Rules of the game:
I'm sending photocopies of the first page of 5 books to the first person.
Each photocopy will be marked with my BX name and a number. The title of the book and the author's name won't be visible.
The person who receives these, can take out 1 excerpt and replace it with another; then, send it to the next person.
Here's the list of bookXerpts:

*1 iliotropio
*2 iliotropio (Plum-crazy out)
*3 iliotropio (Fifna out)
*4 iliotropio (okyrhoe out)
*5 iliotropio (Schmusefluse out)
*1 Plum-crazy (atalante3134 out)
*1 okyrhoe (LESEHEST out)
*1 atalante3134 (bluecat07 out)
*1 Schmusefluse
*1 bluecat07
*1 Fifna
*1 LESEHEST

Each participant should journal here which excerpt is taking out/putting in and send his/her address to the person whose book he/she is requesting.
Well, I hope everything is clear. If not, ask me for more details.
Let's play!

Unfortunately this surprise bookXerpting has been stalled by lovelovebooks, whom I've tried contacting but to no avail.
Anyway, many thanks to all of you who have participated so far and hope to have better luck next time.

Too bad. I have sent lovelovebooks the book my excerpting was from but it wasn't journaled either...
