Complete Thread
My books are all fine and reserved for the VBB. I do the same as lauraloo and keep them in a separate place so they are not released by accident.

 

I think I am well set. I also keep my books for the VBB separate and marked "reserved." I'll double check, but I'm *USUALLY* good that way.(Hopefully now I don't find any mistakes and make a fool of myself for bragging ... LOL)

 

Books are here and waiting to be claimed.

As many of you know I was looking for someone to take over both this VBB and the Mystery VBB I host and had a couple offers of folks who may be willing to do the hosting, but after much consideration I have decided to continue to host both VBB's as I do enjoy it and I know many others do as well.

I have SO SO many books here to share with others what I have decided to do for the next rounds is put many, many more of my books into the VBB's so as to give these books a new possible home and move them on so as to lighten my load (so to speak).

It will of course make the majority of the books on the list mine but that is fine with me and hopefully it will allow you all to find some books you might want to read.

I appreciate the many pm's received from people concerned about me and my path forward with Bookcrossing as while I admit it has been seriously disappointing lately to me(and others) overall I do enjoy it and hope for some positive changes in the future.

I hope you all will continue on with me in this VBB journey and Happy Bookcrossing!

 

As I also commented over in the Mystery/Thriller thread, thank you so much for continuing to host this great VBB! :)

 

Thank you, bookstogive for continuing to serve as our host. This is a wonderful VBB and you are an amazing host. I can imagine how much work goes into this to keep it going and that is much appreciated.

 

I just saw this discussion (I'm not on the site very often these days) and want to add my thanks to you, bookstogive, for so many years of patient hosting!
