my apartment is completely overrun with creatures of all sorts, so tis long past time to box an assortment of critters and send them off to share! Like the previous WILD THING box, this will be a shrinking one, with each person sending the box on with one or two books less than s/he removed from it.
There are (of course!) numerous cats, dogs, and horses; there are also birds, whales, bear, amphibians, fish, coyotes,elephants.....oh, I can't think now what else... (I'm just off from a long day's journey into work....)... but there is a variety. There will be both fiction and non, and like the first box the animal (which needn't be wild) MUST be central to the tale.
Edited/added May 29:
ok, the journal for this box will be http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14328700
Semi-random Order of sending:
semi-random, as while I drew names,I aslo tried to accommodate desires to be later on the list~~so if you asked to be near the end and came out on an early draw, you were tossed back in ;)
Because it is a shrinking box, there will be more choices on the front end, but also heavier to send. The farther down, the less weight, but also the less choice. It will be fairly large to start, to ensure that those near the end still have plenty of choice. And hopefully, this Wild Things won't shrink entirely! LOL~~maybe now that tracking #s are automatic, maybe that will be less of a worry~
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/12388514 is the journal for the first WILD THING Bookbox, so this one will need another book (the box didn't quite make it home).
and this is copied from the forum writeup of the original :
Now for the slightly shrinking part~~ that translates to “I do want books to return, just not as many.” So the total number of books in the box will depend on how many sign up, and each person will take one or two more books than they put in the box, again depending on how many participants. I want there to still be a good selection for the last person to choose from, then it will come home .
Please be respectful and considerate of your fellow bookcrossers. Send on books in good shape, that you have read and think others will enjoy. No garbage, no Saddle Club type/quality, no Romances (not that I think they'd qualify anyway, but just to be sure :p)
