I have been working crazy hours and have been getting in after eight every night. I've already chosen The Next Best Thing
( http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14349581 ) to share through an OBCZ, and replaced it with my own book.

Will send for the next address tonight, but the books will not be in the mail until Tuesday December 26, the day after Christmas, as Dad-i-Libri and I will both be diabolically busy until then. I hope that this is OK. Usually, I turn the books around in a couple of days.

NOTE: X-books are hard! For this ring, we'll take books with an X anywhere in the title. Thanks!

Here's how it works:

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

and I read the replacement today, but it's so bad....I can't possibly add it. So I'll need to read the *other* replacement first, then it will move along.

 

I'm reaching out to LynnGorman for an address.

The first book was much more young adult than I had planned. I'm reading a different book now and will get them in the mail as soon as I can.

 

Did you send it on to LynnGorman yet, BookLovinMama?

This concludes Round One of the X-Books ring. Thanks for taking part!
