Love the JE. "the idea of a BOOK traveling."
Profile Image
Yes, I felt the same way when I found the book that introduced me to BC. I am not a romance reader, and I found a Danielle Steel novel. I had no interest in the book whatsoever, but the idea, on the other hand... :)

Obadiah Comes Fourteen ( https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14813407/ ), a book set in my area in pre-Revolutionary times, released at a local burying ground from the same era - the burying ground was even referenced in the book!

I think this would count as a themed release... Tonight I bookcrossed a book from the Choose-Your-Own-Adventure series called The Third Planet From Altair. I left it in a book exchange area at a games cafe called The Adventurers Guild. I thought it was fitting as the book itself is a sort of game, and the name of the establishment fits with the Choose-Your-Own-Adventure series.

There are several books in the photo, but mine is the one that is a little out of place-- propped on the ledge at the right side of the fireplace rather than on the mantle used as a bookshelf or in one of the piles on the hearth.

Well done. So many dog books. I hope they enjoy them :)

I like my releases to have a theme, I do it that way whenever possible, but I didn't count my last one as it's only themed in a personal way (I left "Tales from the Secret Annex" in a LFL across from the backstage entrance to the theatre where I played Anne Frank... but our Secret Annex has been gone from that theatre for a few years and only exists in our memories and photos now). I did another one today that I think will count for this, as the theme is more concrete/apparent.

Today, in the middle of the 2018 Winter Olympics, I left "Ice Hockey and Curling (Winter Olympic Sports)" at a Curling Club in a nearby town (my grandpa's old club). The book is geared to kids, but it's Family Day here and there were a lot of kids at the club trying out the sport, so I'm hoping one of them will take the book home :) To make the release even more apropos, they were showing Olympic hockey on the TV in the curling club lounge, lol :)
