Bookplates

I received my bookplates today! It has a “where” section. Do I put the town I released it in or the free little library I’m releasing it in? I’m not sure how specific I need to be.

I use that to enter my home town - the place where I registered the book. (If I registered one while traveling and released it before I got home I *might* use that location instead, but in general I use the label fields to indicate where I live rather than where I released the book.)

When I make release notes for my books, I do try to be specific - in the text, if not in the release zone itself. I like to add photos if the release spot has anything photogenic about it. But I don't put that on the label - though you could jot a note beneath your bookplate if you wanted to...

How do I add a picture?


When you make release notes - or journal entries, for that matter - there's a link at the bottom of the box with "upload journal picture". (You can see the link in the JEs of the books you've already registered.) To upload a photo, click on that and follow the steps. If you don't have a camera this can be tricky {wry grin}, but if you do, you can take photos of your wild-released books and upload them to your computer, and then use the "upload journal picture" link to add it to your release notes.

Here's an example of a recent release of mine with a photo attached:
