Hello, I'm rodespringbal, a Belgian Bookcrosser. And I need some help. My cousin is a Master in Italian and Latin Communication and is doing a course in Italy right now. She pays for this study herself without scholarship. I want to realise a little surprise/quest for her. Because she doesn't have always internet or tv. And because she wants to practice her Italian more, I was thinking...
Who wants to send her an (Italian) bookcrossingbook that she can read and release afterwards? If you want to help me, but don't have an Italian book, an English book is good as well.
If you are interested in helping me, please pm me your address. I will send you an envelop with a puzzlepiece in it and also her address so you could send the book with the puzzlepiece to her. There are 6 puzzlepiece, I'm gonna send 1 of them. So I need at least 5 volunteers who want to send a book to my cousin.
I want to thank you in advance for helping me to set up this surprise. Oh, she likes fantasy and romance-books but other books are fine as well!
Should we just tell each other what we're planning on sending, so there will be no duplicates? (I know, chances are slim, but...) I was thinking "From Notting Hill with Love, Actually" http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/11816581 -- sound okay?
I'm tempted to join but I will not, because if I do, there will be little space for somebody who can offer an Italian book. I have checked and there seem to be no books in the Italian language roaming about this house. Except about 4 Italian/English dictionairies!
However: If you need someone for the game to happen, contact me, I can only join with an English book.
.....*drumroll* And today, I received a journal entry. :) Google translate helped me to figure out the Italian, and it was to say that she hadn't found the time to read yet (understandably!!) but was trying her best. :D Thanks for the lovely idea, rodespringbal, this JE really made me smile. :)
