Rules Of The Box


1. Please keep original size. The whole point of this box is to keep it small and not too expensive to post.
2. One in, one out as usual uinless the book you want to put in is fat or heavy. As a general rule I'd like to keep 5-7 books in here.
3. No sci-fi, fantasy or Mills and Boon types.
4. As it's so small try not to fill it with one genre. I don't mind one chick-lit but I'd hate to get a box full. See what's in there to start with and use your judgement.
6. I don't have a problem with people hanging on to boxes for a while, but be sensible. I've just lost two boxes and would hate to lose another.
7. Seven rules! That's too many. Just enjoy it.

Arrived back today, thanks everyone.

I'm not sure that this was an unqualified success. I was a bit disillusioned with big expensive to post boxes so I started this one with just 7 good recent fiction novels. It has returned with 13 books making it as expensive as normal sized box and too expensive to post on to Europe.
None of the books that made it back are what I would call recent fiction, only three of them published this side of 2000, I really don't think that the contents are worth the cost of postage to EU.

I will journal each book individually and keep the two or three good ones for the continuing box.
