A Glimmer of Hope

Book 3 - #SendMyBook

Book 3 – #SendMyBook

These last few months, I’ve really been losing hope about this website and those feelings have increased over the last couple of weeks.

The back story: I left Book #3 in Amalfi, Italy in August 2014 with a lovely couple from New Zealand who were visiting with their daughter who lives in England. It’s almost a year later with no word of its whereabouts.

I began to question why I started this project/blog. Why would people think it was a cool idea to send a blank journal around the world for anyone to write in? Continue reading

I Wonder If There’s Chocolate In These Easter Eggs!

Well, it’s that time again. Time to go looking for my books. Book #1 was last seen in Taormina, Sicily, book #2 in Alaska and book #3 in Amalfi, Italy.

So, my trip is all booked for this summer and I’m soooooo excited, I can’t wait. Imagine if I actually found one of them. That would prove just how small a world we live in, wouldn’t it?

Any guesses as to where I might be going? Here’s a clue:Screen Shot 2015-03-18 at 9.58.31 PM

Book 3 – #SendMyBook heading out into the world. This one, unlike Books 1 and 2, will be hand-delivered by me and my daughter Shay and released into the wild somewhere along our travels through Italy.

Is it merely a coincidence that Book 1 was found in Rome by Luca back in 2012? Perhaps it’s still there and will show up serendipitously in a photo of Shay by the Trevi Fountain. How cool would that be?

So, you see, there’s a lot of pressure on Book 3 because I fear Book 2 has been dropped in a lake in BC….:(

Ciao for now!!

Bon Voyage, Again

Book Around The World

So, here I am, 10 months after the launch of Book#1, sending Book#2 out into the wide, blue yonder. I have hopes for this one, I feel more connected to it and that’s probably because it’s technically more advanced than the first one. Okay, so it is still just a book but this one has a little black and white maze in a box on the cover (also known as a QR Code) that, when scanned, will bring the user to this site. Continue reading

“I found your book where I work, in an hostal of Madrid. You had a very original idea. I will do everything possible to make your book travel as you desire. I will pass the book to someone who understands its role and doesn’t spoil it. I hope the book backs soon into your hands and you can enjoy its adventures.” Continue reading
