corner corner BookCrossing BUG bites again!

Two members from different countries meet via book in 3rd country

I made a quick plan to escape Ohio for a trip to Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. I then knew I should start a Challenge in the forums. At this link, you will find the Easy As Pie Road Trip Challenge.

It wasn't until I was at the end of my Canada journey and almost out of books that I realized I had a book titled The Millennium Bug Debugged with me. I had inadvertently grabbed a book not too fit for wild releasing anywhere but lo and behold it was caught. I read the journal entry today in my inbox and I couldn't be more tickled to learn that a member named "Erbie" from the Netherlands was on a trip to Canada like me and found my book!

While we never met in person, BookCrossing has brought us together via the BUG book! So it is safe to say, Netherlands + USA = Canada

It is a small world after all, and BookCrossing, despite the book's content or cover picture is bringing folks together all while making the world a library. If you want to know what Erbie thinks of being bitten by the "BUG", then please click here
