Add pictures, text, stories, descriptions of Hoffnung’s work, or things inspired by it, anywhere there are unused pages. Please leave the original cartoons and the work of others unaltered.
Please relist within two weeks only on Bookmooch by the number given here, and pass on promptly when requested. Much time and thought goes into creating journals, it is sad when journals get stalled or lost.

Through A Glass, Alcohol

“Through A Glass, Alcohol — A journal of stories through drink” is a journal that starts off with a label or a marker of an alcohol and moves on to the story associated with that particular bottle of beer, wine, homebrew or spirit.
Alcohol is a part of many of our stories. Some times it’s no more than in the background, a casual observer of our social nights. Some times it plays a more sinister role, some times it enables.

Tell the story of your bottle, of your night.
From the journal:

“This journal is meant to be a pairing of labels — beer, wine, hard liquor, whatever one drinks — and the stories that they were a part of. Sometimes the stories are mundane. Sometimes sad, sometimes evil, sometimes great, sometimes unbelievable.
Tell us a story!”

When this journal is complete please reserve it for me (and notify me) (userID: wheelerc) and I will mooch it back from you. If you are unable to complete the journal within time or have any issues with it please contact me here and I’ll mooch it back again.



Casting a favourite book

Goodreads, on which site I review the books I read, had a new ‘game’ today, which involved casting the characters from your favourite book, and having the results published on your Facebook page. Since it involved giving them access to your Facebook settings, and possibly tampering with the privacy settings one has dictated there, I didn’t do it.

However it occurred to me it would make a fun journal, and I decided to cast the Bookmoochers involved in the new Bookmooch Journal Library Charity as the characters from Winnie the Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner. These are the original A.A. Milne characters not the Disney cartoons, and have the characteristics of the original characters.

Cast your Bookmooch special friends as the characters from one of your favourite books, and reserve it for them for a few days, so they can participate too if they wish.
Whether they are Journallers or not, please ensure they understand journalling and relist under the number opposite within two weeks of receipt. The BMJ Library Charity (id bmjl) and its six bookshelves, have been set up to try to recover missing and stalled journals, so please don’t add to our workload!
Have fun!
