“The truly cultured are capable of owning thousands of unread books
without losing their composure or their desire for more.”
~ ~ Gabriel Zaid
I read a wide variety of books; even so, not all the books here on my shelf reflect my taste in reading. I often buy cheap books at garage sales etc with the specific aim of releasing them into the wild, and I'm also often given books by others to register for release.

Accurate Release Statistics : as at 8th August 2019.
1938 wild releases - all wild releases are true wild releases.
1126 early controlled releases made by journal entry only (when that was the only option).
877 later controlled releases through the system.
So my total release number is now 3941.
NB . . . sometimes my wild releases have been caught before I can do an 'official' release note - that's why 'my' wild release number is higher than the BC one on my profile.
Catch Rate: 331 catches from 1938 wild releases -------> 17.1%
