Journal Entry 1 by ChapmanCoffeeOC from Orange, California USA on Friday, June 15, 2007
Donated to the Official Book Crossing Zone at Chapman Coffee House,
505 N Glassell in Orange.

A comment from "mkpam", the zone manager: Published in 1963. Made into
a movie ~1968-70. It is one of my absolute, all-time favorite movies!
If the book is as good, it should be really powerful. I only wish my TBR box weren't overflowing - I just CAN'T "catch" any more.

Rescued from the OBCZ at Chapman Coffee House, in Orange, this morning at around 11am. ;-D

A Hardcover, published in 1963 ( $4.95 cover price! ), this is a 6th printing from June of that year, and except for a bit of jackt damage is in excellent shape.( Click on Picture to Enlarge! )

On the inside is a signature in ink, the 1st letter of the last name I am not sure of, that has a date of August 1963.

Morris L. West ( 1916 - 1999 ) was one of the most beloved authors in Australia.

The Shoes of the Fisherman envisioned the election and career of a Slavic Pope, 15 years before the ascension of Karol Wojtyła to his historical role of becoming Pope John Paul II.

It was filmed in 1968 - directed by Michael Anderson, and featured Anthony Quinn ( His Character, who becomes Pope, has MY FIRST NAME! ), Laurence Olivier, David Janssen, Leo McKern and John Geilgud.

Journal Entry 4 by LJB-550032 at Pepperdine University ( Stauffer Chapel ) in Malibu, California USA on Saturday, August 04, 2007

Released 12 yrs ago (8/5/2007 UTC) at Pepperdine University ( Stauffer Chapel ) in Malibu, California USA



A Themed Release! ;-D

Today I revisited a 66 mile bike ride I 1st took in 2002, along Pacific Coast Highway, and in the mountains above it, in the Malibu area along the SoCal Coast, north of Santa Monica.

I did it to finally add photos to a story I wrote for my BikeBlog ( I'll post a link to an updated story, with pictures, later in the week. ).

I've taken the opportunity to do some truly "Wild" Releases. ;-D

This is #3.

The Chapel is just off Banowsky Blvd.

I left the book out front, on this fountain, at 830am.

I did not realize there would a reflection in the windows, and so if you look carefully you might even see me taking the the photo from the nearby steps. ( Click on Picture to Enlarge! ) ;-D
