It feel amazing that I know only have 96 books left to send travelling to reach my goal and 244 days left to do it in. The countdown has been in triple digits for so long it feels like a great achievement to be in double digits. To know that there are 269 books out there in the world that have or are being read by complete strangers gives me a feeling of accomplishment.
I often think of the stats, such as what if only 20% of the books I have sent travelling get passed on how many people will actually get to read a travelling book? How many books I have I managed to save from landfill? Is there a chance that some of the travelling books could end up in landfill? How much have the local charity shops made from my purchases and has that made a difference to someone who may end up with a travelling book?
