[CLOSED] ABC (Alphabet) Bookrings - US version - Books Beginning with the Letter M
I'll start the ring out by posting 2 books whose title starts with the letter M to the first person on the list. Articles (a, an, or the) don't count -- look to the next word. So, for example, "A Streetcar Named Desire" would be considered an S-book. "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" is a T-book.
So, I send the package with 2 M-books to the first person on the list. That person takes *one* book out & replaces it with another M-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? :-)
The Players (names will be shuffled between each round):
Ollie1976 -- asked to skip
Stephario -- no response

The book package/box arrived with two Wishlist books - THANK YOU!!! I will bring these to bookclub as recommendations for next month's read.
I am going to choose The Magicians by Lev Grossman.
I have my M book read and will get it out as soon as I can get out of home - guess I need to go outside and shovel.
Is it all right if I pass both of them on? One I have already read and didn't enjoy and the other doesn't interest me. Sending a PM to the next person.
Absolutely. Our rules say: 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.
So, if passing them both on is your choice, that's perfectly fine.
Sending for Suezq60's address now so the package can be mailed soon ....
We had a mass exodus at work that left me as the only employee... I'm finally getting some time off. Thank you for the understanding. I'm going to give it a week or so before I bombard her with the N's.
After looking at my messages, I realize I was thinking of the O books that I recently received from innae. No, I don't think I got the M books...
As you know by now, jmsmom has graciously offered to re-start this ring, so if you'll just send her your address, M-books will be headed your way soon. Happy picking!
I was in a car accident recently and then had surgery last week. I have the M and N books ready to go-- I just haven't had the chance to send them out, yet. My car was also totaled. I am not usually a staller -- I promise I will get these out as soon as I am able to. I have everything ready to send, I just have to get to the post office.
Thank you for your understanding. It's been a rough month with work and the accident.
Thank you for being kind about my massive amount of time.
