Francesca, I got very intrigued by your posting as I had never heard of Bookcrossing before. So I just visited http://www.bookcrossing.com/ and... I love the idea! I'm definitely going to give it a try. Thanks for bringing it up
All the best,
n. the practice of leaving a book in a public place to be picked up and read by others, who then do likewise.
The "3 Rs" of BookCrossing...
a good book (you already know how to do that)
it here (along with your journal comments), get a unique BCID (BookCrossing ID number), and label the book
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 get notified by email each time someone comes here and records a journal entry for that book. And if you make Release Notes on the book, others can Go Hunting for it and try to find it!
