Journal Entry 1 by winglils74wing from Kathmandu, Bagmati Nepal on Tuesday, November 15, 2011

10 out of 10

I came upon this little book sometime--I think it was last year--in one of my favourite used & new bookshops here in Kathmandu. It was so unusual and random, I had to have it. And what original and unique stories. I am so impressed at how the author was so creative, all with one opening line. I thought it was a great idea for a short story collection.
For some reason I've had it in my mind since finishing this to send it to ApoloniaX, as I know she likes Asian literature. I'm not sure if that's only South Asian, or also Japanese, so let's see!

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Mailed this out to ApoloniaX today, with some other small things that I'd mean to mail out to you at Christmas--sorry for the delay, I'm terrible! :)
I hope you enjoy them nonetheless, and that they reach you soon and safely!

Thank you so much for this lovely little book and all the other goodies that came along! I had given you my work address - and it arrived right at lunch break, with some colleagues watching me unpack it. They were quite impressed :-)
And, yes, I do like literature from all over Asia.

I agree, great idea for a short story collection! I took the book with me on a long train ride where it kept me entertained. It will travel on right away :-)

This little book kept me happy for an hour or two with a nice cup of tea and now it is ready to travel on to a new OBCZ in the USA. It has been set up at a railway station and I think this book is ideal as it is sure to appeal to travellers. I hope it finds a nice new home!

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

I am really excited about this - it is the first (of hopefully many) books I am sending all the way from Germany to go on the shelf of the newly-founded OBCZ. I hope it someone whiles away an hour or two on an otherwise boring journey with this little book! It would be great if the finder checked out book crossing, maybe even became a member and joined our fun society...

The door is alway open to new members!

Thank you so much for the sweet book you sent for the zone! I loved the note and the extra surprise of the chocolate:) Such a pretty wrapper! And Yummy!
The zone is doing well - books fly off the shelf and occasionally even check back in:) Thanks for asking! This is a really unique zone as almost any type of book will get taken:) Which is really coo IMO!
To be released shortly.
