"Stacks of books were piled high all over the house-not just arranged in neat rows on bookshelves, the way other people kept them, oh no! The books in Mo and Meggie's house were stacked under tables, on chairs, in the corners of the rooms. There were books in the kitchen and books in the lavatory. Books on the TV set and in the closet, small piles of books, tall piles of books, books thick and thin, books old and new. They welcomed Meggie down to breakfast with invitingly opened pages: they kept boredom at bay when the weather was bad. And sometimes you fell over them." --From Inkheart, by Cornelia Funke
wrote this ditty for me. He's so sweet.
There once was a lady that lived on a hill.
She had so many books and one day they did spill.
The cats they sprang left and others sprung right.
When guests came by it was an awful sight.
Barely anywhere to stand, the spacing was tight.
Oh she was upset, but she knew what to do.
Get a bigger house, one that is blue.
More space for books, warehouse size.
A few more cats too, oh what a prize.
At the end of the day to herself she was true.
Every book crossed with a BCID that was new.
Please know that the books that have been wild released have truly been released in the wild. I do not make release notes for a book if it is going to a known person.
I was on release 41 before I had my first actual catch, and as of now I have only had 58 wild catches, but I know that my books have found homes, and that is what matters.
"Many thanks for the concept making it possible for this little book to fall into the hands of people from all walks of life, to be reminded of the power of acting kindly towards those all around us." AF 9 September, 2004
