Sign-up will stay open until we have a maximum of 12 people taking part and it will be international as long as there are enough people to post overseas.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
** A roundabout is a type of bookring, where everyone who participates sends one of their books to the next participant. And so the book goes round until it has been with every participant and every participant has read all the books.
** So first, choose the book you enjoyed reading the most in 2019 or the one that you most want to share with other bookcrossers. It can be from any genre, fiction or non-fiction, but must be reasonably light to post internationally. No hardbacks please.
** PM me with your shipping preferences and address (I’ll only use this to pass to the person who will be posting to you). I will do my best to match everybody up.
** I will send out a list of participants towards the end of 2019 and, in January 2020, you send your book to the next person on the list.
** You will receive a book in January. You read it and then in February, send it on to the next person on the list. Repeat until you have read all 12 books and your book has returned to you.
** Regularly visit this forum conversation to update everyone when you post or receive a book, so we can see that the roundabout is still working smoothly and no books have got lost.
SOME THINGS TO THINK ABOUT BEFORE SIGNING UP
** There will be a maximum of 12 participants and the idea is to send one book a month. This means you have to commit to READING and POSTING one book a month. If you don’t think you can do that for the whole of 2020, then this isn’t the roundabout for you.
** Please don’t mention the title of the book you’ve sent or received in this forum post - books should be a surprise.
** There may be a risk you’ll receive a book you’ve already read. But by signing up for the roundabout, you agree to post 12 books out and part of the fun is reading other people’s comments. DO NOT SKIP someone on the list just because they have read the book you are sending. DO NOT ASKED TO BE SKIPPED if you've worked out what book you are about to read - its up to you whether you re-read it, or just send it on, but everyone taking part should receive a journal entry on their book from the other 11 players.
** When choosing a book, please try to avoid books that have been used on previous year’s roundabouts (earthcaroleanne has a fantastic list on her profile page if you would like to check or get an idea of the sort of books sent).
And that’s it! Happy Reading
