There's only two rules for a books eligibility into this "Beastly Bookbox":

Firstly, the title must include a creature of any description. It MUST be the actual name of the creature not the general type, so dog, salmon, eagle or bee would be okay but NOT animal, fish, bird or insect.

For example...."The LION, the Witch & the Wardrobe" - yes!
"My Family & Other ANIMALS" - no!
Hope that makes sense :o)

Secondly, real creatures only....no dragons, unicorns etc

My usual "rules" apply:

1. There must be a minimum of 5 books in it. You can take out up to 4 books & please send on one for each one you remove.. Feel free to add extra as long as....

2....the package weighs under 2KG. This is is just to keep costs down. (Postage is currently at £2.95 second class for up to 2KG)

3 Please journal the date the bookbox is received (BCID will be in the box - please leave for next person!) & sent on & of course, journal any books you remove.

4 As a courtesy to other readers please only put in books that are in a decent condition.

5 Fiction only please.... any genre you like but please try & mix them to give others a choice.


Aiming to send out mid-May.

Going to have to have a rethink on the books I put in, when I took it to the post office it was over the 2kg and was going to cost a fortune to post. Will repackage and post again!


Right I have weighed a lot of books this week and according to my scales the box is now 1.7 kg, so I'm back off to the post office tomorrow and the parcel will be winging its way to lizzie stardust.

Released 5 mos ago (7/1/2018 UTC) at A Book box, -- By post or by hand/ in person -- United Kingdom

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Will be on the way to lizzie stardust tomorrow.
