I second that, it is really interesting seeing how people interpret their turn.

... on a chair. But the lion stayed at home. Instead I took along a towel (one never knows what it might be good for).

BC Monopolists (Monopolicians?) all over the world keep their fingers crossed for you on the 6th, Vekiki!

Are those the bally's your ,making for the uncon goodie bags? I've been meaning to ask you to send me a picture as I have a similar idea and don't want to make mine too similar :)

Great release guys :)

just to let everyone know - At the minute, I will normally be updating points on the blog after each turn, that way it's easy to keep track of what I've done so as not to miss anything or credit anything twice - so don't worry if points you are owed are not shown up straight away.
Once my exams and coursework are over, I will try to update the blog & points once a week (ie after each turn and at teh mid point of each turn) when i can.

Would it help if I put a 'Point's last updated' timestamp on the blog header?

As long as you have emailled me with what points you are owed for what, it will get done at the next update
You'll know if I got your mail coz I'll always reply (if very briefly!)

Wow - I'm more impressed that she left with so few than that she arrived with so many - self control to the max!

We set our book Free in the Wild African garden (part of the Auckland Botanic Gardens), where it was picked up from the lookout rondavel (round, thatched hut) the very next day.

Nice work, looks like a really cool garden

It came in the form of the Rainbow room in the Cavern Club in liverpool. And hey, if a treasure at the end of the rainbow is a nice little club, with a beautiful wall painted by the Beatles, in which a cute guy sings beatles covers and you get to know fellow travellers, I would take that over a pot of gold any day.

What a great release this is!

Isn't there a beetles song called watching rainbows too?

Yes, but never released though. It is on Nagra tape 145A apparently (that would be the 145th tape of rehearsals for the rooftop concert, songs that later became 'Let it be'), one I don't have.

Sounds to be a great venue!

OK, so this may count as Team Racecar tooting our own horn a little bit. But I wanted to give some public kudos to marcella for this one. _I_ thought it was brilliant, and SO wish I could have been on that tour with her! Proud of you girl, good job!

A themed release down at the cricket ground.

Unfortunately rain stopped play - well postponed the whole game!

Profile Image
Not quite a perfect match then? :)
I'm so annoyed - it's been glorious weather all week when I've been stuck inside at work, and on my one day off it pelts it down with rain? Boo.

....to the shopping centre with a shopping related book released.

I've sent an email with attatchments.
We had to release to a shopping centre, so I released a shop themed book outside an appropriate shop - The Little COMIC SHOP of Horrors, outside a comic book and collectables shop, complete with a flower entwined around it as reference to the original. No catch yet I'm afraid.

With various modes of transportation available, the Wolf team decided to go green and use a short hire Dublinbike to get about.

A copy of "Don't Stop Me Now" by Jeremy Clarkson was left in the basket. He prefers cars with large engines, but he'll just have to put up with pedal power!!

For our tree related release sing-on-a-star released The Savage Garden by Mark Mills: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/9897483

It was left in the woodland/Dell Garden at Heaton Park in Manchester where many people walk to feed the squirrels (and is also know for the fairies that live there!). It was left on a very funky looking tree stump or trunk.

Team Iron had to make a playground release this turn. We released ‘De eilander’ (The Islander) by Cynthia Rylant, www.bookcrossing.com/journal/7017718. They’ve just opened up a new natural playground in the park near my house. They’ve put in a raft-ferry which you can use to pull yourself across to the central island in the pond, which you could only get to if the water was frozen before. Every time I cycle past there now, I can hear children playing in the park, whereas it used to be an uninspiring flat grassy expanse with a couple of climbing frames which nobody ever used. My daughter’s teacher took the kids over there the other day instead of gym. They had lots of fun, except for the inevitable child who fell in the pond – his mother was not amused!

The JE (roughly translated) was this:

“Exploring in Cool Nature Park North in Wijchen. Step onto the ferry and travel to a mysterious island, in search of a fantastical book, ‘The Islander’. Enjoy the book. You can keep it as long as you want, but it is a special book, a travelling book. It would prefer to be read by lots of children, so when you’ve finished it, the book would really like you to give it somebody else or leave it somewhere for somebody else to find.

We released the book as part of an internet game of Monopoly. Team Iron will get a point if you journal that you’ve found the book, and also if you release the book again. So we would really like it if you write something on the Bookcrossing website.”
etc., etc.
