Wild Releases #1013 - #1022
I have been to Fort Ligonier Days—a three-day festival commemorating the anniversary of the October 12, 1758, battle between British and French forces during the French and Indian War—many times over the years, but I had never been there for the Saturday morning parade before today. Sister No. 6 and I were up bright and early to beat the crowds and to catch the shuttle bus from the high school to the downtown area. There were plenty of people lining Main Street on each side, with all kinds of chairs set up, five and six deep in some places. Since everyone else had their attention focused on the parade route, it made it that much easier for me to pepper the area with BookCrossing books! In all, I released ten books: "Garfield Rolls On," by Jim Davis; "How Nancy Drew Saved My Life," by Lauren Baratz-Logsted; "Church Folk," by Michele Andrea Bowen; "Children of the Arbat," by Anatoli Rybakov; "Q-Squared," by Peter David; "The Berenstain Bear Scouts Meet Bigpaw," by Jan & Stan Berenstein; "Don't Stop," by Maureen Holohan; "Dipped, Stripped and Dead," by Elise Hyatt; "I, Freddy," by Dietlof Reiche; and "Mystery at Clareton Manor," by Kathleen Newberg.
