Well, here is the thing.  I get a lot of box-o-books request where I don't need anything off someone's shelf.  I find books were they don't need mine.

So here is my thoughts.  If I could get a group together, then we could all search everyone's shelf can create a want list.  Then set up a chain of mailings.  You might have to mail twice, but you could end up with books from many folks.


Box goes out with all request books from starting member..then goes to A (they take out theres and put in all requested)...mail to B. it goes around in a mailing circle.   The other option depending on how many people we get is to mail everything to one person and have them start the chain.


Anyone interested?  It would be a way to trade a lot of books with low shipping cost.

Can you extend the offer to non-boxer members? I think this would be something I'm interested in...

I am not a boxer but was until this year.....

I felt bad declining box requests and usually got things for shelf variety instead.

I would be interested in more info on how it would work.

Also open to doing boxes with others as long as there are books both actually want.........

Take Care,

This sounds a bit like a travelling box, which might need to monitored by the Games Moderators and require credit deposits so make sure to check in with the site before starting it. All members (not just BoBs) can participate in travelling box games and the can be a lot of fun. If its run as a vitual box, you get to do the same thing, but with less postage costs because you only need to mail your books to the person getting them in the end.

Check out the Games Forum for existing Virtual and Travelling Boxes and other games. Its a lot of fun over there!
