This arrived here today, I'll need some time to make my selection and find replacements - thanks so much for sending!


I'm going out of town very early tomorrow and before leaving I doubt I'll have time to list the books I've taken and the ones I've put in, but at least I finally managed to get the box put together and on its way to the UK. The person next in line said she wouldn't be back until next week anyway, so I hope you won't mind that I've kept this a day over two weeks. I've tried to put in a good variety of books while keeping to the genre, and have put in a few which were near keepers for me, so hopefully others will appreciate them as much as I did. I took the liberty of reading a few in the box which I knew I wouldn't want to keep, although now I'm keen to read more by Bronwyn Williams because I really enjoyed that one. When I get back from my meeting I'll list the books I took and which I put in. Thanks so much for organizing this box!

Sorry about delay - work has been crazy. I sent the books off today in two cases to save on postage. I hope that's okay, they do all fit in one box, it was just over 2 kg even when I swapped some lighter books in.

Journal Entry 16 by wingpenelopewanderswing from Hasliberg, Bern / Berne Switzerland on Saturday, May 29, 2010
Is it because of the new website that I can't tell what books have gone in and which have come out?? I'd love to see the titles... I suppose I could copy and paste each individual bcid but it seems rather complicated! Am I the only one with this problem?
