BookCrossing

I just was pointed to a very cool site!

http://www.bookcrossing.com/

Have you ever heard of www.wheresgeorge.com? It's a site where you enter a dollar bill's serial number into a database, write the website on the bill, and then track where it goes by the people who find it and log it in.

BookCrossing takes that concept one step further. Say you've just read a great book. You register the book at the site, and then pass it on somehow. You can leave it on a park bench, in a cafe, donate it to charity, whatever. The next person who picks up the book (hopefully) notices the ID number for the book, reads it, and records a journal entry in the website. How cool is that, I ask???

I heard about this. It sounds interesting, but I don't know if I'd have the stamina to track it. Hmmm, maybe after I get through the next couple of weeks I'll try it out.

This does sound interesting -- wonder if sticky notes in library books would work?
