Hey, have you heard of BookCrossing.com?
It’s based on the premise that books yearn to be free. So we get to “release” them into the wild. With the special BookCrosing.com ID (or “BCID” for those in the know), others that find can have it for free and it can log in and give reviews. And you get to see where this book goes.
Sort of fun concept, isn’t it?
I’m also intrigued by the idea of the BookCrossing Zones. It gives you an idea where the gathering spots are in a community.
I rediscovered this site thanks to Hildy Gottlieb. It turns out I’d signed up in 2004 but had done nothing with it yet!
Now I’ve freed my first book. Check it out at:
And if you’re a BookCrossing person, I’d love to be added to your friends!
