Book Crossing


Here is an interesting idea about sharing books. I could see it working well in a smaller community or resort island.

What is BookCrossing?

n. the practice of leaving a book in a public place to be picked up and read by others, who then do likewise.

(added to the Concise Oxford English Dictionary in August 2004)

You’ve come to a friendly place, and we welcome you to our book-lovers’ community. Our members love books enough to let them go—into the wild—to be found by others. Book sharing has never been more exciting, more serendipitous, than with BookCrossing. Our goal, simply, is to make the whole world a library. BookCrossing is a book exchange of infinite proportion, the first and only of its kind.

Let’s get right down to it. You know the feeling you get after reading a book that speaks to you, that touches your life, a feeling that you want to share it with someone else? gives you a simple way to share books with the world, and follow their paths forever!

Sounds interesting, but I doubt I would ever do it too much. I will probably try it a couple of times when we are on vacation next week.
