Complete Thread
Round nine is nearing the end and wanted to get sign ups for round three going. The box will start with 3 books. I will send it off to the first person who then can make their picks and replace with an equal amount, but not revealing the books they added. Please reveal what you took in the forum. Please keep the box to 3 books as I want to keep shipping affordable for all participants.

Rules are this: 1) has to be a paperback, doesn't matter what type of paperback
2) no romance or westerns 3) please only share books that are in good shape

HI77 6 mos ago

The package arrived a few days ago. I thought I'd come here and said so, but it doesn't look like it. lol

I'm taking out:

-Poirot Loses a Client By Agatha Christie

I should have it back out on its way again this week.


has this box moved along? I have books that I want to add! :)


I've been so busy I didn't realize the last message was from a month ago...I will check


HI77 5 mos ago

Unfortunately, it seems that the package I remember taping up and mailing, has gone MIA.

I've also had the additional misfortune of putting aside the receipt with the tracking number on it somewhere and losing it. I'm having that kind of year. I hear a lot of other people are as well! LOL

Since the package hasn't shown up, and I can't prove I sent it, I've decided I will just send a new one and leave it at that.

It went out in the mail today:

9114 9014 9645 1834 8701 36

I will follow up with jasperreads to see when they can ship


if they can't/don't respond, I have enough books to start it from my point


Okay. I will give them til this weekend, but last time I messaged them they responded pretty quickly.


Alright, I will send a new package of books to Ollie to get this thing back rolling




Yep, you're in


I have the books and address, so the restart will begin tomorrow.

Thanks to those BCers who placed them in the box. Now, to journal them.


Thanks for the update


Have pm ed Samid for an address and hope to have them out early next week before winter weather hits.


Thanks for the update


Since the limit is being kept to a reasonable number of books (shipping is stupidly expensive anymore), I'd love to join in as well.


I will add you to the list

I had already read one, kept the other 3

Evening by Susan Minot
Dewey by Vicki Myron
Just Breathe by Susan Wiggs


Box received tonight! :) I'll make my choices and PM heartthumper tonight. I plan to do a run to the post office later this week so I'll get this sent right back out.

(Edit to include selections)
I've chosen to take these two books:
Moloka'i by Alan Brennert
Iron House by John Hart


I wanted to get this out right after I received it, but life had other plans. It's on the way now!
