The 1st Professions Bookbox went missing for a while and was assumed to be lost, so several generous bookcrossers (taaza, waterfalling, & hypen8) all offered books to start this box back up. Just when I got ready to send it out, the 1st box showed back up. For this reason, I am splitting the Professions Bookbox into 2 boxes. The first box can be found here.

This bookbox will be for U.S. members only due to shipping costs.

Here is how it will work:
1. You can put in any book that has a profession in the title, but the book does not have to be about that profession. You can also be creative and put in books that have professions embedded in other words in the title.
2. Please journal the box when it arrives and again when you send it back out. Don't forget to journal each individual book that you remove from the box.
3. Please let me know if you see any known stallers on the list to receive this box. I will not tell who told me if you wish to remain anonymous.
4. Please replace the box if it becomes damaged or worn.
5. Take out as many books as you wish, but please put in the same number of books that you remove (or more.)
6. No children's books, romances (such as Harlequin or Silhouette), Westerns, or text/reference books.
7. No more than 3 books by the same author are allowed in the box at any one time.

Please send a PM to me if you have any questions!

What an awesome day! It was Friday, it was payday, I only had to work half a day at the office, and I came home to find TWO bookboxes waiting for me! Yip! I will go through the box this weekend & will hopefully have it back in the mail on Monday. I will journal again when I make my selections, and one last time to let everyone know when the box is back on its way.

I apologize to all who had books in this box, but it looks like it won't be returning home to me. It arrived with the last bookbox participant, Bibliocrates, on September 1, 2009, over 7 months ago, and still has not made it back. I was called impatient when I asked about it back in January, after 4 months had already passed. Maybe your books will all be journaled again some day. In the mean time, I am counting this one as a loss. Seven months.
