Anyway, the box went in the mail today, DC # 03103490000122772803; it's smallish, so hopefully it will survive the long trip safely. My choices follow (those who'd rather be surprised, stop reading now):
I chose the Cherry Mine Disaster book and Without Looking Back, and I added Disasters and Heroic Rescues of California ( http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/11561564/ ), Endurance ( http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/11561562/ ), and Ada Blackjack: A True Story of Survival in the Arctic ( http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/11282960/ ). Enjoy!

Also still in the box:
Escape (Perihan Magden)
A Stolen Life
Disasters and Heroic Rescues of California
(Since the box started out with two different books called Trapped", I thought it was appropriate that it continue its travels with two different books entitled "Escape"!)
Thanks for letting me play!
