this would be for children's books that might be assigned for school reading (e.g. newbery and newbery honor books), and also chapter books that aren't part of long-running series. so harry potter books would be okay, but not books like the babysitter's club. also, no picture books.
please send the box with delivery confirmation and post updates to this thread and PM me when you receive/send. thanks.
here's the order (PM me to join): 1 spacedog (MA) --> sent 10/17/11 2 woodlandscribe (NY) --> sent 11/19/11 3 Earth-VS-Soup (AK) --> received 12/8/11 4 annascat (location = ?) 5 hyphen8 (HI) --> received 8/2/12 6 k00kaburra (CA) --> received 9/5/12 7 news-hound/OphEliaGirl (AZ) 8 Skylerdragon (MO)
I would like to join this one, if I can be towards the end and the box is not huge-esque :). Also, I am doing a similar one myself, though more for teens/young adults, so if you would like to join mine, let me know.
Yes, I did, sorry! I posted abou it but I keep forgetting to remind people when I post on threads =D. I better get crakca-lacking on reading some more stuff to have ready when it comes. I got sidetracked from my bookcrossing books by the 39 clues series!
Hello all. I'm sorry it took me so ludicrously long to move this box along. For a full explanation, please see these threads. To sum up, my Great Aunt was put into hospice care in late December and died shortly thereafter. This sent me into a depression I'm only just now really starting to recover from, and bookcrossing was something that fell by the wayside during this time. http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/7608210 http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/7608228

I have no way of contacting annascat because her messages are not enabled, and her only forum activity was in September of last year. I think it's safe to say she's MIA, but if you are still out there please enable your messages and contact me! I contacted hyphen8 this morning about moving the box along. I'll post as soon as I hear from one or the other! If I don't hear from them within a week or two, I'll contact the next person on the list, and so on. I may add a few more books to the box before sending it out, too, it depends on how quickly I hear from folks. I'll keep you posted.
I'll be sending the box out to you today. I would say that I hope you get it quickly, but since you've said that you'd rather it take the full media mail time to get to you so you can read a bit, I hope it reaches you in early August. :P
The delivery confirmation number will be: 0305 2710 0003 1666 6293
I'm going to mail it today as soon as I finish packing for work. It should show up as trackable online by this afternoon.
Due to massive family problems I am no longer active on B.C. Before all the bad things happened I contacted Skylerdragon and never heard back. I can't remember if I heard from spacedog as to whether I should return the box or release the books so can someone please tell me? I know it's been FOREVER but I am trying to make good on what I owe as I am no longer going to be participating in BC. Thanks!
