My aunt (who owns the plae where my OBCZ is) asked me to take out the "rauncy romance novels" so I am and I'm going to release them on V-day.

Okay, I'm in

There are always tons of romance book at the library Buck-A-Bag table. I'll get some tomorrow and mark a route that will take me to lots of coffee shops on the 14th. I'll get some heart shaped post-its to make "I'm not lost...I'm FREE" stickies. I'll post the release links here :-)

Since I don't read romance novels and therefore don't have any of those to release on Valentine's day, I think I'll release ROMANTIC novels...smooch smooch!! I need to release more books from my shelves and floor!
I like the idea of heart-shaped post-it notes for this occasion!

Actually...

I was going to release a poetry book for Valentine's at a Greek Festival I'm going to this weekend. But I re-read the book and decided to hold off registering it and keep it a little longer! HAHA So I am going to release a romance novel or two there instead.

Count me in!

Great idea

I'm already looking through my shelves for romance related books to release.

Find a book on St. Valentine or the history of the holiday to release.

How about books on love, marriage, relationships. Things that apply to couples!

Don't forget the kids too!

I have a book of Greatest Love Poems (or something like that) that I've been saving for a Valentine's release.
Profile Image
This is going to be so much fun!
I'm going to a resort for the day with single friends - it is so hot over here!!! - so I'll take a pile to release everywhere.

Hope you all have mushy fun releasing!!!

True Love, by Robert Fulghum
Couplehood, by Paul Reiser

I'll see if I can finish one of my (few) romances by then.

This would be a good opportunity for me to release a few Harlequin Romances which are cluttering up the bookshelf. I rarely read then but seeem to end up collecting them from somewhere.
Profile Image
Even though I have already stated I would be in on this one in other forums, thought I would chime in the new forum.

Looking foward to it. I have books ready and labeld with special labels. Should be fun!

My grandmother donated a box and about four trash bags FULL of harliquin romances. As much as I love to read, those harliquins just don't do it for me, I can read them but Im quickly bored of them. So what I was going to do..starting monday, through next sunday, every day, I plan to release one book a day, romance genre, in places where you would go to get something for a loved one...IE-flower shop, outside a jewelry store, candy isle of walmart, etc. Then valentines day, all the popular restraunts, romance hot spots, i plan to release a couple books around those areas. I know when yer on a hot date when someone you love more than life yourself, you don't imagine being interested in books, but if one just happens to be sitting there, maybe you will pick it up. who knows. but thats just what i was planning on doing.

That even if we were on a hot date with Brad Pitt, we'd still stop and go "A BOOOK!" Snap it up, an proceed to explain BookCrossing to poor Brad.

Shen--Then ask him to act out several key scenes in the romance novel. *grin*

I think I have a couple romance books left, so I'm planning on a St. Valentine's release too :)

*PTHHHHHHHHH!!!! PR42 :)

I've got a number of romances I'm planning to release on or around the 14th too.

While snowboarding on Saturday, my friend the harvestqueen asked if we were going to "Do our Valentines Day tradition" and I asked what that was and she replied "Drink bloody Marys and release romance novels".

Oh yeah, now I remember!

Our library gives away old harlequins so I'll be scooping some up for the occasion.

On the French forum elj proposed some time ago a Valentines challenge: give a book from hand to hand to a stranger you fancy on the street (or in a cafe, or the library etc.) on the 14th. Sounds like a real challenge to me!
The thread in French is here: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/350806

I released a dozen romances and it was much harder than I thought to get them all done in the few short hours I have to myself today. They all have heart shaped post-its printed with "A Valentine Book For You!" All of them are well labeled, inside and out, with permanent stickers, too. I wasn't all that creative with where I was releasing them, though. Just wanted to get them out there and all fingers crossed that some will be caught. I bought most at a library Buck-a-Bag sale, 10 books for $1.00. Here they are, though no pictures. And speaking of pictures, some of the cover art on these books made me blush! And I am far from a prude.

ALl at the Roseville Galleria in Roseville Ca. 4 in Macy's, Irish Born in the Waterford display, (OK, so I was shopping in Macy's) One in Aveda (I was out of powder...) The GIft of Happiness was outside the GOdiva store and Season's of Glory in a planter box. :) The rest were scattered about willy-nilly.

My husband even came with me and as I was TRYING to sneak the first book into the Waterford display (hard to be sneaky on a President's Day weekend sale. THe place was PACKED) hubby loudly asks "BABE! What are you doing?"! This DESPITE knowing that the reason for the shopping excursion was to release the books. My sister whapped him and he got a PMS look from me. :) He clued in and said nothing else the rest of the day.

Now I'm tired and HOckey is on. Sharks at Columbus.

Congrats on all the great releases! I would post the ones that I released but no one has shown me how to attatch more then one link. How do I multi-link??

I just start my message. I open my bookshelf in a different browser window find book, copy link (Hilight, edit->copy) come back to window with message I'm writing hit edit->paste. go back to other window to get next link, repeat process till all links are entered into the message I'm writing. Hit post.

Shen- still with no V-day catches...

Just don't do like I did and copy your links from another forum :). They worked over in site watch, but not over here. LOL
