First, a correction -- it seems that The Friendly Book was not given to my friend's nieces and nephews, so it was released today on the release walk I did with KateKintail down to Becky's tree.

Before that, though, are the two I released yesterday at the grocery store

Also, at the tree, I added a yarn-bomb tree scarf made by ApoloniaX, since it was a cold day. I took a photo, but darn if I can figure out how to link it to this on the new computer.


Such a special release you and KateKintail did, 6of8! : )


If your new computer has Windows10...which is a challenge in and of itself, at least for me...left click on the Windows symbol in the very left corner of the bottom bar and then scroll up about four items and click on "File Explorer", which brings up all the folders (much different from other Windows I was use to). If you have saved the picture, it should show in the "Recent Files" there, but on the one I am using, the pics (which save as .jpg files) go to "Downloads" and not "Pictures" or "Documents".

Once you find it so you know it's there ; ), you can go to one of your released book's Journal Entries and click on "upload journal image" in the lower righthand corner next to "edit". On the next screen that presents...click on "Choose File". That should bring up your saved images that you just looked at. Next, double click on the one you want, then click "Upload an Image" and voile...the image will be in your Journal Entry.

If you already have an image like the Becky's Hugs one that I have in each of mine for this Challenge (I used this same process)...you may have to click "remove image" at the bottom of that first screen that comes up after you click on "upload journal image" before you upload a new one.

Hope this helps and isn't too confusing. ; )


I spent the day filling Little Free Libraries in my area with books in memory of Becky. These 16 (and a few others) filled a children's-only LFL that is always in need of books--they even have a sign asking kids to limit their selections to two, and return the books when they're done, so other kids have the opportunity to read.

Thanks to everyone who helped celebrate Becky's birthday last month! My count (from the posts in this thread) is 379 books released in 15 States (and the District of Columbia). Awesome job! Hopefully we will continue to get catches from these releases over time.


For me...it was both an honor and a pleasure to have participated in this celebration of Becky's life. Thank you, ResQgeek. : )

Very nice!!


From the Journal Entries (so nice of those who have taken a moment to make an entry to do so...THANK YOU!!!), it looks like this one travelled from Youngtown, Arizona, on to Yuma, Arizona, where it was then placed in a Geocache just before Becky's Sweet 16 Birthday (released on 2/11/17, posted on 2/15/17) when we were all releasing for Becky's Sweet 16!!! ; D It was found there soon after during the month of February, and will now soon appear in a geocache in British Columbia or Alberta!!! : D http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/13841179
