my twittering (mostly bookcrossing)  
  • 00:24 back from Dark Knight (which I keep wanting to call Dark Knight Returns). Now to find all those spoiler posts I skipped. #
  • 18:34 someone has given me wings on Bookcrossing! Thanks, whoever it was. #
  • 21:56 can't remember if I mentioned that about 2 weeks ago I got a catch from an April London release: www.bookcrossing.com/journal/2311233 #

Automatically shipped by LoudTwitter (and possibly tweaked by me)

What's wings please? I saw some on the site before and wondered but never found out.

It's like a paid account on livejournal. You get added features like no ads, more sort options when looking at bookshelves, the ability to post in the announcements forum, etc. More info here: http://www.bookcrossing.com/plus

The confusion arises because it was named for the little wings you used to get around your name (there might not have been any other benefits originally, I'm not sure), but recently they added a choice of graphics, not all wings (see a bunch here), so they renamed it to Members Plus. But "wings" rolls off the tongue better.

I later saw that they have an offer where you can buy wings for a bunch of people for a reduced price, so I guess that's why I got them. I have a suspicion, but I don't know who did it.

re: wings
You're welcome, I went shopping on the site and bought the year for myself and decided to give you the month, however they screwed up a little so to apologise they gave you two months and me until the end of next august.

Re: wings
Thank you! So it wasn't the bulk friends thing. That makes me more special :-)
