BookCrossing 10th Anniversary Convention

Okay, tally is in. I released 67 books and took home 42. Not as good as I’d like but hey it’s FEWER books!

I’d especially glad to have picked up:

A Moomin book. I only started reading them in the last couple of years. To be more accurate, I only found out that there are actually books where all those cute Japanese character goods come from. Really like the series, it’s more like grown up books with childlike illustration rather than children’s book.

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne
Haven’t seen the movie, but heard great things about both the book and the movie.

Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook by Anthony Bourdain
His latest book

The Road to McCarthy by Pete McCarthy
A BCer had brought it all the way from Ireland.

The Cave of the Yellow Dog by Byambasuren Davaa, Lisa Reisch
It was actually a trade with Goalie. I am so glad this book comes with lots of colored pages. Couldn’t stop looking at the beautiful pictures: the charming smiles of the little girls, the breathtaking vistas of the highland and the colorful attire of the Mongolians. Thank you!

Weight: The Myth of Atlas and Heracles by Jeanette Winterson
I was delighted to find an audio CD at the book buffet, and even more so when I found out that it’s part of the Cannongate myth series.
