I'll send the PMs to all the participants shortly.

Oppem started a wonderful birthday RABCK thread in 2012, later bookstogive was in charge of it, and now it continues with me.

If you want to join this INTERNATIONAL Birthday RABCK:

- Please comment in the thread and PM me your birthday and address, including your name, postal code and country.
Please note, that this is INTERNATIONAL group and lots of people order books from Better World Books/Thrift Books for the group and they need city/state and province for more accurate shipping.

- If you are planning to move this coming year (2021) make a note in your PM so I can note it on the master list to check before sending.

The sign up closes end of October - beginning of November. Afterwards I'll PM everyone the address list.

- Once you have the list for 2021 start sending birthday cards and/or books/presents. It's always awesome to find a card or present from another country in your mailbox on your birthday!

- I will keep the list of the books sent, so don't hesitate to check with me to avoid sending duplicates :)
Poodlesister will keep the list of books intended for me

- Everyone should participate as much as they can by sending something to as many people on the birthday list as possible. Many members might only send birthday cards or you can send gifts/books to all, it's up to each person what they send. The 2020 participation has been awesome despite the worldwide COVID-19 situation.

- It would be very nice for you to put on your profile page things that you like and wouldn't mind getting for your birthday - for example things you collect or types of books you would be ok with even though they are not on your wishlist.
Also take a few minutes to update your wishlist as you may be getting several books from it and a big selection is a plus. It really helps to find something to send if you don't happen to have a wishlist book available.

PLEASE -*** ONLY JOIN THIS RABCK IF YOU ARE PREPARED TO SEND GIFTS/ BOOKS / CARDS TO MOST PEOPLE ON THE LIST AND ALSO WHEN YOU RECEIVED A BOOK / CARD / GIFT PLEASE THANK THE KIND PERSON WHO SENT YOU SOMETHING AND POST ON THE THANK YOU PAGE SO EVERYONE CAN SHARE IN THE FUN. ***. I have kept track of people who are signed up but don't seem to want to send out items. This is NOT the place to sign up for free gifts if you are not going to send out somethings as well.

Still working on mailing things for 2020 but...PM coming, thanks.

 

 

Delayed births until October perhaps? [hehe, none in September and a plethora of births in October!] People round here would say (or at least used to say) 'No power cuts in December but clearly plenty in January!'

No criticism intended, by the way...I wasn't sure if you had her birthday yet.

Thank you for running this for us.

 

Any last minute entries?

 

Also, participants from 13 countries, that's impressive ))

Yay a fellow kiwi! :D :D :D

Closing over the weekend

 

 

for your message to check in if I'd like to participate again! I loved to be in the group this year, choose books that I hoped will be a nice birthday present and oh my, all the wonderful gifts I got!! However, i still have some envelopes lying here for Oktober and November that the Polish post didn't yet accept due to the pandemics, so I think I'll be participating again in 2022 once this whole craziness will be over ;) Have a lot of fun, everyone!

 

I did make a comment two weeks ago, but it appears that you did not notice it.

 

I don't have a PM with your birthday and address, could you check?

 

wingMecuwing 5 mos ago
Just wondering
- I will keep the list of the books sent, so don't hesitate to check with me to avoid sending duplicates :)

But what about the books others are going to send to you, Lamilla? Do we report them to you, too, leaving no room for surprise?
