Virtual Book Box in English for the Italian Forum

Books in Round 5

Rules for Round 5:

La lista dei libri disponibili è pubblica, quindi non c'è bisogno di mandarla per mp: la aggiornerò personalmente di volta in volta;

Quando sarà il tuo turno, riceverai un mp con il bcid della box e dovrai fare una JE su BC.com indicando i libri che hai scelto e specificando:
nick del proprietario - titolo - autore - link al libro su BC.com;

Avrai a disposizione massimo 1 settimane per fare le tue scelte e potrai prelevare dalla box massimo 2 libri; Dovrai sostituire i libri scelti con altrettanti titoli.

Oltre ai libri scelti, dovrai inserire nella JE anche i dati dei libri da te inseriti, in modo che io possa aggiornare la lista;

Una volta fatta la JE con i dati dei libri prelevati e inseriti, potrai inviare il bcid al partecipante successivo;

A questo punto non ti resta che inviare il tuo indirizzo ai bookcrosser che corrispondono ai libri che hai scelto e mettere da parte, per chi li sceglierà, i libri che hai inserito nella box;

Dopo la lettura ogni libro estratto dalla BOX dovrà proseguire il suo viaggio: potrai inviarlo ad un altro corsaro o metterlo a disposizione per un ray, oppure liberarlo ITW.
