Journal Entry 1 by wing6of8wing from Silver Spring, Maryland USA on Tuesday, November 22, 2011

8 out of 10

I made my second trip to The Book Thing of Baltimore recently and this one of the books I brought back. I was looking for a book with "Go" in the title for the Book Crossing Monopoly game (Team Top Hat gets to make another release for passing go). This looked perfect. When I got home I saw that it was by Tom Bodett (whom I know mostly from the Motel 6 radio commercials -- "we'll leave the light on for ya") and I have always enjoyed listening to him. It was a short book and a quick read -- a lot of fun -- selections of pieces he did on All Things Considered on NPR regarding his life in Homer, Alaska, which is literally the end of the road.

Now I will look for the perfect release spot. 

Journal Entry 2 by wing6of8wing at Chinatown in -- Wild released somewhere in the District, District of Columbia USA on Wednesday, November 23, 2011

Given the title of this book, it would be an ideal release for an airport, just prior to passport control, or a national border. Besides the fact that I am not able to journey that far to make such a release at the moment, there is the concern about causing a security issue. So I chose the best place I could think of -- the ornamental gate in China Town, Washington DC -- which is not far from my office. Hopefully it has not caused any security problems there; it was gone when I came back past the gate.

This is the release for Team Top Hat in the Book Crossing Monopoly game, Turn 15, Release for Passing Go.
