1. The Calico Book of Mother Goose, http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/13849181/

I can't believe that it has been almost 9 months since I released a book in a playground. One reason is that whenever I drive past a playground, there are people there and I like to release the books anonymously.

 

...I like to release the books anonymously.

Been very difficult with some of my most recent releases because the weather here in Arizona has been so unusually warm, that it is still very nice at night...so I've had to go a few times either early or midday. I haven't been feeling well, and when I would try to go late at night for a quick in and out of the car release when no one would be there, there were still families there with their children...even on school nights! One night I even went to get a couple of things at the store and went back a second time on my way home before I could get the job done! : D
