This book is to be left in the box. It is for tracking the "Books I Have Actually Read" Bookbox. Make a journal entry on this book when you receive the box and release notes when you send it on to aid everyone in keeping track of the box. If the box itself looks rough, please replace it. Thanks.

I am running low on reading material and rather than make a visit to the used bookstore, I thought I would start up a bookbox in hopes of getting back some good reads.
What I am looking for: This box is only for books that you have read entirely. You don't have to give them rave reviews, but I am looking for interesting stories that you at least thought you would like because the back cover sounded intriguing. If you loved the book, all the better.
What I am not looking for: Please don't include the likes of Grisham and King, stuff that most everyone has already read. Also not applicable are self help, how to's, old biographies of little known celebrities or wannabes, weight loss, cookbooks, romances ect. I am looking for a good story, not for someone to unload unwanted titles they have haven't gotten around to wild releasing. edited to add (from here on out)- Please don't include books that are part of a series. To make them worthwhile, you need the whole set.
As stated in the thread to start this box, participants must receive the box and ship it back out within a week, two at the most if "life happens." I would like to receive it back to enjoy the contents without prodding and numerous reminders. It is a good idea, once you have the box in hand, to ask for the next participants address immediately in case there is trouble contacting them instead of waiting until the day you are ready to ship.

Here is what I have to include. I have read all of these and most were chosen at thrift or UBSs by me because I thought they sounded intriguing/interesting. A few came from other BCers.

Journal Entry 11 by guinaveve from Mason, Ohio USA on Monday, October 19, 2009
Hooray! The box has made it home. I can't wait to go through it.

I am cleaning up my BC shelf and making sure that what is on my online shelf is actually on my real life shelves. If this is a kids' book, my kids probably have it. If it is an adult book, I probably loaned it out and didn't get it back. Otherwise, I am just not sure.If you are the finder of this book, welcome to the site. Please make a journal entry so that I know it has been picked up and found. To do so is free and you can do it anonymously. You can read the book or not, keep it, pass it on to someone else you think might enjoy it, or leave it in a public place like I did.

Are you sure you want to delete this item? It cannot be undone.
