A catch, a catch, I got a catch!


On the shore of the wide world,
Well, it only took about a month, but one of the books I released for the BookAid International Release challenge on April 18th finally got caught! It's ridiculous how much of a buzz you get when someone picks up your book, takes it home, reads it and even joins bookcrossing :-)

I had released Amadeus by Peter Schaffer in the foyer of the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester. Kate (sister) and I had gone to see the play On the Shore of the Wide World. The foyer was full of people and I left 3 books there. By the interval, one had gone, so I have high hopes for the other 2 releases!

Journal entry by brainey-rainey from Manchester, England United Kingdom on Friday, May 27, 2005
I found the book in the Royal Exchange theatre. Having read and loved Shaffer's 'Equus' I decided to take it home. The style is skillfully musical without resorting to gimic, and the the plot is engaging and creative. I would loved to see this produced on stage, and will make an effort to watch the screen adaptation. Am releasing today in Manchester University's faculty of Arts. book rating: 9/10
