Bookcrossing

I just love for my books to be found and registered at my bookcrossing page...here is an entry on a quilt book I had that I left at my daughter's dermatologists office months ago:

volunteers
at the veteran's hospital, making quilts for donation to hospice
patients =
am half way through reading is then will pass on to some of the
hospital
staff who are quilters



and after this person read it, she passed it on to another person who registered it as found and here is her entry:

I am relatively new to quilting and am amazed by the people who have a
similar interest.  I love a quilt that comes with a story, and The Pink
Ribbon Quilt Project is filled with very touching stories of
heartbreak,
courage and triumph.  I will pass the book among members of a local
quilters' club and share the inspiration.

CAUGHT IN LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY USA



The book I dropped was Threading Together-the Pink Ribbon Project.  I also left another quilting book on Friday in my pulmonary doc's office...it was a book of oral histories of quilters.  At one point I was so into leaving books that friends and co-workers where giving me their books to drop.  I've slowed down considerably because I don't read as fast and I still have tons and tons of books boxed up in storage that need to be weeded down.  I also have initiated rings (book travels full circle and comes back to you, if you're lucky) and rays (you send a book out and don't expect for it to come back) and have participated in rings and rays of others...usually with these a book will travel all over the globe.  Some times leaving a book someplace is an undercover mission...I really don't want anyone see me leave the book and yell after me as I'm leaving "hey lady, you forgot your book"...the fun is doing it and waiting to see if someone actually registers it and even moreso, leaves a review of it.

  1. That's pretty cool. I had a blank book going around at one point and lost touch with it. It hasn't come home yet so maybe it's still roaming the world.
