Hi BOOKWORM
Found some appropriate books while reorganizing my bookshelves so I'm in!

 

Found some appropriate books while reorganizing my bookshelves so I'm in!

HELLO, spazcat...happy to "see" you and have you join in!!! : ) Our 2018 Challenge Participant List has begun with YOU!!! : D I have a few in storage that I wasn't able to release for last year's challenge, that I HOPE to be able to release this year. ; )

 

I thought I didn't have anything appropriate but it turns out I do.
However, quite a few of them are on my Mt TBR, so I better get reading!

 

 

...but they can be Mom's, too! (I only have one, but whaddya think BOOKWORM?

 

they can be Mom's, too!

HAHAHAHAHA!!! : D True statement, oh...BOOKCROSSING MISTRESS, spazcat!!! : D Contrary to popular belief...fortunately, there are more positive definitions of that word than the one that most often is the first to come to many people's minds, and it's usually the more obvious because it's something that's been prevalent in society for more years than I have been alive, even at my ripe old age. : D YES, let's add MISTRESS...in all of its forms...to the list. Not certain if the cut and paste definition from GOOGLE will work here, but its all I have time for right now. ; ) HAPPY BOOKCROSSING DAY, ALL!!! : D

Really uplifting for me, as the birthdays of my Mother (she would have been 97 yesterday 5/5), and several "Mother" Friends to me (Mary also yesterday), as well as a Friend or two, and a Sister-in-Law, would all be celebrated with them this month, if they weren't already all smiling down on us from Heaven, along with others there. ; ) LOVE the book titles, the multiple and themed challenge releases, the photos, and all of your creativity...and I've added those participants who were not already listed. ; )

http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/15042278/ Southern Comfort

Oh my...so sorry, Spazcat. Someone must have needed the warmth it provided on a cold night, or the fuel it provided to cook a meal, or...being a "Romance"...is carrying quite a grudge. ; ) When I next have a chance to get to the Friends of the Library again...I'll see if I can find a copy so it can be replaced. : ) I think there's a way to list it in a BC Graveyard as retired, but I can remember how at the moment.

 

but I can remember how at the moment.

Here you go, Spazcat!!! ; ) http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/TheDeathOfBooks
You can do a Controlled Release, then PM TheDeathOfBooks so the Status gets set. You could also assign the BCID to a different book to recycle it. While you're deciding, I'll still try to see if there's a copy available to replace it. ; )

 

Thanks BOOKWORM---I'll try the graveyard. It was probably a bunch of kids at a graduation party, but it broke my heart to see a book torn in half and burned. :(

 

That is so rotten! It always amazes me that some people seek to do good while others do just the opposite. So sorry this happened.

I would not recycle the BCID for that book. That book deserves its own BCID...even though it met an untimely end. :/

Thank you SqueakyChu. I just sent it to TheDeathofBooks. Retired too young.
