Pass the Book by the Numbers – Friday July 22, 2011
Week three of the 2011 longest pass contest features another long-distance international pass. Book 1073, registered in Tokyo, Japan on December 25, 2010, was passed 1093 miles this week to Shanghai, China. Book 1073 is the first copy of Pay the Piper sent to China, and is our second Pass the Book to find a home there, after book 484 was registered there in June 2010. Book 1073 is also the book with the third farthest single pass since July 1st, as well as one of our most-passed books.
Book 766 was registered for the third time this week, and three books were registered for the first time. With all of this activity, there are now more than 200 different registered copies of Pay the Piper out in the world to pass.
