Journal Entry 1 by winginnaewing from Aurora, Colorado USA on Sunday, July 20, 2014
My mother-in-law passed this to me, and these little books make GREAT bookbox journals -- so I will find a good bookbox to use it as that.

Headed out with the A-Z bookbox

The box is starting with 26 books, one for each letter. The individual book's journal will indicate which letter it is for (there is also a sticky note with the letter on the book). If you need to switch around what letter the book is representing, please journal the change. In any case...have fun!

Journal Entry 7 by wingGoryDetailswing at Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Wednesday, April 29, 2015
The bookbox arrived safely today; many thanks! I was pleased to find this little book inside, as I'd released a copy in a geocache a few years back. The book includes a number of quotes from Native Americans, including Geronimo, Black Elk, and Mourning Dove, and is illustrated with some of Curtis' photographs taken in the late 1800's and early 1900's. A handsome little book, and a poignant one.

I haven't done an A-Z bookbox before, so this one might present some entertaining challenges in choosing suitable replacement books!

Update: My choices and replacements are listed below; stop reading now if you'd rather be surprised. (Mailed, 5/4, tracking # 9114999944313897202165)

If you aren't familiar with Bookcrossing, take a few minutes to check out this very cool site. Bookcrossers LOVE books, and more than anything, they love to read books and then set them free for other people to find and enjoy. I would love it if you would leave a journal entry -- you can say where you found the book or how you liked it when you read it. Then, when you are ready, pass it along for someone else to enjoy! Thanks and happy reading!

Journal Entry 19 by BOOKWORMINUSALL at Mesa, Arizona USA on Tuesday, August 01, 2017
Received innae's US Bookbox - Colors and this little Journal Book today (Monday, 21 July 2017). https://www.bookcrossing.com/forum/20/542280 At first glance, it appears that some of the books have a color in one of the Author Names, and others have a color in the Title. If both are acceptable, that may make it easier for others to join in. ; ) I won't be able to take a closer look and make my choices until perhaps Wednesday. In the meantime, I will continue reading this lovely little 3" x 3"Journal Book, which is quite interesting to me. It is filled with some fabulous black and white photographs, and quotations by some well known Native American Leaders, including Chief Seattle, Mourning Dove, Red Cloud, and this one by Lone Man [Isna-la-wica] - Teton Sioux..."I have seen that in any great undertaking it is not enough for a man to depend simply upon himself."...from the "One Sky Above Us: Unity, Individuality, and Custom" Chapter.

Journal Entry 20 by BOOKWORMINUSALL at Mesa, Arizona USA on Wednesday, August 02, 2017

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Checked the Forums one last time to see if anyone else was interested in this round of the Color Bookbox before I sent it home to innae. One last quote to share from this Journal Book travelling with it...from Chief Joseph in the "The Sweet Breathing of Flowers" Chapter:

"The earth is the mother of all people, and all people should have equal rights upon it. You might as well expect the rivers to run backward as that any man who was born a free man should be contented when penned up and denied liberty to go where he pleases."

Joseph [Hinmaton Yalatkit] (1830-1904) Nez Percé Chief


HAPPY READING!
