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.

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!

Journal Entry 3 by wingGoryDetailswing at Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Tuesday, February 20, 2018
The package of books arrived safely; many thanks! I love to use these little Penguin 60s as geocache releases! This one includes the title story as well as "The Reeve" and "The Miller", so perhaps it should be called "bawdiest hits" {wry grin}.

[The TV Tropes page on the book is quite entertaining.]

Released 2 yrs ago (3/6/2018 UTC) at New Hampshire geocache (see notes for details) in -- Geocaches, New Hampshire USA


I left this little book in the Fireman's Bend Geocache in Mason, NH, while visiting nearby Parker's Maple Barn for some freshly-made maple syrup. Hope someone enjoys the book!

A quick read at one of the first location I first heard about bookcrossing. I was going to try to put back in a cache but, the ones in this location are to small. If you find this book please, also look of geocaching.com for more fun! The area where you found this book is a great place to start geocaching as well.
