ast week I released a few books in the reception area along the corridor from our office. There’s always a queue of students waiting there to see the student advisors, so I thought some of them might appreciate a book to read while they waited. It worked, too, because the books were snatched up very fast, and even better, I got a couple of catches today: Nine Uses For An Ex-Boyfriend by Sarra Manning and The Spa Decameron by Fay Weldon. The catcher is re-releasing them in another part of the university, so hopefully they’ll keep travelling.
I don’t think I’ve made a catch report since about February, so I’ve got a few others to report on too:
- Prized Possessions by Avery Corman turned up after being lost in storage, and has since been re-released in Germany
- A second catch for The New Cat Handbook by Ulrike Muller
- Another book that’s travelled to Germany, with a stop-off in Auckland first: No Safe Place by Richard North Patterson
- Visitors by Caroline MacDonald, my themed release in the UFO museum in Roswell finally got caught three years later
- Another themed release, this time from the Melbourne convention, and caught twice: The Street 2 by Lachlan McCulloch
- A second catch for Mask of the Andes by Jon Cleary
- The Client by John Grisham, released five years ago and caught by someone definitely in need of a good book
- A second catch in Ireland for Les enfants de la liberté by Marc Levy (and if my rusty French is translating the journal entry correctly, it’s been re-released in Switzerland)
- No idea how Toccata & Rain by Philip Salom ended up in the freezer of the Melbourne YHA, but it got caught there!
As I always say when I post these lists, I really must release more books! Reading through all those journal entries has reminded me what fun it is 🙂
