Journal Entry 1 by winghyphen8wing from Honolulu, Hawaii USA on Tuesday, October 20, 2009

This book has not been rated.

This bookbox journal will be traveling soon with a mostly cassette audiobox. I'm not going to set a lot of rules for this, just these:

1. Please journal when you receive the box.

2. List what you're taking out and putting in. It doesn't have to be an exact exchange with the number of cassettes/discs matching, but try to be fair. For example, don't take all the CDs and replace with cassettes.

a. I'd like it if you'd list what you're taking out & putting in here but

b. Please make a note in the little pink journal book too - it's supposed to be a packing list.

c. If you'd like to write where you're from or any other notes in the journal, feel free.

d. Please do get your money's worth for the postage; take as many from the box as you wish
as long as the replacements pretty much even things out. :D
3. Journal to say the box & journal are on their way again, hopefully within a couple of weeks

4. Send by whatever method works for you: media mail is fine.

5. Please leave this journal in the box for next person.



Mailed to the first person Saturday 10/24. Media mail from here usually takes about 3 weeks; YMMV.

Current order: please check here before sending on the box, just in case there are additions/changes

I thought an update might be appreciated.

I have listened to:
Nature Girl by Carl Hiaasen 4 CD's has some damaged areas - might just need cleaning
Lucky Man Michael J Fox 5 CDs
(I have not journaled these CDs yet - I don't have internet at home yet but will bring BCID to work and do)

I will be adding Wicked by Gregory Macguire which is 14 or 16 CDs - has some damaged areas - might just need cleaning

I will probably take:
Fury by Salman Rushdie 8 CD's and maybe a cassette set or two from the box.

I hope to make decisions and get box in mail over weekend.

Feb 12: We have had quite the series of snowstorms and unfortunately I didn't get this mailed before they hit. I will try to get this ready to mail tonight and take to the PO in the morning. I still need to journal Lucky Man and Nature Girl also. Sorry limited internet access is makinig it hard to stay on top of my Bookcrossing entries.

Sadly, I learned that wamstreet passed away some time after she received this box. I have not been able to contact her family to ask if they've found the box or the journal, so I will try to start a replacement box at some time in the near future. My apologies to those still waiting for the box.

Edit: Here's the replacement box.
