This bookbox is on its way to the last person, then will be coming home for a short visit. I have about 8 new books I'm going to be adding to the box, then it will be going out again.
Here's the link to the original post about this box - http://www.bookcrossing.com/forum/20/3640733/, which includes links to books that went out in the original box (and a link to a post about these types of books, for an idea what types are included). These books are typically biographies of things, mostly science and history, readable non-fiction books.
Several folks who were on the first list are going to be included (with preference) on the second go-round. They are - Elizardbreath Gomboggit Sherria AwakeAgain Also, Mysteryfan03 and Azuki are the last 2 on the current list. They can let me know if they're interested in a 2nd trip.
So I'm looking for about 6 or so folks to add to the list. This box will probably start its second trip in September. (Just reply here if you're interested.)
I'm still reading 2 books for this box, so I should be able to mail it to the first person about the middle of September. There are currently 8 people on the list, so I can still add 2 - 4 more people if anyone else is interested. I thought I'd post a list (for your enjoyment) of the books that went thru this box on the first trip round. First 14 are titles the box went out with; others are ones that were added (and have been taken, or will be going out with the box on the next trip). Quite a variety.
