I went with the very first square and wild released a book today, something I don't really do a lot of, more so favoring controlled releases through sweeps and tag games.

I released at the Starbucks at grocery store Fred Meyer, and by the time I had done my shop and was leaving the store, the book was no longer there!
Double bonus was I had to add this location, so its a new spot.
Triple bonus was that it's the only recent release in Idaho according to the Go Hunting pages!!

...with a new member referral


I'm happy to have joined bookcrossing at the very beginning of this year!

On the first day of 2019, made a wild release, referred a friend and had my wild release caught (a Ukrainian law book ; I was so glad to see the note from the next reader! )

Also, handed a book to another book member recently ("A Year In The Merde" by Stephen Clarke )


He is new and this book will be the first BC book in his hands. Hope Latvijas pasts will be fast in delivery.

I was a winner of Movie Sweepstakes 9. Now all are welcome to take part in Movie Sweepstakes 10.


what can Random Act of BookCrossing Kindness??? are you sure??


I've made a good start on this:

Made a wild release yesterday for an SSM:
Had a wild release caught:
And I've joined the 52 Towns in 52 Weeks release challenge.



Granted a wish for another book crosser, but I didn't find the person through RABCK. Oh by the way I don't expect another book in return.

What box can I check off?

Ok, lets see.

A RABCK stands for "Random Act of BookCrossing Kindness".
This can take several forms, but the most common is when someone sends you a book without asking for a trade or postage reimbursement. It’s generally just the act of doing something nice for another BookCrosser.

So if you sent a book to another BookCrosser, and it wasn't a trade, or linked to a sweepstake or a game, then you can count it as the 2nd square in from the top row (left to right) "Grant a Wishlist RABCK".
You could also count it for the square "Mail a book to another BookCrosser" if you sent it by mail.
Hope this helps, and thanks for playing.


Following my visit to Milwaukee this past weekend where I met Twila, Ireland424, Librarygrrl and Aimlesst at the OBCZ Full of Beans Café.


Thanks for the nudge J4Shaw! I can indeed tick off Enter the Bookcrossing Day Contest!
I also bought myself wings the other day and updated my extended profile (now I've figured out how to embed the links!) Plus I mailed a book to another bookcrosser.

I think "Find a Wild Release" is going to elude me but I did find a Book Fairies wild release last weekend which was a lovely surprise, if not quite the thing for here!!!
