Journal Entry 1 by Vroomfondel from Leeds, West Yorkshire United Kingdom on Friday, July 23, 2004
A really funny book. How a drunken bet in a bar in London lead to two hungover men getting an early morning train to Scotland then led to two very silly men travelling around the world.

Updated 30 July: On its way, as a RABCK, to allysther as she had it on her wishlist.

Ahhhh, the sound of an envelope in the mailbox. A quick jog to the front door lets me know that I will get no housework done this weekend. I am on page 4 and have already reorganised my day to get some extra reading done.

Thank you, Gothmarcus, for sending the book to me. You have brightened what was looking like a dreary day, and you have placed a long sought after book in my happy little hands. Thank you thank you thank you.

Wat a fun book! I had a marvelous time reading Dave Gorman's adventures. I had just as much fun convincing a friend that she *had* to read it. She'd never heard of the book, so it took some doing, but I know she will enjoy herself.

Thanks again, Gothmarcus!

Received from allysther. Looks wacky. Thanks!

This was hilarious. Both the story and the writing were funny.

This book is released in memory of BookCrosser purple58, who wanted all of her books to find good homes after she was gone. Please feel free to read it, keep it, pass it on...whatever you wish. If you have something to say about the book, or a memory to share about Holly, please feel free to post it here: she was never shy about sharing her opinions, so she wouldn't expect any less.

I'm so glad you've found this book!

Please take a moment to make a journal entry and let the 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 5 by winghyphen8wing at Honolulu, Hawaii USA on Tuesday, November 22, 2016
This book was found in the library of Purple58, a very special woman whom I was fortunate enough to meet through our BookCrossing group, the Table of Contents.

Fiercely independent, with a loving heart and a wicked sense of humor, she was passionate about the things she believed in and was willing to stand up and be counted when necessary. She was truly a one of a kind individual, and she will be missed by all of her many friends...who prefer to believe that she's off in Vegas, having a fabulous time and eating as many desserts as she wants.

This book followed me home from purple58's wonderful send-off - it was a terrific party and I think she would have been very pleased with it.

This book will be heading out soon in honor of a special woman who, like many BookCrossers, had a very impressive number of books. It's too bad she didn't journal more of them, because when she did, she always had something interesting to say.
