51118 Heads up, new Traveling book! This is Dee's round.

If you're interested, come by the Traveling book thread and read the guidelines and rules, then if you want to join in and qualify please comment with your name!
51118 It's round 8 of our Traveling Book Society!

Thanks Dee for offering to host Hate is Such a Strong Word by Sarah Ayoub for this next book tour!

Recap of the rules:

In order to participate you must meet this basic member criteria:
♦ All participating members must provide an external email address as they are added to the list. If you would feel more comfortable, you can PM these to Wendy F.
♦ All participating members have been a part of YA-MA for a minimum of 3 months.
♦ All participating members have a minimum of 25 comments made in the group.
♦ All participating members still take part occasionally in topics.
♦ We prefer that all participating members must meet all criteria. However, if you meet at least one, and would still like to participate, you will be asked to ship the book out via UPS, FedEx or registered mail, with a valid tracking number that will be forwarded both to me and to the person who is next to receive the book.

When it is your turn with the Traveling Book, here are the guidelines. Please note that they don't have to be followed, but they're what adds to the fun of this idea.

1. Feel free to add a few notes on the pages, or highlight favorite lines. It'll add to the next person's read.

2. Sign inside the front cover of the book.

3. Include a local postcard, or use a snapshot where you live. Jot a greeting if you feel so inclined.

4. My favorite part, post a picture or two in this thread of you with our traveling book. (This isn't necessary, just fun. You can get creative with your picture too, if you prefer not to show your face. It's fun to watch the book move in this thread.)

5. This is done on our merit, so everyone will have to pay the shipping to the next person on the list, which means that everyone will pay for shipping once. This may mean that a few of us will pay shipping Internationally.

In addition, this list is not going to be compiled in a first come first serve manner. As people join you will be arranged in terms of optimal shipping. Our goal is to keep each person's shipping costs down by shipping the smallest distance that we can (it doesn't always work with International shipments), and to minimize damage that may be caused by shipping. (thanks for understanding.)

6. Please try to read and mail out the book within 10 days of receiving it so that the book moves steadily. We know this is hard, but just do the best you can.

In the end the traveling book will be returned to it's original owner along with all the goodies to treasure. It is our hope that they will then take a picture of all the postcards and paste that here in the group for all to see.

Taking names now!
51118 I'll message you when I'm ready for it. Sorry for waiting so long to respond!

Welcome back to the challenges Carina! Must be weird to just join in, when you used to run them. Hahaha. :)
51118 Hahaha, exactly! Which is why it didn't feel weird to me when they were having sex and whatnot. It wasn't like wild teenagers getting it on. It was (view spoiler). Yeah, he was sixteen, but it made sense that when I was reading his voice he didn't feel sixteen.
51118 Our bookstore has it shelved as adult too.
51118 He's not though, not really. He's actually a man. (view spoiler).

51118 I love Feed. It's one of my favorites.

51118 I completed my first one. I believe I'm post #17.

Goodreads TBR: All I Ever Wanted by Vikki Wakefield
51118 I'm pretty backlogged with books, if you don't have a time frame on when you would need it back, I could borrow it and read it.
51118 I've never heard of it, but I clicked in to read the synopsis and it looks like Gremlin has read it too. You're the only two on my friends list though.
51118 Just any member who is interested in offering up a book for the travels can do so. Traveling books always work best if they're not easily accessible, like an ARC, something that's out of print, or a book not available in the US (since that's where the bulk of our members are), which is why we've had a lot of Australian books.

I believe Dee has a book ready for the next round, we're talking about it. But keep it in mind if you decide you want to host another 'moderator' round.
51118 We try to stick to a certain part of the country/world at a time. It's going to be headed to the west coast now.

BUT, I think I'll be starting up another round here shortly, so stay tuned. :)

Also, we're pretty close to each other, with you in Chicago and I just outside Detroit.
51118 I have the book on my e-reader, it doesn't give me page numbers.

51118 I don't actually, it was something I read a while ago. I don't even remember which author it was...
51118 That sucks though, lmao. It makes me hope that they see how manic the fans are and decide to finally get together and actually do something!

I think Simon was the best casting in the movie too. I just found JCB better than I thought he would be. I loved his dry way of delivering Jace's one liners.
