Oceans of Life

My 11 year old granddaughter has requested that I make this journal for her. She absolutely loves anything that deals with the ocean. This journal is called OCEANS OF LIFE. There are so many species in the oceans; there are some that have never been seen. My granddaughter wants to learn all about as many different types that you can manage to find on the internet, books, or whatever. She would love to see pictures and read stories about them. So please, take the time and add a couple of entries, with poem, prose, pictures, drawings or whatever your heart desires.

This is your time to share with your Bookmooch friends what is underneath the seas and oceans!
All I ask is not to change anyone’s work, write over it, or cover it up. Keep within the two week time limit, and then post it to have someone else mooch it. When this journal is full, please send it back to: Debbie Hoggan Bookmooch ID: hogganclan

Letters to Grandma

This is a traveling journal to be passed around BookMooch members. My Grandma is in her late 80’s and is in a nursing home. During an arts & crafts class they covered a journal & she gave it to my mom. My mom thought it would be fun to pass it around BookMooch and would like everybody to write a letter and/or story to my Grandma and when it is full she will give the journal back to Grandma to read. Take as many pages as you need and please try to pass this one around quickly, as Grandma is getting up there in age. It is a very light journal (only about 50 pages or so) so this one might even be cheaper to mail via first class. My Grandma’s name is Lahoma (she is Indian) and she loves to read but she has a hard time seeing so please try to write (or type) big & clear. Thank you for participating in this journal. When it is full please contact me so I can mooch it back, BM ID: mspeegle Thank you!

Vampires – The Allure of the Undead

Vampires – The Allure of the Undead is a BMJournal dedicated to pictures, drawings, fiction, poetry, and any other creative endeavor related to vampires. Are you frightened of or fascinated by these creatures? Who are your favorite vampires? Why do you find them so alluring? What is your take on the vampire mythos? This is the place to talk about it! Decorate a few pages with your thoughts.

Please do not change or alter anyone else’s entries and keep within the two week mooch window time limit. After you are finished with your entry, please put the journal back into this same page I’ve created for it here at BookMooch so someone else can mooch it.

When the journal is full and complete, please contact me (BM username: thegretchen) and I will mooch it back.

Thanks, and have fun!!

In this journal you get a front and back of a page. The front side is your locker door, so decorate it as you would a locker door. The backside is the inside of your locker door, so decorate it how you did (or wished you did) your locker in high school! If you went to multiple high schools, feel free to decorate more than one “locker”.

Pictures, drawings, text – anything is encouraged. Mascots are welcome! Get creative and have fun!

Please limit yourself to two weeks with the journal. Please do not alter anyone else’s work.

When the High School is full, please send the book back to me. You can reserve it for me and I will mooch it back, or you can email me for instructions.

And the Army Goes Rolling Along!

This bookmooch journal was started by my on 7/1/08. Add bits, blurbs and pictures (scrapbook style) to honor a soldier! It can be someone you are related to, someone in the news, or a friend of yours! Get creative! Add pictures of when the soldier had long hair and another of the buzzcut! Add a soldier from the Civil War, or the Iraq War! Robert E. Lee or Tommy Franks! You are not bound by a timeframe, the only tie has to be the Army and it has to be a person. Please limit yourself to 2 adjacent pages per moocher, and one soldier per moocher.

Standard Rules – Do not alter another person’s work. After two weeks in your posession, please list it for mooching at the same page it was created.

Please feel free to honor a fallen soldier, but due to the sensitive nature of this context, no anti-war propaganda. This is not about right or wrong, war or no war. This is about our soldiers.

If you receive the journal with anti-war propaganda, please either remove the propaganda or cover it up as best you can. This is the one exception to Do Not Alter clause.

When the journal is full, please send it back to me. You can do this either by emailing me for instructions or reserving it for me and I will mooch it back.

Thanks! Happy journaling!
