This bookbox is for cassettes. Abridged or Unabridged. Fiction or Nonfiction.

This journal (packing slip) will be traveling with the cassette audio bookbox. Please journal here when you receive the book box, AND make a controlled release note (or journal entry) with the tracking (confirmation) number and the date the box is shipped to the next participant. Please journal only the books that you keep, please do not journal every book in the box. I don’t care if you ship by media mail, but I do request that you use delivery confirmation with whatever shipping method you use. I do request that you ship the box to the next person quickly. I think one week to ten days is plenty of time to take books out and put books in. Please check this journal entry for shipping order changes. Please trade fairly. Please replace at least the same number of books that you take out. For example: If you choose 10 books from the box, then replace at least 10 books. English only please. No duplicate titles in the box at the same time. For example if “The Notebook” by Nicholas Sparks is in the box, then please don’t include a second copy of “The Notebook”. If you have any questions or concerns please message me. If your life gets hectic, please let me know if you would like to be moved down the list, or if you would like to be skipped. Thank you to everyone for participating. Have fun!!

There is a "packing slip" in the box. Feel free to add any information that you would like to share. Do you have a good recipe? Local photo or information? Something about yourself? Pets? When did you join BXing?

The book box landed on my porch with a big rip in the side - I don't think any of the books escaped, but just started pulling them from the hole and journaling, before I finally got smart and read the instructions! I've spent the day sorting and actually listened to 2 books, so they will go back in after I make a journal entry. I will have the box off again by the end of the week.

This large box was speedier than media mail usually is: it took only 2 weeks to get to me rather than the standard 3. I like the colorful journal and I'll be sure to leave a note in there.

At least four of the books in this box have passed through my hands before, not counting the five I actually registered. I'm thinking about taking out some of the ones I started and donating them to fieryfairy for her chemo center project rather than having them make the rounds again..but I haven't decided yet.

I'll try to figure out what I'm putting in and taking out as quickly as possible so I can get the box moving again. 


Journal Entry 21 by winghyphen8wing from Honolulu, Hawaii USA on Sunday, April 04, 2010

Putting in:

We Were the Mulvaneys
Fear Nothing
I'll Be Watching You
The Last Voyage of Somebody the Sailor
Dragon
On Wings of Eagles
The Probable Future
Without Remorse
Darkness

Taking out:

Pearl Cove
The Thief of Always
52 Pick-Up
Star Trek the Next Generation: Contamination
Star Trek: Prime Directive
The Outsiders
Castaways of the Flying Dutchman
Felicia's Journey

This box weighed 18 pounds when I got it and it looks like it weighs 18 or 19 pounds now. It will be going out again once I know where to send it. :)

sp4home says she doesn't need/want any of her original books back, so I'm editing my selections a bit.

In addition to the ones mentioned before, I will remove the 11 audiobooks from the original list still in the box and will try to find new homes for them:

Affairs: Before and After
Are You There Alone?
The Brethren
Don’t sweat the Small Stuff in Love
Improving Communication in Your Marriage
I Still Do
Omerta
The Perfect Storm
Politically Correct Holiday Stories
10 Stupid Things Couples Do
Unabomber

And put in these:

When the Wind Blows
Back Story

And *not* take:

The Outsiders
Felicia's Journey
Pearl Cove

So in the end I'll be taking 16 books out of the box and putting in 11. That leaves 39 books in the box, and one of those appears to actually be a set of 4, so hopefully that's good value for everyone. :)

Of course, I haven't actually re-sealed the box yet, so it's possible another audiobook might sneak into the box in the next couple of days, but I'll get it mailed out again soon.
