Well, hello there BookCrossing comm!

This one really tugged at my heartstrings, for several reasons.
It's a catch from Christchurch, where I had the extreme good fortune to go for the BookCrossing Convention of 2009. So many memories... the long, long flight with Gummihuhn, the stopover in Hong Kong where we searched for good noodle soup (and found it!), the trip around the South Island on a pair of hired motorbikes. Futurecat welcoming us into her home, [personal profile] lytteltonwitch  showing us around. And of course the Convention itself.

So this catch brings back a lot of good memories and happy thoughts. But they're tainted with the knowledge of what happened to the lovely city of Christchurch since. The place where the book was found, the Arts Centre, is closed now because of earthquake damage and may never reopen.

So, yeah. And then there is the entry itself. Go on, read it and you'll see what I mean.
This is really the kind of thing that keeps me going, as a BookCrosser. To me, this is what it's all about. Using a book as a means to reach out to another person we don't even know.
