Thanks for waiting a while for this box. I hope you enjoy it!

Got it!
I just received the book box, and I'm super excited. :D I'll go through it as fast as possible, but I probably won't be able to ship it out until after Thursday, as this week is finals week at my college. Blah.

 

Is it too late to join this book box?

 

Hi! I've added you to the book box.

 

AmberxMarie 8 yrs ago
Done!
Taking: Wizards: Magical Tales from the Masters of Modern Fantasy by Neil Gaiman, Garth Nix, Eoin Colfer, and others.
Eric by Terry Pratchett
From a Buick 8 by Stephen King
and finally Heartlight by T.A. Barron.

I'm replacing them with: Doppelganger by David Stahler Jr.
Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett.
The Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud.
and finally Seventh Son by Orson Scott Card.

I've messaged Greyflank, and I'm ready to send this box on its way!

 


I've messaged Greyflank, and I'm ready to send this box on its way!

I'm sending you, AmberxMarie, a PM in moments, so if you don't get it, there's a glitch somewhere.

RE: Done!
I'm not certain if you received my PM, so here's my addie:

Bill Kieffer
46 Red Wing Ave
Brick, NJ 08723 usa

Thanks!

 

Will open it after dinner.

 

Actually, the box had an opening big enough for a book to slip thru when it arrived... don't know that any did, mind you, but there are 17 books here. Not sure we can do anything about that, but I wanted to mention it.

I'll be getting a new box to ship to SailorArby. Speaking of SailorArby... he or she has been PM'd for a mailing addie.

 

If the PM's aren't working quite right (and I've been around long enough to see that they haven't always), can someone let SailorArby know I'm looking for him/her and why? Thanks!

 

I'll decide what I'm keeping tomorrow:

1. THE SKY PEOPLE - Stirling
2. IN THE COURTS OF THE CRIMSON KINGS - Stirling
3. SO LONG AND THANKS FOR ALL THE FISH - Adams
4. HULK - David
5. FALL OF KNIGHT - David
6. RING OF THE RUBY DRAGON - Black
7. SECRET SORCERESS - Lowery
8. THE ROAD TO BALINOR - Stanton
9. JLA: SECRET ORIGINS - Teitelbaum

Also... we might want to move SailorArby to the bottom of the list. The forum search for his name suggests he's unreachable at this time.

Hi! Thanks for the PM - can you skip SailorArby and send it onwards to the next person?

It looks like the box was temporarily sent in the wrong direction. AKSarah might want to send up flares for it.

(and previous years too) but hopefully she's gotten her act together since then.....?

 

She may mean well, but she's stalled more books than I can count, and I haven't noticed any of them moving again. And I think the original of *this* box stalled on its way to, or with, her...

Of course, you may not get a response anyway, but if you do get her address I strongly suggest that you let her know - nicely but firmly - that until her other long-overdue books start moving again, I'd say she's not a candidate for a bookbox. [Her profile, as of June, stated that she was having financial troubles; this wouldn't have stopped her from wild-releasing books, but does suggest that she wouldn't welcome a bookbox in any case...]

 

Thanks for the heads up too!

 

so I didn't know if maybe she'd been doing better recently. I do know - from personal experience - that she has a history of holding books & boxes for *long* periods of time. For my bookray that was over a year.

Sent a PM to give laevina a heads up..

 

laevina 8 yrs ago
Sorry!
Thanks for the heads up - I've sent a PM to AKSarah to discuss.
This book box did stall going to her last.

 

AKSarah 8 yrs ago
OK
Thanks for the info. PMing the next person now.

Whoop!
The box arrived! I have already contacted the next participant http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/Lazu/ about the box, but I wanted to post here that I received it today. I have two weeks before I have to mail it and that is actually perfect because I get paid again on the 8th of December. Woohoo!

Looking forward to reading some of these really fantastic books.

 

I got a reply via BookCrossing PM that http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/Lazu/ is bowing out of the cycle. Need a new name or final destination address. Will mail the box out the weekend of December 8.

 

Hi! Thanks for waiting a long time for this book box. I will PM you my address for it's final destination.

 

My post office was out of large flat rate priority mail boxes, so this one is divided between three boxes. The good news...I added several more than I took. Hope you like my additions! Looking forward to reading your journal entries.
