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.
