Elizabeth Gilbert gets ready to travel

28 Sep

Going to Las Vegas is exciting. I’m heading off at the start of next week, and accompanying me will be Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat Pray Love. This book will be my first “BookCrossing” release, a wild release at that, meaning that it will be left anonymously in a random location to (hopefully) make another book-lover’s day. Note that the book has been decked out in “Official BookCrossing Book” stickers! It’s funny, I think giving does feel better than receiving, even when I’m not sure who the recipient will be.

    How fun. Have you been doing BookCrossing long? I tried a long time ago and unfortunately at the time not a lot of Bookcrossing participants were in my area. I guess I shouldn’t go in with the expectation that people will report on it but I think it’d be fun.

      Actually I just joined BookCrossing and this is my first release. I’m trying not to expect too much, since it’s likely someone will just pick it up and take it without bothering to look at the website, but you never know! When it does work out it’s awesome.

    How exciting!! I hope whoever picks it up absolutely loves it, perhaps even finds it inspiring. Maybe it will be someone who has wanted that particular book for a long time, and then there it is. SO COOL! Let us know where you drop it off.

    EPL made me very happy, and because of it I have a favourite author whose books all stand on my shelves now. This is a wonderful one to give away.

    I have never heard of BookCrossing before but absolutely LOVE the concept. I have bookmarked the website and am going to give it a go. Thanks for this. 🙂

      It is such a great idea, isn’t it? I actually released my first book today, and I feel both happy for giving something away, and excited to see what happens next! It’s a great way to share.
