corner corner OBCZ in the News as a Local Mystery
May 11, 2010

Seems that a regular release zone and OBCZ, tended to by tuesdayal in Avalon Beach, NSW Australia, piqued the curiosity of someone at The Manly Daily. A photograph of the zone, books cleverly cached in the rocks accompanied the following text:

MYSTERY surrounds the appearance of several books in a niche in the rock face at the southern end of Avalon Beach.

Last week the books were piled neatly in a nearby cave but now they’ve been moved to a made-to-measure niche and caught the attention of regular walkers and swimmers.

And these books are definitely not airport fiction, with titles such as Carolan’s Concerto by Caiseal Mor, The Wit of Rugby by L.H.W.Paine and Lenin by David Shub.


Newspaper readers were invited to help solve the mystery online. No mystery to us. BookCrossing books are intrepid, interesting and mysterious travellers!
