🇺🇸 USA & Canada Wishlist Tag Game 🇨🇦 2019
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.

Tagging with Grimm’s Complete Fairy Tales

It needs to be registered and I’ll mail it with Rin Tin Tin - which I’m reading now.

rubyrebel, please do update your wishlist when you get the chance - unless you really want more than one copy. I see at least two books on your current wishlist that I’ve sent and you’ve journaled.

As for me,please feel free to tag it forward at any time (no waiting required) or choose one of the non-book options on my wishlist - they should be near the beginning if you sort by title or author.

 

with stardust

 

with some BC supplies.

 

with What Was Lost by Catherine O'Flynn and maybe a couple others on your wishlist if I can get them together.

Wishlist Books, Wings, BookCrossing Supplies or a Tag Forward all good.

 

... with a tag it forward to therubycanary

Sending The Danish Girl by David Ebershoff

A book or a tag it forward works.

 

...with Christmas on Ganymede ( https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/15594625/ ). [Update: book sent.]

I like wishlist books and BC supplies; tag-it-forward is great too!

 

with One for the Money by Janet Evanovich.
It's available. Will PM for address.

 

... with a tag it forward to ciloma.

Book being sent is A Little Princess by Frances Hodgen Burnett.

A book or a tag it forward works for me! :)

Please feel free to tag it forward at any time (no waiting required) or choose one of the non-book options on my wishlist - they should be near the beginning if you sort by title or author.

 

with My Best Friend's Girl by Dorothy Koomsom
Wished for on 4/18/2009
I'm registering it now and will send it when I get to the post office next.

For anybody who tags me, please be sure you are sending to a Lynnwood or Seattle address. I updated my wishlist all last month, I accept books for my work's take-a-book-leave-a-book shelf, and I'm in need of nice adhesive BC labels.

 

With Garment of Shadows. It’s TBR.

 

with The Witch Elm by Tana French
https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/15614214
Reading this now.

For me, please tag another bookcrosser if you have nothing on my wishlist.

 

With a tag it forward to chicvolley99 with Remember Me? It’s ready to go!

 

with The Darkest Evening of the Year by Dean Koontz

ETA: If my wishlist is too short, I'd love Wings,Stickers, or a tag forward.

 

with Finding Gobi: A Little Dog with a Very Big Heart by Dion Leonard.
You spelled Gobi "Goni" on your wishlist, I checked the author's page just to be sure that he hadn't also written a book with Goni in the title, couldn't find one so I'm hoping it was a typo.
The book is TBR and it will probably be the end of January before I will have time to read it and send it your way.

 

with sips of blood

 

with a tag it forward to Aramena of A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson.
It's available so will get it sent once I receive an address.

Sent

 

I try to tag people with actual books - to get them out of the house - but..

..to get things moving again (and because whiskeyjane may have already mailed the book to iwillrejoice), I'll tag mcsar with wings (purchased December 3) and whiskeyjane with labels & a shopping bag (mailed December 9).

Please feel free to tag it forward at any time (no waiting required) or choose one of the non-book options on my wishlist - they should be near the beginning if you sort by title or author. Mom is always pleased to get stamps, and I actually *do* have too many books. :s

 

In the interest of keeping us on track, perhaps mcsar can post whether they are okay with a forward tag to iwillrejoice or whether they would like to be tagged directly.

 

How did iwillrejoice get in there?

 

with The Knitting Circle, it's ready to go in the mail on Monday

To whomever tags me, make sure you send to a Lynnwood or Seattle address. I have a huge wishlist and an easy out, or I'm looking for adhesive BC labels as I've run out.
