55. Release 100 books into the wild (not counting festivals or Book Thing donations)

Completed 11 September 2010

I spent the weekend in Maryland at Intervention with a stop at SPX, so I managed to not only complete my goal but exceed it. I'll continue to release books, of course, but it's kind of a pain to list each one individually. Release notes are enough trouble to remember.

99. Card Sharks in Rockville, MD
100. Swan Peaks in Rockville, MD
101. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil in Bethesda, MD
102. Silence of the Lambs in Bethesda, MD
103. Angels & Demons in Rockville, MD
104. Heir Apparent in Rockville, MD

The BookCrossing website recently rolled out a new version which is pretty much completely borked. I have high hopes that it will be gorgeous and amazing once the bugs are all fixed, but for now it's almost unusable. So it was with a bit of difficulty that I managed to make release notes and then find the journal entry links, since I currently cannot search my own bookshelf.

But oh well. Here's my updated list:

33. Ticktock in Elkton, MD
34. Desert Heat in Elkton, MD
35. Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell in Herndon, VA
36. The Devil Wears Prada in Herndon, VA
37. Tombstone Courage in Herndon, VA
38. Bridges of Madison County in Chantilly, VA
39. The Hot Zone in Beltsville, MD
40. The Sword and the Chain in Arlington, VA
41. The Sleeping Dragon in Falls Church, VA
42. The Legend of Huma in Falls Church, VA
43. Alien Agenda in Falls Church, VA
44. Naked Empire in Arlington, VA
45. The Silver Crown in Arlington, VA

Less than a week in, and I'm already making some progress.

88. Keep separate 101/1001 blog

You're looking at it. :)

9. Log 1001 miles on the stationary bike [21.6/1001]

When I go for 30 minutes on the bike, I invariably log 10.8 miles, which means it'll take me about 93 sessions to reach 1001 miles.

24. Read/listen to 250 books (not counting rereads) [2/250]

Started a quick list here so I don't have to worry about posting every single time I finish a book. Instead, I'll post links to the reviews in batches. Links will usually be to blog posts, but reviews that don't end up on my blog (and not all of them do) will be posted on GoodReads and likewise linked.

1. The Darkest Evening of the Year by Dean Koontz
2. Stupid History by Leland Gregory

55. Release 100 books into the wild (not counting festivals or Book Thing donations) [1/100]

Again, I put up a quick list so I don't go updating this every single time I release a book. But while I'm posting, I might as well mention:

1. The Birthday Boys in Herndon, VA (3/15/10)

93. Watch all of Dr. Who (first 10 Doctors)

A quick clarification: yes, I am well aware that not all the episodes are available. The goal is to watch all the Dr. Who that it is possible for me to watch. Duh. :P

70. Visit Japan

I leave tomorrow. w00t! :D
