When asking for a trade or RABCK, don't be afraid to give me a list of books that interest you. Most items marked TBR, I will be releasing when I'm done and can reserve it for you or for a bookring or ray. I won't think you're greedy if you mention a number of books that interest you nor will you annoy me by checking my TBR section :-) It helps me in setting up bookrings to know which books are of interest to people. So, go ahead and send me a list, even if it's long. I can't promise you'll get them all, but it makes it easier to get any.

Unless we make specific arrangements to the contrary, if there is a lot of interest in a TBR book being held, I'll probably make it a ray. However, I'd prefer that my bookrings and rays remain as low-key and low-pressure as possible. Please don't avoid getting a book you want because you're afraid you already have too many or afraid I will hound you endlessly to pass it on faster. However, PLEASE NOTE: A To Be Released ring or ray means that I either have not yet read the book or have not yet gotten a sufficient number of participants that I want to send it off yet. When you sign up for a TBR ring/ray, you are accepting the fact that you don't know (because I don't know) when that ring/ray will begin and that no amount of hostile PM's will change the way that ring/ray is handled by me. Ok, enough of the small print; have fun with the rings and rays!

PM me if you'd like to be added to any or all of them. All of these rings/rays are international and none will close until they come home to me. In order to conserve space, I've listed the current order as well as who has it in the book's journal entries. If you're the last person on the list, you'll be sending the book back to me so PM me for my address.
