Only Three Books: 03/13/07
Tonight was another BookCrossing meeting. We hold our local ones the second Tuesday of every month. Even though Connor wouldn't be there tonight, Sean insisted on coming along. I packed a bag of pens, paper, cookies, a box juice and some water to keep him occupied. It worked for the most part but when it was obvious that things were close to wrapping up he started to get a little squirrelly. Rather than force him to stay for a few more minutes of chitchat, I said my goodbyes and we headed home. He says next month I can go by myself but I have a feeling he'll change his mind come April.
We had a smaller the normal crowd with only about half our regular membership showing up. On top of that most people brought fewer books than usual. I had the most at eleven books, though most of these I ended up wild releasing afterwards. The smaller group and fewer books helped me stay with my goal of taking home fewer books than I brought with me; I only took three. Two books were from another member and the third was one from the Dublin library shelf for Sean which I registered when we got home.
