Team Tulip was busy this turn with three releases. We decided to do all three releases on one nature trail, and we tied them all in together.
The first one on the trail is Blue Diary for Collect the light blues. It is accompanied by a hand crafted card reading:
"Out of the blue...there is a book on your path. Don't be alarmed, this book is free, put here especially for you. Take it home, read it and let me know what you thought of it. You can do this - free and anonymously - by going to http://www.bookcrossing.com
and entering the BookCrossing ID from inside the book. May your journey today and always be prosperous."http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/11300424
The second book is Faceless Killers for in the middle. It is also accompanied by a hand crafted card reading:
"In the middle of nowhere a book is waiting for its next reader. Go ahead, pick it up and bring it with you wherever you are going. I hope you enjoy it. To see where this book has been, and to let me know where you found it, go to http://www.bookcrossing.com
and enter the BookCrossing ID from inside this book. It's free and anonymous. Thank you!"http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/8132497
The reason behind this book for in the middle is that the murder that is committed in the book is done in a little village in the middle of nowhere.
The last book on the trail is Such a Long Journey and is for passing go. The card that accompanied this book reads:
"It is not the destination, but the journey that counts. Whether you are at the start or at the end of your journey, a book will be a nice diversion. Why not pick this one up and give it a try? Let me know what you think. You can do that free and anonymously by going to http://www.bookcrossing.com
and entering the BookCrossing ID from the inside of this book. Enjoy!"http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/7636139
As we did not know what way the people would enter the trail, this book could either be at the beginning or at the end of people's walk on the trail. And such it is with passing go: we get to the end, but at the same time, it is again the beginning of another round on the board.
