I'm going to post this in a bunch of different Forums, that way we can get some pretty diverse people :)

It's always so difficult to find someone that boxes the same types of books you like to box, so post here what kind of books you enjoy, and what kind your shelf has, so other people can find you!  I hate to not get a good years worth of boxing going, and I'm sure you all feel the same :)

Wow, no paranormal boxers?  I know, a lot of people use those books for the Games forum, but well, it's a shot since there are so many others that don't play the games.  There have been a few people to respond to this same thread in the Love & Romance category though.  Hmm...

I used to be a boxer but it got to the point where I was saying no to almost everyone becuase of the lack of paranormal/romance on their shelves. The biggest problem I see is that most of the books are highly looked for and people want credits for them, that and most are wistlisted so they never make it to boxing. I have tons of books TBR that fit your catagories but all are wishlisted.

I'll start my boxing back up but i'm not sure if I have anything good right now :)

I am new to all of this and would like to box  my paranormals but every time i post one, It is on someones wish list and it takes it off my bookshelf ....you guys have been on here alot longer than me...I was wondering do alot of people get upset if you say no to them?

I read mostly paranormal/romance and fantasy .....but if I run out of books to read then I will read reg. romance....but I try not to. hehe

I have one other question how do yal boxers get your book list so high? Almost every book I have put on is claimed already.

I know these are dumb questions but I was still wondering just the same...lol

I get a lot of books through FreeCycles, and also go to my UBS a lot.  I actually have a thread on the book bazaar where you can post your wishlisted books, and I will try to find them at my local UBS.  I personally like to read a lot of paranormal stuff, and prefer it over any other genre, but also like mysteries a lot as well.

Courtney I posted a box of books offer to you, but if you can't find anything, I will understand :)  My shelf is lacking, I need to finish some books, lol.

I'm a boxer, but my paranormals are almost always wishlisted, too.  I recently listed about a dozen paranormal books and only Sleeping with the Fishes hasn't been requested.  And only two others weren't wishlisted. 

Besides the paranormals I like mysteries and science fiction.   My shelf has a lot of both, plus a scattering of other genres like romance, true crime, etc.  Very little non-fiction.
