Certainly it counts. It's the main activity that BookCrossing centers around and it's a great thing to do. But it won't guarantee that someone buys you a pair of Wings. See, if someone does that, it's a gift and a surprise. You can't ask for a surprise, or it wouldn't be a surprise anymore!
but me too me too!!! I was so excited after initial puzzlement as to why there was any reference to members plus on little ole me's shelf... and then noticed the glorious wings! Thanks so much... would love to know how they sprouted so unbeknownst to me, but thank you whoever!
Thankyou, anonymous winger, I'm just having a quiet day with books .. bit of shelf sorting, bit of registering, pottering generally - then I notice my auto comment back on the registration page & suddenly I'm jumping up and down!! I even woke the cats up enough for one of them to open a bleary eye!!
I see the glitch that made the plus signs last for two months is fixed -- good, since May 25 is just about when I'll run out of labels (keeping fingers crossed that "Peace With Geese" will still be available then).
Thanks to whoever treated me to a PLUS membership!
Thanks to Ardik's BC Helper (thanks for that, too!) I was just notified I'm flying one more month. Thank you, whoever you are! I'm happy. :D (But, to be honest, I would be even happier if I knew *whom* I'm thanking here... You could always PM me if you feel a bit shy. ;))
off with clogs on. I read the thread about a glitch and realised that my wings hadn't only been extended for one month because I went to the Convention, but another month too. So I'll be floating on air for another two months. Thank you, whoever it was!

Thanks very, very much to the unknown good-deed-doer who gave me plusses today. I noticed they expire on Jan. 16, which is perfect -- I've planned a $35 supply store run but my credit card balance, like my TBR pile, is not allowed to go over a certain number so I must wait until ... Jan. 15! ... to place the order.
I just received a release alert. Having not too long ago been grumping about not receiving the daily summaries, I was most happy to begin receiving them again. But then the release alert in the middle of the day made me think, "Wow! They really fixed it good." But then, "Hang on just a minute, I'm not supposed to be receiving those!"
And then I saw those fabulous maple leaves beside my name! What a thrill! Thank you kind mystery winger!
today I was pleasantly surprised that I have wings around my username. I seriously have no idea who and why did this, especially that I'm new in BookCrossing, so wow.... it would be nice if the giver would 'confess', I'd love to send a thank you postcard :) [currently I'm broke so no books, sorry]
...having just found about this thread, I came to thank bookczuk for extending my wings - THANK YOU! That was very kind of you. :) - and I find out I've been mentioned, too. *blush*
But I must set the record straight... trojanpotato (gosh, I do love that nickname!)... I can't take credit for your two months of flying, I winged you for just one. So I guess you've still got one mystery benefactor! Cool! :D
I'm new to BookCrossing and am gradually finding out how some of the less obvious things work. So, when I discovered I had wings a few days ago, I had absolutely no idea where they came from and put it down to a bug in the system. I expected them to disappear again in a day or two.
Thus I was very happy to stumble onto this thread. It never clicked that I could have received wings as a gift. I still have no idea who the mystery donor is, but thank you! :o)
I've been away on holidays for a while now and only sporadically checked BC. Logged in today and had a peek at Manage My Profile to see if any new options had appeared while I was away, and while there I noticed my wings now expire at the end of May. I could swear the last time I checked it was the end of April. Sooooo...
A big "THANK YOU!" to whoever it was that winged me! It's greatly appreciated. :)))
I just noticed today that May 31 has been and gone, but no adds have appeared on my BC pages! I still have wings! Well, cats actually. *grin* Hurrah! Thank you, my mystery giver, for extending them for me! :D
I'd love to thank you personally, but I'll understand if you prefer to stay anonymous. I know I have a lot of fun winging others that way. :D
"The truth is that even big collections of ordinary books distort space, as can readily be proved by anyone who has been around a really old-fashioned secondhand bookshop, one that looks as though they were designed by M. Escher on a bad day and has more
stairways than storeys and those rows of shelves which end in little doors that are surely too small for a full-sized human to enter. The relevant equation is: Knowledge = power = energy = matter = mass; a good bookshop is just a genteel Black Hole that knows
how to read. "
