ABC (Alphabet) Bookrings - US version - Books Beginning with the Letter W

Here's how it works:

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

Happy picking!

My pick is Without Warning by John Birmingham. I have PMed the next person. I will mail later this week.

Will pm southernfryed for an address. She's up next on two other rings I'm expecting so will probably give it a few days hoping they both get here and I can either send them all together or at least just make one trip to the post office. If it takes too long, I'll go ahead and send them.

Neither book is really my cup of tea but I will keep Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah. I'll most likely pass this on to another reader at some point. Will get these moving again ASAP.

I have chosen "Welcome to my Planet" by Shannon Olson.

At one time, I did have this book in my possession and never got around to reading it. Maybe this time, I will read it.

I will mail the "W" books on asap.
Profile Image
I almost confused this ring with a Bookbox I am expecting. I received two rings in one box. Luckily, I have not mailed it out. A heads-up would have been nice.

I will be selecting Why Mermaids Sing - C.S Harris. Moving rings along when I get next address.

Again, sorry about the confusion. I did send you two PMs about both bookrings. I don't appreciate being criticized on a public forum like this. I don't think that it is a nice thing to do.
Profile Image
OK, it's over. An obvious miscommunication. Maybe the BC PMs failed (again).

Let's move on.

Profile Image
I chose White Witch, Black Curse because sadly, the print in the other book was too small for these aging eyes. :(

I'll get them on their way as soon as I have the next address. Thanks!

I have chosen "Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Coast Trail" by Cheryl Strayed.

My book is added and will check with BookLovinMama before I send the books along, but they will be out by Monday!
