Journal Entry 1 by dutchbooky from Amsterdam, Noord-Holland Netherlands on Thursday, July 06, 2006
This is my journal for the Lifetime Release Challenge that I have decided to join as of July 6, 2006. My aim is to send out at least one book to every country in the world and have it journaled.

Thanks to charbono for starting this and to wyando for maintaining the site and details! See around the world in 233 books and Lifetime Release Challenge for more information.

I have been sending out a couple of books before joining and will use these as a start for my first journals. I will try and release at least one book every 4-6 weeks. These will be either books I have registered, or books I have received from others. For the challenge I will use books that I send out as RABCK's, trades, swaps and wild releases. I will not count bookrings and rays, unless I am the last one in the ray!
