As all good writers do, I was procrastinating a few weeks ago on Facebook. While scrolling mindlessly through the news feed I happen to come across a video of a Belgian woman who came up with the idea to hunt books instead of creatures (or whatever they are) from Pokemon.
What peaked my interested was not the wild success she had with this idea, but the idea itself!
Imagine, citizens of Windsor coming together to hunt for literature. What a world!
I shared the video asking someone to make this happen. Within a few minutes I received a message from another local author and all it said was lets do it.
I stared at the screen, unblinking, as I thought to myself you want this in Windsor, so do make it happen.
With one more local author on our team, Book Hunters was created, organized, and launched!
I'm telling you, when my family and I went around the city hiding books we had SO MUCH FUN.
My children (5 and 8 years old) were really into it. After we hid our books I uploaded a pictures of the books, and included hints of the locations, to the Facebook page. The excitement on my little guys face when his post was updated to FOUND was the reassurance I needed to know that this... this is going to be great.
I cannot wait to see what friendships and adventures awaits Windsor and Essex County with Book Hunters Windsor.
