Happy 2019!!! New thread for a new year. This is our 9th!

☆Please feel free to start another thread when needed☆

Don't forget to keep your Wishlist up to date, also consider adding non book wishes (ie wings, bookplates) to your Wishlists to make it easier to keep the game moving.

Remember this great exchange is all made possible by Bruce & Heather!
SUPPORT THE SITE!!!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NOTE - media mail within the USA is just $2.75 for a standard size book (Weight Not Over 1 lbs.) or $3.27 for a larger/hardback book. - Price at May 2019.

HOW TO PLAY:
1) Make sure you have the sort options set to "Flat - Latest First" so you can be sure who is next in line to be tagged.
2) Simply check their Wishlist, and if you have a book that features there, and are happy to pay the postage, PM them for their address, and
3) Mail the book to them

* Some Game Rule *
- Title your post with "I tag <member name>"
- Before Tagging, please ensure your own Wishlist is up to date.
- To manage expectations, please state whether the book you are Tagging with is TBR or whether it is ready to send straight away.

- If you want/need to say something in the thread (besides tagging somebody) or if you just want to bump the thread, please title your post "still <member name> to be tagged" or something similar.

- Rather than posting in this thread to thank people when your book arrives, please use the following Wishlist-tag THANK YOU thread instead:
https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/557559

IMPORTANT INFO ABOUT TAGGING IT FORWARD
- If you are open to being Tagged Forward, please state as much in your post, ie “If I’ve not been Tagged within 1/24/48/72 hours, feel free to Tag It Forward.”
- The term "Tag it Forward" relates to you opting to forfeit being Tagged yourself, and allowing others to randomly Tag any other BookCrosser, whether they are playing the game or not.
- Before you Tag it forward, you need to PM the person you are intending to Tag it forward to, to ensure their Wishlist is up to date, and ask for their address.
As I am sure you can appreciate, things get a little messy when you Tag it Forward, and then you yourself are Tagged and the game continues, all the while you never hear back from the person you Tagged it Forward to for their address, so you never actually send your book out. This messes up the "give a book, get a book" vibe of the game.
- Please do not Tag It Forward if a player has not made mention of Tag It Forward in their post.

Code To Zero by Ken Follett
https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/11327718

*I've been wanting to participate more to give than receive, and while I'd love to receive a Wishlist Book (I actually just added a few that are fairly new publications just before finding this thread), I am just as happy with a non-book Wish, or a Tag-It-Forward.😉

 

With a tag it forward to dabercro, Unbroken. It's ready to go as soon as I verify address.

 

with Bittersweet by Miranda Beverly-Whittemore. Not yet registered. Not planning to read, so I can get it out to you soon!

-----
For me, a non-book wish, or tag-it-forward after 48 hours would be great. But I won't refuse a wishlist book, despite the size of Mt. TBR. :-)

 

with a tag-it-forward to ciloma with "Snuff" by Chuck Palahniuk (I'm nearly finished reading it, so it will be mailed soon). https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/15104050

In addition to the books on my wishlist, wings are always appreciated, and I can always use Becky's Hugs bookplates: https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/ec045999-5b82-4d69-a956-9637ecbc4801

 

... A Stolen Life by Jaycee Dugard
https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/11296000

For me, a tag to another bookcrosser is fine if you have nothing on my wishlist.

 


with... "The Last Hero" by David Falkner. :)

 

...with Sea of the Patchwork Cats ( https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/15321840/ ). [Book sent and received.]

More updates on my wishlist, but tag-it-forward is also good!

 

with In Trouble Again (different isbn: 0679727140; let me know if not acceptable).

If you don't have any books on my wishlist, I have a few non-book wishes; or tag-it-forward after 48 hours.

 

With The Emperors of Chocolate: https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/15176330/

Will pm for an address.

My wishlist is updated, but am fine with non-book tags (Wings, labels etc) and tag it forwards.

 

With a tag it forward to Booklady33l. Crime Beat by Michael Connelly. It will probably be next week before I can mail it.
https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/11939757

Please tag it forward at this time. My TBR is too large a stack.

 

with a tag it forward to book_drunkard of A Tale of Two Kitties.


A book, wings or a tag it forward all work. Please do not let the game stall.

 

with Bird Box. I have read it, just need to register it.

If you don't have any books on my wishlist, please tag-it-forward after 48 hours.

Planning to mail out 1/22/19

 

...with 84 Charing Cross Road ( https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/15321888/ ). [Book sent and received.]

Some new items on my wishlist, and tag-it-forward also works!

 

with "Attachments" by Rainbow Rowell http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/15152741

I'll mail it off as soon as I get mailing details.

My wish list is current, and I'm always grateful for wings or Becky's Hugs bookplates: https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/ec045999-5b82-4d69-a956-9637ecbc4801

 

...Cadillac Desert by Marc Reisner
https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/15351686

... with a forward tag to FeistyPom2Love of "Letters from Skye" by Jessica Brockmole: https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/15356581 . For me, any forward tag or tag is great. Thank you!

