Most of the info below is out of date as of November 2012 and some of the links are broken, but I'm leaving it
I stopped tracking these in the States because I didn't BC often and didn't remember to update the pages. This summer in Prague I've started releasing again and have started tracking them again:
- Wild Released: 2007 - not too many and far more are int'l but they're fun to track.
- alphabetical List of true wild releases and catches in Australia, January - November 2005.
- I didn't wild release much in Japan due to the language barrier but I often left books where other teachers could find them. A fair few of them have been caught by other teachers.
- Books Read in 2005 - was really from the start of my RTW trip on 27 November 2004 through my arrival in Japan on 5 November 2005. I wish I had that time to read.
- Books Read in Japan - 5 November 2005 - 16 June 2006. Work took up far too much of my free time and that list was pathetic.
Been a reader (and sports fan!) from an early age and will read almost anything. I don't really have a favourite genre, though I tend to read a lot of non-fiction especially travelogues, history and language related books. As far as fiction, I tend to enjoy crime/thrillers with a dose of chick lit thrown in for good measure. It's not a guilty pleasure because I don't feel the least bit guilty reading a good book :)
I do enjoy the fun of wild releasing, but I'm open to rings, rays, trades, RABCKs, whatever and am somewhat active on BookRelay and BookMooch. Will rarely say no unless I have plans for the book or if it's just too big to post so feel free to ask.
If you're the ringing sort...
