Journal Entry 4 by BOOKWORMINUSALL at Mesa, Arizona USA on Friday, June 23, 2017
Julius arrived safely today (Thursday, 6/22/2017), with his entourage of WILD THINGs, just in time to join me for a mid-morning Matcha Tea break...ICED, of course...as the forecasted high today is "only" 115!!! ; ) While it's a "dry heat", I can painfully "feel" each increment of the rising dew point and humidity levels indicative of the approaching summer monsoon rain, and the locust have started their "singing". ; ) Julius and I bonded immediately, as neurological problems (different than his), are also on my list of health challenges. With that in mind, and a "down day" for me, this Bookbox arrived at a good time for me to be able to help Julius figure out which "stowaways" were suppose to have started out on his Journal List, while I stay in...out of the heat today...it was too much for me the past few days. First, he delighted in "Story time" as we read through his Journal Book. He told me about his "Ancient Heritage" and showed me photos of his Cat Club friends. Afterwards, we got down to the WILD THINGs Bookbox Business at hand!!! ; ) After removing the books meant for Wild Release here in Arizona (I verified them all by checking the JE entries, and I will make JE entries for each one after doing those for the Bookbox), it seemed as though Julius brought along some Feline Friends who were not listed on the beginning Journal List, but were meant to be according to their Journal entries. There is also a Dog who is on the list, whose JE says he is suppose to be Wild Released in Arizona. Julius had two more hitchhikers who escaped from his Journal List, who were yolked together & designated by JE entry to count as one selection from the WILD THINGs Bookbox. This post is long, as I'm listing updates with links to the books, that I hope will save you some time and be of help to you, erishkigal. ; ) If I were able to edit your list for you, I would've gladly done so. This summary is the best I can do. ; )
UPDATES...that need your attention, erishkigal:
THIS DOG (may want to remove from beginning aka start list):
Putting on the Dog (Reigning Cats & Dogs Mysteries, No. 2) by Cynthia Baxter http://www.bookcrossing.com/journal/14280582
***Book had a BC Traveling sticker taped to the front with your lime green sticky note and the JE release note reads...“for AZ Wild release in a not-so-wild-part of Arizona"...so, when I go to mail the Bookbox (I have already PM'd azuki for address verification), I'm planning on Wild Releasing it on a bench outside the Bark Avenue Pet Resort and Animal Hospital...a top destination for dogs, cats, and small animals. ; )
THIS BOOK WAS NOT IN THE BOOKBOX (may want to remove from beginning aka start list):
Creature Cozies (Berkley Prime Crime Mysteries) by Assorted
*** Last JE reads “Reserving for Wild Thing bb”...no release note was made.

P.S. And I didn't want to make a Journal Entry on this one that is NOT part of the Bookbox, but one of the six that arrived for Wild Release here in Arizona, until you have a chance to make a Release Note for it. ; ) Just wanted you to know it did arrive safely. ; )
