I've got a book here just for you"....
(with apologies to Robert Palmer)
In about an hour, I am off to the oral urgeon to have some stitches taken out of my mouth (go ahead, it's okay to be jealous of me :-)) The last time I was there, I was reading a book my Bookcrossing pal dittybopper sent me about physics and baseball. My oral surgeon was intrigued by the book--he went to Yale, where the author teaches, and he is interested in physics--so, I promised to give it to him (hey, this one fits under the Keep Them Moving Challenge too!)
This got me thinking: Who hasn't been in a doctor's or dentists' office wishing there was something better to read? I oftten take magazines I am done with to them. But how about books? I let a few go on my last visit there, but why not make a release challenge out of this? We all will need a doctor, dentist, etc. sooner or later, and unless you like in an extremely remote location, there is likely one very nearby right in the town where you work, live or shop.
So! Here's the challenge, and I'll make it an ongoing one: leave any sort of book at any sort of medical office. It can be one you give directly to someone there, as I am going to do, or it can be a wild release. Pick any sort of book you think people there would like. (Normally, I'd like to be a good Mainer and stick up for Stephen King...but I'm not sure his horror novels would be the best thing to leave at the dentist). Post your releases here after you make them!
Let's help patients get well by giving 'em the BookCrossing treatment. :-)
