A USA-only bookbox of young adult fiction making its way around the country.

Please make a journal entry here to let us know you got it. Message the next person on the list so you're ready with the address when you've made your selections.

Post with what you took out and what you put in. Please put in as many as you took out and keep the box roughly the same size so it doesn't become a monster to ship.

Thank you all for participating!

I was so happy to see this box on my doorstep when I got home. Lots of good books inside. My daughter and I will make our picks soon. I have to figure out how many I have to replace with.

I loved the insert you created. Very clever. I wish every bookbox had a slip of paper like this inside. Very organized. :)

Sorry for the delay in getting this one out again! I was out of town during the holidays, and the box just completely slipped my mind :(

This fast-moving box arrived today - in the same delivery as a bookring. Amazing how often that sort of thing happens...

I'll take a look and get this back out as soon as I can. Looks like there are still 19 books in the box; 5 of them are KateKintail's originals, but I'll be taking at least one of those.

Journal Entry 11 by winghyphen8wing at Honolulu, Hawaii USA on Tuesday, February 10, 2015
Ok, I made my decisions and now I just need KateKintail's address to send the box on..

Taking out:

The Golden Compass
Her Father's Daughter
Miracle's Boys
Peace Breaks Out
A Separate Peace
Waiting for the Rain

Putting in an extra since it fits and the box is headed home:

The Big Empty
The Boy Who Dared
Eyes of the Emperor
The Staircase

The box arrived home safe & sound! I hope everyone had fun with it. There are so many books in it I've never heard of, and a few familiar "faces" among them as well.

Thank you all for participating!
