For BookCrossers: Reduce MTBR 2017 Challenge

OK, once again, I will set my goal at 65 (for consistency). I will count books registered by other BC'ers. I'll be counting books that I either read or choose to pass along unfinished, or dupes - books that come into my hands that I've read in the past. I'll also continue my tradition of having a "naughty" ticker, for books I read that aren't BookCrossing-registered books. I find that helps me to work on my BC books, or at least find a balance.

Thanks for continuing this group!

My ABC books:

1. David Copperfield
2. The Red Pony
3. The Worst Day of My Life, So Far
4. Heaven is For Real
5. Purge
6. Rogue Lawyer
7. Fall on Your Knees
8. Unlucky in Law
9. Before Your Dog Can Eat Your Homework, First You Have to Do It
10. The Box Children
11. Sanctuary Hill
12. Theft on Thursday
13. The Year of Magical Thinking
14. To Siberia
15. A Year in Provence
16. Belinda Goes to Bath
17. Room Service
18. Zorro
19. How Stella Got Her Groove Back
20. Vinegar Hill
21. The Ring
22. The Christmas Note
23. The Cat Who Came for Christmas

and my naughty ticker:

1. The Two Pound Tram
2. A Feather on the Breath of God
3. Without Warning
4. When Will There Be Good News
5. Casual Rex
6. After America
7. The Yokota Officers' Club

Looks like a good read. Hope you enjoy it.

>10 Nataliec7: Thanks, Nataliec7! Not so sure on this one. The protagonist is so angry, it kind of puts me off.

Jan 30, 8:03am Top

>11 iwillrejoice: I usually can tolerate angry protagonists, but I have a harder time with whiny protagonists.

Jan 30, 8:48am Top

Haha! I like your "naughty" books! I register all my books (except those of others and library books so I actually read very few non-BC-registered books. David Copperfield is such a l-o-n-g book. I read it when I was in high school. Mostly I don't read such long books any more. :D

Now reading: The Yokota Officers' Club by Sarah Bird. One of mine. Although, this is weird. It has a label from "bookproject.org" (now apparently defunct) which seems very similar to BookCrossing. Have you ever heard of it?

Mar 10, 5:57am Top

I've never heard of it.

Mar 10, 11:27am Top

>25 Nataliec7: I never had, either.

Mar 21, 8:58pm Top

Next up: To Siberia by Per Petterson. Registered by SueKeehnen.

Mar 22, 10:30pm Top

>24 iwillrejoice: I've never heard of it either. I wonder if it was a precursor of BookCrossing.

Mar 22, 11:34pm Top

>29 mathgirl40: Dunno. Apparently it was for books with a cause. Social injustice, or whatever. The site seemed pretty bare bones, from what I could see on the wayback machine. Guess it just didn't make it.

Mar 30, 2:27pm Top

Now reading A Year in Provence by Peter Mayle. Registered by motherof11.

Edited: Apr 1, 12:32pm Top
