Book Crossing

Post by Betty Felon »

http://www.bookcrossing.com

This site may be old news, but I love this concept. Basically, you take a book you love (or hate, I guess) register it at this website, print out the label below, and then leave it in a public place. The person who finds the book not only gets to read it, but gets to log in and check out all the places it's been.

I will now keep an eyeball out for traveling books. And one copy of Walden is embarking tommorow at a smokey dive somewhere in the Chi.

i love this idea. my last roommate did it all summer, and she always felt really sneaky and excited whenever she got back from galavanting around town by foot, looking for the perfect drop off spot.