 

With something a little way down my TBR, but it’s yours if you’re happy to wait a little for it:
“To The Bright Edge Of The World” by Eowyn Ivey
Wished for on 12/25/2018

Wishlist is up to date, but non-book tags, and tag it forwards are good as well.

Mcsar tagged me with this book 3 weeks ago, and it's 100% my mistake for not updating my Wishlist!

Sure, I will do that.

 

with Follow the Money.

https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/15359269

Wings would be good, as mine are about to expire. Also, tag it forward okay if I'm holding things up.

 

wingQueen72wing 9 mos ago
I tag ghir
with Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI, https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14008562/
This book is my IRL book club selection for February, so I can send you the book as soon as we discuss it.
If you don't have any books on my wishlist, please tag-it-forward after 48 hours.

 

Tag Them Forward

 

Hi Shroffland-
To tag it forward you need to do “I am tagging it forward to (insert bookcrosser) with (insert book).”

Then fill in the “insert” parts with the relevant bookcrosser/book.

If you scroll down, you can see examples of tagging and tagging it forward.

Edit, also Queen72 asked for a tag it forward only after 48 hours.

 

It is important to note that Queen72 has said they are happy for it to be Tagged Forward after 48 hours, and we're not there yet.
I've PM'ed Shroffland with a little more detail.

 

I would like to join!

 

I would like to join!

Welcome Shroffland!
You can join in anytime by Tagging the person who is up next to be Tagged.
So in this current situation, Queen72 was the last person who Tagged, so you check their Wishlist to see if you have anything that you could Tag them with.
If you do, you post "I tag <member name>", then PM them for their address to send them the book.
Then it is your turn to be Tagged with a book from your Wishlist.
Please take the time to read the instructions in the main forum post.

 

Still learning the ropes
I’ll get the hang of it!

 

With a Supply store gift certificate!

 

With a Supply store gift certificate!

Shroffland have you purchased this already?
Its only been 14 hours since Queen72 Tagged, and they stated they were happy for it to be Tagged forward only if they hadn't been Tagged within 48 hours.
I have sent you some PM's, have you received them?
If you haven't yet purchased the Supply store gift certificate, please hold off.

 

I did already purchase the certificate, but maybe, we could carry on in the correct order until Queen72’s 48 hours are up, and Bookworminusall could take my place in line this round. I’ll track how things work in the meantime so I can do it correctly when my turn comes again.

I regret the confusion I’ve created

 

RE: I jumped the gun here.
I did already purchase the certificate
I would love to thank you for this, Schroffland...I am new here, too ; )...and perhaps return the favor to reimburse you after all of your trouble and confusion I see has gone on (THANK YOU, J4shaw...for organizing this exchange, and more importantly...for your role and assistance as GREATLY APPRECIATED "Wishlist Tag Police" ; D!!!), but I thought you'd want to know that something may have gone awry, as I have not received your Supply Store Gift Certificate, which they usually send as a code, quite promptly, via email. ; )

 

but I thought you'd want to know that something may have gone awry, as I have not received your Supply Store Gift Certificate, which they usually send as a code, quite promptly, via email. ; )

Please check your junk/spam folder.
I checked with Moem (Supply Store Manager) and the purchase did indeed take place.

 

Wish I had something from your Wishlist, J4shaw😢...and I don't want to mix things up by posting a response above, to this post of yours from up there...
Please check your junk/spam folder.
I checked with Moem (Supply Store Manager) and the purchase did indeed take place.
...but I wanted to let you know that there's been no resolve, as yet. I had checked my Spam folder before I posted https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/9257753 (THANK YOU for your suggestion, though!!!❤), and to this date...having still not received a "code" via email, I've checked it a few times since, so I will contact Moem to see what course of action can be taken. 😉

 

When I checked my order history, it said “awaiting processing”; it may be a glitch at the store’s site.
Next time, I’ll stick to wings and books....
Hope everything turns out OK in the end.

 

I Tag Queen72 with "Sea of Tranquility" by Katja Millay
Coming via Better World Books

Please DO NOT Tag me
Please Tag It Forward to Shroffland
Their Wishlist is here: https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/wishlist

Shroffland, don't be sorry.
We're grateful for new members joining in the game as this opens up the books circulating.

 

with The Cold Dish by Craig Johnson
https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/1600321

 

Unless they have just moved it there, the book "The Cold Dish" by Craig Johnson is on their granted wishes page, not their current wishes page.

 

I PM'd Shroffland for her address. And I received a reply with her address to send the book "The Cold Dish". Perhaps she put it on her granted list when she saw her tag on this form. I know I try to do that as soon as I've been tagged. But I will check with her now to be sure that's the way it is.

I'm sure you're right, but do please confirm.
Sorry for being the Wishlist Tag Police....just kept my eye on things after it went astray yesterday, and want to make sure all stays fair.
I sent a mailshot out to some members last week and also posted a link on Twitter on the weekend, so am trying to be on hand for new members joining who need some guidance.

 

Shroffland has confirmed that she had that book on her WL and moved it to granted after being tagged. Love2cook to be tagged
