If you got a PM from me I have your info ; )
Have 12 on my list thus far, as usual I only participate if we have an odd number. Last year was actually the first I didn’t have a partner myself & several of you sent me lil notes and or goodies anyways 😘
I’ll keep this open until the 28th of January which will give everyone a couple weeks to post off their goodies.
Feel free to spread the word, the more the merrier!

Ok all
You should have all gotten a PM from me saying I got your info.
Closing this up Sunday evening so I can do pairings on Monday to send out.
Thanks to all who joined!


Enquiring minds want to know.



I'd like to join.


I can't wait to put my package together:-)


I’m working on them currently & will be sending out PM’s later today.
It’s taking a bit due to tryingvto accommodate all shipping preferences.
Thanks for your patience


Ok lovely Bookcrossing people after much thinking and trying my best to accommodate ALL shipping requests I have done the matches. We had an odd number this year so I’ll be mailing a goodie off myself this time out.
Everyone should have a PM from me with the name, address & Bookcrossing name of your pair so you can check out their wishlist, bookshelf etc.
Have fun all
Thanks for joining!



Going to go shopping now :-)

Have everything. Just need to pack it.


Have everything. Just need to pack it.

Actually posted today. First thing this morning.

"Love Walked In"

Thank you, nmugirl!!!


Dad-I-libri had it waiting on the table when I got home. Trying to figure out how you all can see it! Thank you, nmugirl, I can NOT wait to figure out how to get into it. It looks like so much fun.





It was FUN. Getting to it is not hard as you can always cut the bottle up. I just cannot figure out how nmugirl managed to put the stuff inside. Magical!!


Your package arrived today.


I've put it in the cupboard until Valentine's Day.


Hope it arrives on time.

Now I I'll try and wait until 14th February :)



Hope the recipient likes what I have chosen!!!




Went out today, hope it arrives in time!


I'm so sorry but it has been a hard week at work.


Hope it gets there in time. 8)



Couldn't wait, had to open it. Thank you so much southernfryed. I love everything, the cat slippers are the cutest things ever, the tea, the candy, the bookmark, the books, the pencil and the rub on quotes. I love it all, hope your Valentines Day is the best ever.


The package came today and I will wait till the fourteenth to open.


Mailed yesterday, delivered today! And I love everything! Book-Cocktails for Three by Madeleine Wickham. I love her books. There was also a stack of unused postcards, BCID labels and stickers, an Eifle Tower tag, coffees, hot cocoa, an altoids tin, Conversation hearts and assorted candies, cherry chapstick, a painted heart rock and a handpainted bookcrossing block. Love it! happy Valentine's!


Glad you liked it, my daughter painted the rock and the ballycumber. You can go to the site listed on the back and post pics if you like.


I will hold on to it until the 14th and open then :-)


A very huge package arrived today, wow! Keeping it safe for Valentine's Day.

I hope my package will arrive in time, sent it on Feb 5th so it should. :)


But I'm waiting for the 14th to open it :) Mailed mine last weekend.


I'm saving it for tomorrow.... hope it's supposed to rattle!!!


Thank you princess-peapod! Your lovely parcel put mine to shame. I got A Year on Ladybug Farm, a book not on my radar but its premise definitely intrigues me. I also got a lovely scarf. I will wear it out today. It is something I would pick for myself; it is amazing how someone who hasn't seen me or knows my taste can pick something so right for me. And huge thanks for the huge pile of bookcrossing labels and a cute planner. You also sent body lotion and gloves in a brightly colored makeup bag, and valentine candy. Thank you for everything. I love them all. And Happy Valentine to you and everyone.


Glad you liked everything
Happy Valentines
Yours arrived today, will open it in the am!

I can't journal the books I received as they don't have a BCID..
Also the ones I sent haven't been journaled, or acknowledged. Did they arrive?


Yes both arrived and I did put above that I'd received the first one. Nice of you to send the other and they both arrived in time 😃 I'm pretty busy so I don't always get on here frequently so it takes me a while to journal. Don worry about the books I sent- you can either register them or not wirry, I really don't mind. I hope you liked your package!


For 2 books and a cute card :) I'm sorry but I've left them on my mother's house so I can't write their JE until the end of March...
