Journal Entry 1 by winghyphen8wing from Honolulu, Hawaii USA on Thursday, December 30, 2010

This book has not been rated.

This little book is going out with the continuation of my mostly cassette audio bookbox.

It will start off with 18 books on cassette because I don't have any CDs ready to go at the moment, but if you want to put in a CD audiobook or two that's ok - just try to keep it to no more than a couple of CDs in the box at a time since this is meant to be mostly cassettes.

-=-=--=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Books to start the box:

Abel's Island by William Steig
Are You There Alone? by Suzanne O'Malley and Betty Ann Baker
The Bear and the Dragon by Tom Clancy
The Book of Three by Lloyd Alexander
Castaways of the Flying Dutchman by Brian Jacques
Christy by Catherine Marshall
The Complete Sonnets by William Shakespeare
Contagion by Robin Cook
Dark Rivers of the Heart by Dean Koontz
The Falcon at the Portal by Elizabeth Peters
1st to Die by James Patterson
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
Headwind by John Nance
Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling
Killshot by Elmore Leonard
Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
The Thief of Always by Clive Barker
A Week in the Woods by Andrew Clements

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 to the people who come after you.

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. I'm not very imaginative, but it's always fun to see what other people have to say. :)

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.

Just got home from a mini vacation up in the northern reaches of Wisconsin and found this big box of audiobooks. Whoo! Hoo! There are so many interesting ones to choose from and it will be fun to root around the box and make my selections. Thanks for continuing this box, hyphen8!

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Finally! I am getting this big ol' box out the door. Life has been throwing a number of hectic days at me and then we get hit with another big ol' snowstorm. After two days of blizzard conditions, the neighborhood is, at last, dug out from under a foot of that white stuff and I was able to make it to the post office. So, the audiobooks are on their merry way to the next participant. Here is the tracking number: 0310 0480 0002 3194 6401
Happy Travels!

I picked up the box from the post office this morning. It must have just arrived before I came, because I didn't even have a note in my P.O. box yet. It'll take a few days to go through the box, exchange books and repackage, I might have to get a new box.

Well, this box is home again and I'm impressed: it grew and grew and grew! I got back 51 audiobooks in a giant box. Thank you to all participants for helping make my second try at a bookbox a success. It may take me a while to go through everything but I'll post in the forum when I'm ready to start this box up again.

Not too bad: only 4 of the originals came back to me, and at least one of them got listened to along the way.
