Complete Thread
This is a VBB for Young Adult/Teens/Middle school age books. If you are interested please post here and send me a PM.

I would start out with 10+ books, each participant would need 2 seed books to start and with each book they remove from VBB when it is their turn, they will need to replace it with another book. The participants would hold onto their books unless someone requests it from this VBB. After a couple of rounds if your book hasn't been chosen, please trade it for something else. I would like this to be an ongoing VBB if there are enough people who want to do it.

If you have any questions feel free to ask!

Well...
I was thinking of possibly starting a Newbery medal/honor VBB, but some of those might be a little young if you're looking for books for teens..

 

Hyphen8, It should be fine, this VBB is for middle school to high school age, which is 11-18. I'll go ahead and add you so if you decide you don't want to do it just let me know. :-)

Oh, *there* you are! Spacedog, I thought maybe you'd gone inactive.

I tried to float the idea of a Newbery VBB last month but nobody responded. Maybe if you post there we can drum up a few more folks?

Count me in! Thanks, JennyC!

 

Bkind2books: Great! I've added you to the list!

 

I'm going to see if anyone else wants to join, but I'd like to start this soon, I can always put someone new at the end of the list.

 

Once I have the seed books and links from the participants, this will be ready to start. I'm keeping it open if anyone else wants to join, I can add them at the end or on the next round.

 

I would like join this. This one sounds nice. :)

 

Sonkku: Sending you a PM for your seed books and links. thanks for joining!

 

I sent the list to Laurelar.

Thanks for letting me play!

JennyC1230, if you don't want me to use the graphic novel, let me know and I'll switch it out with something else. I didn't think to ask first, sorry! (But I did see that you have at least one graphic novel in the VBB already.)

 

I sent the list of books to RCOUFan.

Sorting the books out then I will send the list to the next person: Bkind2books.

My choice
I chose: The Clockwork Three by Matthew J. Kirby - http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/12671956 (RCOUFan)

I add: Into the garden by Virginia Andrews http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/777599/

 

I am the last in line, once I make my choices, I'll wait a month or so and start this again. You can leave your unchosen books on the list, if you want to. I will leave them on the list unless you tell me to remove them.

 

Taking out:
Pretty Little Devils by Nancy Holder - http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/12052424 (Laurelar)
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare - http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/11488912 (ksloan23)

The New Policeman by Kate Thompson - http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/8171484 (JennyC1230)

 

This is the end of Round #1 of the VBB. I'm planning to take a month off, so people can read some more books to put in. If you don't want to be on the list just let me know. If I don't hear back from you, I'll let you know when it's your turn and you can decide whether you want to take your turn. :-) You can leave your books in the list if you want to or you can take them out. My suggestion would be to leave it in if you want to go another round.

I'm not going to ask old participants to add 2 more seed books in the next round. But if someone new joins I will ask them to put in two seed books. That's fair, right?

Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for playing!

Round #1 is done, Round #2 will start at the end of June, if you want to join let me know! :-)

 

from ksloan23: Down a Dark Hall
from Sonkku: Riddle of the Stone Elephant

 

I'm going to start this again in a week, if you want to exchange any of your books or need a list of the books you've put in let me know. If I don't hear from you I will assume that you want them on the list.

New participants are welcome, you will need to add 2 seed books to the list, then when it's your turn you can pick one book for another book. Let me know if you want to join for round #2. :-)

 

Sent the book list to Laurelar to start off Round #2.

No problem, you might be skipped this round since it seems to last 2 weeks (or less) and I'm about to start it again. I will put you on for the next round after this one. It will probably start at the end of September. :-)

 

I'd better check to see what I have for this VBB!

 

Sending the list to Laurelar to start the 3rd round!

So here goes:

I'm going to remove Red Badge of Courage since it has not been picked over the last few rounds.

I'm going to select Whirligig and A Season to Die (and by a strange coincidence they're both hyphen8's - don't know how I managed that one…)

I'm going to add 3 for the above plus an extra (because I'm trying to whittle down my shelves - DH rolls his eyes every time a book-shaped package arrives…)

I am planning to do another round of this VBB, at the beginning of May. If you want to be in it again let me know. Let me know if you want to keep the same books you have in.

**I made a mistake and Laurelar is short a book, I had the wrong book title/author with the correct BC link, she wanted the book listed. :-( I offered to let her look at the revised list and see if she wants to take another book in it's place. So Laurelar may be contacting you for another book soon.

 

Thank you!
