When browsing through the “Alice Bliss” copies on Book Crossing, we stumbled upon a touching story of one of the traveling books! The New Zealand and Australia journey previously blogged about has continued! Book Crosser Discoverylover was supposed to pass off the copy, but instead, personally hand delivered it to Sherlockfan on December 23rd in Upper Hutt, New Zealand! Read the below entry to learn more!
Discoverylover actually forgot to take the book to our Wellington Bookcrossers Christmas meeting but, kind young woman that she is, she hand delivered it to my home where she found me confined to bed and feeling very sorry for myself. At the time she came I was just about to start another book but a quick browse into “Alice Bliss” and I was hooked.
I wasn’t going anywhere and was able to read the book straight through in one session. Plenty of tissues in my bedside table were a help. I loved it. While I don’t remember exactly what my relationship with our four children when they were fifteen was like we do have three 15 year old grandchildren and I could emphasise with such a lot of the mental turmoil going on in the lives of that age-group in this book.
Sherlockfan is planning to pass the copy off to her daughter to read. We’re so excited for her to blog about her opinion! Want to continue following the journey yourself? Click on the picture of New Zealand below!
