I am so happy I decided to do this. It feels so good to get rid of more stuff that I don’t need and to give it to someone who will appreciate it! 6 years ago
So, next week I am going to another city for some work training. Here I will release my very first bookcrossing book into the wild. I am so excited, yet nervous. I don’t understand why I am so attached to my books. Oh well, at least I picked one that I know I won’t miss! 6 years ago
I thought this would be an easy goal, but I was wrong. I didn’t think I was so attached to the books in my home. It’s not like I read all of them. I think it’s because I’m not certain what will happen once I release it. Even if I send it to someone instead of at a public spot, that person may keep it instead of passing it on. 6 years ago
Admittedly it was Dan Brown book, Deception point but I’ve finally done it. Released a book into the wild for someone else to enjoy.
Another 43T goal to tick as completed. I love it! 8 years ago
...now I just have to actually part with a book.
It’s like tearing out some of my soul though. I mean, if it was anything else, like my first born, my collection of travel adapters, the greek grapa that has been sitting in my cupboard for three years, photos of my ex… it would be easier to leave that for a stranger to enjoy than one of my precious books!
I have to do this though. Just to get the ball rolling… 8 years ago
