In my daily look at some of the places in the Blogroll (in right-hand column), I was reminded of the existence of, now also in the Blogroll. I wish I had remembered about this neat idea, now in Beta version online, when my husband and I were recently downsizing. We donated hundreds of books, and it would have been cool to select a few of those and release them into the BookCrossing sphere.

Here’s the main idea, quoted from their website: “Grab a book of yours that you’re willing to share with others. It can be one you’ve loved, or one you never really want to read again. Got a second copy of the same book for your birthday? BookCross it! Does a favorite aunt [MR’s note: Gee, I wish they’d been a bit less ageist/sexist and said a favorite relative…] keep sending you books that she likes but you don’t? BookCross them! Just Label, Share & Follow!”

Visit the site and you’ll get a good idea quickly. If you have a minute, Comment here if you have used BookCrossing in the past and what happened.

Happy countdown week (to tax returns due)… we’re still rushing!

  1. Hi there! Someone in my Myspace group shared this website with us so I came to give it a look. I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Terrific blog and outstanding design and style.
