Journal Entry 1 by JessicaEby from Cambridge, Ontario Canada on Tuesday, July 31, 2018
Today I found a small stack of books that I packed away at the end of 2016, and this book was among them. In 2017, I focused my reading and bookcrossing activity on Canadian literature, so when the year changed over from 2016 to 2017 I packed away some unregistered (non-Canadian) books I had with notes tucked inside for future reference. Now that my Can-Lit project is over, I am registering them so they can be passed on.

I bought this book at a local charity shop back in 2016, but I'd read it before that. I have studied the Tudor period in the past, and I find it quite interesting, so I was glad to read this book. Plus, it starts on my birthday (just 430+ years too early)!

Journal Entry 2 by JessicaEby at Starbucks at 1151 Division in Kingston, Ontario Canada on Monday, August 06, 2018

Released 1 yr ago (8/6/2018 UTC) at Starbucks at 1151 Division in Kingston, Ontario Canada


My husband and I spent the long weekend in eastern Ontario, with Ottawa being the primary destination. We had planned to stop in Kingston to see one of the old Martello Towers that has been turned into a museum, but we were disappointed. This book (which I happened to have in the car with us) became something of a joke between us because it turns out that the Tower we were hoping to see is closed for restoration throughout the entire 2018 season-- Bloody Tower! lol. Because of the joke and because of the fact that Kingston is also home to the Penitentiary Museum, we thought that leaving this book behind us in Kingston seemed fitting. We left it at a Starbuck's just off the highway, propped up in a window at the back of the store.

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 as part of the 2018 "52 Towns in 52 Weeks" Release Challenge-- Kingston was Town #33 for me!
