I've added you to the book box.



Sure - I've added you to the list.


Was amused to see that it's an Amazon box - I recognized the logo right away since I have so many of them myself {grin}.

There's an interesting assortment of books in the box, and I hope to make my selection and get it on its way again by Saturday. Thanks for including me!

Update: I mailed the box on 9/24; DC# 03082040000083816957

Hi! Just wondering if the book box has been sent to hyphen8 yet?

note: 11/17/2010 sent a PM to BXer


...I don't think I've been contacted about this box yet.

On the other hand, I had two other boxes of books arrive today, so I'm not eager to get this one right away! :o


Seems that the book box isn't moving now. I'll be going to an used book fair next week so I'll mail you out a fresh box by December 13th if Clioi08 doesn't get back to you. Time for re-start #2. Thanks for your patience!

RE: Thanks!
Thanks for being patient with this book box! Have fun time with it. And enjoy the holidays!


I've got books ready to go :)


laevina 9 yrs ago
Hi! I've added you to the book box - thanks for joining!


With *12* books in it. :D

laevina, I think I may have figured out the problem: you put too many good books in the box and make it hard to choose. :p

I have a stack to put in as soon as I register them, but I want to scoop most of the existing ones! Decisions, decisions. I'll get this back out again as soon as I can, thanks.

Oh yes, I forgot to mention that I love the cute stationery. :)


Great! I tried to cram as many as I could place in the box. Feel free to have fun with it. And I'm glad you like the kawaii stationery. :>) Happy reading in the New Year!


I decided to be good - I'm only taking 5 of the 12 books from the box! :p

Taking out:

The Left Hand of Darkness
The Earthsea Quartet
Radio Free Albemuth
The Winter of the World

Putting in 5 books I've read and enjoyed:

Emergence by David R. Palmer

Jed the Dead by Alan Dean Foster

Dragonsinger by Anne McCaffrey

Major Operation by James White

The Serpent's Shadow by Mercedes Lackey

The box will be going back out as soon as I confirm the address of the next person.


Media mail usually takes about 3 weeks.

Delivery Confirmation:

...labels, booklists, bookmarks, stuff like that, or at least I *meant to*.

It's for anyone who wants to take..


And after 2 weeks it's made it all the way to California. Whee. I'm thinking once they put it on a truck it will be faster than the boat was...

RE: Added
Thank you! <3


in the morning:)


I'd like to participate in this bookbox. I live in Fairbanks, AK, so media mail can sometimes take quite some time. I don't mind waiting as long as it's ok with everybody else.


laevina 9 yrs ago
Hi! I have added you to the list.


Book box is here :)


Someone included a copy of "The World of Null-A" but I don't see a bookCrossing.com number written anywhere on it. Does anyone know if this is, in fact, registered?


So...I kept hoping someone would reply and let me know if Null-A was registered or not, but nobody did. So I registered it, and the box is now on its way to the next person in line :)

Sorry for the delay!


I'm taking out:

Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs
The Science Fiction Hall of Fame Volume I
The World of Null-A by A.E. Van Vogt
The Gate to Women's Country by Sheri S. Tepper

and adding:

Good Omens by Terry Prachett & Neil Gaiman
Speaker for the Dead by Orson Scott Card
Cover Her Face by P.D. James
Rosemary's Baby by Ira Levin

Thanks, everyone! So exciting, my first bookbox! Will get it on its way tomorrow!


Box was waiting for me last night when I got home from visiting family over Memorial Day weekend. Was too tired to sort through it then, but I'll get to it over the next day or so. Thank you!


Will pull:

Good Omens
The Best Science Fiction of the Year

Will add:

Wizards: Magical Tales from the Masters of Modern Fantasy - ed. Jack Dann and Gardner Dozois
Eric - Terry Pratchett
The Doomed Planet - L. Ron Hubbard

Will get the box back on the road ASAP.


I've heard from kiyoteefoxx - I'll try to get the box into the mail during my lunch break today.


Got it out just after 1 p.m. today.


OK I've made a few choices and have it ready to go, which it will do as soon as I get the address for the next reader. :D


I'm pretty excited.
