You may have noticed that there is a new “page” here on the blog?! Bookcrossing Conventions & UnConventions is what it is called. Here I will be posting all things related to Bookcrossing Conventions & UnConventions. Very exciting right?
As I have been doing a lot more reading recently, it is time for me yo get my TBR pile down! I will be sending some books out via RABCK and hopefully the receivers will enjoy the books just as much as I have.
I am also in the process of planning a monthly meet up for Northamptonshire (and other local ‘shires’) at The Towcester Mill Brewery; as The Mill has its own Official Bookcrossing Zone, which I am the Zone Manager. I will let you all know when and what time it is.
I have got my bookplates all sorted for the UnCon in September – I am super excited as I missed the official Convention in April.
Oh yes! It is finally here! On Friday, 21st April it will be the 16th International Bookcrossing Day as on April 21, 2001, BookCrossing.com was launched. It is very exciting – if you wish to know more about Bookcrossing; just click here!
I have set myself a challenge, to release 21 books on April 21st. Originally, I was supposed to be attending the International Convention in Oslo, however I was unable to get the time off work. So, I thought as I have not been put on work on the Friday (strange I know – silly shifts!) I would do a mass release! I am super excited about it. I have never really done a ‘proper’ release challenge before. As some of you may already know, I am also the OBCZ manager at Towcester Mill Brewery. I have too many books upon the shelves; this was when I started releasing the odd one up at the shop; which is now at the Bell Plantation here in Towcester. I know that it is going to take a lot of organising and it is now the 19th April. I can do it!
I have also decided to show my releases on my personal and the OBCZ Instagram accounts – keep your eyes peeled!
I am rather excited! I have been doing a lot of reading recently and I have decided that I need to get away for a little but. I have decided that if I am unable to attend the Jamberry International Conference in Utah in June, I will attend the International Bookcrossing Convention in Oslo. I WILL attend! I WILL attend! I WILL attend!
I am going to make the most of this trip to Norway. I will have some books to release while I am there and I will be naughty and read my Kindle on the journey. I have set myself a challenge of only reading 10 books for the Goodreads reading Challenge for 2017
My muse has also returned! I completed another assignment for my Writer’s Bureau – which I am very excited about! I am sending that out tomorrow morning; hopefully I will get the feedback quickly. I have been thinking about releasing the assignment as a short story on Createspace…what do you all think?
