BookCrossing is simply giving a book an identity and releasing it into the world, then watching its progress from person to person via the BookCrossing website, where each book has its own unique profile.
Some time ago I registered with BookCrossing and released a book ‘into the wild.’ What happened to that book is unknown to me as nothing was ever registered on the BookCrossing site. It has since been a long time and I’m about to release another book.
I have a box of books ready to go, but have been limited by a lack of a car from participating too much in the BookCrossing experiment. Now I’m ready to go again and hope to find good places to release books, where others will pick them up and read them, then pass them along (or keep them if they like – that is fine with me).
Now this is an idea I really like, but I won’t spend too much time describing what it is all about and how it is done. I’ll simply say that I’m signing up and looking forward to getting involved with this whole BookCrossing idea.
