UPDATED: Jan 2011 – from the 1st January 2011 this will no longer be a site for the Edinbooks project, but a new project all together.
This is a project called 365. From here, I’ll try to write a post per day, a story per week. This is my place for story drafts and idea, apart from my other blog, http://www.elizadashwood.wordpress.com (Wordferret – the writer’s prompt blog)
Wish me luck.
From Edinbooks 2009
I’m a great lover of books. I’m constantly giving them as gifts and filling my arms at Waterstone’sand charity shops. The thing is, my bookcases could no longer cope. So, I decided to pass my books around, to set them free into the big wide world and see how far they travel. On Saturday 28 June 2009, with the help of a friend, I dropped 100 books all over the city of Edinburgh. The result was interesting, in addition to driving visitors to the blog, people have donated over 600 books and volunteered to help distribute them all over the city on Saturday 15th August 2009, during the height of the Edinburgh festival.
So, if you happen to find a book, lonely on a bench in at Waverley Station, at the Botanical Gardens, in a pub in Leith or in the back of a taxi, pick it up, take it home, visit the site, pass it on…,
I’ll be Tweeting book drops and pictures throughout the day, so have fun and happy reading!
