Journal Entry 1 by wingherchellewing from Calgary, Alberta Canada on Thursday, April 21, 2011
So...here I am with so many books that wonderful bookcrossers from all over the world have sent me, and my Mount TBR is overwhelming me to the point that I am letting other bookcrossers read some of my books before I can get to them. That saying of "So many books, so little time" is very true...and what do I do???!!! I went to my local library, just to look for some Canadian Authors for the Canada Day release...
and...
they had a book sale going on...
2 for 1
*big sigh* I came home with 12 (some brand spanking new) hardcover books for $3. AND...
What can I say? More to add to my Mount TBR or maybe sending books forward?

Welcome to BookCrossing! This is a site for catching and releasing books and spreading the good karma of reading! Please make a journal entry when you FIND this book and let previous readers know how you came upon it. You may remain Anonymous if you like but it's very safe and spam free. Bookcrossers leave FREE books around for others to stumble upon...they read, and then re-release in a public place for someone else to enjoy. Of course you're welcome to keep the book if you prefer but it's more fun to watch them travel and to hear from them
once in a while. I hope you enjoy the book and I especially hope you enjoy BookCrossing as much as I do. Bookcrossers are amazing!!

Many thanks, herchelle

Brought home from the May meeting.

Journal Entry 4 by megami-no-ushi at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Friday, October 05, 2012
This was a fun and quirky book with a great premise that hooked me! While I wasn't expecting the middle section to go as it did, it really worked and made the story that much better!

Journal Entry 6 by DendriticTrees at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Saturday, March 16, 2013
Another of the books I didn't register after my dinner with megami-no-ushi, I've actually started this one, and its pretty excellent. I love this sort of meta-fiction.

Journal Entry 7 by DendriticTrees at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Friday, May 10, 2013
I love all books where characters jump out of novels and this was no exception, I especially like the semi-twist at the end, and the ending in general, which really wrapped up the book nicely.

Oops forgot to register this one. I picked this up from my daughter crossing-guard and am going to use for my “didn’t remember putting my name on it”

Journal Entry 20 by locker-monster at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Saturday, September 14, 2019
Picked up this book at the Calgary BookCrossing September meet-up. I like the idea of literary characters outside of their books, but I think this book won't be as crazy as the Thursday Next books.

Journal Entry 21 by locker-monster at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Saturday, October 12, 2019
Man, this book really squandered its potential. I was all ready to enjoy a book about literary characters and this bed and breakfast trying to figure them out, but then the author decided to focus on the daughter. And then she takes the daughter away from the bed and breakfast! What's the point of having these famous heroines if they aren't a big part of the plot? And then there's that reveal at the end which I didn't really enjoy. At least the book was a quick read.
