moooment: The cache is gone (luckily I "saved" the second wrecked logbook on my last visit).
The hide is gone (and it won't return).
The owner is gone (at least I won't be in Oxford as regularly as I used to).
The listing is gone (from now with the new year, space for fresh ideas).

Thank you for all creativity, friendly online logs, favorites, and the fun I had with the books :-)

How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:


*Forget everything you have learned about the use of books. This logbook is going to demand your entire attention. Wreck it – alone or with friends, eye for eye, page for page, scratch for dog-ear. Caress or torture it, use your gross and fine motor skills deliberately. But take your time! Invite it for a coffee, take it to a lecture, a festival or a boxing match. Use accessories from your handbag or search for tools in the city. Release your motivations and frustrations. Be creative, destructive, innovative. Now!

Just as everywhere else, also the Oxford libraries have their forgotten aisles, inside and outside. There are obscure corners where dusty and wrecked monographs are stored under piles that have not been moved for more than a decade (and won't be for the forseeable future). Have a look there and you will find. It’s an easy hide and you won’t need any further hints.
Yes, the cache is placed on university grounds but it has been approved by the responsible facilities manager. I do not want to hear any complaints from him, so be careful how you behave. Use stealth if necessary. Please be aware of the CCTVs around.
The title is to be taken literally at any rate. But still, please keep this geocache alive and your logs somewhat comprehensible. Online documentation of your efforts (reports, pictures etc.) will certainly be enjoyed by me and our fellow geocachers. Have fun!
This cache is the second of its kind. So if you ever make it to Mittweida, Saxony, visit Mach dieses Logbuch fertig*.
