Back in October of 2004, Alicebird and I set up an OBCZ in the coffee shop on the ground floor of our building. Things were pretty hectic, and I somehow managed to forget the email address I had associated with the OBCZ’s bookshelf, which I was hoping to use to register books that were dropped off without BCID’s. Well, I finally managed to dig up the email address, which is effectively the “username” one needs to log in. (I did keep track of the password at least!) So this evening I updated the bookshelf profile with the street address, hours of operation and a map link of the location.
There were also three unregistered books on the shelf: Oldest Living Confederate Widow Tells All, The Dead of Jericho, and The Green Mile. I registered all 3 of them to the OBCZ. I’ve been wanting to read The Green Mile for some time, so I figured it was a sign that it was sitting on the bookshelf–I took the book home, journaled it, and started reading!
nyisutter used to keep a list of crossing zones, but had trouble maintaining it. The torch has been passed to pachydomo. I contacted him with our OBCZ info and he added it to the California OBCZ finder page. I still need to do a little more work to get this crossing zone set up as well as I would like, but it’s a lot better than it was!
