[CLOSED] ABC Authors Book Rings - US version - Letter U

Complete Thread
The way it works is like this: I'll start the ring out by posting 2 books whose author's last name starts with the letter U to the first person on the list. That person takes *one* book out & replaces it with another U-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.

Oh, and all books must be registered on BookCrossing.com.

I think that's everything. Anyone want to play? :-)

Names will be shuffled between each round.

U Books
Well, after going to three thrift stores and the used book section of two local libraries I have come up empty on U Authors. These two books will be heading out to Southernfryed on Monday.

If you just can't find a book with an author whose last name starts with U, then you could just use an author with a U somewhere in their name. We've done that in the past.

I have chosen Rabbit is Rich by John Updike. I will be replacing with a book by an author whose name contains the letter u because I do not have one by an author whose name begins with a U. I hope this is ok!

Happy Thanksgiving day... my package arrived yesterday. I am taking out The Holder of the World (the one with a U in the name!!) which looks interesting. I still have to read my book with U author but will get to it soon! Will message Chicvolley99 for an address and get the package out certainly before the big winter holidays!

 

I also thought I had a U book to give out, but I can't seem to find one, so I will be sending out both books to the next person in line.

Messaging next in line for their address.

 

USPS tracking number is 9549012373839014431189
