When I saw that a couple of BookCrossers from Ripon had been releasing books in our local red telephone box book exchanges yesterday, I realised that it was quite a while since I’d been to some of them – and decided to remedy that. So today, I spent a very pleasant sunny Bank Holiday Monday afternoon touring around five of them, swapping books as I went. Lovely!
The BookCrossing stickers ensured that I couldn't resist bringing home this book with me . . . . although I know absolutely nothing about it . . . .

Knaresborough, North Yorkshire United Kingdom on Saturday, June 1, 2019
Odd but good! I enjoyed reading about the wet weekend of a strange, extended family who gather to pack up the family's former holiday home ahead of the removal vans.
- Iris, who's no longer married to Paul, who's there with his second wife Kristin - they've recently had a baby daughter, as yet unnamed
- Iris and Paul's grown-up son Kurt
- Paul's twin sister Marti and her daughter Luce.
Iris's mother Rosa, who's approaching her 100th birthday, is miles away in a nursing home, yet her presence is felt and the novel goes off at a tangent in the middle to recount her lifestory - backwards!
I don't think I'd like to meet any of them in real life, the younger generation in particular seem quite unpleasant, but was happy enough to follow their ups and downs for a while . . . .

Brigantes Bar & Brasserie OBCZ / Meetup Venue in York, North Yorkshire United Kingdom on Tuesday, June 4, 2019
Released 4 yrs ago (6/4/2019 UTC) at Brigantes Bar & Brasserie OBCZ / Meetup Venue in York, North Yorkshire United Kingdom
WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Left on the BookCrossing bookshelves in the pub where the York BookCrossers hold their monthly gatherings while enjoying a very nice lunch there today. I've not attended a meet for years - but my books do from time to time . . .
Well over a million people around the world give their books a unique BookCrossing IDentity number (BCID) before sending them out to find new readers. Since the start of the scheme in April 2001 over twelve million such books have been put into circulation. This is one of them!
Our hope is that we can track the progress of our books once they've left our hands - and that's possible if finders like you visit the website, key in the BCID and leave a comment, however long or short. It's fun, it doesn't have to cost anything, although the site always appreciates donations towards running costs, and you can remain anonymous if you wish. You don't have to join but if you do you'll be able to number and track your own books!
