Complete Thread
In the tradition of its namesake monster, after vanishing for a couple years, seemingly dead and gone, this bookbox has made its return! Hopefully the rest between rounds has given readers a chance to develop a taste for fangs again. **This round will also be a shrinking box. I am preparing to move, so fewer books coming back to me would be helpful.**

This will be a book box with a wide range of vampire stories. Whether you like romance or horror, classics or graphic novels, there's probably books in here for you.

This box will probably be ready to start late-May/early-June, so you have a month or so to find/read books.

I will need at least three participants to join the box in order to run it.

To join, just post and I'll add your name to the list.

Sorry overseas Bookcrossers, this one's US only to keep shipping down.

Participant list:
Loriped
GoryDetails
heartthumper
Shann24lvr
Azuki
Chicvolley99
Spatial (near end)
BooksnBeer (near end)
back to Emmejo

Bookbox rules:

*Try to make sure there is some variety in genres when the box leaves you. Keep in mind that the next participant may disappointed to find a box full of nothing but paranormal romance, or humor, or pulpy action stories.
*When you get the box please post here so we can track its progress.
*Journal all books you take out of the box. Please remember the shrinking aspect here, and take one or two more than you add.
*Make sure the books you add have the BCID in them. It seems obvious, but I have had times when folks forgot and I had to try and track them down.
*Books do not have to be the first in a series, but before adding them, take into consideration how they will read as a stand-alone. If the future reader is going to be completely lost, particularly if the series isn't easily found, consider finding it a home another way.
*Please pass the box on within 2 weeks. If something comes up and you are going to have to hold onto the box a little longer, let me know so we don't have to worry that it got lost.

 

But please put me near the end, to give me some time to read a few. I just gave away a couple of vampire books recently. :(

Edit 1 hour later: Hahahaha! I just received a vampire book in the mail that I won from a Goodreads giveaway! Too funny!

 

Count me in!

 

LOL. Count me in. I'll see what else I can come up with and read! I'm in Kansas.

I received the box a couple of days ago and had planned to mail it out before the 4th, but it looks like it will be going out either the 6th or the 9th. I will have my mom look through the selection and pull out what she wants. I'm waiting for the address of the next person in line.

Thanks for including me.

If possible, I would like to join

 

Added you! Welcome!

 

Unfortunately, I have been unsuccessfully trying to get a hold of Shann24lvr for months. I also posted an ISO that didn't turn anything up. At this point, I am considering this box stalled. Maybe Shann24lvr will reappear at some point, and in that case we can keep this bookbox going, but it seems unlikely.

Thank you all for participating! Sorry that it only made it about halfway down the list! At this time, I don't have the ability to restart the box, but maybe come spring I'll be able to start a new round, with the folks who didn't get to participate this time at the top!

 

But as I have read quite a few books intended for the box, i may be able to restart it. Not as big as the original one but at least the rest of the participants can enjoy it, and hopefully emmejo can find something new and interesting for all her hard work in starting the box.

I just started on a book, so give me a few weeks and I can send it out.

 

Thank you for your generous offer, Azuki! I'll PM the remaining participants and let them know you are re-starting the box.

(Sorry for the slow response; today was the first day I had my computer set up at the new house, and before that I could only check the web about once a week.)

 

Thank you to Azuki for restarting! Going through my choices now, and will message the next in line for their address.

 

Tracking # through USPS is 9549012373839085474245

 

I couldn’t help but invite them in. I hope they already fed!

 

They are on their way to BooksnBeer!

The Vamps are here at my house - partying it up. I am looking it over and still partying with the Vamps. In the meantime I'll get the next party address.

 

Unfortunately, the mail carrier left it out on the porch, in a spot where we couldn't see it from the window, and it got soaked. Most of the books got damp, although only a couple got very wet. I am going to try and dry them out before doing any JEs.

 

No way it was the rain and not the sun that killed the vampires???

Hope you are able to savage some of the books. I usually put some heavy weight on top and some dry towels as such at the bottom and some sheets of paper towels in between pages.

 

So far they seem to be drying well, but I haven't gone through to see if labels are damaged.

 

The books are dry and I journaled them all. If you didn't get a JE on a book you were expecting was in the box, post here so we can try to track down where it went astray.

Thank you all for participating, and a particularly enthusiastic thank you to Azuki, for re-starting the box after it vanished! I'll be PMing everyone when the next round is ready!

 

I am hosting the Dentist's Nightmare sweeps, over in the RABCK forum. Fang-filled tales are a perfect fit, so if you have a toothy read that you are looking to re-home, we'd love to have you!
