62a. Send 10 RABCKS
Current Progress: 3/10
RABCK, which I pronounce "rabbick" but some people pronounce "r-back", stands for Random Act of BookCrossing Kindness, and generally means sending someone a book they didn't request. For me, it means I do a wishlist search for a book I have in my hands and PM folks to ask if they're still interested. Not everyone keeps their wishlist up to date.
After catching up on a large number of book reviews, I browsed wishlists and found three folks to send books to: one in Florida, one in Wisconsin, and one in Utah. Interesting journaler distribution: one I bought at the dollar store but didn't read, one I picked up at the convention in Sweden from an Austrian BookCrosser (and recently read), and one that Cookie gave me as a sort-of joke that I ended up listening to on audio. The packages will go in the mail tomorrow.
I'm pretty picky about my RABCKing: I only count books I send via post (so it doesn't count if I give it to a BCinDC person), I only mail domestically, and I only contact people who have been active recently (that is, their bookshelf shows they've released a book, caught a book, or posted in the forums within the last four weeks). And most of the books I read aren't on people's wishlists, whether because it's too obscure or because it's so new (like most of the books I receive for review).
All the same, it's kind of fun to send people presents, so next time I have a fair number of availables I'll have to go browsing again.
