We are thrilled to advise that Melbourne is hosting the International Bookcrossing Convention in 2014 from Friday 11th to Sunday 13th April

Welcome to my bookshelf. I registered on this amazing site after seeing an article in the Weekend Australian Aug 2003.
I am the other half of leith, he is a slightly reluctant bookcrosser although generally supportive of MY bookcrossing activities.

Bookcrossing has helped me to combine two of my favourite activities - reading and travelling! I have released books in Thailand, Vietnam, New Zealand, Vanuatu, Singapore, France, Sweden, England, Italy, Spain, Chile, Argentina, Peru, Bolivia, Cuba, Croatia, USA, Malta, Ireland and Scotland and of course Australia as well .
I have been to International Bookcrossing Conventions in Christchurch, New Zealand, Washington DC and Dublin, Ireland. I missed the Amsterdam Convention when we got stuck in Edinburgh due to Volcanic Ash!

One of my favourite books has become my signature releasing book - a book I love to leave in exotic destinations. So far I have had success with these two copies-
Dr Seuss's "Oh the places you'll go" at Machu Picchu, 17 years after dreaming of going there one day! ..and another copy in April 2011 at Dr Seuss Sculpture Park in Springfield, Massachusetts - two catches and two new members!

Wild releases caught: 160 @28th February 2014.

This is my longest catch to date, just 3 months short of 8 years! -

Some of my favourite wild release catches :-
Round Ireland with a Fridge
One Woolly Wombat
Beach Road
Elmo Loves You - this one has had five different catchers
The Beach
Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea

In my first three years of bookcrossing I read my age each year - since then I have stopped counting - hoping that I will stop getting older!
