Journal Entry 1 by JessicaEby from Cambridge, Ontario Canada on Saturday, January 27, 2018
My husband and I found this book in September 2017. It was on a table of free stuff along a back road somewhere between Eugenia and Wasaga Beach.

We participated in the Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope on Sunday 10 September, and afterwards we decided to go see/walk along the longest freshwater beach in the world, because I'd never been there before. We were driving down a gravel road somewhere between the two towns when my husband saw a table of stuff out at the end of a long, country driveway with a "Free" sign on it. He noticed that there were some books on the table so he stopped, and we left with a few children's chapter books to be bookcrossed.
For 2017, I had dedicated my bookcrossing activity to reading and sharing Canadian stories, so I have not registered these books until now.

There is nothing I have seen in/on this book to give any clues about its past before I found it, but it seems like it's in good condition. I am eager to see what its future holds.

Journal Entry 2 by JessicaEby at Cambridge, Ontario Canada on Tuesday, February 19, 2019
I gave this book a quick read this afternoon. It's a fun, silly little story for fairly young kids (5-8) about Amelia Bedelia babysitting.

I decided to read it today because over the weekend my first nephew was born, and my husband and I expect to be going to London later in the week to meet him. We will have to go straight from work so we will probably stop somewhere in London to eat something after leaving my sister-in-law's house and I thought that, if we do, it could be a good time to release this book.

I can't wait to babysit my little nephew sometime! I have a bit more experience with babies than Amelia Bedelia does, so hopefully we'll be able to avoid some of her mishaps! But I agree with her final declaration about babies, and I hope that little Spencer and I will get along as well as Amelia and Missy :)

Journal Entry 3 by JessicaEby at Burger King, Wellington location in London, Ontario Canada on Friday, February 22, 2019

Released 1 mo ago (2/22/2019 UTC) at Burger King, Wellington location in London, Ontario Canada


We ended up staying later than expected at my sister-in-law's, and her cats bothered my husband's allergies more than expected too, so we're staying in London tonight! We managed to make it to a Burger King just in time to grab some food for our weekly date night ("BK Thursday"), but not to eat in the restaurant, unfortunately. We're having a hotel room BK Thursday tonight, but I managed to leave this book behind while we were in getting our food. I left it in a baby seat that was tucked under the counter where you get ketchup, straws, and serviettes.

If you've found this book, thanks for picking it up and checking out its journal! If you're new to bookcrossing, welcome. We'd love it if you'd stick around with us a while. I really hope that you enjoy both this book and the whole bookcrossing experience!

This book was released in celebration of my nephew's birth/our first meeting, but it was released as part of a couple of Release Challenges here on BookCrossing as well. It was released as part of the 2019 "52 Towns in 52 Weeks" Release Challenge, in which London was Town #6 for me. It was also released as part of the "Becky's Hugs" Release Challenge organised by BookCrosser ResQGeek, in which we release Children's and/or Teen's books in memory of ResQGeek's daughter, Becky (known as N-R-Jyzer here on BC), who passed away several years ago as the result of an accident suffered while riding her bike.
