This book has not been rated.

A lot of fun - thank you, KateKintail, for starting this! Here's what I chose:
- Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
- Mysterious Mr. Quin
- End of the Pier
- Schindler's List
- Lolita

And here's what I put in:
- Sleeping Cruelty
- Blood and Smoke
- Hanged Man's Song
- Forrest Gump

I apologize for taking more books, and more cassettes, than I replaced. But since the stated intent of this box is to disperse the books, I might as well get an early start. And I simply could not figure out how to get all the books back in the box without taking an extra! Kate, you must do 3D puzzles for fun, in a poor light and with a marching band practicing outside your window. Anyway, there's still plenty of good stuff left.

I got the box in today's mail. Wow, it must be close to 40 lbs, I thought the mailman was going to get a hernia:-) I had to push the box in my house with my hip. Lots of good choices but it's going to take a few days for me to go through it and find out what I want. I like to ask the next person if it would be ok to ship to you in two different boxes?
hyphen 8, I don't know how you did it but the box arrived in great shape. I'll get back to y'all in the next few days with my choices. 


Journal Entry 35 by keno-mom at Georgetown, Texas USA on Saturday, July 05, 2014

10 out of 10

I just realized this box is a ray so it looks like these books be staying with me unless someone else would like to join. Thanks hyphen 8 for the extra books! I'll give it a week and if I don't hear from anyone I'll put them on my bookshelf, and when I'm done with them I'll pass them on to v8cars in Australia, a fellow BC'er with vision problems.
Great box y'all it's been fun.
