Alphabet VBB round 14 (international), moving, still open for sign up

This is round fourteen of the alphabet VBB (international), with the title of each book starting (ignoring 'a' and 'the') with a different letter of the alphabet.

Participants can select any book(s) but must replace either the letter they've taken or one of the missing letters. I don't want to make it too difficult so there are 19 books, so that if you take one, you have a choice of 8 letters for the replacement. So if the list contained books beginning with letters A, B, C, and you chose the book beginnining with B, you could replace with a book beginning with B or with any letter D to Z.

Please put in the same number of books as you take out. The list is starting out as mainly fiction but other categories that you think will be appealing are fine (please no text books, religious pamphlets, travel guides, etc).

Please post choices and receipt of books to the thread.

Please post out books promptly. If any books are not received within a reasonable timeframe please let me know.

This is a new thread for round fourteen. The round thirteen thread is here:

Sorry, I forgot to put a note on my shelf before flying out. What with sporadic internet access while travelling & loss of computer & access when I returned, I’ve been off the air for a while. I will catch up with everything eventually, but it’ll take a while to be back to normal. I have a LOT of emails to get through.

I can wait until the end of the round.
Profile Image
I hope you had a fantastic trip! :)
Profile Image
I love the challenge. :)
Profile Image
Yes, of course. :)

I would like to join if possible

Yes sure. :)

I've heard from saskiasosmile who says she will choose soon.
Profile Image
It's been 3 months since I picked it up, and I don't remember its owner.
No hurry, just wondering...
Profile Image
It was put in by jasperthecactus, could you try contacting them again please?
Profile Image
Let me know if you don't hear back. From their profile I suspect they may no longer be bookcrossing, in which case I'll send you a wishlist book as a replacement.

I have just found the link for the past round, and I tend to agree with you...
Thanks for your kind offering; you don't need to. :)
