Released 6 yrs ago (9/30/2013 UTC) at Saint Paul, Minnesota USA

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Releasing Metaphorically into the Bookbox so people can see the books.

Put into The Medicine Chest Bookbox IV to look for a new reader!


Journal Entry 3 by wingGoryDetailswing at Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Monday, October 07, 2013
The box arrived safely in today's mail (just ahead of a rainstorm, too); many thanks!

Update: I handed the box off to eponine38 on Oct. 12. Enjoy!

My choices:

(Patient bio) Where is the Mango Princess?

(Doctor bio) Another Day in the Frontal Lobe

(Case studies) The Family That Couldn't Sleep, Rabid

(Fiction) Medicus, Still Alice

My additions:


(Patient bio)

With the Light: Raising an Autistic Child, Vol. 8, actually a fictional - but very realistic - look at a family dealing with their son's autism. While this is the last of a series, the episodic nature of the chapters makes it readable on its own, and it's very good.

(Doctor bio)

Swallow: Foreign Bodies, Their Ingestion, Inspiration, and the Curious Doctor Who Extracted Them ; this is a combination of biography and set of case histories.

(Case studies)

Asleep: The Forgotten Epidemic that Remains One of Medicine's Greatest Mysteries
Death's Acre: Inside the Legendary Forensic Lab, The Body Farm
Flow: The Cultural Story of Menstruation - this one does have several chapters on the medical aspects, though it's not "case histories" proper.

(Fiction)

The Anatomist's Apprentice
The Dead Shall Not Rest

Journal Entry 4 by wingeponine38wing at Winchester, Massachusetts USA on Sunday, October 13, 2013

My choices:

Adding:

Bag Balm and Duct Tape by Beach Conger M.D.
[fiction]
The Society by Michael Palmer
[patient bio?]
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
[not sure of category - part medical person (not Dr.) bio, part case study?]
Dead Center by Shiya Ribowsky

The BookBox was waiting for me when I arrived home tonight. I was excited about the books, Minerva was excited about the box, so everyone here is quite happy.

I have a few set aside to go in, but have selected one definite MUST HAVE/WISHLIST book and 7 possibles. My additions are at most 5, so I will have to make some tough choices, I think.

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

Journal Entry 11 by winghyphen8wing at Honolulu, Hawaii USA on Thursday, December 05, 2013
The box is here! I love this particular design of the little journals...but were you expecting people to actually write in it? It doesn't look like anyone has, yet. Maybe I'll add some more rubber stamps instead...

I'm half-way through a book that may end up in the box, so it might be a week or so before it gets back out.

Update 1/18/14: according to the USPS website, this box arrived in California 3 days after the ETA above, so it can't be blamed on the snowy weather. Go figure. Today's update says "Your item was processed through and left our SAINT PAUL, MN 55121 facility on January 18, 2014 at 5:31 pm. The item is currently in transit to the destination. Information, if available, is updated periodically throughout the day. Please check again later." Monday is a Federal holiday, so I'm hoping it will get to quietorchid on Tuesday...?

Restarting this as the Medicine Chest V journal. I'll post books here that will go in the box, and will also right them in the pysical journal, along with a description there of why I thought my book belonged in the Chest.

Journal Entry 19 by winghyphen8wing at Honolulu, Hawaii USA on Monday, May 04, 2015
The box arrived at my house on Saturday 5/2. I'll try to make my decisions soon, but things are a bit chaotic around here at the moment. I'll get the box back out as soon as I can.

P.S. I love these little journals; they're so perfect.

Journal Entry 20 by winghyphen8wing at Honolulu, Hawaii USA on Monday, May 18, 2015
Explanation for my family: what it takes to get the received book box back out of the house. (This is not necessarily the recommended order of steps.)

• Open box / find journal with BCID / acknowledge receipt (make journal entry)
• Locate / finish reading if needed / label & register books that could go into box if it hasn't already been done.
• Find replacement box.
• Decide what's going in & coming out.
• Make sure it all fits in new box; make adjustments to selections as needed; add any necessary stuffing.
• Make notes in journal about what's going in.
• Unpack box and weigh box/stuffing/contents in batches of less than 10# (weight limit of postal scale).
• Do funky math involving 10ths of ounces, but 16 ounces per pound. Grr. Write down total weight.
• Look up postage price. Write it down.
• Repack box (hopefully everything fits again). REMEMBER TO INCLUDE JOURNAL!!
• Add stuffing; seal & label box.
• Break down & recycle old box.
• Journal books put in and taken out, both here in the thread & individually.
~~~
• Verify next person's address.
• Add postage to box.
• Take to post office; journal release of box via mail, including tracking #.

As of 5/17, steps above the ~~~ have been accomplished.
