Bookcrossing.com
Again with the internet technology forcing real-word interactions. This time a real goodie!! Where's George meets Geocaching, but with heavier and more interesting material. Tag your books then leave them places for folks to catch, read & re-release. What a great idea!!
Book sharing has never been more exciting, more serendipitous, than with BookCrossing. Our goal, simply, is to make the whole world a library. BookCrossing is a book exchange of infinite proportion, the first and only of its kind.

Let's get right down to it. You know the feeling you get after reading a book that speaks to you, that touches your life, a feeling that you want to share it with someone else? BookCrossing.com gives you a simple way to share books with the world, and follow their paths forever!
The "3 Rs" of BookCrossing...

1. Read a good book (you already know how to do that)
2. Register it, and label the book
3. Release it for someone else to read ...and get notified by email each time someone records journal entries for that book.

What a great idea... sharing... wouldn't it be neat if you could do that with your music and movies too?

I came across www.bookcrossing.com in a short item in the Guardian Online section. Since then I have both released and found books. It is a great idea.
