"A book is a mysterious object, I said, and once it floats out into the world, anything can happen. All kinds of mischief can be caused, and there's not a damned thing you can do about it. For better or worse, it's completely out of your control." -- Paul Auster

The book box is on its way to Azuki in Florida

Wow! Guess what turned up on my doorstep tonight?! The original box that I sent. It appears to have all the books in it still, but the box has "No Such Number" written on it. I do not know what the number was, because the address is completely missing -- they used my return address label to get it back to me.

Suggestions on what to do with the box and its contents would be greatly appreciated. I am about to move house and do NOT need another box of books around here getting mixed up with my own boxes of books. :)

I decided to risk it and sent the box to Azuki in Miami. The lady at the post office yelled at me, saying that I had put too many labels with the address on the box. I told her to deal with it, because they were all the same address and I didn't want it to get lost again.

The box is here, and pretty fast too, maybe due to the many labels on it? LOL
I'll see if anybody else wants to take a look before sending this back to innae.

The book box arrived! So muchfun, and lots of books I haven't read.

I have to say, I see that this copy of "A Waiting Game" came from The Book Mark, in Lakewood, Colorado. I'm quite certain that I shopped for used books at that store, long long ago. Fun to see something come that far out of the past.

And in honor of those long ago years, I'm putting a book into this box that was given to me by one of my beaux, way back when I was in college. Crazy to see how long I've owned it.

I am in the middle of an additional book for this box. Let's see if I finish it in time to enclose it, and remove one more new book.

haahaahaa98 posted a forum message saying that the food only book box has been mailed to me. http://www.bookcrossing.com/forum/20/495396

Hopefully it will be soon reunited with this copy of the Waiting Game.

I recently picked this up as a quick read as I enjoy these types of romances. I actually found myself enjoying it quite a bit :) 


Journal Entry 18 by wingnimrodielwing at Evanston, Illinois USA on Monday, June 08, 2015

The bookbox arrived from haahaahaa98 on Saturday. There was a slip on it saying that the package had been damaged in the mail and a hole on the side had been patched up.

The box was very full. haahaahaa98 mentioned that he had added more books to the box as an apology of sorts for keeping it so long. I will box what I can up and send along to the next person.

However, I may have to hold onto this a few weeks as unexpected expenses have come up with the recent passing of my father (along with time being a very limited quantity).

I will be adding in:

Murder of a smart cookie by Denise Swanson
Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain
Comfort food by Kate Jacobs
The Saffron Kitchen by Yasmin Crowther
Last Night at the Lobster by Stewart O'Nan

My replacement box was a bit smaller than haahaahaa98's box so I am taking out 12 books - the 5 I am replacing with the above titles and 7 that wouldn't fit into the box. All will be read and/or wild released.

I have decided this book has done a good job as a BookBox journal, but it is has been in a couple now, and it is hard to keep track of what journal entry goes with what -- so, I am going to retire it and send it out into the world.

Donating to Charity (VVA)

Congratulations!! You have found a rare and unique gift, a travelling book!!

In either case, please read what has been said before, where has this book been, who enjoyed it, who didn't -- and perhaps, if you care to, you can add your two cents!


You do not have to join bookcrossing to pick up, enjoy, and journal a book -- however, if you do decide to join us, please consider using me (innae) as your recommending friend, and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to drop me a personal message (for more info, check out the FAQ).


And again, thank you for saving this book from a life of boredom!
