Paperback.

I thought of mississippimom when I saw this one, as she is always looking for Elvis-related books to release in the area around Graceland. I think I may read this one first, but designate it as reserved to go to her for release afterwards.

Journal Entry 2 by wingsolittletimewing from Portland, Maine USA on Wednesday, March 10, 2004
I decided not to read this one. It was finally mailed today via media mail as a RABCK.

Journal Entry 3 by mississippimom from Olive Branch, Mississippi USA on Tuesday, March 16, 2004

Journal Entry 7 by mississippimom at Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee USA on Saturday, August 14, 2004
Released on Saturday, August 14, 2004 at Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee USA.

I left this book on a bench outside the 'Bijou' theater where they are showing "Walk a Mile in My Shoes".... I wonder if these two Elvis fans ever even noticed this book?!?!? I'm sorry I didn't have time to stay and watch... too little time and too many Elvis books to release (I was in seventh heaven :)


Journal Entry 8 by wingAnonymousFinderwing on Thursday, April 21, 2005
Found this book at Graceland Plaza but no I wasn't the person in the photo. Took me ages to get into (about 6 months) but have set it free in Alice Springs Australia. I noticed a gentleman pick it up...hope he enjoys it and keeps it travelling.
