It has been almost 4 months since I lasted posted about BookCrossing!
I have some catching up to do!
This year I plan to add to my archive of posts, that I call Adventures in BookCrossing, by posting about my Releases, and Catches, sharing news about Bookcrossing, and some of the great BookCrossing related articles written by my fellows over the years.
The big thrill for me, as a BookCrosser, came in early April when I was interviewed by a reporter for the local paper, for a May sidebar to a March AP Story, and then the AP Reporter responded to an E-mail I sent!
I used the platform of this Blog to elaborate on the reporting of the original story in hopes of spreading the word about BookCrossing.
Anyway, to begin the new year, I thought I'd share a short report on how the folks down under celebrated Christmas:
Seems there's a Christmas Eve tradition among BookCrossers there to gather in and decorate the Christmas tree. According to FutureCat, "This was the second time we've made a Christmas booktree, so we were all well organised with plenty of Christmas-themed books ( Everything from biblical stories to barbecue recipes to romances with "Christmas" in the title — about 80 books in total, I think )".
A bit more on the story can be read here.
FutureCat's FULL report can be read here, on her Blog. ;-D
As of this morning begins there are 523,325 BookCrossers around the world.
This closenit, award-winning, Community has collectively registered 3,617,270 books, in almost 6 years.
Join the fun, through the link in my left sidebar, and say Sneakeasy referred you. ;-D
