And then I rode my bike back home, which was a lot easier and faster than the bike ride there, because I didn't stick to the Trans-Canada Trail on the return trip. Phew. The one bad thing is that upon my arrival at WotS I realized that I had forgotten to bring the pen and stickypad that I had wanted to bring, therefore I released the books without any front page indication that they were BookCrossing books. I took solace in the fact that I had written - in blue marker - www.bookcrossing.com on the top and bottom page-ends of the books, so at least there was some sort of outside-of-book marker (no pun intended). Anyway, having released ten books at WotS, I was hoping for at least one semi-quick catch to make me feel better about their sticky-less covers. Yesterday's was the first of the ten. I hope it's only the start. Here's the catch:
I'm not usually a fan of historical fiction, but this book really grabbed me. I found the book on a bench at Word on the Street (book festival) at the Vancouver Public Library. I plan to give it to a friend to read and take to Amsterdam to release it there.
