Just curious, that's why I'm asking.

If there are... my screen name there is boirina and on my bookshelf you will find some labels for books.

A couple of days ago in the Italian forum a proz.com member from Spain was looking for someone interested in book swapping.
See http://www.proz.com/topic/51618

Happy reading, Daniela

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,

Joanna



bookcrossing

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...

1. Read a good book (you already know how to do that)

2. Register it here (along with your journal comments), get a unique BCID (BookCrossing ID number), and label the book

3. Release 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!

Don't forget to add my screen name as the one who referred you. And visit my bookshelf if you want.

It is indeed a brilliant idea, isn't it?

I am glad you like it... Jul 22, 2006

I have been a bookcrosser for just a few months and... it's sort of addictive. In a nice way.
I have been winged today. I don't know who did it or why, but it makes me feel happy and touched.
If you have any doubts or want to talk about it, just send me an email. I'll be glad to share my experience with you.
