Charles Smithson is an amateur paleontologist living on the southwestern coast of England. Ernestina is his drearily upright fiancee. Sarah Woodruff is an enigmatic local governess, said to be pining for a French soldier who has misused her. The fourth major figure in this book is not a character but the author. By no means all-powerful, he discovers early on that he has lost control of his characters and proposes in that case to let them have their freedom.

I tried to get into it. Seems I am not in the mood so I will set it as available, but maybe I wil give it another try.

Released 7 yrs ago (11/26/2009 UTC) at Złote Tarasy in Warszawa, Mazowieckie Poland

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

This book has been set free in the huge shopping mall Złote Tarasy. You can find the exact location by using the map of the second floor given at http://www.zlotetarasy.pl/plan/2. The book is hidden in #228 on the map, in the home furnishing shop Almi Decor. When coming into this shop, you keep right. Go past the bedroom with a double bed, and on your the left side you´ll see a small wall with several clocks. Under these clocks is a ´dressoir´. We put the book in the right drawer...

Good luck tracking it down!

This is the second one of koekiebak's releases in the enormous shopping mall Zloty Tarasy. It was fun to search for it in a home decoration shop. There were a few walls with clocks and `dressoirs', so I was happy that koekiebak had included a photo in her journal entry.

I have never read this classic before, and it looks as if I might like it. I'll take it back home to the Netherlands. Koekiebak, thank you so much for organizing this fun book-quest!
(By the way, in this huge shopping center, I found many shops with clothing and shoes and almost as many cafés, but not even *one* bookshop!)

Added 29 November: Finally I decided to release the book here in Warsaw, hoping that someone from Warsaw will like the book and the idea of Bookcrossing.
 


Journal Entry 9 by wingvioloncellixwing at Plac Zbawiciela in Warszawa, Mazowieckie Poland on Sunday, November 29, 2009

Released 7 yrs ago (11/29/2009 UTC) at Plac Zbawiciela in Warszawa, Mazowieckie Poland

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

This book has been released in:

Creperie Bastylia, ul. Mokotowska 17, Warszawa, just around the corner from Plac Zbawiciela.

This book is a theme release, because Bastylia is truly a creperie in French style, with pictures of Paris on the walls and high-quality French crepes, both savory and sweet ones. (I liked the one with spinach and French cheese; and the one with honey and walnuts tastes great as well.)
I hope the French Lieutenant will also find something to his liking here, probably a crepe, because Bastylia's women visitors just might not return his interest; and his own Woman might run into dangerous temptation here.

See Bastylia's website http://www.bastylia.com.pl/index.php?poz=media&wart=5

Dear finder,
Welcome!
If you aren't familiar with Bookcrossing, take a few minutes to check out this very cool site. Bookcrossers LOVE books, and more than anything, they love to read books and then set them free for other people to find and enjoy. I would love it if you would leave a journal entry -- you can say where you found the book or how you liked it when you read it. This may be done anonymously and, of course, in the language of your preference, for example Polish or English.

Bardzo dzękuje! / Thank you very much!
Srdecznie pozdrawiam / Best wishes,
violoncellix (from The Netherlands)
