Under the cut are all the books I read, listened to, or started but didn't finish this year. It may well be a personal best. All links are BookCrossing books.

nimrodiel4:00pm: 10th international Tiara Sweeps
I know there are some older bookcrossers here who don't always check into the forums frequently. I'm re-energizing the International Tiara Sweeps after a three year hiatus when the last winner stopped being active in bookcrossing.

Come join in the fun!

melydia1:01pm: 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: http://www.bookcrossing.com/mybookshelf/AgnesOfBohemia/

Glad to be here!

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

thebiblioholic1:04am: BCinDC

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.

Photos from the weekend are on Flickr.

I just registered a pile of books for the BC in DC BookCrossing convention.

elven_ranger4:21pm: 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...

katekintailbc12:11am: Convention 2011 registration price increases on Jan 1!
The Early Bird Rate for the 2011 BookCrossing Convention registration expires as the clock ticks over into the new year! That’s just two weeks away. We are on Eastern Standard Time here in D.C. and so that is when the change will become effective.

If you would like to qualify for the lower $150 rate you must do 2 things:

  1. you must submit your registration form BEFORE the clock strikes midnight on December 31, 2010 EST. (That’s when the ball falls in Times Square.)

  2. you must submit payment within 3 business days. That means that your PayPal transaction must be submitted or your check postmarked by Wednesday, January 5, 2011. If you cannot make this deadline then please send the regular convention fee amount of $175.

There are some special deals available now on the website: http://tinyurl.com/bcindcdeals In order to qualify you must submit your PayPal payment or postmark your check within 3 business days of submitting your registration form. Don’t get disqualified from some great deals by procrastinating on sending in the payment.

(Please note: if you submitted your forms prior to December 1 and you have already paid, you will be grandfathered in and are qualified for promotions regardless of the length of time it took you to pay).

What are you waiting for? We want to see YOU at the convention in April, so register today! http://tinyurl.com/bcindcregistration

kairon131:24pm: Decisions
Two things:
To stop me from getting more and more frustrated and pissed off, I will be mostly avoiding the Bookcrossing site until they've ironed out the worst of the bugs. (I suspect I'll be avoiding it to some extent afterwards, as well.  I don't find it comfortable to read the forum posts any more, and the style isn't going to change any time soon, alas.)
I won't be wild releasing any books until the site is properly functional.  I can't do anything about the books already out there, but I don't want someone to find one of my books and be led to the site while it's in this state.

kairon131:37am: Pennina - sad news
For those of you who don't visit Chit-Chat very often these days, some sad news - BookCrosser Pennina has died, after seeming to be on the mend from a recent illness.  The BookCrossing thread is here:
Her presence in the BookCrossing forums will be missed. I met her at the Unconvention in Brighton, and wish now I'd had more time to talk to her.

bluemchenblatt8:03am: Romance
Hello everyone!My MtTBR is a thrilling adventure, but lately there's one thing missing: some more romance. There's nothing better to relax and make you feel alright than some little, cute story with a happy end. Well, the happy end isn't a must and it might be another genre with romance, but I'd like to know your favourite romantic reads! (So I can do a search on bookmooch and fetch some.) I'm just requesting that there's some sort of storyline.
So, throw some titles at me and if you ever think of any other feel-good book don't hesitate to talk to me about it! (Either here, at the BC-site or via email.)

Have a wonderful, inspiring day,

PS: I don't mind if you give an explanation why you like them, though it's not obligatory -of course!

poeticgoddss2:26pm: I'm searching for three books. THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER, GET ME OUT OF HERE and THE GLASS CASTLE. Does anyone have these books that's willing to share them?

5th September 2009

yuna_hen9:25pm: I adore bookcrossing, and I have to admit that everytime I sit down at a cafe or some other place and find a book crossing book, it's like its own unique thrill!

One thing that I adore about bookcrossing is that half of the time I would never have picked up the book in general, and then, suddenly, I've got this book to read and understand in relation to other books.

It's a really fun experience, one that really does help in the long run!

How many is the most you've "let out" at one time (day)?

I think my max was...three. Not so much, but still fun times!

innae9:53am: Unusually excited about releasing books
I love Bookcrossing, but have been less than excited about releasing books lately (example, I had over 20 books for the One Word challenge in August, I released like 3 :( -- But September is a new month, and I am so excited for the LUCIA challenge (Read about it here)

Releasing for charity, that is just too cool. And I have some books with unusual female names that I am just so excited to release in honor of this awesome charity (like Miko)

I encourage everyone to join us!!

(Crossposted to my personal journal, so sorry for anyone who gets to see this twice)
