I removed seven books and added ten.

Do the postal employees use these boxes for football practice or something? {rueful grin} Will make my choices (and find a new box) soon - many thanks!

Journal Entry 23 by JennyC1230 at Woodstock, Georgia USA on Friday, March 29, 2013
The Bookbox is here! The box is falling apart, looks like it was drop kicked from New Hampshire to Georgia. There's also a fragile thing inside. Not sure who put it there, it's not media mail. I guess I'll pack it in the new box and send it on to the next in line. Send me a PM if you put it in there. My curiosity is piqued! :-)


Journal Entry 24 by JennyC1230 at Woodstock, Georgia USA on Saturday, March 30, 2013
Since the box seems to have been opened and a glass music box placed inside between New Hampshire and here, I am going to journal all the books inside, that way we'll know if any books are missing from the box.

<---Here is a picture of the music box found in the Bookbox.
Thank you Bookstogive! She told me how to post a picture in the journal entry. :-)

Journal Entry 25 by JennyC1230 at Woodstock, Georgia USA on Saturday, March 30, 2013

I have bookstogive's address and plan to mail it early next week with a new box, since the post office smashed this one pretty good.

I decided not to include the music box because it's not media mail and I've heard the recipient can be charged for 1st class mail, if they find something besides media inside the box. :-S
