Bookring/Ray/Box Rules

1) Please send me a PM when the box arrives
2) PM the next person on the list to get their address
3) PM me again when you're ready to send it on.
4) If you are the last person on a ray, the book is yours to do with as you please at the end. Start another ray if you'd like, wild release it or keep it.
5) If this is a bookbox, remove what you would like and replace with the same (or more) number of books. If the box is getting beat up, please replace it. Don't forget to use media rate to save postage costs.

My first bookbox: Doubles Mailed 8/21/04 - Returned home 12/6/05
Since this was my first box, I wasn't smart enough to make a list of what I put in, but I think I started with about two dozen books. 18 came home, 4 of which were originally mine.

1) Bookaholic2 (New Jersey)
2) MrsJones (Ohio)
3) Adah-Price (Missouri)
4) Tabby-Cat-Owner (Arizona)
5) suefitz (California)
6) LaughAtlantis (Massachusetts)
7) awakeagain (New Jersey)

My second bookbox: Cookbooks Mailed 1/30/05 - Returned home 7/27/05

19 books in the original box; 17 came home, 3 of which were originally mine and 14 new ones for me to try. Thanks everyone!

1) echesketch (Virginia)
2) lilmztaz (South Carolina)
3) telson99 (Missouri)
4) DP31 (Illinois)
6) TJROTH (Washington)
7) MaryGrim (California)
8) nimrodiel (Illinois)
9) sistert (Maryland)
10) Kryta33 (New York)
11) awakeagain (New Jersey)

My third bookbox: Trade Paperbacks mailed 12/5/05 - home again 4/24/06!

I've started with 21 trade paperbacks listed below. Please PM the next recipient for their address when you get the box, replace one book for one book for one and try to mail on within a month. Since this isn't something you have to read right away, I think a month is more than adequate (most of the time) to hold a bookbox. If there are any problems, please PM me.


1) Mrsjones (Ohio)
2) Tribefan (Ohio)
3) Affinity4books (Texas)
4) Gothamgal (Ohio)
5) Tranq1 (Florida)
6) SpaceyStacey (New Jersey)- bookbox is here!
7) awakeagain (New Jersey)

My fourth bookbox - Thrillers - mailed 1/6/06

The exact number will depend on what fits in the box but I have about 40 books set aside. As always, you are free to take as many books as you'd like, but please replace each one you take with one of your own. I'd like to keep the box moving so please try to pass it on within one month of recieving. PM the next person at least twice before moving on to the next person on the list. Any questions, please PM me.

What exactly happened is a bit of a mystery. Apparently the box got to mnewman. After that it appears to have been put in a yard sale and many of the books were purchased. My apologies to the rest of the participants.


1) mnewman (Oregon)
2) tammywith2kids (Ohio)
3) ladyofunicorns (New Mexico)
4) Christine71 (Illinois)
5) surmisez (Massachusetts)
6) kbgoffe (Oregon)
7) Janastasiow (California)
6) awakeagain (New Jersey)

My fifth bookbox - Regency romances - never started

I have a box of about 30 Regencies just waiting for people to sign up. This is on hold until I get a few more participants!


1) bookreadera (Pennsylvania)

My sixth bookbox - U.S. Presidents - Mailed 1/6/06

Strictly speaking, this isn't my bookbox because the books are all from the shelf of my SO, Pixelmutt. He joined Bookcrossing and likes the concept but the actual work of putting the box together, getting participants, mailing, etc., he prefers to leave to me. So I figure I might as well make life easier for me and post 'his' bookbox on my shelf.

The bookbox currently has seven books with maybe one or two more to be added. I'm anticipating mailing within the next week or so.


1) LisaGriffith (Massachusetts)
2) Lilygirl (Oregon) - claims received but never returned the box
3) awakeagain (New Jersey)

This was a disappointing experience. The box apparantly got to the second stop but the participant hasn't journaled or returned anything. It seems all books are 'lost' in her possession.

My seventh bookbox - A - Z Bookbox Mailed 1/14/06 - Returned home 12/11/06

This will be a total of 26 books, one starting with each letter of the alphabet. I hope to be mailing within a week to ten days.

1) mnewman (Oregon)
2) innae (Colorado)
3) hak42 (New Hampshire)
4) Bunnylady (Wisconsin) bookbox is here!
5) bellachia (Ohio)
6) gomboggit (Oregon)
7) awakeagain (New Jersey)

My eighth bookbox - Non-returning bookbox (mailed 1/21/06)

I plan to move in the next year or so and, having moved in the past with boxes and boxes of books, I decided it would be a good idea to move many of my available books. I decided to start a bookbox in which participants could take out what they please with or without putting any of their own books in. The box would end its journey with someone who runs an OBCZ and the books would be offered there.


1) Wyldewomin (Massachusetts)
2) wss4 (Florida)
3) Tiatia (Virginia)
4) DoveiLibri (Florida)
5) napper (New York)
6) Janastasiow (California)
7) Tribefan (Ohio)
8) BunnyLady (Wisconsin) the box is here with BunnyLady. coffee-n-books is not responding so BunnyLady will release.
9) coffee-n-books (Virginia) - this is the OBCZ where the bookbox will end up. Please PM coffee-n-books for an address to send the box.

My ninth bookbox - nonreturning bookbox 2 Rec'd by solittletime 7/06

This will be done the same way as the first one. I've got between 40 and 50 books ready to go.

1) dittybopper (Louisiana)
2) Tribefan (Ohio)
3) Pyan (Wisconsin)
4) Bunnylady (Wisconsin)
5) schoolinathome (Alabama)
6) wss4 (Florida)
7) pugslie (New Hampshire)
8) solittletime (Maine) - this is the OBCZ where the bookbox will end up. Please PM solittlegame for an address to send the box.

My tenth bookbox - Regency Romances - mailed 7/25/06 - returned home 9/15/06

I tried this before and only had one person interested but am offering it again. I'll accept new participants as long as the box is still out there.

1) Vivyip (Maryland)
2) ThanksMom (Pennsylvania)
3) cmbohn (Utah)
4) awakeagain (New Jersey)

My eleventh bookbox - Cowboy/Indian Romances - nonreturning bookbox. - mailed 8/26/06
