Charleston BookCrossing Convention

I signed up for BookCrossing years ago. You’d think as both a bibliophile and a Where’s Georger, I’d love BookCrossing. The problem is that I’ve read a few books and released them into the wild with the BC markings and then never ever heard from them again in the years that they’ve been out there. I hang on and get their newsletter, but I’m not really that active.

The most recent one mentions their national convention, which this year is in Charleston, not that far from me. I had the slightest tinge that it might be interesting and worth driving down for it until I saw the registration fees was between $95 and $145 depending on when you register. They might have daily registration if space is available. So, forget that. I guess I’ll remain as a not very active, not that committed distant cousin of the community.

    It’s a shame you won’t be joining us in Charleston. I have been to a couple of these conventions and they are always a lot of fun!

    I released at least a dozen books with BC markings and never received any kind of hits on mine either. It made me lose interest in BC in a large way, I hadn’t really thought about it in a long time until you mentioned it just now. I’ll have to go check for hits on my books.
