Book Crossing – Read & Release!
I love this concept. I just signed up (free of course – no credit card needed!) and listed my first book. I ‘released’ it this morning! Now I am excited to see where in the world it goes!
Here’s how it works:
Read a good book. Register it at BookCrossing. Label the book with its BookCrossing registration number and a short note about BookCrossing. Release it for someone else to read (give it to a friend, leave it on a park bench, donate it to charity, “forget” it in a coffee shop, etc.) and be notified by email each time someone records a journal entry for that book on BookCrossing.
I have heard how my Dad and other family members will sometimes finish reading a book when they are traveling and ‘accidentally-on purpose’ leave it in a public place for someone else to find. What a great way to pass on the love of reading!
