TSS: Big Bookcrossing Release (and a Free Book Offer)!

In early April, thousands of librarians will come to George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston.

I will be there, releasing Bookcrossing books. A lot of books. Over three hundred books!

A few months back, I posted a request for children's books to be released at the upcoming Texas Library Association Conference. I was amazed at what I received. Books arrived from Australia, the UK, Canada, and from many of the fifty states. Boxes and boxes and boxes of books.

Here's hoping that many books are found, read, and logged in. Here's hoping that many librarians join Bookcrossing. Here's hoping that Bookcrossing's motto comes true: "Make the whole world a library."

Would you like to join Bookcrossing? I have a standing offer. If you join Bookcrossing and use my BC name (debnance) as the your referral person, I will be happy to send you a book from my available shelf. Please note: I can only mail books to those who live in the US because of mailing expense.


  1. whoa. i love the idea of doing this at a library conference! i might have to suggest it for my next state conference!

  2. That is so nice of you! I hope all your books find good homes! Have a great week!

  3. I shiver with delight at the thought of bein in the midst of all those books :-D

    IDK how to help ya with The Book Thief. Maybe it's just a taste thing? I know there were a few (very small few, mind you) people who gave the book two or less stars on LibraryThing, so you're not the only one.

  4. I'm a little worried about transporting all these books since carts are not allowed on the conference floor. I've broken them into four stacks, one for each day of the conference. About seventy-five books for each day. But they are children's books, so that should help a little.

  5. I think it's great that people are so willing to donate books. Enjoy the conference!

  6. What a nice offer! That's great that so many books were donated :)


Thank you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts!
