My husband and I just finished the oh-so-wonderful ordeal of used car shopping, and it dawned on me that one really great release location would be the waiting room of the service area for an auto dealership. Every ti…

If it's a title that I think will be especially popular, I cover it, so that it will withstand multiple readings. I also cover a book I'm about to release if it is in otherwise good condition, but is old, and I'm worr…

...that there was a different way to do this! I confess, I am guilty of doing exactly what ateehee has been talking about--but not because I want to "boost my stats". I honestly did not know that there was a differ…

I was also a c-section mom... My daughter is now 18 months old. I didn't have any problems getting my milk in, but I did have some serious issues breastfeeding my daughter at first. She was born late on a Tuesday …

I just returned from vacation last night (where I had no 'net access), logged in to BC, and discovered that someone winged me while I was gone! What a great surprise...! Thank you to my mystery benefactor, whoever …

I've been a BC member since January, but I never had any journaled catches of wild releases until I released books in the waiting rooms of a local hospital... I recorded two catches in a period of two weeks. (Conside…

...that this is supposed to be fun, but you have to understand, the fun can get sucked out of it by people who take advantage of you. At least, that's the way I feel sometimes. In fact (returning to the original thre…

I'm glad to hear that the "shameless begging" messages have dried up for some other BCers. I confess, I mostly do trades and not too much in the way of wild releases, but I hope to change that over the next year or tw…

I am so sick of people PMing me, telling me (not asking me) to mail them this or that book--overseas, no less! And most of them seem to be people collecting books. If I thought this were solely a language barrier issue…

I don't know what your problem is. There's no need to be rude. If you are not interested, then don't help. Nuff said. I also do trades and have left books in the wild. I haven't been fortunate enough that anyon…

I went to a library sale yesterday. The last day was "bag day," so I got two bags of books for $8. I have limited funds, so it's a great way to pick up some books cheaply. Nancy

I've taken on a small project for the condominium complex where I live. I am stocking a bookshelf at the condo clubhouse. Rummage sale season is upon us here in Michigan, and I've already purchased (and registered) t…

Hmmmm...maybe we need another tag, one that designates a book that you're done with, but that is not to be traded (for whatever reason). I guess, though, in the end it certainly doesn't hurt to *ask* for a trade with …

How about a category for recently registered books? That way, people can see if something they want is newly available.

I think it would be extremely useful to be able to allow Bookcrossers to set up (or register) want lists that could be searched or crossreferenced by other Bookcrossers who want to trade books. Right now, we can wri…

Yes, that is the book. I was clicking on the entry for the book itself on the bookshelf...never occurred to me to just look at the bookshelf itself. Thanks! Nancy

I just released a book that I had found--already registered by another Bookcrosser. When I was done reading it, I released it. I didn't save or write down the BCID, though. I want to know if there is a way to make t…

I make paperbacks more durable by covering them in clear contact paper. (You can also do this with paper dustcovers for hardback books.) I would still put them in plastic bags for an outdoor release, though. The conta…

mecca, I have a sling for my daughter, but it's not very useful when it gets this cold out. It doesn't fit over my winter coat. I don't want to leave my coat open when I take my daughter outside, and I really don't …

I've been struggling with something--I saw the threads for the 7-in-1 challenge, and I'm interested...except that it would require me to go outside to face sub-zero wind chills... My name is Nancy and I live in Bloomf…
