Sending to Future Cat for the New Zealand Convention.

Journal Entry 3 by futurecat from Christchurch, Canterbury New Zealand on Monday, April 18, 2005
A huge sack of books arrived today - too late for the convention, unfortunately, but they'll still be greatly appreciated by the Christchurch Bookcrossers, and a few might end up travelling over to Australia for the Brisbane convention in June.

Wow, what a lot of copies of Tom Sawyer! I'm sure we'll find something creative to do with them...

Many thanks nekki!

Way back at Easter the Christchurch Bookcrossers received a wonderful m-bag full of books all the way from America, and amongst the amazing treasures hidden within were a large number of copies of Tom Sawyer. We decided we had to do something special with them, but our first plan (to get them to a school in one of the tsunami affected areas) fell through, so they've been languishing in my office for many months, waiting for inspiration.

Inspiration struck this weekend, and Lytteltonwitch and decided to take the books (and nekki) on a bookcrossing tour of New Zealand (well, a small part of it, anyway - we only had three days, so covering the whole country was a bit out of our reach!), releasing copies of books as we went.

And here's the first release: on the side of the road just south of Christchurch, in typical Canterbury farming country. The flat Canterbury Plains stretch almost as far as the eye can see, but that dark smudge on the horizon is the Southern Alps, the mountain range that runs down the centre of the South Island.

On to the next stop on our tour...
