As I wrote in one of my recent posts, I joined bookcrossing a few months ago. Last week, my first bookring arrived (bookring = controlled release of a book by mail, from one bc-member to the other until it arrives back at the owner): Sophie’s World. Up to now (as I’ve read about 100 pages) I really like it, but I also can understand why I wasn’t really able to understand all of it when I tried to read it the first time: I was about 8 back then and, never having heard about Philosophy and everything, the topic was just too complex to really get into it 😉
Right now, it is just an enjoyable read and opportunity to broaden my knowledge about Philosophy 🙂
Other than that I put my first postcards for postcrossing into the mailbox on Monday 🙂 It’s another website I stumbled over while fighting boredom in the office. The simple but intriguing idea is to send and receive surprise postcards from people all over the world. So I wrote five postcards: one each to the USA, China, Russia, Poland and Portugal. And now I’m waiting for them to arrive and get registered by the people who receive them. I just hope they won’t get lost in the mail.
