Round 7: US Non-Fiction VBB . Let me know if you would like to join

**New participants always welcome!**

Got this from Debbie4OU, who said it was okay for me to pick it up to begin again. If she wants to step back in to lead it at any time, that is fine with me.

The guidelines :

Each person will add 2 "seed" books to the list. If for some reason you are unable to at this time, let me know. You can join anyway.

Each person will have 7 days to make their selections and additions.
Please be timely in mailing your books out if selected.

There should be plenty of books on the list with my books and the seed books. If you see the list and have books that have not been picked in more than two rounds, please swap out the books.

You may add extra books to the list anytime-just let me know. if you aren't ready to choose a non fiction book, I can put you down at the end of the list for a second chance or you can ask to be skipped.

I will keep the participant list up to date on this thread, and will PM the next person with the current VBB book list. When you have finished making your choices, please PM me back with the books to be removed and added to the list. I will then PM the next person with the current list.

Also, make a note on this thread for everyone to see. Thanks.

It is your responsibility to PM the person who needs to send you the books you have selected. Also, please write on this thread when you have selected, and when your books arrive.

Post here if you are interested in joining.

I will send you a PM with my 2 seed books.

I will send you a PM with my seed books within a couple of days.
Profile Image
Will send you a pm in a day or two (as soon as I can figure out what to add)
Profile Image
But I too will need sometime to go through my book and find a couple of seed books...once I have them, I will send them your way
Profile Image
I did not realize debbie4osu wasn't running this anymore, although I guess I should have figured it out. I will PM you with my seed books.
Profile Image
...maybe it will help me get some of my non-fiction TBRs read? (Ha! Never mind that it will also mean I have more TBRs coming in...!)

Anyway, I'll take a look around when I get home. Any guidelines/restrictions on what sorts of non-fiction we're talking about here?

I was thinking of these, but if YA books are too "light" and you're looking for things that are more substantial, I could do these as a two-fer and count both as one book for the VBB.

As soon as I have a little free time (maybe this weekend) I'll get it organized on my computer. Hope to start in a week.

YA books are fine. I am only looking for nonfiction. They don't need to be bundled. I think a varity is good for everyone.
