This is the journal I'm sending to keep track of the "box of chocolates" bookbox. Feel free to record what you are taking from the box and putting into the box if you so desire. This is not necessary. But I would appreciate a journal entry on this journal when you get the box, and then again when you send it.

Thanks!

Buon Appetito, Your Holiness
The Cabal and other stories
A Passion for Chocolate
Black Friday
The Body Artist
Avant Guide to Las Vegas
Pop Goes the Weasel
Card Magic
Card Games and Tricks

Received the bookbox in the mail today. From a quick glance at these journal entries, it looks like your original books are all gone, AmyMS88! That's always good. My husband and son are also looking through the box, and my 5-year-old daughter wishes the Hello Kitty notebook was one of the books to choose. :)

We'll make our choices this weekend and then send it on. Thanks!
