Journal Entry 3 by Merolia at Halandri, Attica Greece on Saturday, February 23, 2013
Such a lovely little book. It will look so great in the end, with everyone leaving their mark!

I love puzzles but I was unfamiliar with many categories, especially those concerning the USA. So I jumped to pages 28-29 that suited me better. I hope that's ok!

I'll send it to the next participant as soon as I find time to go to the post office.

Journal Entry 4 by Dove-i-Libri at Fort Myers, Florida USA on Tuesday, February 26, 2013
Dear Merolia, Since you were the first participant,

when the book ring has returned home,

I will send the postcards and letters for you to see!

Journal Entry 5 by Merolia at Halandri, Attica Greece on Wednesday, February 27, 2013
The puzzle book is on its way to the UK! It left today, packed with stamps.

Thank you so much Dove-i-libri. I would indeed love to see all the letters. I saw the new entry after I had closed the envelope, though. I have kept one postcard from Florida and added two of my own. Perhaps every participant could do the same.

Safe travels!

Journal Entry 6 by HerbertLooby at Cardiff, Wales United Kingdom on Sunday, March 03, 2013
Thanks so much for sending and I shall enjoy doing this (and the puzzles don't look as hard as I feared). I am about to have some minor surgery and can spend some of my recovery time doing this and writing a nice little note x

Arrived today and as I am sort of convalescing it was just great to receive, because it was as if bunch of lovely friends had descended upon the end of my bed: some lovely personal messages and cards from different parts of the world, very special!
The puzzlebook is great, 'different' in its kind, very nice of you to share it dove-i-libri!
I can see merolia's point, I also have to choose which puzzles I can do! But there are some Americans later on in the sending-order, who will know all the missing details.
I can't wait, so, better go on now.

Journal Entry 12 by Dove-i-Libri at Fort Myers, Florida USA on Tuesday, April 09, 2013

I've had the book for a couple of days but got side-tracked. Already did the puzzles. Now I still have to write my letter and then this can go off to the next person in line.

What a fun little book this is! I loved doing my 2 puzzles.

Apparently it was much harder to write the note about myself than to do the puzzles! It took me a whole 2 weeks. :-) The book is on its way to Canada now.

Journal Entry 17 by Kally93 at Brantford, Ontario Canada on Thursday, July 04, 2013
Oh my! I'm all set to send this on again only to discover I hadn't even journaled to say that I received it. :(

Anyway, this little puzzle book was great fun and very addictive. I had to hold myself back from doing more than three. Looks like it will be crossing the North American continent to California next.

Received in the mail yesterday from judygreeneyes. Glad it was marked "bookring." I am loving reading all the fascinating cards and letters from the various bookcrossers who have been ahead of me. This may be the best ring ever since it is both fun and entertaining with all the notes. Will do a couple of puzzles, write a bit about myself, and include a postcard or two. I do hope you get it all back intact, Dove-i-libri; I know how frustrating that can be.

By the way, it was great fun! :)

Thanks judygreeneyes for sending it to me; thanks Dove-i-libri for allowing me to participate, and thanks to everyone else who included postcards and notes about themselves. I feel like I know some of my fellow BCers better.

Journal Entry 23 by wingBkind2bookswing at Clarksville, Tennessee USA on Saturday, September 14, 2013
Wow! This little book has traveled well. I came back from my vacation in Montana to find this waiting for me. It is loads of fun and I too had to resist doing more than 2 puzzles - I could see myself starting this and not stopping. I too included a notecard with a local scene as well as 2 postcards. It is nice reading all the other notes - I may not ever get to Wales or Greece but it is nice looking at the cards and reading the thoughts of my bookcrossing friends from these and other places around the world.

I should be able to get this posted next week as soon as I get the next address. (After reading elizardbreath's page, it may be a week or two until I get this going as she is traveling until later this month.)

Thanks so much to Dove-i-libri for a wonderful ring!

I read a few cards and letters already and do two puzzles together with my daugther. So much fun! May I try a third one?
During our short holidays last week we do some more.

It's made it back to Florida!

This arrived today, & I've already done one puzzle. I also found a hitchhiker on board - Thank you, chawoso, for the card, stamps, & bookmark! Loved all the flowers!

I was just looking at postcards a few days ago -- should have bought some!

I'll try to be prompt about moving this along. Thanks for including me! =D

I am so glad this got to you! I was worried it might not make it. Take as much time as you want, read through everything. The letters, cards and pictures were so very interesting and sweet. Have fun! I'm glad your BookCrossing experiences have been positive. You were such a 'new-bie' when all of this started!

This landed with me a few days ago. After reading all the notes and looking through the puzzle book plus all the othe 'stuff' I do I don't feeol in the mood to do another puzzle so to avoid my forgetting to pass this little gem on I have looked up grovalski's details on rabck.com :)

It's back with all the colorful postcards and notes about fellow BCers. I feel like I know everyone better now. It is amazing how everyone ended up here (and through similar paths and similar experiences regarding books). What a wonderful group of people and I am thrilled to have gotten to know you all a bit better. Will complete a puzzle or two and send on. (By the way, discovered the answers were in the back...who knew?) Thanks Dove-i-libri for this wonderful opportunity to have some puzzle fun and more importantly, meet everyone through your word and photos, and to grovalskii for sending it to me.

Loved reading the cards and notes from everyone! This was so much fun. In one of those coincidences that could not be planned, I got this just 2 days after returning from a wonderful vacation to Crater Lake National Park in Oregon and Mt Rainier NP in Washington - just as we had just returned from Glacier NP when I first did this in 2013. It was wonderful to read about Greece and Germany, Wales and San Diego, Canada and Ohio...there's so much wonder in the world and what unites us is more vast than what separates us. Thanks to everyone for the glimpse into your corner of the world.

Sending back home next week.
