The V books are safely in my hands!
(They arrived packaged with the M authors, so I will be posting on that forum thread, too.) I have chosen a book to release - The Viscount Claims His Bride http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14648825 - and have added my own V book to the package and will send for the address of Lane1088 tonight! Will pop in and let you know when I've sent the books along!

 

Complete Thread
Here's how it works:

I'll start the ring out by posting 2 books whose title starts with the letter V 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 V-books to the first person on the list. That person takes *one* book out & replaces it with another V-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? :-)

I received them at some time this past week but as I was at the beach, i only got them today. I am going to take " Vampire Dreams".

I'm trying to figure out which of my "V" books to send out. Once I do this I will send these back to Iwillrejoice and update here when I do.

 

The books are on their way back to iwillrejoice. This was a fun bookring.

The tracking number is: 9549 0132 4773 7268 2411 30

Just arrived home last night from an extended trip, & found these in my collected mail. Velvet Song by Jude Deveraux & Vintage Murder by Ngaio Marsh. Thanks for sharing, everybody!

This concludes the V book ring.
