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.

Mail order purchase: I think I first learned about this book from an article in the newspaper.

Iraq veteran Maximilian Uriarte's comic Terminal Lance has been published in the Marine Corps Times, so you know Uriarte must be getting it right.

The White Donkey follows Marine Lance Corporal Abe Belatzeko from training in Hawaii through his deployment to Iraq, and shows some of what happens to him afterwards. This heavy hardback edition is not the sort of thing you throw in your bag for reading on-the-go, but that's ok: the story deserves more attention than that anyway.

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

Please take a moment to make a journal entry and let this 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!)

BookCrossing: making the whole world a library!

this got here safely. Sorry for not journaling it earlier.

I wasnt sure what to expect from this book. I found the story heartbreaking as Abe strugles with being a Marine, what he expects of his tour of duty, what is expected of him during that tour of duty and the disconect he feels after returning to the US. This is a very personal and realistic story, and not one that I might have picked up if I saw it on the shelf at the bookstore. This is one thing I love about bookcrossing, the exposure to new and unexpected books.

This arrived a couple days ago, but the day it arrived we had no electricity, so I set the box aside and forgot to journal the books when the power came back. Sorry for the delay, and thank you for the books!

Journal Entry 8 by emmejo at Cortland, New York USA on Friday, December 28, 2018
I am moving most of the books from my TBR to the my available shelf because I am in the process of moving and trying to avoid moving books! If I have time, I still plan to read these, but I'm getting them ready to travel if that happens first.

I believe this is the correct stop, although the sign says Allegany River.

I left it on one of the seats in the center room.
