This Is My Town bookcrossing journal;

What is interesting about where you live? Great night life? The best restaurants? Sunny, sandy beaches? Tell me about it!!
The idea of this journal is to travel thru each of the 50 United States, finding great places to visit, great people to tell me about it, and great fun in reading it!! Please feel free to include anything and everything you find intriguing about your corner of the world; postcards, pictures, labels, buttons....have fun with it! Maybe someday, I can have the opportunity to see each and every stop for myself!!

The Rules:
- please try to limit your enthusiasm to 6 pages (we want room for everyone!) I'm making this a 2-volume journal, so that everyone gets plenty of room!
- please try to keep this journal moving along (7-10 days per stop would be ideal!)
- Journal upon receiving and again when you post, so that we all may keep track of its travels. (**Please DO NOT release this journal)
- PM the person next on the list for his/her addy once you have the journal in hand. If after 2 attempts, you cannot contact them, please PM me & the next recipient on the list.
- HAVE FUN!!!!!!!!!!!

Journal Entry 2 by Maurean from Atlantic Beach, Florida USA on Monday, March 01, 2004
Well....after some delays due to this thing we call *life* I have finally gotten this journal on its way! I very much look forward to reading everyone's input, and I hope these little books make there way safe and sound throughout the U.S. Thanks to all who are participating!! HAVE FUN!

Mailed to North Carolina today, 3/1

Journal Entry 3 by TBlack44 from Wake Forest, North Carolina USA on Sunday, March 14, 2004
I received this journal the middle of last week. Unfortantely, there was a death in the family that caused my delay in journaling this and starting with my part! I will mail this along as soon as I am finished with it! =)

Journal Entry 4 by TBlack44 from Wake Forest, North Carolina USA on Monday, March 22, 2004
This book is off to kristamd tomorrow morning. Due to personal reasons, I have not had the time to start my part of this journal. My sincere apologies to Maurean, as I've held this up too long. Though, I would love to receive this journal at the end before it gets to you so I can do my part. I would be gracious if you let me do this.

Journal Entry 5 by Mountainwren from Bethesda, Maryland USA on Tuesday, March 30, 2004
The journals arrived today I enjoyed Maurean's fabulous description of her hometown. I think jumping on a plane and visiting Atlantic Beach would be the perfect cure for my spring fever! I will finish my section of the journal during my upcoming spring break and mail it off to MarciNYC. I would love to see the journals once they are complete, too.

Journal Entry 6 by Mountainwren from Bethesda, Maryland USA on Monday, April 05, 2004
I completed my Washington DC pages and mailed the journals to MarciNYC today. I had fun re-visiting some favorite places and deciding which of the many local attractions to include. I'm excited to see the journals in their finished form.

Sending to Aisling78

Journal Entry 9 by Aisling78 from Essex, Massachusetts USA on Tuesday, June 08, 2004
I just recieved this journal in the mail today, and I'm impressed by the thought & work already put into it. I hope my contribution is up to par with what all the previousl bookcrossers have done. I'm hoping to have it on it's way w/in two weeks.

Journal Entry 10 by Aisling78 from Essex, Massachusetts USA on Wednesday, June 30, 2004
I've had this journal in my possession for the past several weeks and have not been able to add anything to it, due to starting a second job the same week this arrived in the mail. Maurean is letting me have a second shot at it later in it's travels, but for now I don't feel right holding onto it any longer when I can't guarantee that I'd be able to do anything with it over the next few weeks, either. I loved everyone's contributions so far, and hope that mine will be just as interesting. Thank you, Maurean, for your understanding. Lorelei03, I'll be mailing these books out to you Friday morning.

Journal Entry 11 by Lorelei03 from Flushing, New York USA on Tuesday, July 27, 2004
Yayy! These book have arrived and I'm so excited - both to start my entry and to read what the other BCers have done so far. I will definately want to put some thought into this, so more later!

Wow! That was quite an experience - it definately helped me learn more about my (new) town, and it was so much fun to see what the other BCers did with their entries (sand!). What a great idea -thanks!

Sent this on some time ago...? Perhaps in October?

Journal Entry 12 by Maurean from Atlantic Beach, Florida USA on Friday, December 31, 2004 much as I hate to admit defeat, it seems these journals have been sacrificed to the postal monsters that haunt our bookcrossing endeavors... thank you all for your participation (or, your anticipated participation!) and should anyone find these journals, perhaps they will be so kind as to continue them on their way...until then, Happy Bookcrossing!

Updated: 3/28/05 Yeah! I just rec'd word from PA that these journals are once again continuing on their originally planned journey! I hope they make their way to each and everyone of you, and I look forward to seeing them again, myself!
Happy journaling!!!

What great books! The journals themselves are really nice & the entries so far have been fantastic!

Journal Entry 14 by arcadedweller from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania USA on Saturday, May 28, 2005
These books are on their way to WritinReader. Sorry that it took me so long to finish my entry--I've been very busy planning my wedding. Wheee!! Just 1 more week left! :)

Journal Entry 15 by rem_NFI-175395 on Monday, June 20, 2005
It has arrived safely. I'll add to it and get it moving along. It looks really interesting!

Journal Entry 16 by rem_NFI-175395 on Friday, July 08, 2005
Getting ready to put this in the post to Book-girl-24. Great journal!

Journal Entry 17 by book-girl-24 from Knox, Indiana USA on Sunday, August 14, 2005
In the middle of finishing it, should be done by Saturday.

Journal Entry 18 by Maurean from Atlantic Beach, Florida USA on Tuesday, January 10, 2006
well, unfortunately, I have tried several times to contact book-girl-24 regarding the status of these journals, but have recieved no response; once again, it looks as tho they have lost their way.

Thank you all for your intended participation. It was fun while it lasted....
