A fun way to read second hand books

A bit time consuming

Today, I went to my first Bookcrossing 'meet'. I signed up for Bookcrossing about two years ago, but to be honest, it all seemed a bit of a kafuffle to do, so I never got around to setting any books free. Bookcrossing.com A quick synopsis as I see it. Bookcrossing is an American idea, and it...

WARNING: this site is highly addictive. I discovered BookCrossing just a couple of months back and initially thought the idea of "liberating" books sounded surreal. After a quick look around the site I discovered there was so much to be found & I have been hooked ever since. Let me start by...

This site encourages you to get those books off your shelves (they're just sitting there), get a unique BCID (bookcrossing ID) for it, and let it go. You can leave them somewhere and hope someone finds them, send it through the mail, meet up and exchange books with another member...there are lots...
