This is not an ordinary book: it's a BookCrossing book! BookCrossing books are world travelers - they like to have adventures and make new friends...and every once in a while they even write home to say what they've been doing.

This book is a souvenir from the 1991 eclipse that passed over Hawaii. Mom and I went to the Big Island on a tour with the Bishop Museum - and a giant cloud blocked the sun just at totality. It was still a fascinating experience, with the darkness very apparent, but we didn't get the full effect. Meanwhile, Dad & my brother saw the whole thing from our front yard. Sigh.

Here's another copy on my BookCrossing shelf (Mom & I each got one as part of the tour package).

I received this book as part of the Mary Zee's Biography of Things bookbox. While I did flip through it, I am not going to hang on to it and will send it back on its way to the next recipient in Silver Spring, Maryland.

Okay, so I got the book box back pre-pandemic. Pandemic sucked out much of my enthusiasm for anything and I have never logged any of the books.

I am finally feeling ready to start another round of the book box. PM me if you are interested. This book has only been seen by a few people, so it will be included.
