Journal Entry 1 by BigJohnLefty from Des Moines, Iowa USA on Thursday, May 12, 2011

This book has not been rated.

This is the journal (which I selected, by the way, because the cute little puppies on the front remind me of my golden retriever Jack - a few years ago he looked just like one of them) that goes into my CD-only audiobookbox.Participants will make entries in here as to what books they've taken out and put in, as well as other relevant comments they'd like to make.Please attempt to take out the same number of discs as you put in, as much as is possible.I would prefer that you use delivery confirmation, but this is not required.And for the time-being, I'm leaving this open, so if others want to join, that's fine with me - I'll just add folks on to the end of the list.And I will make every attempt to update the list of books as it makes its way around.Bon Voyage!

Tentative Order (since I've already got one out there, may shuffle as we go along to prevent people having both at the same time):

Box actually arrived Saturday, but we were having a busy weekend. Once again, BigJohn, an eclectic and enticing collection! I shall PM k00kaburra straightaway.  


Journal Entry 4 by wingJudySlump612wing at Minneapolis, Minnesota USA on Wednesday, May 25, 2011

10 out of 10

I chose these books:
- The Box, by Richard Matheson
- The Bonesetter's Daughter, by Amy Tan
- Metro Girl, by Janet Evanovich
- Spy Who Came in from the Cold, by John Le Carre
- Girl with a Pearl Earring, by Tracy Chevalier

I replaced them with:
- The Gingerbread Girl, by Stephen King
- To the Nines, by Janet Evanovich
- The Chocolate War, by Robert Cormier
- Steppenwolf, by Hermann Hesse

22 discs out, 22 discs back in :-)

I apologize to k00kaburra since so many of these are books that have already been through her hands. But since she's hurrying to get ready to leave, maybe that's not so bad; it will narrow her choices and save some time. And there are still plenty of goodies in the box, no problem!

Finally got a day of no work and nothing planned except to catch up on my BookCrossing stuff (and other things)!

I didn't take as many as I'd like, as many are mystery/thriller which just isn't my cup of tea, and some I've read already. Nonetheless, I enjoyed going through the box, and here is my selection:

I took:
Bright Shiny Morning (11 CDs)
The Secret of Judas (5)
The Golden Valkyrie (5)

and put in:
Don't Kiss Them Goodbye (5 CDs)
Terrorist (5)
The 4 Hour Work Week (7)
And You Know You Should Be Glad (4)

Carlissa wishes to be skipped so this is now going to booklady331.

This audiobookbox came back to me safe and sound today! It was nice that not one single title I originally sent out in it returned to me - though there were a few that had been from me from previous ones.
I now have 14 titles I have not yet listened to.

There are five I've already heard, and they'll go into the next round (along with 15-20 sitting on my shelf right now) which will take me a few days to put together.

This book has not been rated.

As always, agonizing choices among a wonderful assortment, forced by my lack of replacement books. Here's what I took (24 disks):

- Penelopiad, Atwood
- I Drink for a Reason, Cross
- Year of Magical Thinking, Didion
- Michale Tolliver Lives, Maupin
- Goodnight Nobody, Weiner

And here are my replacements (23 disks):
- I'm Not Scared, Ammaniti
- Rule of Four, Caldwell & Thomason
- A Dirty Job, Moore
- I, Alex Cross, Patterson

I'm abashed that I took more than I replaced, both titles and disks. BigJohn, I promise that if you run this for another round - and if you include me - and if you give me enough time to cram more listening in - I'll make it up in the future.

Received today - there don't seem to be any late additions to the participant list, so I'll look through the box and see if I can get it sent home pretty quickly.

The box started with 30 audiobooks and currently contains 29 plus a Janet Evanovich 3-in-1 (with 3 separate BCIDs)...and only two of them appear to have started with the box, so that's a pretty good turnover!

Added a picture of the puppies. :)

Why it's better for me to journal the books I'm putting into the box BEFORE sealing it: in doing so, I realized that the person who journaled one of the books right before me was BigJohnLefty! (It apparently came from one of his other boxes.)

So I've revised my list slightly rather than sending him one I know for sure he's already had at least once.

Taking out 9 books/63 CDs:

Bee Season
Wycliffe and the Pea-Green Boat
Now and Then
Skipping Christmas
A Dirty Job
Heaven's Net
Golden Buddha
Stoneheart
I'm Not Scared

Putting in 9 books/63 cds, which happily matches what I'm taking out!

Bloodstream
Bel Canto
Bad Luck and Trouble
Mystery
Full Dark, No Stars
61 Hours
S is for Silence
Ordinary Heroes
Hitched

I'll send this back out once I have the address.

The box arrived today. It sure is a big box. I took a quick look through out the box. There are quite a few political books which do not interest me. I wish that there weren't so many. A few of the books I have already listened too. I am sure that I will find a few to trade. I am replacing the box as the old one is really taped up.

I've now looked through the box and sorted the books I realize that I was wrong. There are a few political books, but not as many as I thought. They were on the top and I made a hasty journal. Now I need to go and see how many books I have that I can trade so I can make my decision. I have already PMed the next on the list.

Box arrived just before the weekend but didn't get to journal till now.

There is a CD set, Her Fearful Symmetry, that is in the box, However, it's just half of the set, the cover of the plastic box along w disc 1 and 2 are missing. If you happen to be the one who put it in, can you check to see if the first part may still be lying around in your house? It's a shame to have to throw it away.

As Indygo88 said, these audio boxes are starting to feel like an old friend: you may not see them as often as you'd like, but you really enjoy them when they come around.

Found some interesting books this round, and a few that I was interested before but didn't have enough AVL to swap out previously. i still have tons of AVLs now that my commute is much longer, so I am all ready for the other "original" audio bookbox.

Taking out:
The Education of a British Protected Child
Big Wig
The Devil in the White City
A Salty Piece of Land

Putting in:
Seabiscuit
Hitched
Indignation
Good Bos, Bad Boss

I'm leaving Her Fearful Symmetry in the box, hopefully it will re-unit with its other half some day.
