"The First Book: Go ahead, it won't bite. Well... maybe a little. More a nip, like. A tingle. It's pleasurable, really. You see, it keeps on opening. You may fall in. Sure, it's hard to get started; remember learning to use knife and fork? Dig in: you'll
never reach bottom. It's not like it's the end of the world -- just the world as you think you know it."
Wilkie Collins release... the book in the middle. What was it, and did you leave it there?
It was "The Woman in White" by Collins, and, yes, we left it there, in the company of the protected books (we: lils74 was there too, we had our own little meet-up and cemetery release tour). In case anybody ever goes to Kensal Green cemetery: Thackeray's grave is there too (but I didn't have any book by him with me...)
Great stuff ApoloniaX! Now you have inspired me to do some themed releases here, even though it's MINUS 15C....PS: We had just arrived in London (Convention 2008) and went for a stroll. What should we find at the foot of Emmeline Pankhurst's statue? A Dorothy Parker book! A few days later, at the Eagle and Child Pub in Oxford, we found 2 Colin Dexter "Morse" books. One of them, left by EmilytheGoat, had been there for THREE years. Whoohoooo!
