Thank you very much for sending this. I am probably not going to read it myself, but my dad and my husband will both enjoy the book tremendously. So kind of you to send it to Virginia!

This book was read by my father. He said it was hard to get into at first but after a while it became a very interesting read. He has been to the Bedford Memorial so it was very appropriate for him to read the book.

Since this book is about a county in Virginia I thought it's destiny was for it to be enjoyed by Virginia residents. I am not close enough to Bedford County to release the book there. So I am going to start a bookray for the book to keep it within the state. If you are a Virginia resident and would like to join let me know! I hope to get this book to the Bedford Memorial by way of several other bookcrossers first!

The Virginia bookray members are as follows:

skcreader (Roanoke, Virginia)
bunzrun (Wirtz, Virginia)
summermarie (Covington, Virginia)

Living in the next county over from Bedford, I am very interested in reading this book. Thank you for finding this book and letting it travel through Virginia on its way to the Bedford War Memorial.
