I got invited to join a book mail chain. You are supposed to send a book to one person indicated by the chain and then give six friends your mailing labels to then pass on to six more of their friends. If everyone is able to continue the chain, you end up with 35 books in the end.

Unfortunately, I am having trouble finding four more people to pass the chain along to. Would anyone be interested in this? If so, email me at novaaa@aol.com with your address and I can send you the chain information.

I once joined a stamp mail chain.  I mailed my 50 or so postage stamps (my family collects stamps) to the person at the top of the list and never received just one answer.

I got invited to do the same bookchain mail earlier this summer by a co-worker. I gave her the The Standard Answer: No, thank you.

Why bother to do all that and get God-knows-what in terms of book genres (a dozen crap romance novels, anyone?)  and book conditions when you can trade to you hearts content here?

Chain mail in all forms is a scam. Say no and don't bother your six friends.
