Journal Entry 1 by wingPlum-crazywing from Brighouse, West Yorkshire United Kingdom on Saturday, March 01, 2008
Here's what we do...

I will send photocopies of the first page of Chapter 1 (not prologues) 8 books to the first person on the list.

Each photocopy will be marked with my Bookcrossing name and numbered 1-8. The title of the book and the author's name won't be visible.

The person who receives these, can take out up to 2 bookxerpts and replace each with one of their own....remembering to mark their BC name on & to number them.
(Please don't take more than one bookxerpt from each player)

The bookxerpts are then sent to the next on the list & so on.

You then PM the person whose bookxerpt you have selected with the book number & your address....& a surprise book will be on it's way to you!

Please aim to send requested books out within about 2 weeks of receiving the PM.

list of players so far...any new ones will be added at the end!

Will everbody please do a journal entry saying which excerpt is being taken out & put in.....& don't forget to send your address to the person whose book you are requesting!

The postman delivered the Xerpts half an hour ago and I'm already through :) Hard to chose... As I already know which two books to add to the pile I'll pass the Xerpts on to the next in line as soon as I get an address.
Thanks for hosting this, Plum-crazy, and thanks for posting it over, nikel27!

Journal Entry 19 by wolkenklang on Wednesday, October 15, 2008
After taking a closer look there remain four books I really want to read. Of these I'll choose iliotropio #2 and nikel27 #3. (I was also interested in Plum-crazy #5 and nikel27 #2.)

Plum-crazy No.1----taken by annadlx
Plum-crazy No.2
Plum-crazy No.3----taken by emlar
Plum-crazy No.4

Private Relations by Nancy Warren
nikel27 no.4.

If the Xerpts round is done, maybe each participant can post which books they have added? I'm curious which were in circulation and also which books' first pages I held in hands. Also, I am wondering if I had chosen other books if I had known which they were, and whether reading only the first page without knowing a book's title can make a difference in picking a book. Tricky.

I like Xerpting :)

Journal Entry 22 by kalise from St. Florian bei Linz, Oberösterreich Austria on Monday, October 20, 2008
There are quite a few books there that I want to read!! But I narrowed my choice down to two: nikel27's # 4, and chrismc's # 2. I've added 2 excerpts as well, and I will send on the whole batch on to the next participant ASAP! I'm totally curious about what the titles of the books are! :)

Sadly the BookXcerpts have gone missing in the post & haven't reached Scruffykaz. If anyone still has a fairly up-to-date copy of them maybe they could forward them.

If not, thanks for taking part everyone & as we can't do a second round maybe I'll set up another in the next few months :o)

Journal Entry 31 by wingPlum-crazywing from Brighouse, West Yorkshire United Kingdom on Sunday, August 09, 2009
I'm hoping to set up another round of Surprise Book Xcerpts shortly. Hopefully, the new round will be done by email rather than post (if I can workout how to do it!)If anyone is interested in joining again please drop me a PM.

Thanks for taking part & I hope you've all enjoyed your surprise books
