Hello Everyone. Hello.

I used to get 'unsaleable' books from a local Charity Shop specifically for release and these account for most of the stuff on my shelf. They would otherwise literally have gone into the bin. The unsung Hero I got them off (Lance) often slipped a few beauties in amongst the dross, bless him. If you've caught one of my books the chances are it's one of those. If you want to play the BookCrossing game on a limited budget I recommend this approach. Lots of charity shop bin the majority of their donations. Oxfam (and I speak as a book sorter there) can be fussy about bookplates. We don't pulp books directly but sell them by weight if they're 'unsaleable'. Good copies will re-enter circulation. Bare in mind that if you donate BC books to Oxfam and the sorter is a BookCrosser you're basically condemning them to buying those books.

Books are like sharks: if they stop moving, they die.

Here is a map of the countries my books have gone to (in progess - I'll add countries as and when I go back through my catches):
