Towel Day is almost here! Carry your towel around and get weird looks... Great day for releasing Douglas Adams' books, "father" of our beloved ballycumber. I've saved up four of his books for this occasion. Anybody else?

In case you didn't know:
Douglas Adams & John Lloyd: The Deeper Meaning of Liff:
"Ballycumber (n.)
One of the six half-read books lying somewhere in your bed."

 

Just passed on the two books I had of his to Ecuas...he's reading one of them right now. Maybe he can do a belated release once he's done!

I normally do a pratchett tehmed release - it's the wearing of teh lilac too :) but haven;t been able to due to all the disruption in my house and no where to keep collected books, but I'm excited to see what other people do

 

Yes, I released "Terve, ja kiitos kaloista" (So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish) at the Pyynikki observation tower's cafeteria today. Releasing a book by Douglas Adams on Towel Day has become a tradition for me.

("Unbelievable! I was walking around at university meaning no harm, and what did I find? Just the part I haven't read. This must be fate.")

 

Ah Brilliant!

I ahven't seen a single other person with a towel today, despite spending teh whole day out and about, including about an hour in my favourite sci-fi bookshop... the londoners have let me down ...

Uh, I'm so happy. What a fluke!
I released only two books today, this one and http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/9876890/
I have a really good journal quota at university, let's see if the second one will be found, too.

 

Maybe I just didn't leave the house so I could stay in with all my towels & not panic. Really I forgot the day again, but I do know where my towel is!!

 

...but I've put the date on my calendar so I won't forget it next year!

Wow, I released only two books, but both have been found by AF. So my quota is 100% :)
