Journal Entry 1 by winghyphen8wing from Honolulu, Hawaii USA on Monday, October 17, 2016
This is not an ordinary book: it's a BookCrossing book! BookCrossing books are world travelers - they like to have adventures and make new friends...and every once in a while they even write home to say what they've been doing.

This book is from the library of Purple58, a very special woman whom I was fortunate enough to meet through our BookCrossing group, the Table of Contents.

Fiercely independent, with a loving heart and a wicked sense of humor, she was passionate about the things she believed in and was willing to stand up and be counted when necessary. She was truly a one of a kind individual, and she will be missed by all of her many friends...who prefer to believe that she's off in Vegas, having a fabulous time and eating as many desserts as she wants.

She was a crappy Bookcrosser
But a wonderful human being

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

To be released Saturday, October 29, at the Happy Holly-Day party.

This book is released in memory of BookCrosser purple58, who wanted all of her books to find good homes after she was gone. Please feel free to read it, keep it, pass it on...whatever you wish. If you have something to say about the book, or a memory to share about Holly, please feel free to post it here: she was never shy about sharing her opinions, so she wouldn't expect any less.

I'm so glad you've found this book!

Please take a moment to make a journal entry and let the book's previous readers know that it's safe with you.

How and where did you find the book? What did you think of it? What are you going to do with it next?

It's now your book, for you to do with as you please: keep it, pass it to a friend, or maybe even leave it where someone else can find it!

If you've ever wondered where your books go after they leave your hands, join BookCrossing and you may find out: you'll be able to follow the further adventures of your books as new readers make journal entries - sometimes from surprisingly far-flung locations.

(Think of it like Where's George for books: a little like geocaching or a treasure hunt - you can follow a registered book's journey every time someone makes a new entry. Some BookCrossers even leave books *in* geocaches!)

This book came home from purple58's wonderful send-off with me. I think Holly would have loved her final party and I'm glad I was able to be a part of it. (The word cloud in the journal entry was generated from descriptions of Holly by her friends.)

This book will be heading out soon in honor of a special woman who was undoubtedly chuckling as she planned plotted out how she would have us celebrate her life. :)

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

Thursday, December 8, 2016: left on the yarn-bombed bike rack outside the Galiher Bldg on Ward. (Larger photo here - after following link, click on image to zoom.)

This story has been reinterpreted as a movie, a TV miniseries, and a multi-part radio drama, so I'll count this wild release for DragonGoddess's What's in a Name challenge, msrubble's 2016 movie challenge, Davros-10's 2016 TV Challenge, my 2016 Theater Challenge, and AlterEgoZoe's Leap into the Wild Challenge.
