Happy 2012!!! New thread for a new year. This is our 10th!

☆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 $2.80 for a standard size book (Weight Not Over 1 lbs.) - Price at Feb 2020.

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.

Well it's the 15th Jan and no one has set up a 2020 version so here it is.
T02S03B11D20 is to be tagged carrying on from 2019's game
Here is their Wishlist: https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/wishlist?...

 

with Cinder by Marissa Meyer. It's been read, but not registered yet.
For me, tag it forward (no need to wait), wings, BC supplies or a book are ok.
Thanks for the new thread J4shaw!

 

With a tag it forward to iwillrejoice. Winter Street is ready to go once I verify address.

 

with Hunting and Gathering
by Anna Gavalda
Wished for on 2/15/2009

I need to register it and send it on.

For me, I have a large wishlist, would love BC supplies, and have a free-library shelf I contribute to at work. Feel free to tag it forward after 24 hours.

 

... with "The Best We Could Do" by Thi Bui:
https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/15815757

For me, any tag or forward tag is great. Thanks!

 

with The Color Master (stories) by Amy Bender. Not yet registered, but as I don't plan to read it, it will be ready to go out soon! PM'ing for address.

For me...Wings!!...or tag-it-forward after 24 hours.

 

with Single Paper Napkins for your collection. I have a nice variety of holiday, dogs, other designs. Don’t think I have a wishlist book but will see if I have another book you might like.

Feel free to tag forward after 24 hours.

 

with Educated. A great book club book & I happened to pick up an extra copy somewhere

For the, the usual. Feel free to tag it forward at any time, but books gratefully appreciated too

 


with... "Unfinished Business: One Man's Extraordinary Year of Trying to Do the Right Things" by Lee Kravitz!

(I'd be happy to have wings or BC supplies for a tag. Homemade labels are great)

 

I tag iwillrejoice with "Sister"

 

I tag iwillrejoice with "Sister"


I seem to have been skipped here?

 

I tag iwillrejoice with "Sister"


I seem to have been skipped here?



I can sympathize. I was skipped over by whiskeyjane last month with a tag forward even though it was not mentioned as an option in my post.

 

Reminder: please make sure to tag the next in line, sorting the thread if you aren't sure who made the most recent post. Only if they've specified a tag-it-forward should you tag someone else, and in that case the post should read "I tag original-name with a tag-it-forward to new-name", to make it clear that you aren't accidentally skipping somebody. Thanks!

 

I skimmed through 4 months of forum posts by iwillrejoice and I didn't see any tag game posts by her, of course I could have missed it, as I was scrolling pretty quickly, but it doesn't look like she was up to be tagged any time in the recent past. I wonder if one of us should message whiskeyjane and explain to her how the game works, as this has happened twice now.

 

...with Bodies in Motion and at Rest ( https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/15787375 ). (Book sent and received.)

My wishlist should be up to date, and I do like to get books, but tag-it-forward is also good!

 

with Ballpoint by Gyoergy Moldova. It is on my TBR so I shall move it up on my list.

If nobody has anything on my list, please tag it forward.

 

mrsjones 2 mos ago
I tag RNAi
with Stargirl. Loved that book!
Will PM you for your address.

 

with The Atomic City Girls. Just picked it up at a library sale last week and would like to read it, so will probably get it out next month.

For me, a book, wings or tag it forward all work.

(As far as tag it forwards work, can we make it a rule or set like a three day limit? Just a suggestion since I know we have been held up in the past. I know that we would all like to receive something, but sometimes it seems it just is not possible at that moment.)

 

with One Rainy Night by Richard Laymon
I need to read/register it first.

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.

Updates: https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/15839854

For me, a book, wings or tag it forward all work.

 

With The Last Days of Magic by Mark Tompkins - I received it for christmas and have read it... just need to register it.

Edit: tag it forward is fine for me if you can't find anything on my list.

Wished for on 2/27/2019

This is on my Wishlist too, so I have just ordered it & will send it on to you once I've read it...should only be a couple of weeks.
I actually thought I was going to tag you yesterday, as I picked up a book at the Thrift Store that I thought was on your Wishlist, but turns out I got my S's confused, as it was Southernfryed's.
I have already RABCK'd that one, but I wanted to still tag you after that failed effort!

Edited to add: 24 Feb 2020 - the book arrived in the mail with me today.

Mailed 30 March 2020

Wished for on 12/17/2018
https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/15137984/

This has been on Mt TBR for a while, so Tagging you with it will make me read it and get it moving.
*Edited to add:- 23 Feb 2020 I have started reading this, but it is slow going. This might not be out to you until mid next month.

 

with The Girl I used To Be by Mary Torjussen.

I actually just purchased this yesterday at the local Dollar General. I have a book to read ahead of it, and then can get started on it, so will probably send early next month.

A book, wings or tag it forward all work for me.

 

...with a book to be determined after I check with her. Update: sending The Twisted Ones ( https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/15788952/ ). (Book sent and received.)

My wishlist is up to date, and while I love getting books, a tag-it-forward also works!

Wings or tag-it-forward after 24 hours works for me!

Wings, a nonwork wish, or tagging it forward are all OK

With “the foretelling” by Alice Hoffman.

 

with "As the Crow Flies" by Craig Johnson
https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/13186515

This is a TBR but shouldn't take long. For me, a tag to another bookcrosser is fine if you have nothing on my wishlist.

(I'd be happy to have wings or BC supplies for a tag. Homemade labels are great)

 

with shtum

 

with The White Darkness by Geraldine McCaughrean
https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/15870432

It's TBR so it won't go out right away, but I'll put it in line right after the library books.

I won't turn down a wishlist book, but I'm always happy to get one of the non-book wishes on my list. Or you can always tag it forward: no waiting required.

Also, a question for rubyrebel: I've sent you the following books and you've journaled them, but the titles are still on your wishlist. Are you looking for additional copies? (My apologies: I was looking at the wrong list. But it does look like you have The Perfect Horse on your current wish list, your granted wishes, and TBR.)

• The Perfect Horse by Elizabeth Letts - https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/15673087
• Waiting for Gertrude - https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/9849878
• Grimm's Complete Fairy Tales - https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/15801211

 

with an Origami book. Coffee table type hardback with beautiful illustrations, so you may want to keep it for yourself - a fellow crafter was cleaning out her book stash and dropped it off at the used book sale.

For me, feel free to tag it forward, but books appreciated too. Just updated my wishlist with book club books for the summer.

 

with Ellie and the Harpmaker. It is a TBR (to be registered and read) so it will take a bit, but it WILL get sent to you.

For me, wishlist books are fine, or BC supplies, or tag it forward after 48 hours.
