Cat Haiku--Join this Bookring!!!
11 journalers for this copy...
One hundred fifty poems--
Better than catnip.
Hilarious collection of cat-centric poetry.
Is it not lovely
The way my fur wafts through the
Air when you pet me?
A bookring is when a book passes from person to person based on the list of members involved. A bookring book is never released into the wild since it should end up back with the person who registered it.
To join this bookring (or any other bookring of mine) please private message me and include your location and shipping preference (US only, international, etc.). I will be glad to add you to the list. New members are added all of the time so be sure to check the list of participants before you mail the book to the next in line just in case it's changed since you got the book.
Once you are a bookring member, you will receive the book from the person listed before you. When you receive the book please make a journal entry stating that you’ve received it. Then read it as soon as you can (no absolute hurry, just be reasonable please), and journal again with your thoughts, ideas, or opinions on it. You’ll then need to private message the person on the list after you for their address. Mail the book by media mail (it’s cheaper!) and make a release note so that we can track it. Then sit back and watch the journey continue!
The members are as follows (mailing order will change as new participants are added):
cyberkedi in Georgia, USA
katssokrazy in Georgia, USA
tchouli in Georgia, USA
Momathome in Illinois, USA
thescreaming in Maryland, USA *

*back to me at the end, to be given to my favorite Cat-Only veterinarian's office in Honolulu!

WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Update Sept 19th - took a bit longer than I thought, but I have been in contact with IceAgent. We work very near each other, so I will be hand delivering the book tomorrow.
The haiku's are great and some of them made me laugh right out loud.
I read it twice cause it was nice.
My fav one is:
Visitors come. They
Coo over me. Ignoring
Them, I wash my rump.
So true at my house!
Aug 22, 2008 - asked next person in line for their current address
also included the (broken - sorry) bookring "Cat Dependant No More" so that it can keep moving.
You read books; I like
Ton lie on top of them. We're
Tee hee :)
And seeing it is December:
A tree to climb, light
Cords to bite, presents to prowl.
I love Christmastime.
The illustrations in this book are lovely.
EDIT: briskel was next but I have been unable to get in touch with her via Pmms, posting on the Bookring/Ray forum on BC site or posting on the Yahoo Aussie BCers group.
So, I am now trying to get in touch with lilacea who happens to live in the same city as me.
CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:
Sent off to AnnaLibrarian via Sea Mail. May take a while to arrive, as she is in the USA.
For the record, I had difficulty getting in touch with: Elspeth, JustJen, lilacea and briskel . That is why I had to skip over them all to AnnaLibrarian.
