Wild Releases #648 - #667

This is a big weekend for Pittsburgh: not only is it Independence Day, with an always awesome fireworks show, the Pirates are playing at home and Pittsburgh is playing host to the Pittsburgh Regatta, the Furries Convention, and the Mensa Annual Gathering. BookCrosser and Mensan stinalyn was unable to attend the Mensa Annual Gathering this year, so she asked BookCrossers in the Pittsburgh area to wild release some books during the convention. I gladly complied. Twenty books are now in the wild in or around the Omni William Penn Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh. They are:
