Sent a note to BookWormInUsAll to obtain the mailing address. Deciding which to keep, which to send on and which to add.


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


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. :)

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


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.


Am hoping to now get this mailed out on Monday 7/18 when I'll be out & about for two doctor appts. ; )


Sounds good...thanks for the update


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. ; )


Just saw this, and sent my address to Meekachu07


Okay...thanks, freezone. Hope everything is going well for you.


Expected delivery date is Thursday, 28 September 2017.
Tracking # 9549012652517264156635

THANK YOU for hosting and including me, Meekachu07!!! : )

RE: :)
I will add you to to the end


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.


Thanks for the update.


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?


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
