a catch

I picked up a book today and left it at the Folk Museum. I planned to do a release note now, but it was already catched!

We can always hope! I became a BX'er, after finding a book at a hardware store. 'Told my Mom about it, and she joined. 'Told my sweetheart about it, and he joined up too!

I guess this was released at the release walk.

I actually released this one on my way to the history museum after the walk instead of in the sculpture park, so that it wouldn't end up in the bin. The finder has joined, and sounds enthusiastic! http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14301067

"One of the books I collected at Vigeland Park after the release walk on 23 April 2017. Somebody told us that we were not allowed to release books inside the park and that our books will be thrown away. " ( http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14343595 )

Thankfully it was moved though!

Wonder why wild releases of books wasn't allowed in the Vigeland park??

I hope that most of the books were rescued before they ended up in the bin!

I certainly didn't expect the security to throw away the books! And I wouldn't have left any books there if I knew!

I had a couple of quick catches. Plus, I never saw a single security person but was pleased to see our books disappeared quickly. Fingers crossed.

It was one of the books I posted about above. I wonder why they never did another journal entry, or maybe it has still to come. If they don't do one, how can I add a note to say where it is travelling. Do I just edit my release note?

I released at the convention, then the book was re-released in Bergen, where a U.S. Navy sailor picked it up and brought it all the way back to his mom back in the U.S.

The little book has crossed the Atlantic twice! And who knows if it has travelled more in between.
