Happy 2021!!! New thread for a new year. This is our 11th!

☆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 $2.89 for a standard size book (Weight Not Over 1 lbs.) - Price at 29 January 2021.

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.
