Welcome to the Favourite Lines Bookbox.

You pick one (or more) of your favourite books that has a line that you love in it, you wrap the book and label it with the favourite line on the front and people pick the book based on that. It would be preferable that the favourite line it not the first line, then I don’t feel as much as if I am poaching other people’s ideas!

The box will start with as many books as I can fit in for under 2kg and should always have a minimum of 4 books to allow a range of choice for other participants. Please keep it under 2kg to keep the cost down to the £2.95 second class post cost.

When you receive it please journal it, I have put in a card with the BCID in it, please make sure this stays in the box.

Choose one book or more based on the favourite line and add your replacement wrapped and favourite line labelled books. Can you also make a forum post here and let us know what favourite line you picked and what book it was.

Please PM the next person for their address and send on to them. Remember to journal when you “release” it and to “catch” any books you remove.

OK awesome, I have enough players now, so the order will be:

1. Plum-Crazy
2. caroline-m
3. dolph1n
4. Cfreckle
5. Silver-Greece
6. Flutterbies9
7. foreternity - Box is here
8. greenbadger
9. Reetpetite
10. Tattoolady
11. Jules5

then back to me

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

I've taken "Anton was, to his great embarrassment, not very good at black magic, which was why he had reluctantly called Terry Parkinson, Occultist and Roofer (generous Rates for Pensioners)." This is More Scary Kisses. Also chose "I couldn't believe it, I had broken the law simply by not wearing clothes. This is The Humans.

I seem to have a bonanza of books today! This has come in; the final book in a series has returned home and I received my Valentines bookbox too (stashed until the correct day & not too long to wait now). What do I read first I wonder?

I have sent a pm to the next in line so I'll have a check and decide what to put in here first (and type up the line - you would not wish to try and read my handwriting I assure you!) before I decide what to take out. Ooh, lots of book excitement.

The radiator on the wall next to him had more personality - the narrow bed Sophie Hannah.
