BookCrossing Article in Street Sense

Recently I met with Kelsey Osterman, a reporter for Street Sense. This biweekly newspaper is written, published, and sold mainly by homeless and formerly homeless people. Ms. Osterman's editor had found a BookCrossing book, and she contacted BCinDC about doing an interview. We met up with her a few weeks ago, and the article is the cover story for the latest issue. If you're in the Washington area, purchase a copy for only $1 from one of their vendors. Otherwise, you can read the article here: Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost.

Hi, I just thought I'd introduce myself.

I'm 28 years old and I live in Boston, MA. I am relatively new to Bookcrossing and only have a few books up on my shelf at the moment. I still haven't quite figured out how to do the wish list yet. If I could figure it out, the first author I would put on is Emile Zola.

Here is my Bookcrossing link:

Glad to be here!

ETA: Figured out the wish list and added some books =D



This weekend (actually, also Thursday and Friday) I was in Washington D.C. attending the BC in DC BookCrossing 10th Anniversary convention. I had a fabulous time catching up with old friends, making new friends, and touring the sights in Washington. The organizers did an amazing job! I released a duffel bag's worth of books and managed to come home with fewer books than I left with.

Large used books to be moved along, for postage only. Paypal only please as would like to get as many as possible, shifted this coming weekend. UK based, happy to send worldwide. Up to 5 books per parcel (no more because they are large books and I have to carry parcels to post office on foot!) though you can have as many parcels as you want. Let me know what you are interested in and if its UK or foreign, then I can work out exact postage.

I dont have time for bookcrossing myself thanks to uni, work, theatre company, stunt work, voluntary work taking up every waking moment, but maybe some of the people who do, would be interested in some of this lot. I asked the local thrift shops and they only want "nice easy novels for mature ladies" so it would be the bin if they dont go...
