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

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 V to the first person on the list. That person takes *one* book out & replaces it with another V-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.

PM is on its way...

 

As you've probably noticed, these rings have been paused for a while now. I've been in the hospital quite a bit these last few months, & so my participation here on BC has been minimal, to say the least.

I'm feeling a lot better now, so my plan is to re-start the rings after the holidays.

Thanks for your patience & understanding.

 

iwillrejoice-take care of yourself first! Hope you are feeling better soon!

I have chosen Homecoming by Cynthia Voight. I will have the books in the mail to ravencat tomorrow. Here's hoping she isn't buried in the 21 inches of snow they received yesterday.
