World Diabetes Day BookCrossing Release Challenge 2014

November 14 each year is World Diabetes Day.

Join in and help raise awareness of this chronic disease for which there is currently no cure by releasing a book for this challenge between 7-14 November.

Books - any topic, any language - mentioning the International Diabetes Federation which will also take you to the World Diabetes Day (www.worlddiabetesday.org) website:

http://www.idf.org/

As the symbol is a blue circle, even books with a blue cover, or 'blue' in the title appreciated.

Ideally, would like releases listed here, please, rather than begin a new thread.

Happy to answer any questions, and if you send me a message with a postal address, I am prepared to post you a few of the special World Diabetes Day bookplates.

Go for it ! JennyG

I just have to get it read in time. :)

I'm in

Talk about serendipity , or good timing. I am getting back into bookcrossing after a bit of a bad period, so headed to the challenges for some extra motivation. This is very appropriate as I ahve just been diagnosed with diabetes. I will definitely release something for this challenge.

Thanks for organising it.

And, oops, I see I got so far behind that I never did get around to listing my releases here before I gave up and started posting again as of January 1st.

Are you sure you want to delete this item? It cannot be undone.
