Well, actually, I've just started this, but it turns out that I have two copies. :)

So far, interesting & enjoyable.

Looks like this one is on a lot of wishlists, so I'm thinking about starting a bookring - even though I've never done one before.

One copy got wet, so I guess I'd better send the undamaged one traveling. The other is still convalescent.

And we're off! Mailed the book yesterday to NICNIC2.

Oh, and I added JennyC1230 at the end of the list.

Hmm. Would you expect a book about dead bodies to end with the words "Have fun!"? Tells you something about the book and the author right there... ;)

3 out of 10

First of all thanks for letting me hold onto this for a while longer. I got a few odd looks when reading this on holiday :)

I have to admit to being a bit disappointed in this book. Some parts were really interesting and some parts were quite funny but other times I felt it didn't move along fast enough and my attention was starting to wander. I'm glad I read it though.

Have PM'd for the next member's address and will send it on this week.

8 out of 10

I finished reading this yesterday and thought it was rather fascinating! I learned a lot of new things one can do with human bodies, also a lot of things I don't think I really wanted to know... :D Still, it was a very different read than the things I usually read and it was definitely a nice change. Thanks for the chance of reading this book!

I'll be pm-ing the next person on the list for their address.

ETA: Sent on May 26th, happy travels!

princess1984, could you please give us an update on the status of this book? There are quite a few readers on the list after you, so I'd like to keep this moving if at all possible...and even if you're not ready to pass it on it would be good to know how soon you think you might get there.

Thanks!

Edit 9/14/08: I'm going to try to keep this ring going with a replacement book. princess1984, if there are any used postage stamps in the pocket at the back of the book, would you be willing to at least send me those? I can send you my address or you can find it at the RABCK site. 


Journal Entry 12 by lostbookisland on Monday, September 29, 2008

This book has not been rated.

This book has washed ashore at the Lost Book Island after not being heard from for many months. This new arrival will be shown to a room and be allowed a bit of rest before being introduced to the many fun things to do here at the island.

All around there are books sipping cool drinks under shady palms while other books participate in a wide variety of beach sports. There is plenty of sand, surf and sun here for all of the lost and wayward books to enjoy.

It is hoped that very soon a new journal entry will come to rescue this book from the island and send it back out into the BookCrossing world so that it may continue on its journey. It is hoped that the new journal entry will tell all the interested parties where this book has been this long time and where it will be traveling to next.
