Journal Entry 1 by MyaStone from Cary, North Carolina USA on Friday, July 28, 2006
This box is currently US only and the only requirement for books is that they be bought at a library sale. I thought it was a nice way to share books and help support our local libraries, and I'm glad I found a few people who agree with me. Its also given me a chance to go to a few different libraries and scope out which have the best offerings.

Rules for this bookbox are pretty much the same as all others, but for propriety's sake i will put them down again:

1. journal entry when you receive the box and ship it off. i'd love it if you write which books you took out and what you put in.
2. please only keep the box for about 2 weeks
3. i have never done a bookbox before, but i get the impression that mine is on the smaller side, so it shouldnt be too hard to fill up. please put in as many as you take out.
4. please replace the box if it is falling apart.

The box will be going out next week. The order is:

bookpatch, CA
innae, CO
Tribefan, OH

Journal Entry 12 by MyaStone from Cary, North Carolina USA on Tuesday, November 21, 2006
yay! the box has returned back to me safe and sound. thank you all for participating. i admit i have read alot of those 'stalled bookring/ray/box' forum posts lately, so this has really been a great experience. i have to get to work, so i am holding off opening the box until i get back home (otherwise i will never leave!). i am really hoping to increase my wild releases, so hopefully most of these will end up traveling again.

thanks again, A-team (aak, so excited, must...leave...house...now...)
