The quality of Releasing is not strange;
It satisfies the urge to please and spreads the love of Books
Upon the one Bequeathed. It is twice blest:
It blesseth those that Release and those that Catch.
'Tis tidiest of the tidiest; it becomes
The cluttered housewife better than her mess;
Her giving shows the force of domestic power,
The attribute of soothing neatness,
Wherein she gets admiring looks from slobs;
But releasing is beyond domestic life,
It is encouraged in Challenges and Rings,
It is an attribute of all who Play;
And BookCrossing becomes a noble thing
When Challenges season Releasing. Therefore, All,
Though Releasing be our object, consider this,
That in the course of letting go none of us
Should see bare shelves; we do speed to booksales,
And those same bookshelves shall be restocked for next month
And future Challenges. I have spoke thus much
To justify my weekly trips to shops,
Bazaars and booksales, this search for endless Titles
Must find compensation by Releasing even more.
(with apologies to Wm Shakespeare)
