NOTE: X-books are hard! For this ring, we'll take books with an X anywhere in the author's name. Thanks!

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.

Question
Shouldn’t this be the X authors ring which is next in line?

Quite right. You caught me in the middle of an edit as I was just posting this.

 

I kept The Good Women of China by Xinran. Books are on their way.

Thanks, jmsmom.

 

Neither book is really in my reading alley but I'll keep The Scent of Jasmine by Jude Deveraux. My wife may read this or if not, I will find another reader for it.

I'll contact the next in line and get these moving again soon.

Received confirmation of address. Will mail tomorrow. Tracking:

Thanks, perryfran.

 

I'll be making my choice soon.

 

Sky Burial. I still need to finish my current book and read my X author book so expect a week before they get in the mail. I will be as quick as I can.

 

unable to register the book I read for this ring. I don't know what to do. I could send it to the next person unregistered and thereby keep the ring going. Maybe when book crossing is able to fix the registering bug then whoever has it at that point could register it. Not sure what to do.

You should be able to register it manually by skipping using the ISBN number. I’ve done that with several books recently.

 

using that technique last week but it hasn't worked in the last couple of days. I am not sure what to do except keep trying. Thanks for responding.
Just tried it again, still no success.

 

skip search, enter title, author, genre, JE by hand, do not enter ISBN. Click register, boom, done! I don't know if it will work next time but I finally registered this book. Whew! Sorry I didn't understand what you said earlier perryfran, you said clearly to skip using ISBN. Uhm, yup, that worked. Thank you

 

Books arrived and have chosen Neon Mirage by Max Allan Collins. PM next in line.

 

Books on the way to Southernfryed USPS Tracking# 9549 0112 5412 9239 3063 00.

Thanks, ravencat.

 

I am keeping When Red is Black by Qiu Xiaolong and pming Suezq60 for an address.

 

 

Thanks, Southernfryed.

 

The books arrives safely just before I went on work travel. I have PM'ed lane1088 but received no response. I PM'ed again this morning but see the note "Please Note: This member prefers not be be contacted regarding trades, swaps or wishlist exchanges." I asked to please let me know if they would like to be removed from the list. If I hear nothing I will move on to Meekachu07.

In the meantime I am choosing The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith. Thanks!

Um, just so you know, that message is displayed on every member's email page. It's a bug in the site.

Fair enough. But the fact remains that after two PMs they still haven't responded.

OK. Let's skip her. If she gets in touch at a later date, we can move her down the list.

Did you not receive it?

 

MmeClinton?

 

First, I apologize for not letting everyone know I had received the X books! I took out one, French Concession by Xiao Bai, and I did acknowledge that on its own page, but I completely forget the next step. Meanwhile, I contacted Dove-i-libri, have just finished my book to add to the ring, and they will be mailed this very afternoon!! Humbly embarrassed...

Adding my own, and they will be in the mail as soon as I verify the next address!

Thanks, Dove-i-libri.

 

So I put the books aside, and then Dad-I-Libri went to Georgia for two weeks for training for his new job. He's back, but no way over the next two weeks will he get to meet up with her.

So, long story short, I'm actually mailing them to her tomorrow at lunch time!
