My two additions are in the envelope, and I will contact Booklady331 to see about passing the books on to her!

 

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

Well....
not sure what's up with that. Tracking said it was delivered on Monday. Suddenly today it says it's being returned to sender due to insufficient address. Wonder how they delivered it in the first place with insufficient address. Anyway, I'll check again with Books and Music and try again once it gets here. I'll be out of town though on Fri. and Sat. so unless it gets here in time for me to do it before then, it'll be the next week.

I have the two W books but neither is really my cup of tea. So I am adding a few more that I have and will send on to the next person. According to the list it is adrienne10.

 

Sending the book box on its way to Lynnwood, WA today. Tracking number is 9449011298370610590190

I added several books so there are now 6. The next person can feel free to keep 4 and just send 2 as before or do whatever they would like.

 

This bookbox has arrived!

I'll make my decisions and hopefully receive what the plan is from iwillrejoice when I PM (right after I post this.)

PM sent. Thanks, adrienne10.

 

I'm not going to make it to the post office before I leave town. I'll get the box sorted when I return and send it on late next week.

I have a question: There are 5 books in the box. I have 3 I can put in. I thought this was a bookbox of 2. What should I do?

In this game, there are only 2 books in the "box". Feel free to keep or release the extras. Or mail them on, if you wish, although you're not obligated to do so. Thanks for asking!

 

Tracking for the bookbox:

Estimated arrival is 11/12/19
