Yes… in another break from our usual Sunday schedule, I thought I’d come back to you with more Book Fairy news! The first two books have gone out into the wild; one in Cafe Nero earlier on in the week and another in a burlesque club of all places.
I must admit, I’m finding this a little harder than I thought I would. 1) I actually find it really hard to leave a book on a seat or a table… my instinct is to pick it up and guard it with my life. But that’s because I love books. 2) I just keep forgetting to leave the book behind! I have been into several coffee shops this week and a couple of restaurants and it wasn’t until Friday night that I even remembered The Kite Runner. I made a point of taking it out of my bag early and putting on the seat in the club, so that when I got up I could just leave it behind. Of course someone spots me leaving the seat with the book there, so I ended up just handing it to the chap and calling it a freebie.
Hopefully the next few books will be easier. I’m going to do them at a rate of two a week and try to be creative about where I put them. The next one, probably something by James Patterson, will be left either in a phone booth, or at a bus stop. I also want to get a couple onto trains (as that’s somewhere that people are always wanting something to read) so I need to go somewhere. If I had thought about it, I would have given one to Dave, as he did some travelling this week, but never mind.
At least I have a plan for the week now. I find that such a thing is important; at least that way, if I know the small things I want to do, I can take small steps towards getting them done. And I won’t get all mixed up and confused and forgetful. Hopefully.
What about you guys? What are you plans for the week ahead? Do you find that writing things down, or having a couple of ideas before hand helps you achieve your goals? What might you suggest for a scatter brained mum of twins like me?
