Wild Release #1103

It seems we have been waiting for spring for a really long time! The prognosticating groundhog in Punxsutawney said we were in for an early spring, but he was wrong. While we wait, why not head to the bandstand on the Diamond in Ligonier, Pa., where "Waiting for Spring Stories," by Bethany Roberts, is waiting for you?

Wild Release #1102

Another St. Patrick's Day called for another release of Frank McCourt's "'Tis." After spending the day in Ligonier, Pa., selling daffodils for the American Cancer Society, I stopped by Celtic Culture on East Main Street and left this Irishman's memoir on the stoop outside the front window. Happy St. Paddy's Day!

Catch #156!

"Weddings Are Murder" has found a new reader six weeks after being released at IKEA in Pittsburgh. "I didn't love the book," writes the AnonymousFinder, "but I do love this concept!"

Wild Release #1101

After lunching at Arby's earlier today, Mom and I had dinner with the boy next door, Bob Evans. I left Meg Cabot's "The Boy Next Door" on the bench outside the front door around 6:30 p.m.

Wild Release #1100

Just to be clear, leaving Christopher Pike's "The Eternal Enemy" at Arby's in Greensburg was not meant to be a themed release! I left it on the brick ledge outside the door around 1:30 p.m.

Catch #155!

I got a great journal entry from new member Sparklepooh12, who found "Watership Down" in Indiana, Pa., shortly after I released it back in September 2009: "My friend Shannon and I found this book while in Greensburg, PA for a weekend when our best friend got married. We took the travel opportunity to explore the local sights and after discovering that we were lucky enough to find ourselves in Jimmy Stewart's hometown and before leaving on Sunday, September 20th 2009, we visited the Jimmy Stewart museum. Upon viewing the Harvey statue outside the museum, we were very surprised to find this book. When we read the inside cover and learned about, it was very exciting and we considered it a small adventure. What a neat chance to share a reading experience together and with others while including the book in our own travels back to Kentucky." Sparklepooh12 had much more to say, so be sure to click the book image to read it all.

Wild Release #1095

I wonder if Kahless were here, would he help deliver us from the tyranny of high gas prices as he freed Klingon from the tyrant Molor with a bat’leth? In the hopes that he would be reincarnated, I left "Kahless," by Michael Jan Friedman, on top of one of the gas pumps at Sheetz in Greensburg. $3.49 a gallon!!! I remember my father being upset about the price going up to 60¢ a gallon. Who knew those would be the days?

Wild Release #1094

If your migration pattern passes by Twin Lakes Park in Greensburg, be sure to look for William Lishman's "Father Goose," which I set free around 2:40 p.m., on the ledge of the information board in the parking lot at the upper lake.

Wild Release #1093

Another day, another dinner out, another book release. I left "Seabiscuit," by Laura Hillenbrand, on one of the Adirondack chairs on the sidewalk of Red Lobster in Greensburg, before heading inside to indulge on a different kind of biscuit—those of the yummy Cheddar Bay variety.
