Status message:


This charity was set up to act as a library for Bookmooch journals* that have not been requested for several months, and also to recover lost and missing journals. It is deliberately situated in an area with no current population, and will have an inventory including those journals held on 6 "shelves" worldwide.

If you find you have been taken off the friends list, please see the following:


I have been having a 'spring-clean' and have removed friends from the bmjl friends' list if they have been inactive on Bookmooch for 100 or more days. We may reduce this to 60 days unless the account has been vacationed and a reason for a long absence given. We are doing this time-consuming job in the hope that it will prevent so many journals getting stalled and lost. If you have a reason for a long absence and let us know we will not defriend you.


HOWEVER, it will not cut our workload unless journallers co-operate. If you have a request please check your requester has the bmjl logo in their friends' list.
If you delay sending check they still are active and want it before you send.
Add the following message as a review to each journal, unless it already appears:
This is a BMJournal not a regular book. You should be a friend of the BM Library bmjl http://bookmooch.com/m/bio/bmjl If you wish to join the project, type bmjl into the friend request block. A BMJournal is not yours to keep, the library returns it when completed and a slideshow made, to its creator. You mooch it, make an entry within two weeks of receiving it and relist it by the same number. Before sending it on make sure the person requesting is also a friend of bmjl by checking their friend list for the logo. If you add <> with between them with no spaces FONT COLOR = RED at the start and FONT COLOR = BLACK at the end, the review will stand out in red.
Thank you!



Keep journals safe and circulating. Please only send journals to friends of the library. Only moochers who consistently abuse journals shall be removed from these lists. If you wish to start journalling please contact us through BM email at bmjl or by email at bmjournals at gmail.com (substitute @ for at and leave no spaces).

What is Bookmooch journalling?
A bookmooch journal is a blank book created or handmade by a journaller on a theme. Each journaller receiving the journal adds a dated entry with their BMid on some aspect of that theme. The journals at http://bookmoochjournals.com/ show the latest journals listed by their creators. Eventually when completed the journal should be returned to its creator. Slideshows can be viewed on Bookmooch pages to see the entries made.

We have to found a new site to carry the slideshows for us (BOOKMOOCH!). New slideshows and those of circulating journals are being added to each journal's BM page as fast as we can! Send any photos or scans to be included to bmjournals@gmail.com About 300 slideshows have already been added to date.
At the left side of the page in the journal site is a list of years and months, below the Flickr photos, and these are clickable links that will take you to the entries of older journals.
Journals cover an enormous range of topics, and are created by journallers.
The differences between journalling and normal mooching are that the journal remains the property of the creator, and journals should be relisted within two weeks of receipt and passed on promptly.
I will send invitations to attract befriend the journal library to any Bookmoochers wishing to become journallers who have good ratios, and who will at least consider sending abroad. A glance at the friends list will expain why! If you can't send a journal abroad you should be prepared to find another (*journaller) who will on your behalf.
(*Preferably a journaller because without the trail of moocher and sender this leaves, we cannot hope to trace stalled or missing journals).
My advice is to try a number of journals before creating one of your own. If you are about to create one, see the guidelines in the Bookmooch wiki and the journal site and/or seek advice from us by mailing bmjournals@gmail.com. The urls are below:

A new round-up of available journals on the journal forum (with clickable links) is added approximately once a month.

We have to found a new site to carry the slideshows for us (BOOKMOOCH!) as our present site is closing in March, otherwise more slideshows would show in the latest page of entries. New slideshows and those of circulating journals are being added to each journal's BM page as fast as we can! Send any photos or scans to be included to bmjournals@gmail.com Over 200 slideshows have already been added to date.

Please become a friend of your local shelf as well as the main charity.


We need more volunteers to help man the library, particularly we need a shelf-holder for the Mediterranean and Africa shelf and for the Australasia shelf. Please contact bmjournals@gmail.com if you would be prepared to help!


These shelves will request stalled journals and those which have not been requested for a period of time in excess of three months. The shelf-holders will also be willing to offer advice and can be mailed about listing new journals, and adding slideshows, as can this central library shelf where the inventory is held.


Journals requested from here will be posted by the volunteer running the shelf where the journal is currently located, and when posted the requester will be informed from where the posting will take place.

This means all journals will cost 3 points and the points will be used for mooching stalled and 'lost' journals. It is hoped that, by the local shelf requesting stalled and misplaced journals, and the charity taking requests for journals, that the charity should be largely self-supporting, once up and running well.


Please make sure you always relist a journal by its BM number, as listed on the journal site, as shown here:
RElisting

Bio:



If you want to create a journal please contact me by mail at bmjournals@gmail.com so we do not end up with two people creating identical titles and to register it to be added to the journal site! Make them light and not too large - 4 to 6 entries a year is all that most journals get - 4 is average so 100 pages make take 10 years to fill! Put BMJournal at the beginning of the title, Make sure it's identifying number is clearly displayed in the journal and preferably bag it in a plastic bag before posting. Get it listed & linked by sending details to bmjournals@gmail.com. Number & title essential, pictures welcome.


This is the central page for the Bookmooch Journals Library Charity.
Bookmooch journals function as a part of Bookmooch, with some slight differences:
Journals remain the property of their creators, and should always be relisted on Bookmooch (only) within two weeks of receipt.
All requesters are encouraged to make an entry in the journal before relisting and sending on to the next journaller.
When a journal is complete or needing repairs the owner should be contacted to mooch it back. The owner will be the first giver listed on the journals ISBN/ASIN page.
If the owner does not respond to an email the library charity can be contacted at bmjournals@gmail.com or through Bookmooch.
When a request for a journal is received, please check the requester is aware of what journalling involves, by giving them these links:

Please always relist a journal with the ISBN/ASIN number you received it with - click mooched in your home page statistics and click give by the name of the journal! Experienced journallers, check it is correctly listed by using the link back to its BM page given in the journal site entry.
Journals listed without the correct ISBN/ASIN numbers lose their links to the journal site and slide show, their wishlist and lists of moochers and givers, and become untrackable. Please let your regional shelf know, or email bmjournals@gmail.com if you find any like this!

the Bookmooch Wiki entry on journalling:
http://wiki.bookmooch.com/index.php?title=The_BookMooch_Journal_Project

and BookMooch Journals forum:
http://bookmooch.com/m/forum/bookmooch_journals/

All journallers are welcome to join the journal forum on Bookmooch (accessed through your forums tag on your homepage). This is a good place to advertise a journal you have available for mooching.
The journal site has a description of journalling, and how journals can be created and listed. Please contact us through Bookmooch or the email given above for advice about creating a journal of your own.
The journal site also has descriptions of all the listed journals, with links to their BM page, and slideshows where available.

If you create a journal please make sure you put BMJournal in the name, so it is visible in searches, and can be traced if lost. Contact bmjournals@gmail.com to get it added to the site, and links connecting the journal site description to the BM ISBN/ASIN.
Please wishlist your own journals to keep track of them.
