This book has not been rated.

This will be the "journal" for the CD Audiobook Bookbox. You should be able to find the BCID# written somewhere inside the box. General guidelines:

-- Please make a journal entry when you receive the box & again when you ship it off to the next person. (Delivery confirmation is not mandatory, but recommended.)
-- Since I'm not including an actual journal within the box, please go ahead & list the names of the audiobooks you're removing & putting in.
-- The box is starting out with a mix of abridged & unabridged. Please try to replace with the same type you remove. I realize it's hard to replace with the exact same number of discs, but just do the best you can.
-- Please replace the box if necessary. If you're replacing the box, DON'T FORGET TO WRITE THE BCID# somewhere inside.

Ack! My apologies. I remember taking out an audio, replacing an audio, sticking an address on the package and taking it to the post office.

All but the last actually happened. I just found the box and another BC book that I thought I mailed a few weeks ago right after k00kaburra sent me her address (she's prompt, I'm not!). I'm going to try to get to the post office today. If not, I'll mail this on Monday (Feb. 28).

I already have quite a few of the audios in the box, but one caught my eye/ear. I took out:

The Story of a Marriage by Andrew Sean Greer (UN, 6 CDs)

I put in:
Conversations With My Dog by Zig Ziglar (UN, 4 CDs)

and

Heir Apparent by Vivian Vande Velde (UN, 8 CDs, download)

Sorry again for the delay.

- Good Husband of Zebra Drive, Alexander McCall Smith

I didn't count up the discs, but everything I added was unabridged, and the box was full enough I had trouble fitting everything in.

The box arrived today, many thanks! Unfortunately, I've read a large number of the books, or else the cases had rubber bands around them (and I'm allergic to latex/ natural rubber so couldn't handle them and had to be cautious of the books next to them . :( my son pulled a few unbounded ones out of the box and wiped them down for me. I"ll decide from those, add my own, and send the box on to the next person as soon as I get an address.

Surprise! I checked on this box yesterday and it was still marked TBR by tostle...and then it turned up at my house today*!

I will look through it, make my choices, and get this moving again as quickly as I can; I've sent a PM to the next person in line.

Taking out:

My Man Jeeves (3 CDs, unabridged)
The Simple Faith of Mister Rogers (3 CDs, unabridged)
Island of the Sequined Love Nun (10 CDs, unabridged)

Mistaken Identity (7 CDs, unabridged)
The Mysterious Edge of the Heroic World (4 CDs, unabridged)
Ya-Yas in Bloom (5 CDs, abridged)

It turns out that this box is going to have a hitchhiker in it, so I had to make some adjustments to the CDs I'm putting in.

I was pleasantly surprised to see this box return home to me a couple days ago. I just now realized it's been traveling for over a year -- wow. It may even be the original box I started it with...the BCID# written on the flaps looks like my handwriting. I would normally find that hard to believe, but after almost needing a chisel to cut through all the tape to get it open, it might just be true. :')

There's a nice variety of books in here, and actually only a few that I've already read. I'll be going through & making journal entries for them all & then decide their immediate fate. As always, I've got quite a lot of audios waiting to pass along already, so I'll probably start a new round of the box (a new box -- ha!) soon. Let me know if you'd like to join the next round & if I don't hear from you I'll probably be sending a PM..... Thanks to all who participated in this round. Happy New Year to you all! :')
