These books are being released on 9th September 2005 in memory of my cousin Michael Channer (1/04/80 - 09/09/04). Michael was working as a pilot in Zambia last year when he died in a tragic accident. He is greatly missed by his family and friends.

This release challenge hopes to introduce some new people to bookcrossing and features books which have some connection with his life!

Diese Buecher werden am 9. September 2005 in Erinnerung an meinen Cousin Michael Channer (01/04/80 - 09/09/04) freigelassen. Michael arbeitete letztes Jahr als Pilot in Zambia, als er durch einen tragischen Unfall ums Leben kam. Seine Familie und seine Freunde vermissen ihn sehr.

Mit dieser "Release Challenge" möchte ich Bookcrossing neuen Menschen vorstellen. Die freigelassenen Bücher haben alle eine Beziehung zu Michaels Leben.

I thought this bear looked wild and rugged, and like a Canadian Bear! The travel guide was tucked into his arm to look after :-)

Michael grew up on the Herb Garden (Almonte, Ontario) and did his fair share of gardening, so this bear seemed appropriate!
