This book box has been stalled with me due to me being in the hospital and very ill. I am sorry and it is not like me to stall a book box. Thanks for understanding everyone.

Journal Entry 6 by ladybug74 from Dothan, Alabama USA on Wednesday, August 13, 2008
I received this box in today's mail. I can't wait to decide which books I will be exchanging! I've got a busy afternoon planned taking my daughter to the dentist after school and eating out with the family. I will make my exchanges and journal them tonight, then get this in the mail to the next person as soon as I get the address to send to.

Journal Entry 7 by ladybug74 from Dothan, Alabama USA on Wednesday, August 13, 2008
Okay....so I lied about making my exchanges later tonight. I did intend to do that, but I was so excited to have a whole box of books to look through that I could not wait. :-) I decided to go ahead and sift through this box and put something else off until we get back home tonight.

I took out 4:
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close by Johnathan Safran Foer
A Long Way Down by Nick Hornby

I put in 5:
The Pact by Jodi Picoult
Wicked by Gregory Maguire
Strangers by Dean Koontz
Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas by James Patterson
Jack & Jill by James Patterson

I see some other really great books in this box that I have already read and a couple that I already have on Mount TBR. I will get the box in the mail as soon as I verify the address that I have for HeresDeb, hopefully by tomorrow.

Journal Entry 9 by HeresDeb from Grayslake, Illinois USA on Tuesday, August 26, 2008
This box was waiting for me when I got home from vacation. I looked through it and saw lots of quality books! Like ladybug, I've read some but there are several I haven't. It's going to be hard to decide which to take and which to leave for others to enjoy. I'll journal again once I've made my oh-so-tough decisions.

OK, after some tough thought, I took out:
--The Pact

--Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas

I put in:
--The Secret Life of Bees (#40)
--Poisonwood Bible (#99)
--Water for Elephants (#10)

I hope everyone else has as much fun with this as I did!
