Sent a note to BookWormInUsAll to obtain the mailing address.

Replied to your PM, and got a "CATCH" of one of your books I released in an LFL this past February. You may already know this if you receive BC Release Alerts. ; ) Exciting, nonetheless, as I RARELY receive Journal Entries of LFL Releases...OUR lucky day!!! ; ) My Little Island (Reading Rainbow, 1987) by Frane Lessac http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14388812
Profile Image
I was excited to see the journal entry. Most of the books we drop off a our LFLs are not journaled, but we've seen kiddos with the books.

I put in a fourth paperback for you. :)

Question

Does anyone in this list read French? I might PM you to offer a book or two.....
Profile Image
Does anyone in this list read French? I might PM you to offer a book or two.....

What a kind offer, freezone. ; ) I can still say a few phrases in French, but do not read it with understanding. I do have two little nieces (1st and 2nd grade) who are learning French at their school this year though. ; )

I just received this Surprise Paperback Bookbox, and since love2cook has asked to be skipped, you are next in line. Off to PM you for your address, and make Journal Entries for the books that arrived. I will delay this week's Post Office run until I hear from you, so I can get this sent out this week.
Profile Image
Am hoping to now get this mailed out on Monday 7/18 when I'll be out & about for two doctor appts. ; )
Profile Image
Sounds good...thanks for the update
You're welcome, Meekachu07. : ) Would love to get this sent on, but I've been checking on and off all weekend, and still no word. I have two doctor appointments tomorrow, and a trip to the Post Office to make. I will check one more time before I leave for the day. Crossing fingers. ; )
Profile Image
Just saw this, and sent my address to Meekachu07
Profile Image
Okay...thanks, freezone. Hope everything is going well for you.
Profile Image
Expected delivery date is Thursday, 28 September 2017.

RE: :)

I will add you to to the end
Profile Image
Tuesday, but because of starting a job on Wednesday, haven't really dealt with the box. Will make my pick (Death of a Colonial by Bruce Alexander), and contact the next person on the list for address.

Thank you freezone for sending it to me; will get it out as soon as reasonably possible. Will post again after mailing it off.
Profile Image
Thanks for the update.
Profile Image
I didn’t receive my bookplates yet, so I hope I do by the time I get the books. How do I know who to send the books to?
Profile Image
Once your turn is up, someone will message you requesting your address to send the books to. Once you receive the books and make your selection(s) announce them here but don't say which books you're adding. Then you will message the next person on the list asking for their address and send the books that way.

Feel free to message me if you need to
