Not much to report
…other than that I’ve been reasonably successful with keeping up a steady stream of releases for the rest of the week, mostly around the university, and mostly having fun with themed releases:
- Ondine by Jean Giraudoux in the French Department
- Talk Language by Allan Pease and Alan Garner in the Linguistics Department
- The Merchant of Venice by William Shakespeare in the English Department
- A Spanish Lover by Joanna Trollope in the Spanish Department
- Regiment of Women by Clemence Dane in the Gender Studies Department
- Parallelogram by Thomas Caplan in the Maths Department
- The Winter’s Tale by William Shakespeare in the English Department
- Greek Science 2: Theophrastus to Galen by Benjamin Farrington in the Classics Department
- The Listeners by Monica Dickens in a phone booth
- The Story of Language by CL Barber in the Linguistics Department (or at least, I tried to – no sooner had I made release notes than I got a phone call from awhina demanding that I go and retrieve the book because she wanted it!)
- Selected Poems by Robert Browning in the English Department
- The Man Who Lied to Women by Carol O’Connell in the supermarket
And surprise surprise, if you release a lot of books, you get catches! I’ve had four catches in the last four days (not counting the one awhina “caught”), two from last weekend (Frogs at the Bottom of the Well and The Bridge Across Forever) and two from during the week (Greek Science and The Merchant of Venice).
That’s a lotta books!
Sounds like you’re having a great time catching and releasing!
