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.

4-for-a-dollar purchase from Book-Off at Ward. (Larger photo here.)

Looks like this is book 2, so I may need to look for book 1...

Journal Entry 2 by winghyphen8wing at Honolulu, Hawaii USA on Sunday, November 12, 2017
Borrowed book 1 from the library so I could read it first: the story of one of the boys from the orphanage is based on the experiences of the author's father!

Glad I read the first book because this one picks up right where Gib Rides Home left off...but there's enough explanation that I think I would have understood what was going on even if I hadn't just read book 1.

I enjoyed this book (and its predecessor) even though I'm not as fond of horses as Gib is: it was nice to see him finding his place in the world and beginning to build a future for himself.

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!)
