Journal Entry 1 by Scarlett17 from Bexley, Greater London United Kingdom on Saturday, June 12, 2004
This is the notebook which will travel around the UK with my first bookbox. Please make a journal entry for the notebook - that way I can trace the path of the box. I'm wrapping the box in brown paper to try to protect it and hopefully to stop the postman from using it as a football. Please would you each do the same, or if the box is getting a bit worn would you mind replacing it with a sturdier one for the next leg of its journey!

The mailing order is as follows:
1. Booklemur (London)
2. Seanan (London)
3. Miss-R (Surrey)
4. Caffcaff (Kent)
5. Redhouse (Felixstowe)
6. Arturogrande (Leicestershire)
7. Purple-pixie (Nuneaton)
8. Quizgirl (Chesterfield)
(9. DianeO (Chesterfield) Unable to contact)
10. Gerenggat (Gateshead)
11. Added new participant - Blum (Slough)
12. New - Jeweleee(Bolton)/Josh72uk (Bolton)
13. New- Sterile (Burnley)

14. back to me, Scarlett17 (Cardiff) Box is on its way home!!!

Please only journal the books you are taking from the box. (I'm releasing mine as Controlled Release, Postal release, to a fellow bookcrosser, but whether you choose to make release notes or not, and how, is up to you.)

The books going into the box to start its journey are as follows:

Malka by Mirjam Pressler
Talking to the Dead by Helen Dunmore
Disgrace by J.M.Coetzee
More Than You Know by Beth Gutcheon
Ralph's Party by Lisa Jewell
I'll Be Seeing You by Mary Higgins Clark
On the Edge of Darkness by Barbara Erskine
The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro
The Other Side of Silence by Natasha Mostert
A Judgement in Stone by Ruth Rendell

I hope everyone finds something they want to read in here, and I look forward to the box completing its journey in a few months time. Oh, and please remember to include the red bookbox notebook before you seal the box up! Thanks!

The bookbox should be on its way Wednesday at the latest. I took out The Remains of the Day and added an Agatha Christie and an extra surprise...

Journal Entry 3 by Seanan from London, Greater London United Kingdom on Monday, July 26, 2004
How wonderful, to have a box of books delivered to one's door. Sadly, this time around, there was nothing for me in it - and the box is crammed so full, I can't even take advantage of opportunity, and relieve my shelves of a slender paper back.

Sending this on . . .

This has been delivered to me today, and I'm quite excited! Woop! Josh72uk doesn't fancy any of the books in it, there's a couple of the genres he likes but he's already read them so is passing this time. I'll not be able to post the box on again till after 15th January when it's payday, so I will make my choices just before then. Thanks for sharing these great books everyone and Happy New Year!

Journal Entry 18 by Sterile from Burnley, Lancashire United Kingdom on Saturday, February 19, 2005
It turned up early this morning. Great except the postie got his ear chewed. Whaaaaat! I said out of the landing window. 'Books, Mrs.' He said as he dumped it on the bench. Thankyou for passing on the box - just as I was getting desperate!
