Hey there!

I've been a bookcrosser for eight years now and I still call myself lucky to have found this site. I read books, that I would never have found myself and I go places, e.g. all the 26 cantons of Switzerland in 24 hours (see Release Challenges).

And yes, I know it's not the newest picture. But it's the best of me while reading. So, it stays even though the mohawk didn't.

Release Challenges:
It's actually only one challenge at the moment and I managed it already a while ago. I released 26 books - one in each canton (county) of Switzerland - within one day. Yes, a Tour de Suisse with public transport. My release schedule for March 7, 2007:
