WHERE BOOKS GO TO REST

 

I came across this interesting site and thought I would share it with you.

     

http://www.bookcrossing.com

 

The website encourages people to Read, Register, and then Release their books "into the wild" and then track where they go and the lives they touch. Great concept... share your books and follow their progress forever. Best of all, it's FREE.

I sent several books into the wild myself but haven't gotten the opportunity to track its progress.  The site is free to register and you can make a lot of new friends, in your area or around the world, that share the same interests of reading.

 

One funny story I have is a day when I was sending one of my books into the wild.  I left it on a bench in the subway and someone thought I had accidentally left it there.  I smiled and thanked them for their kind gesture but as soon as they went into a train car, I left the book on the bench again.  On the site, I left a message as to where I was going to leave the book so if someone wanted to go looking for it, it had to be in the exact spot.  Of course, you can't stop someone else from getting it but that's part of the fun.

 

When you leave your book, you write a little message provided by Book Crossing so you can track it and it allows the finder a little insight as to the entire process.

 

Help spread the word by forwarding this to your friends, and of course be sure to visit.  They currently have 661,860 members and 4,684,737 books registered.  Join the fun and get a free membership.
