Ellis Peters. A mediaeval whodunnit. I like this spelling,mediaeval, it comes from medius aevus, "Middle Age".
This book is involved in the First Very Unofficial Bookcrossing Olympics.

Bookcrossing Olympics

Which event ? High Jump. This is the principle of "high jump": Reach for the sky - the book released at the highest point above sea level wins.
So this event will count as soon as you release the book, Conichi.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

The comment at the bottom of this window is in French, this is my usual default entry, that's not important :) Thank you for your cooperation (bis repetita). In French, we have an adjective, saugrenu to say that something sounds out of the box or silly, but this action is not saugrenue :) It's an Olympic event !



Bravo, vous avez emmené ce livre vers une nouvelle vie ! Si c'est une "première" pour vous, votre propre vie est également devenue un peu nouvelle, elle aussi...

Dites en bref ce que vous imaginez faire de ce livre.
Vous pouvez rester anonyme pour ça.

Si vous voulez faire comme moi, libérer des livres, vous devez les enregistrer ici sur www.bookcrossing.com. Là, il faut être inscrit, membre. C’est ouvert à tout le monde; pas mal, non ? Qu'est-ce qui est ouvert à tout le monde de nos jours ?

Faire voyager des livres, en libérer par ex. à un arrêt de bus, ou sur un banc, apprendre ce qu'ils deviennent, fait ressembler le bookcrossing à un jeu géant à effets multiples, rencontres d’autres bookcorsaires/bookcrossers, participation à des MBC (MegaBookCrossings, libérations massives de livres à plusieurs dans une ville choisie) découverte de livres, jeux, défis BC, etc.

Ne craignez ni pluie ni neige, on peut relâcher un livre emballé dans un sachet à zip pour aliments par ex. (prenez le modèle le plus grand).

Before i had to release to it so it counts on the BC olimpics y wanted to read it and i am glad i did it. It was fascinating. It accompained me to places like Pucarani (4000masl), Urmiri (hot springs), Potosi (4200masl) and Chuquisaca (capital of Bolivia).

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

This book can collect points if it is released at a high point above sea level. The title suggest it: cold. And where is ice and cold in Bolivia? In the mountains. The nearest and easiest to reach is the formar sky resort Chacaltaya, some 30 km from the city away and at about 5300 meter above sea level. Picture of the release follows. Cristian
