BookCrossing Convention Update


I can’t believe the number of books! Table after table of books people brought to share with other BookCrossing. I think there were four 8 foot tables chock full of books. I managed to restrain myself and only came out with about 15 but who knows how good my restraint will be today…*whistle*.

I had a lot of fun “meeting” so many BookCrossers and BookRelay in person! Shouts out to all my book buddies…here’s to lots of fun today and tomorrow.

    Makes me wish I had given you my wishlist, Janelle! 🙂

    Glad you are all having a good time; do tell all the other bookcrossers “Hi”. I am not that active on bookcrossing anymore, but I daresay some of them will remember me!

    Tell everyone hi for me and help yourself to the books, will ya? I mean, SOMEONE needs to cart them home, right? May as well be someone who doesn’t have to pay an arm and a leg to Canada Post.

    Oh I have picked up a lot of books. About 25 or 30 of them yesterday and another 5 today. Plus all the books other BookCrossers brought for me. Just filling up my trunk!

    Hi Janelle,
    Time to get showered and dressed and to the subway station so we can meet up for the final day of the BC event. I am happy to have met you and discovered at least two things we have in common (other than being a woman). We both love books and are happily childfree!

    Check out my blog post on Teri and Tom’s Blog about BC. I got a nice picture of the cake.
