WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Left on a ledge inside the maze as we were trying to find our way around it. A few minutes later we found ourselves somehow on the other side of the fence from where we left the book, and suddenly heard someone say "Look! A free book!".
Happy Bookcrossing to whoever you were!
I found the book just as descibed in the prior journal entry - on a ledge, in a maze. Having never heard of BookCrossing before I took a few minutes to read through the label and suss out what BookCrossing is about. "What a neat idea" I thought as I put the book into my bag, turned around and suddenly realised my concentration had been broken and I had absolutely no idea anymore of where I was in the maze.Just as well I had my 7yr old with me to show me the way out. :)
I traded this book at the Melbourne Oasis YHA (Hostel). I've read some Pohl books before. This is not one of his better works. I'm now in Tasmania and have finished the book. I could give it away here, but just for fun I'm thinking of holding it until I return home to the USA in a couple of days. It tickles me to give it lots of distance.
It is ironic that decades ago I was doing something like this on my own. I bought books and gave them away with the stipulation they be given away. That was before the web was ubiquitous and easy to use. So I had no way to track the books. Instead I signed and dated the book and asked that others do the same. I wonder what happened to those books.
Doing it the way you are doing it is much better. Good for you!
CAUGHT IN MELBOURNE VICTORIA AUSTRALIA
I caught it from a friend who got it from Australia. I plan to pass it on to another of my friends. Perhaps give it to a friend out of state or country.

The book did not make it out of Sunily's house. Her dad found it in a box of books headed for the used book store.
