Complete Thread
We're almost half-way through our ABC (Alphabet) Book Rings, & I was just thinking that it would be fun to do one based on authors' last names, when apparently rodespringbal had the same idea! But since she doesn't include US members because of our high international postage costs, she PM'd me & asked if I'd be doing an ABC ring based on authors' names for the US members. I had originally thought to do it when we finished the alphabet one, but I don't see why we couldn't start now.

So, if you're interested, let me know by commenting here!

The way it will work will be pretty much the same as the ABC Book Rings we're doing now, except instead of being books whose title begins with a particular letter, we'll send books whose author's last name begins with that letter. So, I'll start the ring out by posting 2 books whose author's last name starts with the letter A to the first person on the list. That person takes *one* book out & replaces it with another A-book, & then sends those 2 to the next person. And so on.

You post in the forum:

1. when the books arrive
2. what book you chose
3. when you mail the books to the next person.

That way we all know where the books are. The last person on the list sends the books to me.

Don't post the title of the book you *don't* take, or your new addition -- let that be a surprise. Only post the title you are taking out. Oh, & please journal the book you take out promptly.

I think that we should all be able to mail this back out within a week to 10 days. After all, all we're doing is replacing one book.

If by some chance, you just don't like or you've already read one round's offerings, you can either opt to skip your turn & mail the books on without taking one. Or you could consider it an opportunity for a wild release, & just take one out for that purpose (replacing it with one of your own). Your choice.

I think that's everything. Anyone want to play? :-)

OK!
We've got enough to make a go of this. Can you believe that we started the alphabet rings with 8? They've sure grown since then, & maybe this will too.

So, let me do a little reading & get ahead a bit, & we'll get this started. We'll aim for 8/1.

See you then!
