace this box after it disappeared the 1st time, and now it has happened again! I also apologize to everyone else who had books in this box or the 1st that went missing. I have had such bad luck with people taking my bookboxes and not passing them on that I will probably not do any more. It really sucks that a few people have to ruin it for so many others. :( Maybe our books will be journaled some day. Who knows where they might show up? In the mean time, it really sucks that yet another box has gone missing.

I was thinking the same thing Ladybug.
Not a good book box experience.
