"We all know books burn -- yet we have the greater knowledge that books cannot be killed by fire. People die, but books never die. No man and no force can abolish memory... In this war, we know books are weapons."
I agree that a story about how it got to Paris would have been wonderful. I never dreamed when I left it at one of my local grocery stores that it would end up in Paris, but you never know with wild releases what will happen. This is why I love Bookcrossing!
I love the bit about "I am with him in Brazil"-our books really do have characters of their own don't they? And some people just really get into the spirit of bookcrossing and take our books on fantastic journeys.
